As if Las Vegas didn’t have enough juice shops, there’s another to add to the mix (and general juice-loving-hysteria). This time, it’s in the form of Pressed for Juice (don’t confuse them for Pressed Juicery like we initially did) at The District’s new parking lot annex and over in Summerlin.
Pressed makes it super easy to order juice. They’ve numbered and named all of their juices, list the ingredients and tell you exactly why you need each juice … all on a big menu board behind their long bar.
So, let’s talk about their program real quick before we dive into the vegan food options — and they do have some.
The juices here are all cold-pressed from local organic Las Vegas farmers markets and SoCal markets, 100 percent raw, dairy-free, gluten-free and non-GMO. We dig the #14, Bloody Beetroots packed with beets, carrots, tomatoes, lemons, cilantro, jalapeño, turmeric and more (the antioxidant-packed juice is good for hangovers and brain health). Want to increase your libido (of course you do 😉 ), it’s the #3, Nojito, with watermelon rind, pineapple and mint.
They also have nut milks that are about as good as any dessert you could consume. If you’re watching what you’re putting into your body. Our personal go-to is the Dos Leches, made with filtered water, almonds, hazelnuts, dates, vanilla beans, maple syrup and lava salt which is good for your bone, joint and nervous system health and also appetite management.
If you’re sweet tooth needs some TLC, they’ve also got smoothies and shakes made with your choice of almond or banana ice cream and filled with healthy stuff like kale.
Can’t make up your mind as to what you want? You’re in luck. Pressed for Juice also offers flights so you can sample all the things. Plus, when you check in on social media, you earn a complimentary shot (hint: order the Fireball made with turmeric, cayenne and black pepper, and orange).
For food, Pressed for Juice’s vegan offerings include acai bowls, like the Swole with acai (naturally), vegan protein, banana, almond butter, hemp granola and hemp seed and strawberries; salads such as a killer vegan Caesar and Quinoa Spinach Salad; snacks and chia puddings made in the nut milks.
