I seem to have taken an unintentional blogging break after the last couple of weeks, but it pains me to leave this space unattended for too long so I thought that I'd check in today with a quick update of some drinks that I was recently introduced to and have been loving over the last couple of weeks. Meet Moju, the super drinks that are stupidly healthy, designed to make wholesome juices accessible for everyone. They taste amazing, plus, with cold weather and illness coming and indulgent christmas foods coming, it seemed the perfect time to talk about them.
Set up by Charlie and Rich, these drinks have a similar story behind them to innocent smoothies, and I think they're going to be just as big a hit. Cold-pressed and packed with vitamins and anti-oxidants they are not only incredible for your insides, but also taste great too. For those with special dietary requirements, they are also vegetarian, vegan and gluten free. You can order a fridge pack from their website online as well as farmers markets, festivals, homes, offices, parks, yoga studios and some London cafés. But watch out, because I'm sure they'll be popping up more and more often.
To be completely honest, I'm not sure I can even pick a favourite. The line is made up of three juices; The Green Juice (vitamin and potassium-rich leafy lush greens, with a twist of lemon and a hint of ginger), The Purple Juice (nutrient-rich and sweet root vegetables, balanced with crisp apple and refreshing cucumber) and The Orange Juice (a boost of Vitamin C and A from carrots and red pepper, with a ginger and turmeric kick and a twist of lemon). All come with impressive benefits and are the equivalent of 1/2 kilo of produce (four portions of fruit and veg). You can almost feel your eyes sparkling and skin clearing up after drinking them, but if you want to make them a little less healthy they work well mixed with spirits too.
Of course, you could just make your own juice at home, but I think the time and effort involved means that these come out so much better at only £2.95 per bottle. Although they may have to only be reserved for special treats. What do you think of the look of these?
