PHOENIX  -- It's one of the hottest trends in California, and now it's moving east. We're talking about healthy juices.

But they're not just a tasty treat; there are some great health benefits to juice as well.

Many juices are filled with sugar and preservatives. So Alexis and Steve Schulze, a Costa Mesa couple with a passion for healthy living, came up with "Nekter."

The pair created a simple blueprint for a vibrant, neighborhood juice bar that offers plenty of natural ingredients at affordable prices.

And now, Arizonans can experience Nekter as well. A new Nekter has just opened up at Hilton Village, at 6137 North Scottsdale Road in Scottsdale.

Alexis Schulze gave us a taste of Nekter on Wednesday's Good Morning Arizona, as she whipped up a date-nut smoothie. "This one has protein. It has anti-oxidants, soluble fiber," she says. "It's a great energy-producing drink."

Here are some of Nekter's featured drinks:

Carrot, orange, lemon and ginger. You will feel an instant buzz of energy and brightness around you. Add a natural pep in your step!

Beet, broccoli, kale, parsley, celery, grapes and apple. This drink is loaded with the best sources of antioxidants.

Carrot, parsley, kale, spinach, celery, lemon and ginger. Your skin will have a flushed and refreshed look after drinking. Way to glow.
