Smooth and Satisfying

Visit Oak Street’s smoothie and juice destination
February 4th, 2015 by: Lianna Patch

Locating D’Juice for the first time can be a little confusing. The little juice and smoothie bar is tucked inside Patchworks Market on Oak Street, meaning that visitors need to take a few steps up and peer inside the shop’s airy, wood-accented interior to see the counter.

Take those steps — they’re worth it! D’Juice serves a colorful menu of fresh fruit smoothies and fresh-pressed juices, including neighborhood favorite It’s Not Easy Being Green. This smoothie of frozen mangoes, peaches and bananas is blended with freshly juiced cucumber, green apple, kale, spinach and green pepper for a bright green, sweetly refreshing treat. 

You can also put together your own juice or smoothie creation from more than a dozen available ingredients. Ginger and wheatgrass shots, though pricey, can add extra flavor and nutritional benefits. Be warned: Those who are trying to find more health-conscious options may be tempted by the array of cookies and cakes sometimes on offer here. 

D’Juice has plenty of space, with big, wooden tables where you can sit and enjoy your juice. There’s also local art on sale courtesy of Patchworks Market. Free WiFi often brings in Riverbend professionals who pop in and out for a light, working lunch. 8237 Oak St., (504) 302-1965,
