Grocery Store Green Juice Review

Grocery Store Green Juice Review-2.png

Summer is right around the corner and for some of us, it’s already here. It’s the perfect time to incorporate some juicing into our diets. Sometimes I make my own juices homemade which I know are always the best way to do it, however, not everyone has the time including myself. Store bought juices will save you time and money. In this post, I will be taste-testing and be reviewing four juices you can find in just about any grocery store.

You may be asking yourself why Juice?

Most of us don’t get the recommended serving of fruits and veggies a day, including myself, so juicing is an easy way to get those in. Sometimes I’ll juice for 3 days straight and other times I’ll drink a juice as a snack or in the morning when I am not feeling that hungry.

Benefits Of Juicing:

  • Detoxifies and cleanses the body
  • Helps you to lose weight; the perfect way to start a diet is starting with a clean slate
  • Reboots your metabolism
  • Boosts immunity through all the vitamins and minerals
  • Increases energy
  • Clears skin by removing impurities from the body
  • An easy way to get a large serving of fruits and veggies daily without having to eat your veggies (perfect for picky eaters)

Juicing Terms:

  • Pasteurized: a process where the foods are heated to a specific temperature for a specific amount of time to kill potentially harmful bacteria.
  • Cold-Pressed: uses a hydraulic press to extract juice from fruit and vegetables.
  • High Pressure Processed (HPP): is a cold pasteurization technique using hydraulic fluid (normally water) placed in a chamber and pressurized with a pump which is transmitted through the package into the food itself. This process extends the shelf life & helps to maintain the essential vitamins, minerals & enzymes in our organic cold-pressed juices and functional beverages.

Now that you know the benefits and terms, let’s get started. My grocery store only carries these four brands so I decided to pick them up and taste-test each one to let you know which is the best one to buy.

4th Place – Bolthouse Farms Daily Greens:

Tastes a little bit like cucumber and celery water with a hint of sweetness. It was not my favorite but it contains apple, cucumber, celery, kiwi, banana, lemon, kale, romaine, spinach, green bell pepper, pineapple juice, root fiber, natural flavors, spirulina, and wheatgrass. If you’re not into sweet juices then you might like this one. However, I put this in fourth place because it wasn’t very sweet, it’s not Organic and it does not say that it is Non-GMO.

  • No preservatives or artificial flavoring
  • Pasteurized
  • Price: $3.29

3rd Place – 1915 Organic:

So I didn’t realize this juice was made by Bolthouse. I tried the juice with Apple, Romaine, Cucumber, Spinach, Kale, and Lemon. I guess it’s their Cold-Pressed, Organic, Non-GMO version that the Daily Greens didn’t have. I have to be honest, I wasn’t a fan of this one either. The taste was similar to the Daily Greens and I wasn’t really pleased with the cucumber-lemony taste. But again, if you are not into sweet juices then this might be for you. It is definitely better quality and a step above the regular Bolthouse juices.

  • USDA Organic
  • Non-GMO Project Verified
  • High Pressure Processed (HPP)
  • Cold-Pressed
  • Price: $3.99

2nd Place – Daily Greens Purity:

Tasted a little watered down. I guess because of the cucumber and celery. It wasn’t very sweet. This juice seems to be much higher quality. I wouldn’t mind trying other flavors but I rated this a 2.

  • USDA Organic
  • Non-GMO Project Verified
  • No preservatives or artificial flavoring
  • High Pressure Processed (HPP)
  • Cold-Pressed
  • Price: $4.99

1st Place Winner – Suja Green Delight:

Now, this was a good tasting juice. Green Delight was surprisingly sweet and easily drinkable. This juice contains apple, banana, mango, spinach, lemon, kale, spirulina, chlorella and barley grass. It has a really refreshing taste and I am happy to say I can drink this once a day and like it. It’s a brand I can be proud to buy since it’s Organic, Non-GMO, Cold-Pressed and at a very good price point. I also tried the Berry Goodness which is really sweet and good too! By the way, another flavor I like by Suja is Berry Goodness, it has beets and berries and super sweet and yummy!

  • USDA Organic
  • Non-GMO Project Verified
  • No preservatives or artificial flavoring
  • High Pressure Processed (HPP)
  • Cold-Pressed
  • Price: $2.99

Although it’s nice to make your juices homemade at home, it’s nice knowing you don’t have to. It’s a lot of work chopping, dicing, and slicing. You have to have a really good juicer which can be pricing and the juices only stay good up to 3 days in the fridge. It’s nice to be able to buy healthy juices at the store when you are on the run. Grocery store juices are actually cheaper sometimes then either juicing yourself or going to one of those fancy juiceries where it can cost you $12 for 12 oz of juice or more.

What are your favorite green juices? I’d love to try them! Share in the comments below.
