I’m already a huge fan of Cawston Press so when they got in touch asking if I would like to try out their new vegetable and fruit blends, I couldn’t wait to give them a try. There are three new vegetable and fruit blends – Sweet Greens, Sunshine Blend and Radiant Roots – delicious and intriguing drinks that will revitalise your taste buds.
Featuring nothing but pressed fruit and veg (Cawston never use concentrate) and all natural ingredients, each is free from any added sugar, sweeteners, preservatives or colourings. The drinks are carefully blended and mixed with a little water to make them refreshingly drinkable. These distinctive recipes were inspired by the juice bar culture and use fresh ingredients found in kitchen gardens.
Sweet Greens (39% apple, 30% iceberg lettuce, 8% pear, 2% cucumber, lemon, water and garden mint extract) is a beautiful pale green drink featuring Cawston’s trademark apple juice along with crisp salad vegetables. The iceberg lettuce gives a fresh clean flavour while the cucumber and garden mint compliment and intensify this freshness. The apple juice lends it a certain sweetness but the splash of water balances this to bring out the other flavours. I think this one was actually my favourite it was just so refreshing.
Sunshine Blend (26% apple, 24% carrot, 21% orange, 7% celery root juice, lemon and water) is a refreshing alternative to the usual glass of orange. It’s bold and bright blend of Cawston’s apple juice with carrot, orange and celery. Again that splash of water is added to give it a lightness not normally associated with breakfast juices.
Radiant Roots (47% apple, 24% carrot, 8% beetroot, lemon, water and ginger extract) is a stunningly coloured drink featuring Cawston’s apple juice and three roots. The proportions of apple, carrot and beetroot are just so to give the perfect rich fruity balance.
The glorious colour of these juices were a huge hit with my little ones, while the whole bursting with goodness thing was an even bigger hit with me. I must admit that I am not always keen on vegetable blends myself but the natural sweetness of pressed fruit really does make all the difference – they were delicious. We really enjoyed all of these new juices and they will definitely be on my next shopping list!
These new vegetable and fruit blends set the bar for juice flavour and are available now in the chilled drinks cabinets at Tesco and in good independent stores priced at RRP £2.99 (750ml carton)
