When most people think about Press Food & Juice, they tend to think about pressed juices, which is no surprise. What people may not know is that Press is also serving up some unbelievably, cold, fresh, delicious and wholesome smoothies. A trip to Press is like walking into an ice cream shop, with all of the flavors. But instead of feeling guilty about eating ice cream, customers can feel about drinking these delightful, expertly blended treats. One look at the vast selection of smoothies, and you will wonder why Press is not on the top of your list of places to cool off this summer.
I stopped in over the weekend for a pressed juice, but ended up opting for a smoothie. Organic juice shop/food owner, Esther Pica, said that she was going to pick out one of her favorites for me, which was great because I was having a hard time deciding what to get. Her smoothie of choice turned out be the Mild Green (pineapple juice, pear, spinach & ginger – $8). In all honesty, it might have been the best smoothie I had ever tried. It was not too sweet, the consistency was perfect, and the ginger gave it a nice little snap.
If you think that the Mild Green sounds good, then you’re going to be in for a nice surprise when I mention a couple of other varieties, such as the PB&J (cashew milk, peanut butter, peanut butter powder, concord grape and banana – $8). Another concoction that caught my attention was the mango chili (orange juice, mango, hemp hearts, goji berry, lime & chili powder – $8). Altogether there are 25 selections to choose from!
If a pressed juice or an all natural smoothie is not enough to entice you to visit Press, then how about an organic popsicle? There are seven homemade flavors, including mocha-cashew with banana, and cantaloupe-lime. Talk about some enticing summertime delights!
