It’s no secret I love juices and smoothies and I’m always on the hunt for great juice bars in Dublin. One of favourite places is The Juicery in Georges Street Arcade in Dublin 2. They are the only juice bar in Dublin who cold press on site, meaning all of the juices are made fresh while you wait.
SO WHAT IS COLD PRESSING?
A Cold-pressing juicer A.K.A masticating juicer is one that uses a hydraulic press to extract juice from fruit and vegetables, as opposed to other methods such as centrifugal or single auger.
These juicers work by first crushing and then pressing fruit and vegetables for optimal juice quantities. As they don’t produce as much heat as other juicers more of the nutrients are retained whereas in centrifugal juicers the fast speeds can destroy enzymes.
SO WHAT DO YOU CHOOSE AT THE JUICERY?
Well to be honest they are all great but if you are looking for a pick me up and you’re done with coffee for the day then look no further that their turmeric shot (€2.50) which will wake you up from the inside out and has great health benefits too. I’m also a huge fan of fresh wheatgrass shots as they are a great source of chlorophyll, which is great for our blood. It’s also great for detoxing and alkalinizing the body too.
Well they are all good but my fav is ‘Green Supreme” which has kale, cucumber, spinach, celery, parsley and wheatgrass!
I have two favorites here and I add Kama hemp juice www.healing-with-hemp.com to both and here’s why? Kama hemp juice is a nutritionally potent raw living food. It is loaded with essential supplements that a lot of us are lacking in our modern diets.
The potency of Kama Hemp Juice comes from the most important ingredient, Cannabidiol (CBD). CBD is a strong anti-oxidant that helps to detoxify your body. It also boosts the immune system and helps to restore balance and with regular consumption it can increase energy and even improve sleep.
So I add it into my top pick above, which is the Basil Berry. This is delicious and comforting due to the coconut milk but its also refreshing thanks to the berries!
