Drink Your Juice

September 30, 2019

When living in Sydney we always made a habit of treating ourselves to a “green” juice at least once a week as we had read a few articles about the health benefits and also knew it was a great way to add a little more veg into our diet.

Move forward a year and we’ve found fresh juice bars on the Gold Coast are not on every street corner as they are in Sydney and also when we do purchase them we’re paying in excess of $8 for one!!! When you really want to be having a fresh juice at least three times a week, this can send your weekly food budget into a downward spiral.

Problem solved!! Leading up to my 50th birthday (more of a joint present than just for myself) I requested a cold pressed juicer so we could have fabulous fresh juices whenever we wanted them at a much lower cost.
Juicer purchased, jam jars purchased and a trip to our local green grocer, leaving with enough fresh produce to set us up for our juicing journey!

One word….AMAZING! The flavours are amazing, colours are vibrant and the best part, jam packed full of vitamins and nutrients.

Fruits and Vegetables

On our first juicing attempt we made three different juices ending with a total of 12 juices (4 in each flavour) therefore supplying us each with a juice everyday for the next six days.

We love them so much that we want to share them with you !
If you can’t make them yourself we will have a limited supply in the studio each week for only $5
