It can be tough to tell cage-fed chickens from free-range, and even tougher to discern an organic head of lettuce from a genetically engineered head of lettuce with the body of a lion. Save the time you'd spend deliberating with today's Groupon to Juice & Java in Aventura. Choose from the following options:
- For $8, you get one 16-ounce smoothie and any standard salad, including the large fresh-fruit salad (up to a $16.90 value).
- For $14, you get two pitas or wraps and two 16-ounce smoothies (up to a $28.90 value).
- For $16, you get two J&J combination platters and two 16-ounce smoothies (up to a $31.80 value).
Juice & Java prides itself in a menu filled with drinks and organic ingredients all pulled directly and unadulterated from their natural birthplaces. Made without added sugar or unhealthy additives, the fruit smoothies attack devious thirsts with subtle flavor combinations such as strawberry-banana or honeydew, watermelon, banana, and cantaloupe. Smoked salmon cavorts among pieces of fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil as part of a salad menu that also includes J&J’s custom platters—medleys of vegetables served with the customer’s choice of tuber-, grain-, and protein-based nourishment, such as organic tofu or grilled tilapia. Meanwhile, spinach, tofu, and whole-wheat wraps unfurl in the stomachs of eager diners like a diner invitation written on a Fruit Roll-Up, and an abundance of vegan items makes the menu suitable for herbivores.
Any salad or wrap can be customized with numerous add-ons (an additional $1.95–$5.50) ranging from avocado to baked falafel, and shots of soy protein, ginseng, and other health boosters (an additional $1–$1.50) can increase a smoothie’s nutritional potency and confidence around its high-school crush. Patrons can sidle up to the bar seating or take their entrees outdoors for a personal sun-baking.
