Swami Juice—one of the best places in Tampa to get fresh-pressed juice or an acai bowl. Lately, Swami has opened up its very own Avocado Bar offering up delicious treats all about avocado. You’ll want to check this out!
Swami Juice is located on MacDill Avenue in South Tampa right off of Bayshore, behind Byblos. Swami specializes in all things health-related with large fridges full of fresh-pressed juices, kombucha on tap, acai bowls, and more. All of their juices are hand-prepared in small batches with the help of a hydraulic press which uses thousands of pounds to extract all of the juice, leaving none of the freshness behind. According to their site, using this hydraulic allows for the “most nutrient-dense, delicious juice you’ve ever tried”. Wow—that’s a mighty claim, and we think it’s legitimate.
Swami Juice is so much more than just their juice. They boast a hyper-fresh menu where everything is made to order right in front of you. Enjoy Acai Bowls, Smoothies, Booster Shots, and now Avocado everything! Check out their acai bowls for a light lunch. We recommend the classic “Ah-Sigh-EE Bowl” which features blended acai, strawberry, blueberry, mango, and coconut water. It’s topped with granola, strawberries, bananas, coconut flakes, and raw honey. Yum! If you want a smoothie, check out the Swami Beach which features coconut water, organic vanilla yogurt, strawberry, mango, pineapple, and banana.
What’s New: The Avocado Bar
If you didn’t already know, Swami Juice was recently bought by Roger Stephan and Ziad Estephan, owners of Byblos who want to take all of the greatness of Swami and amplify it. They noticed in major cities such as NYC or LA, that trendy food spots make a killing and one thing Tampa was lacking was an avocado bar. Featured items that will be coming to Swami include Tuna Avocado Salads, Avocado toasts, protein bases, and more. According to the Times, they may even infiltrate some of the Mediterranean/Lebanese elements of Byblos—hummus toast anyone?
Next time you find yourself in the MacDill area, head over to the new and improved Swami Juice and enjoy some of their classic juices, bowls, and smoothies and now, check out their avo bar! You won’t be disappointed.
