Hawaii Mom Blog: Pressed Juicery

Pressed Juicery

Once upon a time, I was interested in the juice cleanse craze. But instead of jumping on the wagon, I did some research and found out that while it gave some people massive amounts of energy; for others it made them cranky. I considered the latter to be highly likely in my case and never thought about it again.

But then, Pressed Juicery - with locations in California, New York and Nevada - opened its first Hawaii store right next to Shirokiya's Japan Village Walk and images of their Freeze started to flood my Instagram feed. It looked a lot like frozen yogurt, but with the promise of no added sugar and made only with whole fruits, nuts and vegetables.

On the suggestion of a friend, I sampled all four offered flavors: greens, fruits, chocolate, and vanilla. I liked the vanilla flavor the best. It's made with almonds, dates, vanilla bean, and sea salt. It was the creamiest of the four and the sweet taste of the dates really came through.

A small, which was big enough to share, costs $5 for the Freeze alone. For $6.75, you can add toppings. I added strawberries, shredded coconut, and granola. Other toppings include blueberries, raspberries, pineapple, chia seeds, shaved almonds, honey, almond butter, cacao drizzle, dark chocolate chips, and pink Himalayan sea salt. Everything except for Nat's favorite: sprinkles.

But even without the sprinkles, the Freeze was tasty and you'll feel good about it serving it to your kids as it's a healthy choice over ice cream and other desserts.

Besides the pressed juices and freezes, they also offer coffee and signature lattes on their menu. They are open daily from 7am to 9:30pm and until 7:30pm on Sundays.
