Ceres Organic Juices just launched their ready to go organic fruit smoothies at CHFA East, Canada’s largest conference and trade show for the natural health and organics industry.
I was introduced to Ceres a few years ago from my South African co-workers who shared it with us at work. Their juices are organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, vegan and kosher. Plus, they tasted really great and comes in pear, peach, passion fruit, mango and guava.
Their new line of to go smoothies comes in 3 flavours – Mango, Tropical and Apple Berry. These are packed at the peak of freshness to preserve the pure, crisp taste of exotic real fruit from around the world. If you’re really busy, you can get your “five-a-day” recommended servings of fruits and 100% of your daily Vitamin C.
We got a few to try and review.
The tropical blend of smoothie has organic mango puree, organic guava puree, organic apple puree, organic banana puree, organic passion fruit juice, organic cherry puree, water, organic orange juice concentrate, dehydrated grinded organic apple and organic lemon juice concentrate, and vitamin c.
At first you can taste the bits of chunky fruit and then the stronger taste of mango and guava. Those 2 fruits give it a tropical taste that is unique from most drinks.
There has organic mango puree, water, dehydrated grinded organic apple, and organic lemon juice concentrate and vitamin c.
This smoothie has the least amount of ingredients in it because its mostly mango puree. They use the red mangoes unlike the Ataulfo mangoes we usually see in stores in North America and are sweet. The taste is more mild and not too sweet.
Inside, the Apple berry blend are organic apple puree, organic banana puree, organic blueberry puree, organic strawberry puree, water, organic cherry puree, dehydrated grinded organic apple and organic lemon juice concentrate, and vitamin c.
You get the dominant flavour of the apple and berries, and then the tang of lemon.
The best way to drink these are chilled as its more enjoyable. Drink it as you go out the door or even on your commute to work or as a snack. If you need a quick way to get fruits in your diet, this might be for you.
You can find these smoothies at select Ambrosia, Pusteris, and Natures Emporium stores in Ontario.
