Let’s face it: DC summer is HOT. It’s humid. It’s physically uncomfortable. We sweat, we drink cold cocktails and craft beer all afternoon because it’s too muggy to do much else. But what about those days when you can’t escape to a nearby brunch patio or you have to do this thing called YOUR DAY JOB?? We’re so glad you asked! ;)
This summer we’re working hard to bring you what we think is THEE key to surviving DC summer: The cold pressed juice eat/drink summer hybrid. We’ve packed a few of our hydration favorite flavors with fresh, all organic (always organic!) fruit and vegetables to keep you cool and full without feeling weighed down. Currently in store are our Summer Melon Soup, Beet Chia Seed Lemon-Aid (click link to see close up!) and Watermelon Gazpacho (pictured above). Our Pure Chia with signature Daily Green juice is always available year round also!
Today we launched a very exciting partnernship with our DC friends and fellow small business owners, Tiny Grocery, to bring cold pressed juice to the DMV where you want it (and WHEN you want it) most! Current locations include Xtend Barre in Old Town, Mint Club Spa (downtown DC, we’re back!) and WeWork (641 S. Street). We look forward to expanding locations as the summer continues! Check out our Facebook page for more information and to learn more about Tiny Grocery.
We’re proud to be carrying THE ONLY RAW coconut oil in the WORLD from US-Based indie company, Skinny & Co Coconut Oil! Come in for your oil pulling, skin softening, body butter, coconut oil cooking needs!

Going away this weekend and want to take us with you?? Now you can! This weekend only we’re offering a grab-and-go, convenient, COOLER BAG with 6 seasonal cold pressed juices (2 blueberry lemonade, 2 cucumber, 2 watermelon), 1 STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE (chiaseed!) smoothie and a vanilla maca latte for you to take to the beach, BBQ or poolside party! We’ve selected flavors which are geared towards #hydration (hello, hangover aid!) and also ones that work wonderfully as a no-sugar-added cocktail mixer (cucumber mojito anyone??), plus a cold pressed coffee and new, customer inspired shake that tastes just like the real deal dessert. Order online HERE or call customer service at 301.246.0509. Limited supply in store starting tomorrow but available for order NOW.
It’s been a busy couple of weeks for us as we transition into the summer months with seasonal flavors and new food! In the midst of all the excitement we were THRILLED to have the opportunity to team up with friend and collegue, Melissa Jones of Goodsoil Events, an organization and #girlboss both near and dear to us. Good Soil Produces Good Food was held last Wednesday, on a beautiful evening in our Bethesda Row location. Stories of food, health and soil were shared by guest speakers: Annita Seckinger (soil scientist), Daniel Brafman (holistic health & performance coach speaker) and ours truly, Amy Waldman. We dined on our signature green juice, a seasonal favorite strawberry lemonade, thai quinoa bowls (being prepped below) and a GIANT bowl of kale chips. Never one to say no to an adventure (especially if it’s an organic food one!) Melissa and team allowed us to run a new seasonal smoothie (orange, banana, pienapple and kale) as well as a truly on-the-spot cinnamon-banana cashew “ice cream” with acai blueberry crunch topping. Thanks for everything GoodSoil Events, we can’t wait for round two! Check out more fun photos from the night (like our girl Miss Dixie trying her hand as a #coldpressed (mini chia pudding) cocktail waitress here on our instagram).
