Juices and smoothies the express way
Fresh and healthy
This newly opened Charlie's Raw Squeeze Express at Ashgrove is a petite version of the favourite group of 100% vegan, smoothie and juice bars across Brisbane.
Just like the larger shops of the same name, Charlie's Raw Squeeze express has a vast range of fresh and healthy drinks, snacks, raw treats, organic coffee, chia cups and more – only the shop is a touch smaller than its bigger brothers and sisters The colourful, graffiti wall gives an edgy backdrop to the hefty, oversized Wooden squatter style chairs where you can stop and enjoy your charlie's creation.
The menu items are natural and fresh and with such fun names including tropical sunrise smoothie, lean green cleansing machine and liquid gold juice it's hard no to smile. The guilt free treats like strawberry bliss nice-cream, gluten free peanut butter cupcakes and vegan donuts are an easy favourite for worry free indulging. For a more substantial but still healthy taco bowls, snack falafels, acai bowls will do the trick.
Charlie's marathon, around the clock 24/7 opening hours are so convenient it hardly seems real. Charlie's is Diagonal to Ashgrove State School which makes for healthy a healthy solution to after school hungries.
An outdoor (10 mins per visit) and an undercover car park is right outside making for an easy visit.
