Juice Baby was created by 25-year-old Victoria Smith, a corporate defector turned healthy chef, who was able to secure a spot outside the Hayground School in Bridgehampton, which is conveniently located next to fitness-focused businesses. (In addition to Soul and Physique, personal training studio Personal Best is also located in the Butter Lane Barn.)
Smith sources as much of the produce as possible from local farms, like McKay and Satur, and her staff juices it fresh to order (in a Nutrifaster 450, if you must know). Popular blends include the Renegade Lemonade (kale, spinach, celery, apple, lemon, ginger) and the Skinny Green Bitch (pear, kale, spinach, celery, cucumber). “The spin ladies LOVE this,” Smith says. “Everyone goes ‘Oh, I’m the skinny green bitch.'” The 16-ounce juices are $10, 20-ounce are $12.
Here’s the smartest part: Juice Baby allows fitness class attendees to place orders before class, so that when they’re sweaty and ready to go, their juice (or smoothie) is waiting for them. —Lisa Elaine Held
