In need of healthy drink options for your morning and afternoon? Well worry no longer because I have the solution and it is called Fresco Juice & Fruit Bar! This fairly new juice bar is located in a fairly new building in downtown El Paso that only helps give the juice bar a very modern, big city feel. You can find this delicious and affordable juice bar at 212 E. Mills Ave.
The owner, Rebeca Talamantes got inspired to open a juice bar like Fresco because she believes that it is important to create new healthy eating and drinking habits for the city. She wants to help the community realize that healthy can definitely mean tasty and that people should be interested in the food and drinks they consume.
Like I mentioned, Fresco has a very urban modern feel and this is not a coincidence. Talamantes created the concept for the juice bar after a trip she took to New York. She realized that New York had many healthy options available, while El Paso sadly did not. She took the New York concept and also applied it to the names of her drinks. All the names are inspired by museums, avenues, buildings, Boroughs, hotels and other attractions found in New York. Talamantes decided a downtown location would be ideal because just like New York, she wanted to be surrounded by historical buildings and all the new renovations that are happening.
You may be asking yourself, what makes the menu at Fresco so great? Well Fresco strives to give its customers as much variety as possible. They want to cater to different tastes and benefits that people are looking for. They provide drinks that have benefits involving antioxidants, vitamins, protein, weight loss, digestion, immune system, healthy skin, energy, brain boost, minerals, among many others. The menu has been perfectly selected to provide customers with as many benefits as possible.
You can go to Fresco and enjoy many of their smoothies, raw juices, cold pressed juices, along with fruit bowls, acai bowls, and wraps. I recommend trying the Metropolitan, the Broadway, and the Empire. Don't be afraid to try something new, and don't be afraid to ask for help when choosing a drink!
As Talamantes says "The first step to a healthier lifestyle is creating a routine, it is incredible what our bodies and minds can do if we take proper care of them, and that is our mission, embracing a healthy lifestyle and spreading it everywhere we go."
Go make a trip downtown and try one of their yummy drinks!
