14 Best Smoothie Bars in Austin
Committed to providing its customers with the most robust and health-conscious foods, this smoothie bar has it all. Alexis and Steve Schulze co-founded Nékter Juice Bar in 2010. According to Iconic Life, Alexis grew up a vegetarian but didn’t like vegetables as a child. However, as an adult, she discovered new recipes and ways to eat healthy. Seeing a need in the market, Alexis and Steve teamed up to create Nékter Juice Bar. They were pushed to offer the health benefits of smoothies and juices using their own recipes, and the company soon began franchising.
Now with stores across the United States (130 stores from Florida to Colorado), downtown Austin is in the Seaholm district. This clean, modern boutique has a calming atmosphere, thanks in part to the beautiful green tiled floor across the front of the bar. With an open preparation area, you can watch Nékter’s staff whip up your smoothie.
Nékter Juice Bar offers wellness bowls and shots as well as its range of liquids. For smoothies, there are regular smoothies and functional smoothie lines. Regular smoothies are berry and fruit based with juice, cashew milk, coconut water, and agave nectar. Functional smoothies offer immunity boosting and energizing drinks. The smoothie stop also offers very simple smoothies like the Orange Crush flavor with orange juice, strawberry and agave nectar, as well as more complex smoothies like the Tropical Cooler with spinach, kale , pineapple, banana, coconut flakes and coconut water.
