In the last few years the juicing market has absolutely exploded in a fashion not seen since the world started embracing selfies. (Well, maybe…) I’ve undertaken juice cleanses which promised to leave my skin and body feeling revitalised, green juice detoxes that claimed to get my metabolism under control and even invested in at-home blending equipment to ensure I’m getting a daily dose of goodness even when I’m rushing about and surviving on popcorn and lattes. I have a great love for juicing, not only because it’s easy to integrate into my incredibly busy lack-of-routine, but because it’s a tasty way to ensure you’re feeding your tummy with the nutrients it needs. Although many of the juices on the market appear to be ‘healthy’ options, most contain a huge amount of sugar and use non-organic ingredients. However, Plenish provide a great (and affordable) alternative that ensures your body is fed effectively without overdosing on sugar and chemicals; all their ingredients are organic and there’s even a handy accompanying book to provide a little education on how the body works, which juice is right for your needs and how to concoct the perfect drink to enjoy at home. Plenish is much more than just another juicing company – this is a way of life.
Put simply, Plenish have really made a concerted effort to ensure you’re getting the best possible bottle of beverage – rather than just a mushed up bottle of veg that’s chucked together to make a quick buck. They say: “Our hydraulic press imported from the US gently and completely extracts the natural vegetable and fruit juices unleashing the phytonutrients, vitamins, trace minerals, enzymes, and other vital elements from our organic produce. This results in the finest quality and flavour which is unequalled by any other method of juice extraction. It’s actually a two-step process: first, the food goes through a grinder and then, goes through the hydraulic press. The process produces juice so fine and pulp-free, it can be absorbed into your blood stream to feed your cells within 10 to 15 minutes.”
From the coconut and chilli Spicy Lemonade, to the Sweet Sexy Green (with pear, kale, spinach and cucumber) there’s definitely something to tickle your tastebuds. Cherry Beets contains cherry, beetroot and lime, while Pine Apple includes pineapple, mint, apple and aloe vera for a refreshing and uplifting treat for the skin. I love the Cacoao Maca Cashew Milk (which takes like chocolate milk but includes dates, vanilla, maca, cacao, cashew and cinnamon) as well as the vanilla variety which is fab at breakfast time. All of the juices and smoothies on offer taste glorious and are a real treat; I’ve definitely come across my fair share of disgusting concoctions that leave me feeling a bit ill, but every single one of the Plenish juices got gobbled up within a matter of minutes when they arrived at my door. (A few consumed immediately one after the other!)
You can buy the single juices, subscribe to a weekly delivery of your favourites or embark on a semi-hardcore cleanse – the choice is yours. However, if you prefer to pop a few in your weekly shopping basket then you can also nab these online via Ocado with priced starting at only £5.95; that’s definitely how I’m going to keep up my supply! What’s even better is that Plenish have written an accompanying book which not only provides an education on your digestive system, but pinpoints the right juices and concoctions to meet your daily needs… Be it a lack of energy, skin conditions, pooping problems or even mood swings. I love the concept and the fact you can tackle issues by adjusting your diet; after all, they say your gut is your second brain and has a huge impact on your overall well-being. Plenish provide the tools to integrate juicing and healthy choices into your daily life, encouraging you not just to undertake an intense cleanse and go back to your usual routine the next week, but to make informed and educated choice every day for a healthier body and well-rounded outlook. I’m sold… Pass me the blender and a couple of beetroots.
