Naked have launched a new campaign called 'Grab Some Good Stuff'. I was lucky enough to get one of the free bottles they were handing out at Canary Wharf Station in London. Naked Juice began as a small fresh juice company in Santa Monica, California and is now one of the biggest and fastest selling smoothie companies in the US. They call themselves Naked Juice as they have no added sugar, preservatives, artificial colours or flavours, in their products. Their juices and smoothies are 100% real fruit, with some of their products also featuring 'boost ingredients', such as vitamins, minerals, and herbs.
I received their Green Machine which is their bestselling juice. It contains the following fruits: Apples, Kiwi, Banana, Mango and Pineapple. The label proudly states that it contains a pound of fruit in every bottle. But this is not just an ordinary fruit smoothie, it also contains a blend of ten 'botanical' extracts in varying amounts. These are: Spirulina, Chlorella, Wheat Grass, Broccoli, Spinach, Blue Green Algae, Parsley, Ginger, and Garlic.
|It is quite an intriguing list of ingredients and I was extremely curious to find out what it would taste like. The colour of the juice is quite dark and almost a murky grey-green but don't let this put you off as the actual juice tastes fantastic. It is sweet and fruity, much sweeter than I was expecting. Also surprisingly for a smoothie drink the consistency is not thick. Even though there is banana in the ingredients the juice is quite 'thin' which makes it very easy to drink. I can see why this is so popular and I would definitely buy it again and try some of their other varieties.|
