With juice blends with names like Be Bright, Spicy Beet, and Clean Mojito, Formula Fresh sets expectations high–which is where they should be. Each juice blend is crafted from the simplest, freshest ingredients, made while you wait. You can always make your own blend as well; a standard stock of ingredient options from cucumber to lime includes everything you need to land on the juice drink you’ve been craving.
Choose from options like Be Hot, Be Summer, or Be Fed, and expect these juices to be freshly-pressed and ready to grab when you walk in the door. Expect cold, fresh juice every time with refreshing flavors you’ll love to the very last sip.
The classic acai bowl has taken on eight different incarnations on the Formula Fresh menu. Whether you choose the Cacao Dream, which includes a fruity, chocolatey smoothie blend, natural peanut butter, and house-made chocolate honey, or a cool, refreshing Beach Bowl, which boasts mango, coconut water, and acai in the blend and fresh banana, strawberries, blueberries, coconut, and agave nectar on top, you’re in for an experience that’s bursting with color, flavor, and texture.
A huge variety of smoothies–from basic fruit smoothies to protein- and superfood-packed options–means you’ll have the fuel you need for the day, no matter where your adventures in Destin are going to take you. Be Limitless is a beautiful new take on bulletproof coffee, and Be Keto is a mouthwatering option featuring coconut milk, MCT oil, chocolate whey, and cacao nibs.
Formula Fresh is located in the Destin Commons near Bass Pro. It’s the perfect stop in the midst of a day of shopping or exploring downtown Destin, with plenty of parking, shopping, and dining options available nearby.
– The on-tap kombucha is fruity and full of character–definitely worth trying if you’re a kombucha fan.
– During busy times, the lines can be a bit long–and turnaround takes a bit on made to order items, so plan to visit during off-peak hours or prepare to spend a bit of time waiting.
