With beach season in full swing, quench your thirst—and add more produce to your diet—with these fresh juices

Green Dream
Huriyali
Don’t let this drink’s grassy color deter you. Among Huriyali’s huge selection of fresh-pressed sips, this one stands out for its refreshing quality, courtesy of kale, cucumbers, apples, raspberries, kiwi, ginger, and mint. www.huriyali.com

The G.F.H.
Five Loaves Juice Bar
Fans of the downtown sandwich shop should pop into the juice bar next door. Order the G.F.H. (named for the eatery’s parent company, GlowFisch Hospitality): a blend of apples, pineapples, celery, cucumbers, and greens. www.fiveloavescafe.com

Bright Eyes
Basic Kitchen
Chock-full of vitamin A and beta-carotene (both nutrients vital for healthy vision), Basic Kitchen’s aptly named juice contains carrots, oranges, apples, and zippy lemon. Sip, and you’ll clearly see why it’s on our list. www.basickitchen.com

Charcoal Lemonade
The Daily
Come over to the dark side with The Daily’s ink-hued juice, which gets its color from organic activated charcoal (said to have detoxifying properties). The goth lemonade is sweetened with agave and coconut. www.shopthedaily.com

Red
Clean Juice
When your immunity needs a boost, beets have your back. The bright, antioxidant-rich vegetable combines with apples, carrots, and lemons in Clean Juice’s “Red” variety. Find the café in Mount Pleasant and on Calhoun Street downtown. www.cleanjuice.com
