Even if you're not on a juice cleanse, there's something life affirming about sucking down a cold cup of nature's sweet nectar after a carb-heavy lunch. Here's a list of where to find some juice.
Founded by health and fitness enthusiasts Myron Pang and Venessa Toh, Antidote has different juice packs available to help you achieve various goals. The weight loss pack ($89) has six low-calorie juices that you can have alongside a lean and green lunch. Other packs include a skin rejuvenation pack ($99) or a pre- and post-workout pack ($99). The former uses fruits rich in antioxidants while the latter's a chemical- and preservative-free alternative to sports drinks.

Conveniently located near Tanjong Pagar MRT at Icon Village, Mission Juice serves the CBD crowd with healthy treats like fresh juices, nut milk and frozen yogurt. Each bottle of juice is cold-pressed to ensure that the fruits do not oxidise and lose their nutrients during the juicing process.
A set of four bottles start from $25 but opt for the Fabulous Four set ($32) to get a breakfast juice that comes with a shot of protein powder, a green juice, a chia seed drink and cinnamon nut milk.
Made from Australian produce, bottled in Melbourne and flown straight to Singapore – AYOMO is here to deliver your daily dose of vitamins and minerals. Created by Singaporeans Sherie Liang and Marcus Wong, the brand is stocked in more than 40 cafés in Melbourne.
Have these juices sent straight to your doorstep when you subscribe online. Plans are priced at $60 a week for eight bottles, $108 a week for 16 bottles and $196 a week for 32 bottles.
J3 Cold Pressed Juice
With over 14 different blends available, you’ll never get tired of the juices from J3. Instead of picking and sticking with a few ingredients per bottle, one juice can contain a variety of flavours from berries, apples, carrots and more. A one-day juice cleanse is priced at $75 for six bottles of 350ml juices and includes one nut milk.

If it’s just green juices you’re looking for then try Juiced Juice’s Power of Green Cleanse ($260). You’ll get two bottles of Greenlicious (kale, celery, apple, lemon), Green Wonder (celery, cucumber, chye sim and lemon) and Oh My Greens (carrot, kalian, apple, cucumber and lemon) to flood your system with multivitamins.

At The Shop by HIC, get your hands on more than 24 blends of cold-pressed juices, which you can customise in a carton of six from $115. With six different nut milks to fill you up as part of the available choices (recommended for novices), you don't have to subject yourself to forced starvation. Not completely, anyway.
There are three levels of detoxing, which range from a period of one to five days (from $135). Particularly committed people can sign up for the annual subscription plan.
Seed and Soil is another one of the local outfits that offer one day ($88) to a full week of liquid fasting ($588). Choose from either the New Beginnings programme that provides a mix of fruit and green juice, or Four Seasons for a deeper cleanse, with all green and root-based juices that are low in fructose. Fear not if you're just into a quick, feel-good fix: single bottles are available for $8 to $10, depending on size.
The online store offers delivery for a flat rate of $20. Or, pick up your order from its Tanjong Pagar Plaza outlet between 4 to 8pm, the evening before you start your fast.
This organic bar and café has a wide array of mixed cuisines all centred around health. Its juices are the main attraction; they focus on providing energy, pick-me-ups, 'beauty' and 'immunity' ($14). Although pricier than most other juice joints, you are sipping in a sleek yet warm space, which definitely adds to that wholesome feeling of drinking your (healthier) calories.
With the #eatclean movement on the rise, this vegan deli bar has its sights set on bringing the raw food movement proper to Singapore. So it's only natural that it offers a juice cleanse programme, ranging from one- to four-day cleanses ($97-$445).
Alternatively, you can opt to mix and match your bottles to supplement your diet. Most packages include a bottle of nut milk, alkaline water, coconut water and tea bags to enhance the process.

Local juicers Audrey Teh and Lee Suyi set up this juicing outfit with a decidedly local point of view. Working with their food scientist pal Julia Lee, the pair experimented with tropical fruits and vegetables plucked from around the region. The core range is a stable of 12 juices ($10/bottle) that carefully balance kai lan, chye sim, sweet potato leaves and bok choy with lotus root, watercress, turmeric, water chestnut and lemongrass.
If you're after a cleanse, packs of eight 400-mililitre bottles ($80/one day, $240/three days) are available, with flavours tailored to your experience with detoxing. While these can be bought online, loose bottles can only be purchased at one of A Juicery's stockists.

Copenhagen's Joe and The Juice outpost in the thick of the Raffles Place hubbub is the chain's first global export. Its distinct, yet rather familiar, brand of good-looking guys, tattoos, caffeine and juice means you'll definitely remember your first visit.
While you await your order, the 'stars' – known otherwise as baristas – mix up your order in a spectacle that they consider to be a performance. Juices go for $6.90 to $9.90, tailored to ease your hangover or to help with that detox diet. Coffees ($3.50-$7), bites ($10.50-$11.50) and green signature juices ($10.90) are also available.
Fresh Pressed has juices tailored to your beauty, energy, detox and health needs. Individual bottles go for a jaw-dropping $15, so it's one of the more expensive options out there.
Newbies to the juice world – especially those who aren't thrilled about those potent green ones – can opt for 'beginner' cleanses, which include nut milks. One-day cleanses go for $90 to $95, three-day from $270 to $285 and five-day $450 to $475. Alkaline waters and herbal teas come as part of the cleanse package.
