I mentioned them earlier this year in my Oahu Dairy-Free Ice Cream round up, but Pressed Juicery is actually a chain with locations on the mainland too! This rapidly expanding healthy empire is known for juice cleanses, creamy dairy-free treats, and now an indulgent toppings bar.
Pressed Juicery Shops Swirl All-Natural Plant-Based Ice Cream
About five years ago, Pressed Juicery shops began swirling plant-based soft serve called Freeze. It’s made purely with fruits, nuts, and vegetables, and without any chemicals or additives. That healthy frozen dessert line has become so popular, that they’ve officially launched a full range of toppings, from crunches to sauces. And you can add up to three toppings to any Freeze size for just $1 extra.
Freeze itself is dairy-free and vegan, but not all of the toppings are. So we’ve put together some information to help you navigate Pressed Juicery’s options.
Your Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free & Vegan Guide to Pressed Juicery
I’ve listed this quick guide in an FAQ format to help you easily navigate the Pressed Juicery menu.
What’s In Pressed Juicery Freeze?
Here are the full ingredient lists for each flavor. Yes, this is really it!

- Strawberry Freeze – water, maple syrup, strawberries, dates, almonds (pressed nuts), beet juice, vanilla extract

Which Freeze Toppings are Dairy-free and Vegan?
All of the following are dairy-free, gluten-free, and vegan.
- Almond Butter
- Blueberries (Fresh)
- Dark Chocolate Crispy Quinoa Gems
- Granola (not listed as vegan, but reported as Purely Elizabeth, which is vegan)
- Granola Butter
- Gummy Bears (Peach)
- Honey (not strictly vegan)
- Raspberry Puree
- Sea Salt

When I asked in store, I was told that the Praline Pecan Pieces contain dairy. The Chocolate Drizzle is not vegan, but we still have to confirm if it is dairy-free or not. We are also still checking on the chocolate chip cookie crumble, chocolate chips, and cones.
Are All Pressed Juicery Drinks Dairy-Free?
To the best of our knowledge they are, but always check with the company and read the label in store to confirm. They offer all types of Pressed Juices and cleanse packages including citrus, greens, roots, and more. They also have Wellness Shots, and a line of natural Almond Milks.
Does Pressed Juicery Sell Any Dairy-Free Snacks?
Yes, they do, and the following appear to be dairy-free.
- Pressed Juice Gummy Bears (but they are not vegan; they contain beeswax)
- Zuma Valley Coconut Balls
Their Truth Bars contain whey protein and their Simply Fuel Protein Bars contain milk powder, and thus are not dairy free. Check the labels in store for more localized options.
Does Pressed Juicery Sell their Ice Cream in Stores?
They’re planning to! Right now, you can get to-go pints of their new Frozen Vanilla, Chocolate, Matcha, and Strawberry frozen dessert at their Southern California locations. The ingredients of the packed pints are different from their in-store Freeze soft serve. For example, the Vanilla pint is made with coconut milk, almond milk, maple syrup, tapioca, vanilla extract, xanthan gum, and salt
Where to Find 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, and New York. 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!
