JUICE PRESS NYC
HELLO & HAPPY MONDAY!!
Recently I had the pleasure of trying tons of products from the infamous juice shop in New York City called..
Here’s a first hand look at what they sent me, what their all about, their vision, their products, and my personal opinion!!
Juice press currently has 9 amazing retail stores in new york city and Brooklyn. 4 new locations are under construction including their southampton store! They offer a superb quality and delicious tasting source of the perfect nutrition (raw juices and foods) in a grab and go retail model. They make incredible tasting 100% raw unpasteurized and “made to order” smoothies. They use superfood ingredients such as Spirulina, raw cacao, raw maca, and hemp seeds. They have an easy to follow juice cleansing program, an extensive all homemade menu of raw foods and desserts!
REASONS WHY I LOVE THEM COMPARED TO OTHERS
They have catchy names for their products
They offer a wider variety of blends with and without fruit
They use ginger in most of their juices!! Love!!
They make the best beet juice blend ever (I hate beets)
They are 100% organic
I love their packaging with all the great info
They use innovative and cutting edge ingredients
Their stores are bigger than most juice shops (Thank goodness)
They offer a wide variety of fresh raws vegan eats
They use the very meticulous cold press method to provide optimal nutrients!!
“We are the best juice and smoothie bar on the planet. it’s true. we checked. if you found us, it means that your food and health consciousness has soared higher”
(not greenwhich street, careful. greenwich avenue) directions: take 7th avenue south bound to 13th street. 13th street to greenwich avenue. Their right there on the corner. or take greenwich avenue starting at 6th avenue, westbound towards 8th avenue. bam! our biggest and most beautiful construction to date. 50 feet of greenwich avenue store front, the most unbelievable monument to juice and raw food in the history of planet earth.
IT’S A REALLY PRETTY STORE!!
THE NORWALK JUICER
What’s great about the Juice Press juice is that its not only organic, but COLD PRESSED!! They use norwalk cold press machines .
Using the cold press juicing has several advantages. The norwalk juice presses shred down the solid produce to a pulp. the pulp is then pressed by the hydraulic press. this method is far more efficient than a rotary blade machine.
Did you know the Norman walker invented this machine some 75 years ago?!
The press has two separate juice extraction machines built into it:
(1) the pulverizer; and (2) the 3 ton hydraulic press.
the result of these two parts together = the maximum juice extraction from the least amount of produce.
The pulverizer is also proven to be the most effective way to liberate the nutritional enzymes from the fibers of the produce.
Because the press does not force air into the juice during pressing, the juice is not decaying as fast as with other methods of juice extraction. it is considered perfectly acceptable to bottle this type of juice for 2 to 4 days.
I never really realized the amount of effort that goes into using a juicer like this one and really appreciate those who use the juice press rather than the standard juicer!!

CURIOUS ABOUT EVERYTHING I GOT AND WHAT THEY’RE ALL ABOUT?!

WHAT’S IN IT?!
Green apple, kale, spinach.
I had a hard time choosing which juice to try first as there were so many options and they all screamed..
PICK ME PICK ME!!
This little juice really blew me away
Yes, it had the typical green ingredients such as kale, spinach, and green apple
but even in its simplicity the flavor was quite good!
I always try to get fancy and throw everything into one to harness all the nutrtients, but the flavor of this particular juice was simple, yet amazing!!
The saying reigns true.. LESS IS MORE
KALE, DAIKON, CARROTS, TOMATOES, BLACK SESAME SEEDS
I’vet had a few varied kale salads before, but never had I tried a VEGAN KALE CAESAR SALAD!!
The sesame seeds were a nice touch and really blended with the salad reminding me of tuna steak salad sans the tuna of course..
This salad was simple with minimal ingredients, but thats all it needed! its was perfect!
(I would love to know what’s in the vegan ceasar dressing)
WHAT’S IN IT?!
cucumber, celery, lemon, aloe, kale, blue mana, pinch of sea salt.
