a beauty journal & the occasional cocktail - shaken not stirred

Drink of the Morning | Bolthouse Farms Daily Greens

I'm a big fan of Kimberly Snyders Glowing Green Smoothie - the one with lots of dark leafy green veggies - and when I'm on the go (or traveling) and don't have time to make it, I always look for a substitute.   That's how I found this guy - Bolthouse Farms Daily Greens.  

What I don't mind:

  • it is not a smoothie, its definitely a juice so you won't be getting any of the fruit & veggie pulp in there
  • the taste was definitely more on the green side of things, not fruity at all which I was perfectly fine with

What I love: 

  • its available at Safeway which is on my way to work
  • the cost was around $2.5 to 3 dollars per bottle
  • it was light and refreshing

What I don't love:

  • it is flash pasteurized - heat is applied to kill spoilage microorganisms and extend shelf-life - destroying nutrients during the process as well.
  • the first ingredient is "pear juice from concentrate" which was a bit deceiving as a pear was not on the front picture and I surprisingly couldn't even taste it

What I wish it had:

  • more greens and lemon juice!!!!!!!!
