Cocktail crawls. Burgers bedecked with foie gras. Two dinner reservations in one night. The hedonistic “demands” of being a devout foodie can be tough on our bodies. Blame it on getting older, or wiser, but more and more I’m on the lookout for smart choices to balance my last meal.

On a recent stop to check out Cafe Max, the sleek coffee shop on East Colfax that landed a spot on 5280’s most recent list of best new restaurants, I discovered the Healthy Hipster. This sweet, probiotic juice is made with spirilina, wheatgrass, mango, pineapple, orange, and other juices. I love that it’s dusted with chia seeds and garnished with a whole raw carrot. Leave it to Cafe Max to make a puke-green drink that keeps your insides working seem, well, hip.
