I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Millennial Central for Evolution Fresh. I received coupons for Evolution Fresh juices to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
Real talk: I would drink a fancy juice every day if I could afford to. I can
sometimes often slack on eating a balanced diet and I feel like juices, especially green juices, can help fill in some nutritional holes on days very few vegetables make it onto my plate (hey, it happens!) So, I was super pumped at the chance to try out the Evolution Fresh Juice line (which is actually surprisingly affordable, especially when they are on sale like the were at Publix recently!)
What makes Evolution Juices so great?
- Evolution Fresh offers a variety of juice flavors like Organic Spicy Lemonade, Coconut Water and Greens, and Sweet Burn
- Evolution Fresh peels, presses, and squeezes raw fruits and vegetables. After chilling, blending and bottling their juices, they use High Pressure Processing (HPP) to help protect flavors and nutrients. Click here to watch a video on how this process works. Note: while the fruits and vegetables used to make the juices are raw, the juices themselves are not.
- You can have fun with them! Easy Icy pops recipe: Blend your favorite Evolution Fresh juice with diced fruit, pour in molds and freeze. You can even add a dash of your favorite adult beverage for an adult-only version (or skip the pops and go straight to a strawberry lemonade daiquiri!)
The #1 thing I love about Evolution Fresh? They are 100% JUICE. No added sugars, no weird chemicals or preservatives. Just look at the ingredient list - I can identify every single thing on it!
I've been drinking coconut water after every run this summer so I was excited to try out their Pineapple Coconut Water. It tastes just like my beloved coconut water but with a sweeter kick. After taking a sip I added the rest to a smoothie for Travis and I post-run last weekend. I threw it in my blender with 1/2 a frozen banana and a cup of frozen blueberries. Delicious and the perfect post-run sugar kick we needed!
Their Essential Greens with lime tastes VERY green so just be aware before you take your first sip! It's tasty, and is crammed full of goodness, but don't expect the sweetness usually associated with a juice. My favorite was definitely the Defense Up; this gorgeous concoction of orange, pineapple and mango. I will definitely be grabbing some more of that next time I'm feeling under the weather and want to treat myself to some extra vitamin C!
