I am on a bit of a juice crusade at the moment and aiming to introduce more fruit and vegetables into my diet - which is quite ironic for a vegetarian!!
Happily, this week I was given a bit of a helping hand by Cawston Press, who have recently produced some delicious vegetable and fruit blends which feature only the pressed fruit and vegetables. They are made from all natural ingredients and contain no added sugar, sweeteners, preservatives or colourings.
Cawston Press have produced three new vegetable and fruit blends which I was sent to sample:
"Sweet Greens" featuring apple, lettuce, pear, cucumber lemon, water and garden mint extract.
"Sunshine Blend" featuring apple, carrot, orange, celery root juice, lemon and water.
"Radiant Roots" featuring apple, carrot, beetroot, lemon, water and ginger extract.
Inspired by the juice bar culture and kitchen garden ingredients, each juice has a very distinct flavour and has been expertly blended by Micah Carr - Hill, a food scientist who has worked on Covent Garden Soups and Green and Blacks.
I tried all of three fruit and vegetable juice blends and was really impressed by their flavour and how smoothly and easily they went down. I have to say that the "Sweet Greens" flavour did't resonate with my taste buds and wasn't my cup of tea. However, I really enjoyed the Sunshine Blend which had a very sunny orange and carrot flavour filled taste and the Radiant Roots where the lovely warming flavours of the ginger coupled really well with the beetroot and the carrot.
These juices make a great combination and are fantastic if you are into juicing but don't have the time or the inclination to make your own, or you just fancy picking up a healthy nutritious drink from the supermarket which doesn't compromise on flavour. I would definitely recommend trying them especially going into spring and summer as they would make a great thirst-quenching drink.
Cawstons Juice retails at £2.99 RRP and is available in the chilled drinks cabinets at Tesco and in independent stores.
