Behold, A New Summer Obsession That's Actually Making Us Healthier

sweetpress_1slide
If there's anything we like more than getting smarter without actually trying (hello, Words With Friends), it's getting healthier without breaking a sweat. And lucky for us, the fellas at Sweetgreen have heard our lazy-girl cries — just in time for summer, they're rolling out Sweetpress, a line of organic, cold-pressed juices that are literally so tasty, you'll be happy to swap that soda for one.
Made from ultra-fresh goodies like spinach, kale, carrots, ginger, watermelon, and mint, these modest bottles pack a serious punch when it comes to nutrients. And they come in six flavor combos designed for specific needs, whether you're craving an energy boost or just want to make amends for last night's margaritas and queso. Right now, we're hooked on the Detox and Hydrate formulas, which are oh-so-refreshing during this heat wave.
And for the extra-lazy (us, included), soon you'll be able to have juices delivered to your door; for now — but for now, you can pick them up for $6 to $7 a pop at Sweetgreen's Logan Circle location. Now that's a drinking habit we can support.
Where: Sweetgreen, 1471 P Street NW; 202-234-7336.
