Atlanta is known for its amazing food places, hospitality, and very hot weather but did you know there are many tasty drink shops? Today, I will be giving you all the 411 on the best places to get a nice cold drink on a hot Atlanta summer day.
Juiceheads ATL sells healthy juices to their community. The company is a black-owned business that strives to make their community healthier on juice at a time. Their juices hold more nutritional value than if you were to eat a regular fruit or vegetable. What’s better than drinking something good that’ll also make you look even better? Their juices have detoxing agents that are beneficial for digestive health, skin health, PH balancing and even natural energy boosting. As described on their website, Juiceheads ATL drinks are organic and soy-free smoothies with plant-based protein included. Some of their drinks include Summertime, which contains pineapple, dragonfruit, coconut, and banana (my personal favorite) and Mudpie, which contains cacao nibs, peanut butter, and banana. You definitely will not have to worry about breaking the bank when looking to buy these drinks because they are highly cost efficient! This shop is located on Piedmont Road in the city of Atlanta, Ga.
