One of the fun perks of blogging is not simply testing new items, but the fact I’m often sent the latest, newest versions of products I already love. And today’s post is no exception (Sponsored posts fund adventures and this blog…thank you for your support!)
I discovered Naked Juices back when my boys were very young. Not a fan of giving them standard store bough juice, but knowing they too occasionally wanted a sweet treat, I looked for an alternative. Naked Juice seemed to be chock full of fruits and veggies, claiming to have over 1 pound of fruit per bottle. I bought a bottle of Green Machine, crossed my fingers, and gave them small cups of the thick, green juice.
They LOVED it.
And I loved that they were drinking up actual fruits and veggies, with no added sugars or preservatives, compared to the artificial sugar water with “natural flavoring” that so many other juices contain. It was a sweet treat indeed.
Last month, Naked Juice sent me one of their newest products, Berry Almond Nutmilk, to try out, hopefully enjoy, and therefore mention it on this very blog.
Confession: I don’t like almond milk. So when the fresh, ice packed container full of Berry Almond Nutmilk arrived, I immediately handed it out to my family. Busy with yard work and helping Geoff and I load up our car for the big move to South Carolina, everyone was hungry and thirsty…and would make the perfect guinea pigs for this new beverage.
It was no surprise that everyone LOVED it, so I caved and gave the drink a try myself. I was pleasantly surprised that the taste wasn’t too sweet nor too “nutty”. And with 11 grams of plant based protein per serving, it made a great post yard work/mid packing / loading the car recovery drink for this vegetarian.
About Berry Almond Nutmilk:
- Each bottle of Berry Almond Nutmilk contains: 26 blueberries, 8 blackberries, 2 raspberries, 1 strawberry, 24 almonds, 1 3/4 apples and 1/3 banana.
- Berry Almond Nutmilk is gluten-free, vegan and dairy-free.
- This delicious, non-dairy smoothie blends together the goodness of fruit, almond milk and soy protein to deliver 11g of plant protein per bottle.
Now, I’ll be the first to admit, whole foods straight from the garden to your mouth are the best options. But I don’t always have the time nor ability to reach for whole foods when hunger strikes, so sometimes convenience wins. Naked Juice is convenient for the active, on-the-go individual who knows it’s important to incorporate fruits and veggies into their diet, but doesn’t always have the time to chop, slice, cook or blend. And when on the go, it sure beats reaching for a soda or sports drink.
The newest products from Naked Juice – Berry Almond Nutmilk, Bright Beets, Chia Cherry Lime, Chia Sweet Peach, Proteins & Greens, and Kale Blazer – offer a delicious blend of fruits and vegetables and pack a nutritional punch. You can learn more about them on their website: Nakedjuice.com
