The Green Bar Comes to Ashland

The Ashland Beacon

   Ashland is marking its spot on the map. It seems we have new and unique businesses opening every month in the area. Most recently, Ashland gained a new smoothie and juice bar. The Green Bar, located at 1517 Winchester Avenue, offers a variety of choices with an emphasis on healthy living. At the Green Bar you will find their infamous $4.99 smoothie bar that offers some very unique flavors such as Berry Burst, Kentucky Sunshine, Pineapple Whip, She’s My Cherry Pie, The Classic, Tutti Frutti, Peaches N Cream, The Green and Peanut Buttercup. For just $2 more you can enjoy The Green Bar’s uniquely original “Elvis Smoothie” which features 27 grams of yellow pea protein, bananas, and peanut butter protein powder. You can also add yellow sweet pea protein to any of their other smoothies on the list. All smoothies at the Green Bar are made with water and oat milk. However, you can request cashew milk as a substitute for .50 cents more or request that water only is used for those seeking a non-dairy option.

   Smoothies aren’t the only thing that you will find at this sweet little shop in the heart of downtown Ashland. The Green Bar also offers six flavors of energy coolers that are not only healthy but really pack a punch. The Green Bar’s energy coolers are available in six flavors and include caffeine made from coffeeberry, ginseng, ashwagandha, guarana and green coffee as well as what they are calling an immunity boost. The immunity boost is made up of vitamin C, Vitamin D3, Vitamin B3, Zinc and the increasingly popular elderberry. You can pick between a small energy cooler which offers 110mg of caffeine or a size large if you really need a quick healthy boost of energy which offers 220mg of caffeine. 

   You can also build your own Acai or Dragon Fruit based bowl with a wide variety of toppings such as chia seeds, granola, honey, almonds, chocolate chips, peanut butter protein powder, white chocolate chips, coconut, oats, cinnamon, strawberries, and blueberries. The Green Bar is already a big hit with the locals and is gaining in popularity across the Tristate. So, if you haven’t gotten the chance to go visit this yummy little treasure trove, I highly recommend it and so do your friends and neighbors. Just look at some of the reviews left on the Green Bar’s social media pages….

   “Great place that I defiantly recommend. The shakes taste incredible and there are so many delicious options,” said Maverick Taylor Lewis

   “I was stuck at work on very few hours of sleep, so I had my husband bring me a Sunrise. It was sweet and sour and absolutely delicious. My eyes are wide open now and I’m not longer dragging and free of jitters that I get from coffee. Thanks for bringing Ashland healthy and natural alternatives,” claimed Jessica Whitt.

   Now is the time to make your way to Winchester Avenue and try The Green Bar for yourself.
