cold-pressed juice

But not any juice, it must be ccold-pressed juice, raw and preferably organic.  Cold what? Cold-pressed juice refers to the way juice is extracted from fruits and veg Click To Tweet Traditional methods use fast-spinning blades to tear apart produce, which by adding heat - exposes ingredients to air and cuts down the nutrients.

Cold-pressed juice is made by machines that extract juice by pressing and grinding fruits and vegetables with no heat and very little exposure to air. The resulting juice is more nutrient packed than its traditional counterpart.  

If it feels like you’re seeing cold-pressed juice everywhere, you’re not alone, they are (almost) everywhere. Taking the place of smoothies as the health foodies drink of choice, they’ve been touted as helping you detox, cleanse and shed weight. Not to mention that one bottle of juice contains more produce than a fresh salad would, helping you get more fruits and vegetables in in a very easy way.

Whether you’re looking to do a juice cleanse, or just incorporate juices into your diet, there are an increasing number of businesses that will deliver fresh cold-pressed juice to your doorstep.

1. Bliss Juicery

 

cold-pressed juice

Based in Craighall, Johannesburg, Bliss Juicery offers a range of freshly made cold-pressed juices, almond milks, detox shots and homemade vegan and paleo friendly snacks.

If you’re into juice fasts they offer three different cleanses (one day, three days or five days) suited to both juicing beginners and advanced juicers.

What we Love about Bliss Juicery

Unlike others, Bliss Juicery does not blast freeze their juices, as they want to deliver the freshest and healthiest juices possible and believe that by not freezing their juices, you are getting the highest nutrient content possible.

Juices are delivered to your door the day after they’re pressed and for those doing a 5 day cleanse you’ll get two deliveries. It’s like having a personal juicing chef who’s cold-pressing juice as you need it.

Their juices contain both fruit, vegetables, herbs, spices and some superfood which naturally contain healing ingredients like ginger, mint, turmeric and Camu.

What You Should Get

Almond Milk 

cold-pressed Almond MilkFreshly made almond milk is hard to come by and Bliss juicery offers a variety of flavours (cocoa, chai, vanilla). We love the vanilla almond milk over home-made granola and fruit for breakfast

Tropical 2 

cold-pressed juice Bliss JuceiryThis is one for those with a bit of a sweet tooth as the pineapple adds loads of natural sweetness to the cucumber, coconut and lime for a tropical tasting juice.

Earth 1

cold-pressed juice Bliss JuceiryBright orange, this carrot, apple, parsley, lime and ginger juice is like a boost of energy in a bottle.

Greens 3 

cold-pressed juice Bliss JuceiryMost green juices tend to be bitter and taste just a tad too green for our liking, Bliss Juice’s Greens 3 juice which contains Kale, Spinach, Cos Lettuce, Parsley, Cucumber, Celery, Apple and Lemon is incredibly light, refreshing and just the right amount of sweet.

Melon 1

cold-pressed juice Bliss JuceiryThis is a seasonal flavour so it won’t always be available, so we suggest getting it while it’s still summer! The combination of watermelon, mint, ginger and camu is bliss on a hot summer’s day.

Bliss Shots 

cold-pressed juice Bliss ShotsBliss’s 50ml shots are intense and intended to give you an immune and energy boost – which they do! The Awaken which contains lemon, honey and ginger would be perfect for when you feel a cold or flu coming on and the Antioxidant one with pomegranate and Ginger is great for your skin. They also have a detox shot containing activated charcoal, coconut water and ginger – if you’re looking to try the benefits of charcoal (definitely only for the brave). You won’t taste the charcoal (ginger is the strong flavour) but it leaves your mouth feeling chalky.

Before you get them…

As Bliss Juices does not blast freeze their juice, they’ll last only 3 days in the fridge once they arrive at your door. Once you open them, make sure to drink it within a day, preferably within an hour or two to maximise nutrient intake.

If you’re going for a Bliss Shot, take them in two big glugs as their flavours are incredibly intense (you may want some water or juice on the side).

They’re currently only available in Johannesburg

What We Love About Juice Revolution

Founder, Fiona Stander has enrolled for an internationally recognised Natural Juice Therapy Certificate, so the information and juices you receive are well thought out and nutritionally sound.

Juice Revolution Blast Freeze the juices which means that they last longer (up to three months in the freezer).  This is incredibly convenient for those who want to keep some juices on hand for when the mood strikes.

There are debates around freezing vs serving fresh, but blast freezing juices (they freeze within two hours) immediately after producing them, locks in the freshness and prevents contamination. 

Juice Revolution uses organic produce in their juices, smoothies and soups.

What You Should Get

As Runners we naturally gravitate towards the Athlete Range of juices and smoothies which contain added protein making them perfect fuel to enjoy after a workout or as a recovery snack/meal. Each bottle also tells you when it’s best to consume the beverage.

Level Up Smoothie 

Cold-pressed Smoothie Juice RevolutionIngredients include Yoghurt, banana, blueberries, sesame seeds, almonds, brazil nuts, dates, vanilla extract. This smoothie is creamy with a slight crunch from the nuts and incredibly satisfying thanks to the protein from the yogurt, nuts and seeds. Take it out the freezer before a workout and have it after as a recovery meal or snack.

Muscle Memory Smoothie

Cold-pressed Smoothie Juice RevolutionA powerhouse smoothie, this contains Apple, avocado, spinach, pineapple, hemp protein powder, spirulina powder. It’s creamy, easy to drink, with no one flavour overpowering the others. It’s also a very satisfying smoothie which would work well after a workout or instead of a meal.

Lift it Fruit Juice Smoothie 

Cold-pressed Smoothie Juice RevolutionThinner than a smoothie, but thicker than a juice this drink contains Apple, pineapple, banana, tahini paste, yoghurt, honey. It’s sweet and if you’re a halva lover, you’ll adore this creamy drink.

Ignite Juice 

Cold-pressed Smoothie Juice RevolutionThe strongest flavour that comes through is the lemon, but there’s apple, celery and cucumber in it as well. It’s really good, like gulp the whole bottle down good. 

Toughen Up Smoothie

Cold-pressed Smoothie Juice RevolutionThis contains Apple, avocado, pineapple, banana and spirulina powder. There’s a strong banana smell and flavour, but the apple and pineapple tone it down to create an almost tropical-like smoothie.

The Orchard