This was the second juice I picked to try and it was also quite good! I usually gravitate towards the green juices that have a bit of sweetness versus a bit of salt, but the salt flavor really brought out the taste of the veggies!! Veggies actually have salt naturally in them to begin with and the extra sea salt give it that extra boost! I didn’t really taste any of the Aloe Vera as its camoflauged from all the veggies, but I love the addition of Aloe Vera!!
If you’re a big fan of the V8 version of veggies this would be your best pick!
DOCTOR GREEN JUICE
Red apple, pineapple, kale, lemon, ginger
I tried this juice on the day of the yoga in Time Square event and it was perfect!! Compared to the Simple Green juice that is all veggies sans fruit, this one was perfectly sweet!! I loved this juice as they used red apples instead of the typical green apple, and the addition of pineapple gave it a sweet taste, and I love ginger in my juice!!
The Doctor Green juice and Love at First Sight would probably be my go to green juice!!
Carrot, pineapple, pear, orange, ginger, beet, lemon
I’m always hesitant to try anything with beet juice in it as it can be an obstacle to get the perfect blend without overpowering the juice and giving off a dirt like taste. Juice Press will prove all the pessimistic beet haters wrong, because this juice was Uh-Mazing!! This juice is the best beet juice blend I’ve tried thus far in my juice ventures hands down!! The blend of fruit in this juice really compliment each other and the pear and lemon are probably what make this juice stand out the most! In this little bottle of magic I taste mostly ginger (love) and lemon (love love)
I highly recommend the LUCKY SEVEN
celery,cucumber,parsley,kale,dandelion, swiss chard,lemon,and ginger.
Well, I never thought I would find a juice that I wasn’t fond of, but I actually had a hard time enjoying the Mother Earth blend lol. This juice was more of the vegetable forward options that had very divers ingredients and I LOVED the idea of dandelion and swiss chard as it strays from the everyday blends, but..
This one was just very strong, and almost bitter like..
I put a few drops of liquid stevia in to add a hint of sweetness, but then the taste became even more off-putting.. lol
I have never had the watermelon juice. I’ve seen at juice shops, but I always opt for the green juice and skip the fancy fruity ones.. but this was quite good and not what I had expected.
We’ve all had watermelon on a hot summer day, but drinking the juice was quite different. Since processed goods are saturated with added sugars our perceptions of what real fruit tastes like are off. I don’t consume watermelon flavored processed foods or anything like that, but I of course thought it would be sweeter, just like you imagine that coconut water would be lol
The flavor was a smooth, light, sweet, and of course melon like..
Why drink watermelon?!
Watermelons are rich in vitamin A, B1, B6, C, beta-carotene, lycopene, potassium, zinc, magnesium, and chlorophyll and its 90% water!!
I loved this product and would definitely purchase again, maybe throw in some lime or mint too!!
Glow is made from organic unpasteurized grapefruit, lemon, & orange!
I’ve never been a HUGE fan of grapefruit. Though I have lots of memories of my mother eating them for breakfast as a child, I never really gravitated towards the bitter fruit. So as you would imagine I wasn’t super crazy about this juice, but I really was super impressed. The blend of grapefruit and orange really mellowed the sour/bitter taste of the grapefruit and it was almost like a more tart like orange juice!!
I thought this product was really neat and would be a great replacement for the typical OJ for breakfast!
Raw almond and tahini cookies, coated inseam seeds and topped wit raw chocolate sauce
Now I don’t know about you, but I LOVE raw vegan sweets!! I was super excited to try these little bites of amazingness, but I like to save the best for last.. so as difficult as it was.. I did..
The first bite I tried was of one with the darker sesame seeds and it tasted like a 10!! The flavor was reminiscent of the sesame candies I’ve tried before that come in the flat pieces, but of course..
far more rich and far more amazing than those!!
What I did notice is that like most raw/organic/vegan eats they are very temperature and time sensitive – I tried to take these lil babes on the go with me somewhere and they started to not look as fresh and I had to immediately find a fridge lol
There is something so luxurious about having a treat that’s raw, organic, and vegan, that it just makes life worth living..
