Orange Juice with Strawberries and Blackberries

Orange Juice with Strawberries and Blackberries

I have been on a big juice kick lately. Having freshly made juice at home is such a luxury. It tastes so much better than anything store bought, and I love being able to to customize the blend. I loved the idea of orange juice with strawberries. It’s a great way to get the vitamins from oranges with a fun twist. Adding some blackberries really turns things up a notch. This is a delicious fruit juice and a perfect break from traditional orange juice.

While any juicer will work for this recipe, I personally use and love the Breville BJS600XL Fountain Crush Masticating Slow Juicer. Justin surprised me with this juicer as a present and it is amazing! I am surprised at how much juice is gets out of fruits and vegetables. Especially leafy greens and softer fruits, like berries. If you don’t have a juicer, feel free to use a blender, add some ice, and make this into a smoothie!

Pressed Juicery Launches a New Menu

[maxbutton id=”1″]Pressed Juicery Launches a New Menu

In October, California based Pressed Juicery announced the that they were going to launch a new menu. Pressed Juicery is known for their amazing raw, cold-pressed juices that come in a variety of flavors. The new menu contains new classic juices, new flavors of coconut water, and cold-pressed coffee. For Pressed Juicery lovers like me, hearing that they were launching a new menu was exciting news!

I have always loved their juices, thought FREEZE was amazing, and am excited to be able to make their juices in my own home. I absolutely couldn’t wait to try out the new menu items. Pressed Juicery was kind enough to send me some of them to try out! I also picked up some of the other new flavors from my local Pressed Juicery shop because they sounded so amazing.

The flavors that have been added to the new menu at Pressed Juicery are:

  • Watermelon (100% watermelon juice)
  • Orange (100% orange juice)
  • Apple (100% apple juice)
  • Rose Coconut Water (coconut water and rose water)
  • Green Coconut Water (coconut water, parsley, romaine, and spinach)
  • Cold-Brewed Coffee (coffee and vanilla bean)
  • Brazil Nut (brazil nut, dates, kale, romaine, sea salt, spinach, and vanilla bean)

The three classic juice flavors are all delicious. The Watermelon juice was so refreshing. It is the perfect pick for when you want something sweet or when you are missing the warm summer months. The Orange juice was some of the best that I have ever had. I would say that it rivals fresh squeezed orange juice. The Apple juice was actually really tasty too. Coming from me, this is very high praise of their apple juice. Typically “dislike” is not a strong enough term to describe how I feel about apple juice. It tasted like fresh picked apples and reminded me of fall afternoons spent apple picking with my family. They used perfectly ripe fruit to make these juices and you can really tell in the flavor. By cold-pressing the juices and not heating them, not only are the vitamins preserved but the flavor is as well. They all taste just like the best watermelons, oranges, and apples out there.

The coconut waters were a fun twist on traditional coconut water! Pressed Juicery had already been selling a traditional coconut water that was hydrating and refreshing. The Rose Coconut Water had a sweeter and slightly floral taste. I enjoyed it because it was something different. The Green Coconut Water was definitely my favorite. I love green juice, and this mix of coconut water and greens was perfectly balanced. The coconut water added the hint of sweetness that was needed to balance the greens. I loved it! I was also send an Alkaline Water, which I found to be very hydrating as well.

At my next visit to a Pressed Juicery location, I couldn’t resist picking up the other two new flavors as well. The Brazil Nut juice was also wonderful. Most green juices with nuts that I have tried contained almonds. The Brazil Nuts gave it a unique flavor that I was surprised to really enjoy. The cold-brewed coffee was so good! The vanilla beans made it slightly sweet and, since it was cold-brewed, it was not at all bitter or acidic. I also ordered the Vanilla Coffee (coffee, almonds, dates, and vanilla bean) and thought it was delicious as well. For those who like sweet and creamy iced coffee, this would hit the spot perfectly.

The Pressed Juicery new menu is available at all Pressed Juicery locations as well as online. If you have a location near you, definitely stop in. You can often try a sample of any of the juice flavors before you purchase. If you order online, the juices are shipped directly to you in cold-pack packaging. They arrive to your door and taste just as fresh as if you had purchased from a Pressed Juicery location.

Have you tried the new menu items from Pressed Juicery? What did you think of them?

Watermelon & Lemon Smoothie Recipe

Watermelon & Lemon Smoothie Recipe

As the weather is getting warmer, I have had crazy cravings for watermelon. One of my friends told me about a de-bloating juice she had with her family that was from Dr. Oz. I gave the original recipe a try and, as always, modified it a bit to fit my own tastes. It’s so refreshing!

What you will need to make a Watermelon & Lemon Smoothie:

  • The juice of 2 lemons, about 2 tablespoons
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 cups watermelon, chopped
  • 1 cup cucumber, peeled and sliced
  • One 1-inch piece of ginger

How to make a Watermelon & Lemon Smoothie:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. I use my Vitamix for this and it blends perfectly on the low speed setting. If you are using a regular blender, you may need to add an additional 1/4 cup of water.
  2. Enjoy!
