Juicing diets seem to be all the rage for getting in shape for summer don’t they? Whilst one cannot live on juice (diets) alone (in my opinion), juicing is a pretty snazzy way to get some of that crucial 5 a day in to your diet. In fact, I bought a new blender in an attempt to bash some fresh smoothies and juices out for summer, but I used it once and now it is redundant in my kitchen. Woe is the blender.
When Savse got in touch to see if I wanted to try out some of their pre-made juices in handy little bottles, I felt like it was the final nail the blenders coffin. That week where I used it was great and all, but buying fruit is eeeeefffort (I jest, it’s not actually that bad, I just always forget when I got the shop and get side tracked by biscuits).
I was intrigued by the Savse Smoothies as they for once, don’t contain A LOAD OF BANANA, like most smoothies do at the supermarket. I’m not a massive banana fan and I always find they are too gloopy for me to handle a lot of the time. Not to mention the flavour always seems to dominate whatever flavour of smoothie you’re trying to make/drink. Each one is 2 of your 5 a day which works really well for me, considering my regular diet is pretty unhealthy with minimal fresh fruit and veg on the go. I just forget to eat it and always have something else in which needs eating first, honest.
As Savse juices are a mixture of fruit and vegetables, I can imagine some people not taking to them as well as others. The Super Purple, for example, which contains beetroot is overpowered by the beetroot flavour, but you do get a nice tangy after taste from the lemon and lime. Super Red was probably my favourite out of them all, as it was a really tart strawberry and orange flavour, almost like drinking jam… But in a more more palatable way. You could barely taste the broccoli or kale in it, but they’re not the most offensive flavours in the world anyway really.
Overall, worth a try if you’re lazy like me and need a quick fix of something healthy when you’re out and about. They’re fairly small bottle sizes, but really filling at the same time. I found them really good to have for breakfast on days in between my protein shake when I fancied something a little different.
