Hamptons Juice Tour Part One- The Juicy Naam

Hamptons Juice Tour Part One- The Juicy Naam

Whenever I travel for any period of time I always make sure I know what my green juice options are where I am going. One of the many, many things I adore about The Hamptons is the plethora of spots to get green juice. While I am here I never have to worry about getting my daily juice in!

Last week I decided to spend a particularly rainy day going on a little Hamptons green juice tour with my sister. Betsey is not a green juice drinker but I still thought it would be fun to have her along to see what she would and would not order at my favorite juicy Hamptons haunts. Plus, I think she enjoyed the adult time away from her eight month old twins!

Our first stop was The Juicy Naam in East Hampton. The Juicy Naam is an amazing juice bar that sells local produce, prepared raw foods, supplements and more. I also hear that Giuliana, the owner creates amazing custom cleanses for clients.

Their menu of organic juices and smoothies is extensive. Usually I stop by in the late morning post workout at Soul-Cycle, Chaise 23 or KamaDeva Yoga to get a "Moon" juice ( or two). The combination of cucumber, kale, pear, lemon and parsley is perfectly refreshing and green. While I usually do not like fruit in my juice I make an exception at the Juicy Naam. My juice never tastes too sweet or fruity.

Our juice tour didn't start until the later afternoon and I had already had my daily green juice so I decided to get a smoothie instead. I only ever drink green juice on empty stomach and didn't' want to risk the pain and bloating so late in the day!I ordered an "I Am Grouded" smoothie which is made with coconut water, vital mineral earth, cacao nibs, almonds and banana. Bananas do not agree with me so well ( I find them bloating) so I asked for blueberries instead. I also added some kale to give my smoothie a green infusion! My concoction was really delicious. Betsey ordered an "I Am Cacao" which is made with hemp milk, cacao nibs, cacao powder, almonds and bananas. It look so decadent I just had to try a sip. It was delicious as well!

Although this was technically a juice tour I fully enjoyed my green smoothie. Betsey loved hers too! From the Juicy Naam we moved on to WELLNest in Sag Harbor which I will tell you all about tomorrow!
