Rhody Gem: Yum Juice Bar

March 2022


What it is:

This is the spot to go for a healthy pick-me-up, whether you’re craving fruit and veggie smoothies, fresh-pressed juices, or superfruit bowls.

Where to find it:

Along Chalkstone Avenue in Mount Pleasant, you can grab a snack to-go or sit down and sip inside the cafe.

What makes it a Rhody Gem?

“It’s paradise in a cup,” says owner Jimmy Ansong of Yum Juice Bar’s standout smoothie  Ghana Bounce, made with pineapple, ginger, mango, and coconut water. “In the middle of the winter, it makes you feel like you’re on a vacation.” Ansong set out to open the juice destination as a healthy retreat from the fast-paced world, where you won’t find powders or added sugars, just real fruit and vegetables blended with nut-based milks or coconut water. From their popular peanut butter bowls and açaí bowl (topped with coconut and a chocolate drizzle) to pure juice offerings – like Green God featuring spinach, cucumber, orange, green apple, and kiwi – Yum has snacks and bevvies with flavors that are both familiar and unique. “We developed recipes that satisfy our customers’ needs in a healthier way,” says Ansong. “We have something for everyone.”
