Jugo Juice has been cranking out new drinks for their 20th anniversary as well as reintroducing their classic drinks from the past. They have 6 new drinks that launched in the last few weeks for their cold brew and matcha series – Jugo Java, Berry Buzz, Outer Space, Matcha Peachu, Never Too Matcha, and Meet Your Matcha. Mega Matcha and Gold Digger are two new items outside of the series. We got a chance to try them all and here is our take on them.
Are you a cold brew lover?
Cold brew has a lower acidity compared to regular coffee, plus it gives you an extra jolt to your day. It is full of antioxidants, phytochemicals and chlorogenic acids to help support healthy blood sugar levels. Each Jugo Juice coffee-based smoothie contains up to three servings of fruits and vegetables, no added sugar, and no artificial colours or ingredients. Below are the 3 drinks with cold brew.
This has cold brew coffee, bananas, dates, unsweetened almond milk, and coconut milk. It is refreshing and sweet. You will notice strong taste of banana with subtle hints of coffee. This was our favourite of the 3 drinks.
The Berry Buzz has cold brew coffee, blueberries, raspberries, no added sugar frozen yogurt, and apple juice. It’s great they partner up with Fiasco Gelato based in Calgary for their frozen yogurt. As we taste the smoothie, it has a sour apple taste with coffee after taste.
There is cold brew coffee, cinnamon, ginger, banana, dates, and unsweetened chocolate almond milk. An interesting combination of ingredients which was like a chai latte.
Can’t get enough of matcha?
Matcha is Japanese green tea and it’s been a hit in cities around the world. It boosts energy, memory and overall concentration. It helps detoxify the body and has been known to protect your liver and heart. Each matcha tea-based smoothie from Jugo Juice contains up to four servings of fruits and vegetables, no added sugar, and no artificial colours or ingredients. Below are 3 of their new menu items with matcha.
This has matcha, dragonfruit, peach, mint, apple juice, and cranberry juice. A little bit on the sweeter side and reminds us of strawberry jam.
Never Too Matcha
There is matcha, pineapple, apple, lemon, spinach, apple juice, and orange juice. You will notice the prominent pineapple taste, which is a bit sweet.
Meet Your Matcha
You will find matcha, blueberries, bananas, and unsweetened almond milk in this drink. This was our favourite from their matcha green tea menu as it is light and not too sweet.
In this smoothie is mango, lemon, peaches, unsweetened almond milk, ginger, turmeric , cauliflower, and tropical juices. It is a bit bitter with the added tumeric and cauliflower.
The Mega Matcha smoothie blends the delicious and unique flavour of matcha green tea with pineapple, unsweetened almond milk and our vanilla whey protein to create the ultimate on-the-go smoothie, packed with 25g of protein plus a kick of caffeine from the matcha. It was super subtle, not sweet at all. You’d have to really enjoy matcha to like it.
With so many new drinks on the menu, you have lots of choices to add some energy into your day. Switch up your caffeine routine for something you can feel better about.
