Sip & Feel Incredible: Evolution Fresh - a delicious, refreshing bottled juice

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.

Evolution Fresh is just different, in a really delicious and healthy way. They offer a variety of juices to satisfy even the pickiest eater's taste while staying true to their roots; a fresh picked orange from the founders back yard started Evolution Fresh! Now-a-days, Evolution Fresh buys most of their produce locally, while offering non-GMO products, and organic varieties of some of their juices as well.  As you all know I'm on a mission this year to get fit and Evolution Fresh is a great way to stay on track... After all, a fit body is made in the kitchen - or in this case, a "juicery".

Evolution Fresh peels, presses, and squeezes raw fruits and veggies to make their drinks irresistibly tasty. After chilling, blending, and bottling Evolution Fresh cold presses their juices using a technique referred to as high pressure processing, which helps the flavors and ingredients stay fresh! Although these babies aren't considered "raw", they are made from raw fruits and veggies, allowing for a satisfying and hydrating beverage!


This summer in Florida has been a scorcher, temps on the rise and the humidity through the roof -  especially while visiting the beach. I always try to have water on hand to stay hydrated but some days I just need something different, something healthy, something that has some flavor to it... Luckily, I found Evolution Fresh - a refreshing blend of fruits and veggies fused together to make phenomenal juices that are good for you! Evolution Fresh helps me stay healthy, cool, and hydrated even on the hottest of days!

The first Evolution Fresh beverage I tried was their Organic Strawberry Lemonade, I actually opened this flavor inside of Whole Foods, embarrassingly enough I just couldn't wait to get a taste. Plus, I had just finished yoga on the beach, so I have an excuse! I loved it the second I tried it, the Organic Strawberry Lemonade is tangy and sweet, the perfect combination. It's packed full of vitamin C. Hubby and I were passing it back and forth while we browsed through Whole Foods to do our shopping and decided we needed to grab another on our way out! It's that good!

The next flavor I tried was the Essential Greens with Lime, think of every green mixed together - it's ridiculously tasty, it just wasn't for me... So I added it into a green smoothie recipe I use regularly and made an Extra Green Smoothie! I normally use almond milk or water which leave my smoothies with a funky taste, I'm so glad I tried using the Essential greens with Lime, it compliments my current smoothie recipe like no other - I'm obsessed! With so many greens in one smoothie, how could I not be? I was left feeling satisfied and extremely healthy, which means this smoothie is definitely a repeat in our home!

Want to make your own EXTRA Green Smoothie?

The recipe is super simple: 
I use about 1/2 of the Essential Greens with Lime, 2-3 handfuls of additional spinach, 1/4 a large cucumber; chopped, 2 bananas, 10-15 strawberries, and a handful of blueberries! 

Blend and Enjoy!

Now get this, you aren't only getting the small amount of greens you added yourself... adding in the Evolution Fresh Essential Greens with Lime means your smoothie now contains additional cucumber and spinach, as well as celery, romaine lettuce, kale, lime, parsley, wheat grass, and clover sprouts!

Talk about an EXTRA Green Smoothie and the best part - it tastes INCREDIBLE!

I also had the opportunity to try the Pineapple Coconut Water, Super Green, Organic Sweet Burn, Organic V, and the Sweet Greens with Ginger.

The Pineapple Coconut water is a clean and refreshing blend, the perfect beach drink! I'm a huge fan of adding a tiny dash of coconut rum into it as well, if you feel so inclined. With only pineapple and coconut water on the ingredient list, these are so much healthier than other brands of coconut water I've seen on the market and so much tastier!

The Super Green is super rich with greens and tastes deliciously healthy. I loved how clean it tastes while still having a kick of sweetness. I enjoyed my juice with one of Evolution's Harvest bars, which are so healthy and scrumptious; Chalk full of seeds, nuts, and granola - making them a great, clean snack to pair with a juice! The Super Green juice includes orange juice, mango puree, apple juice, pineapple juice, raspberry puree, spirulina, chlorella, wheat grass, barley grass, and dulse! So good!

After the Organic Strawberry Lemonade, I didn't think I would like any of the other juices as much... Boy, was I wrong! The Organic Sweet Burn is the best morning drink I have ever tried. It's refreshing with a punch, the perfect wake-me-up blend featuring a dash of cayenne pepper as well as Organic coconut water and organic juices (apple, pineapple, beet, ginger, lemon)! Without getting my caffeine kick, the cayenne pepper helps keep me jazzed while sipping this - the perfect answer for those of us trying to ditch our coffee habit!

The Organic V is a fun blend, made from Organic juices - carrot, apple, celery, lemon, beet, spinach, lime, parsley, and ginger! The beet and carrot stand out the most to me in the juice but they are complimented nicely by the taste of the apple and the strong punch of tang the lime adds! I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the Organic V, the blend of the juices kind of scared me... but I'm glad I tried it, I would've been missing out on a delicious and healthy treat if I hadn't.

I tried the Sweet Greens with Ginger last and decided it's another great blend to mix into things - it's decent alone but mixing it into a homemade ice cream recipe sounded way more tempting than drinking it alone. I froze the Sweet Greens with Ginger into ice cubes, then mixed it with frozen bananas, and frozen raspberries to make a homemade fro-yo with my Swirlio. The taste was phenomenal and it was so easy to make! If you are looking fore more recipe ideas you can always check out The Almanac, which is full of great recipes and information about Evolution Fresh!

Who would have thought? Bottled juices like Evolution Fresh can be so healthy and maintain the delicious flavors of all of our favorite fruits and veggies. I hope that after reading about my love for these juices that you run into your nearest location and try one for yourself. If you give Evolution Fresh a try, be sure to comment and let me know what flavor you tried and what you think!
