For those of you who don’t live anywhere near Palo Alto, California, you might want to turn away and not read any further. Continuing on may very well result in a little sad face.
Okay, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Over the weekend, I stopped by Pressed Juicery in the Stanford Shopping Center to try out their new frozen treat called “Freeze”. Basically, it’s their cold-pressed juice frozen to a consistency like soft serve. But it’s not ice cream. It’s like eating a soft serve popsicle only it’s not icy or slushy. It’s smooth and creamy and airy like soft serve but the taste is similar to a juice popsicle.
It’s amazingly good! And it’s 100% juice, nuts and vegetables. Nothing else. That’s actually Pressed Juicery’s motto. There’s no dairy, no added sugar, no gluten and it’s vegan.
I got half Greens and half Chocolate as I couldn’t decide which flavor to go with. There’s six to choose from:
- Greens – kale, spinach, romaine, cucumber, apple, lemon, dates, coconut meat
- Roots – carrots, beets, fuji apple, lemon, ginger, dates, coconut meat
- Citrus – orange, apple, pineapple, coconut meat and dates
- Fruit – fuji apple, strawberry, coconut meat, dates
- Chocolate – almond, dates, sea salt, cacao
- Vanilla – almond, dates, sea salt, vanilla
I got the small size (4 oz) for $4.95. I didn’t get any but there’s also a range of toppings available and they’re the healthy kind too. Add a dollar for up to 3 toppings, everything from fresh berries, to chia and hemp seeds to granola and almond butter as a syrup.
They also had their bottled juices for sale which I barely glanced at. And while they’re known for their juice cleanse, I probably won’t ever do that, but I would happily stop by anytime I’m in the vicinity for a healthy, nutritious frozen treat.
