Feeling hot in Havasu? Try a delicious cold smoothie or a frosty glass of fresh squeezed juice at one of these four favorite local locations! Fresh juices and smoothies are not only great for you, but they also taste amazing. More importantly, they are terrific for taming the extreme heat that Lake Havasu City is known for during these upcoming summer months!
- 1. Keva Juice: This is my favorite place to get any kind of smoothie concoction in Lake Havasu City. You have to try Keva Juice! I recommend the “All That Razz.” It’s a luscious blend of raspberry juice, fresh strawberries, bananas, and creamy orange sherbet. They have such an amazing menu variety: Red Bull Blends, Orchid Sensations, Island Blends, Berry Blends, Fresh-Squeezed Juices, Keva Tempters- the choices are endless! The other awesome thing I like about Keva Juice is each drink comes with a free energizer boosters such as: immunity, weight-loss, vitamins, stress relief, and protein. All of these “gizers” are mixed into your smoothie, adding even more health benefits. Take a look at the Keva Juice menu and try one next time you are in town! I dare you to take a shot of their wheat grass! Located at 1641 McCulloch Blvd N, Lake Havasu City AZ 86403. Phone number: (928) 854-5382.
- 2. River Juice and Java: River Juice and Java is perfect for the active health conscious tourist or local Havasuian. They offer a great selection of nourishing gluten-free and vegan items, along with delicious 100% whole fruit smoothies with no added sugars, fresh squeezed juices, and refreshing coffees. They are located right on Swanson Avenue in the center of town, (across from Movies Havasu) so it’s a really nice place to stop when you leave the park or get off the lake. The décor is cute; the staff is warm and welcoming. River Juice and Java is located at 151 Swanson Ave. Lake Havasu City, AZ 86403. Phone number: (928) 302-1970.
- 3. Java Rush: Java Rush is fantastic! I love them. They were Lake Havasu’s first independently owned Coffee Shop, and they have consistently showed a huge support for local musicians and artists. Not only do they serve delicious Italian blended coffee and sodas, but they have absolutely divine smoothies, teas and juices! Their blended Chai Tea is superb; I guarantee it will be one of the best Chai’s you will ever have! Try a sweet and satisfying summer strawberry smoothie, with a custom special flavored whipped cream! They also offer delicious grilled Panini’s, homemade soups and fluffy pastries. Java Rush is a great place to just sit and catch up with a friend. Located within the Smith’s Grocery Store Plaza, on 2231 N. McCulloch Blvd, #107 Lake Havasu City, AZ 86403. Phone number: 928-854-5282.
- 4. Cady and Cole’s Water & Ice: This place is a little kid’s (and a grown-up’s) sweet dream! They have original Thrifty’s ice cream, genuine Hawaiian shaved ice, blended fresh lemonades, and of course teas, juices, and smoothies! This charming take on a classic ice cream parlor will leave your heart feeling nostalgic for simple times, and your appetite feeling happy and satisfied. Indulge yourself in a cookie ice cream sandwich to beat the heat! Cady and Cole’s now offers a shot of blast into your fresh fruit smoothie for a great pick-me-up! The neat thing about this is one blast shot is it is equivalent to drinking one Red Bull, but much healthier for your body. They can also pour it over your shaved ice for a little kick. The staff is friendly, complete with a casual and laid back atmosphere. Located at 34 North Lake Havasu Avenue, Lake Havasu City, Arizona. Phone number: (928) 854-7757.
