IT DOESN’T HAVE TO TASTE LIKE GRASS, JUST BECAUSE IT’S GREEN.
Green juice is great for you – it can and should taste great, too! Our nutritious blends of fruits and vegetables are brimming with flavors you’ll love. Whether you’ve been enjoying the benefits of green juice for years or are trying it for the first time, you’ll find a welcoming, knowledgeable staff at Thirst ready to serve you. You can also check out our “Juice Jargon” below for explanations of some of the more common (but sometimes misused) terms relating to green juice and our other products.
RAW, VEGAN, GLUTEN FREE, SUSTAINABLE
All of the products we make are vegan and gluten free, and our juices are raw, too. Choosing plant-based foods drastically reduces the environmental impact of what you eat. Our 100% vegan menu means that the food we make contributes to less greenhouse gas emission, less water usage, and less overall environmental degradation than food made from animal products. We compost much of our organic waste, and our cups and other disposable items are made from plants and are commercially compostable.
