Opening alert: Project Juice in downtown Palo AltoUploaded: Apr 4, 2014
Downtown Palo Alto's first solo juice shop opened its doors Friday, April 4, at 575 High St.
Project Juice, a collaboration between a San Francisco couple and one Atherton resident, offers vegetable, fruit and other healthy combos in cold-pressed juice form, all between $9.25 and $10.25. You'll also find smoothie-like drinks (the "Mint Chip Shake" has banana, raw almonds, spinach, mint, cacao nibs, dates, vanilla bean and sea salt) and almond-based concoctions ("Almond Mylk" has raw almonds, dates, vanilla bean and sea salt; "Get Up and Go-Go" is the same but with cold-brewed coffee).
Those looking for a more serious health kick can opt for a cleanse: one-day ($65), three-day ($190) or five-day ($300).
Project Juice also sells some packaged health snacks like granola, "coco-roons," nuts and superfood bars; down the line, there might be some more grab-and-go type options fashioned by Kailey Jean, a local vegan chef.

The shop is open Monday-Friday, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.; weekends, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
