Updated in 2021! Pressed, the chain formerly known as Pressed Juicery, now has a sleeker name and an even bigger dairy-free menu. They’ve added more sweet fruity juices, a whole line of bottled smoothies, three dragon fruit smoothie bowls, and two flavors of Freeze soft serve: acai and dragon fruit. Freeze still comes in chocolate and vanilla flavors that are made with their pure almond milk, but the new fruit-forward flavors have an oat milk base.
Pressed Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free & Vegan Menu Guide
When I first visited a Pressed Juicery on Oahu, they were mostly dairy-free. All of their juices and milks were made without milk, and their Freeze soft serve was purely plant-based. But they had a few toppings with dairy. Since then, they’ve gone dairy-free with their entire menu (except for some of the packaged items). In fact, all of the following items are reportedly dairy-free and gluten-free. They’re also soy-free and vegan, unless otherwise noted. But nut-free consumers should take note that almonds are used in many of their bowls, toppings, and frozen desserts.

What You See: All of these items at Pressed Juicery are made with pure, simple, pressed fruits and vegetables. The list of ingredients is listed boldly on the front label.

Where to Find Pressed (formerly Pressed Juicery)
I’m pretty sure this juice shop started in Southern California, because that’s where they have the highest concentration of shops. But they also have a smattering of locations elsewhere, including Northern California, Washington, Nevada, Texas, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, and Texas. See their website below for addresses, hours, and to order online. They ship throughout the U.S. (yes, even the freezes!).

What Others Are Saying ...
I LOVE treating myself to this “freeze” when I’m craving something sweet, since it’s made from real food and natural sweeteners. I reason that if I could justify a smoothie, I can get a swirl with some toppings, because this is really the same but colder. I’m just bummed that they discontinued the matcha flavor… But you can’t go wrong with the classics. Ask nicely and they’ll combine more than one flavor for you in a cup, and don’t forget to ask for samples along the way.
Response from Go Dairy Free
You’re right – I forgot about the Matcha! I saw that one in store, but it is gone on their website. Bummer. Thanks for leaving a review for this restaurant Hannah!
