Healthy juices and smoothies are my go-to when I want to jump start my mornings. I love making my own smoothies for breakfast, but sometimes time just isn't on my side so getting something to go works best. Whenever I need a good cleanse or want to follow a vegetarian meal plan for the week juicing is a great option.
I always love it when I discover a new spot that I can enjoy that offers healthy options on the go. It can be very frustrating sometimes trying to find local restaurants or businesses that caters to clean eating. I couldn't believe it when I discovered Cold Pressed in Virginia Beach! I had been interested in finding a cold pressed juicery for quite some time, so learning that this place was in my work neighborhood had me running to try this place on my next lunch break!
Needless to say I was really excited when the company invited me to come out and try a few of their juices! Towne Center Cold Pressed is a cool rustic spot that sits inside of the Daily Grind Unwind cafe. The menu serves up cold pressed juices, pre/post work out shakes, smuice (a smoothie & juice combined), and get this...smoothie bowls! You guys know I love those, check that post out HERE. You can also make your own by choosing your produce of choice and can add supplements like flax seed, maca, or chia seeds. They have so many options guys. Sweetener options include agave, raw cane, or honey. It doesn't get any better than that!
I chose two drinks: 'Sex in the City' from the cold press juice line and 'The Perfect Kiss' which is a smuice. 'Sex in the City', the cold pressed juice, was so delicious! The ingredients are pineapple, watermelon, lemon, apple, and maca. Watermelon is good for the skin, heart, and hydration. This intrigued me the most! It tasted like an apple punch with hints of watermelon. This drink is incredibly smooth and perfect for a refreshing morning or afternoon drink. Next was the Smuice, which is a smoothie and juice combined. 'The Perfect Kiss' ingredients are blueberry, strawberry, orange, and mango! So much flavor! Orange is excellent for heart health, immunity, and anti-aging. The orange taste was the more dominate flavor of all of the ingredients. Again, Cold Pressed gets it right with the smoothness of their drinks. What I especially loved about this smoothie is that there aren't any seeds or lumpy textures in this drink. Thumbs UP!
Do you enjoy smoothies or cold pressed juices? I'm interested in knowing what some of your favorites are! My wedding is only a few months away--I'm trying to keep my diet clean, I keep telling you guys, lol.
If you are in the Virginia Beach area you HAVE to visit this place. I love that Cold Pressed stands for health and wellness. The ingredients are 100% raw and releases vital elements while processing the drinks without heating or oxidizing. With proper refrigeration each juice will maintain its full nutritional and medicinal benefits for up to 5 days. Visit Town Center Cold Pressed online to look over their menu options and everything they have to offer! One of my new favorite spots now.
