9th Street Juice Works  Stop by 9th Street Juice Works at Huckleberry's for a large selection of replenishing fresh-squeezed juices. The bar offers a variety of unique infusions for its juices, including spirulina, chlorophyll, ginseng and bee pollen. If you're feeling under the weather or need a warmup in the winter months, try a hot juice like the BumbleBee (apple, pear, cardamom, lemon and honey). 926 S. Monroe St. • 624-1349 • huckleberrysnaturalmarket.com

BEET It Up Mobile Juice Bar  In October 2013, John Gardner and Brandi Elder turned a 1969 Prowler trailer into a mobile raw juice and smoothie bar. They've since upgraded to a bona fide food truck, but their beet-based menu has continued to bring organic goodness to local farmers markets, music festivals and even a few area weddings. BEET It Up is only in service during events, but it is usually booked every weekend throughout the summer. Gardner and Elder often park at local farmers markets and use local produce for juicing. Check Facebook to track down their latest location. 768-5646 or 208-755-0847 • facebook.com/Beetitupmobilejuicebar

BIJA Organic Juicery and Kombucha Bar  If you're in the Perry district, look for BEET It Up's more elegant, stationery younger sibling. BIJA ("seed" in Sanskrit) opened in April 2015 inside the Buddhio yoga studio. The bar serves organic juices made of local produce whenever possible, with multiple flavors of home-brewed kombucha on tap each day. BIJA doesn't just source produce from local farmers; it composts all of its waste and shares it with farmers as well. Drop in for a yoga class and get your daily dose of fruits and veggies while you're at it. 915 S. Perry St. • 818-9700 • facebook.com/bijaorganicjuicery

Guice  Guice is the perfect spot for juice or a smoothie on the go. The South Hill drive-thru opened up shop in September 2014 and has been squeezing and serving completely organic and dairy-free drinks ever since. The tiny gray hut is bursting with fruits and veggies delivered fresh from Spokane Produce, making it a worthy stop on your way up or down the Hill. 4502 S. Regal St. • 230-0946 • facebook.com/GUICESPOKANE

Method  Going on its third year in business, Method was one of the first places to introduce the juice bar concept to Spokane. All of its juices are organic, gluten free, raw and vegan, and are served in 100 percent compostable containers. Once you become a regular, you'll want to pick up one of Method's reusable Mason jars for a discount on every juice you buy. The bar will soon offer online ordering so downtowners can snag a fresh juice without a wait during the lunch hour. In the meantime, grab a bottle of their cold-pressed juice if you're on the go; it's squeezed and bottled each morning. 718 W. Riverside Ave.• 473-9579 • methodjuicecafe.com

Pilgrim's Market Juice Bar & Smoothie Station  Forget about grabbing a latte while getting groceries — the in-house juice bar at Pilgrim's Market in Coeur d'Alene will squeeze you a cup of all-organic juice to give your shopping trip (and body) a boost. Pilgrim's has poured its commitment to natural and organic foods right into its juice and smoothie bar, so you can rest assured that you're drinking the good stuff. 1316 N. Fourth St., Coeur d'Alene • 208-676-9730 •pilgrimsmarket.com/PilgrimsMobile/

The Wellness Bar  Since opening Coeur d'Alene's first juice bar in July 2014, owners Monica and Tait Engebretsen say they have poured their "heart and soul" into the business, creating a quaint, fresh-squeezed haven for North Idahoans, from crossfit buffs to flocks of kids after school. If you're not into juice, the bar also offers smoothies, açai bowls and fresh coconuts that are cracked to order. They don't only do food and drinks; the Wellness Bar focuses on all-around health. Stop by for periodic wellness chats and demonstrations. 312 Fourth St., Coeur d'Alene • 208-665-9098 • niwellnessbar.com
