Whether you’re looking for a more palatable way to get your daily dose of fruits and veggies or a healthy breakfast alternative that you can consume on the go, a smoothie is a convenient and tasty option. But not all smoothies are healthy for you. Many contain unnecessary sugars, sweeteners and preservatives that your body can do without.

Truce, Minnesota’s first and only 100% organic fresh-pressed juice shop, believes in using fresh, organic ingredients to create smoothies that not only taste good, naturally, but are good for you. Opened in Uptown Minneapolis in April of 2013, Truce produces fresh-pressed juice on-site daily, via a hydraulic press that is used to extract the maximum amount of liquid from a variety of fresh fruits and veggies. Truce juices may be purchased in-store and bike delivery is available to uptown and downtown Minneapolis (get the bike delivery map here).

If you don’t have time to stop in to Truce for a smoothie, try making your own at home. Truce has graciously provided several healthy smoothie recipes that can easily be whipped up in just a few minutes.
