In Search of Supreme Smoothies
Smoothies may be one of the world’s perfect foods. Packed with nutrients, these health-conscious treats are ideal any time of day, whether it’s for breakfast or as an afternoon pick-me-up on the way home from the beach. It’s no wonder that Walton County has no shortage of spots for finding just the right flavor.
True to its name, For the Health of It in Santa Rosa Beach is a happy little destination for boosting your well-being. They have organic groceries, massage therapy, and yes, an amazing juice and smoothie bar. Everything is made to order, so you can shape your selection based on the ingredients that strike your fancy. You really can’t go wrong, but if you need a little nudge, consider the Earthquake Eddie Bee or the Pineapple Pizazz.
Launched in 2015, Clean Juice is the first and only USDA-certified Organic Juice and Food Bar Franchise. Swing by their location in Miramar Beach to tantalize yourself with a wide selection ranging from Creamsicle to Tropical.

In keeping with the organic theme, Prema Organic Cafe is homegrown and dedicated to delicious, natural goodness. It’s named for the Sanskrit word for “love”, and each of the smoothies has “love” in its name (Nutter Butter Love, Keto Mint Love, etc.). And with all the carefully sourced fresh ingredients, you’ll certainly taste the TLC that goes into each creation.
Over in Alys Beach, Raw & Juicy has all sorts of healthy goodies including the Green King smoothie. With a whitewashed Mediterranean vibe like most of its surrounding neighborhood, the shop offers a relaxing place to kick back and sip to your heart’s content. They even have a lovely little courtyard where you can enjoy some live music most afternoons.
And if you’re exploring north of the Choctawhatchee Bay, make it a point to visit Di’Lishi in Freeport. They’re open from the morning until late at night, ready to calm your cravings with customizable smoothies at any time. And if you feel the need to stray into some frozen yogurt, that’s okay. They have a self-serve bar filled with sweet toppings that may not be organic but sure are delectable.
Walton County is known for its natural beauty, and these smoothies are no exception. Blended to perfection, they also blend right into the relaxed, refreshing scene that keeps visitors coming back for more!
