Clean Juice: Organic Cold-Pressed Juices & More
Updated: Feb 17
Clean Juice is a franchise started in 2015 by Landon and Kat Eckles after diving into research on juicing and smoothies. Clean juice serves organic cold-pressed juices, smoothies, wraps, acai bowls and more. As of 2023, there are approximately 170 locations in 30 states. On a trip to Georgia I happened to get told about the Pooler location. My love of cold-pressed juices implored me to check it out.
The store itself was clean and friendly. An array of beautiful fruits, veggies and other ingredients lay neatly compartmentalized behind a protective barrier. A double width cooler near the cash register contained juices and nut milks. A small display of store brand merchandise lined a section of the back wall. The downside to my timing being this stop was a last minute addition to my circle of travel that day. I had already eaten lunch and it was over an hour to get back to where I was staying. Taking that into account, I decided to forego ordering something off of the menu. I would have thoroughly enjoyed watching it being made and experiencing the flavors. Instead, I headed to the juice cooler which I was equally excited to check out.
The juice cooler contained six different cold pressed juices, three different flavors of nut milk and a variety of wellness shots to choose from. My deliberation led me to the orange cold pressed juice and the white nut milk. The organic orange cold pressed juice was a blend of carrot, orange, pineapple, lemon and turmeric. It was absolutely incredible! Being a fan of cold-pressed juices, I’ve tried a number of them over the years. There’s an art to creating a flavor combination, the ideal ratio of ingredients and getting the quality to go with it. This one hit on all cylinders. It was the perfect balance of sweet, smooth and satisfying. This bottle was nearly impossible to put down. My compliments to whoever created this recipe.
The white nut milk was next on the agenda. Its ingredient combination, also organic, included cashew milk, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon and Himalayan pink salt. This one also rated very high on the flavor scale. The blend of ingredients was excellent and reminded me of a vanilla milk shake. Caveat, I have been into whole foods for a long time. When I tell you it reminds me of an excellent vanilla milk shake, I’m using a nut milk based milk shake as reference. I prefer it over a regular dairy milk shake. The quality of the ingredients used was very apparent. I felt it to be more like dessert and split the bottle up between a couple of different moments where I wanted something sweet.
My experience with clean juice put it on my list of favorites for pressed juices and nut milks. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for Clean Juice locations in my travels and plan on trying some menu items in my future visits. If you’re a fan of pressed juices or clean foods, check out the website to find a location and enjoy the wonderful array of flavors. https://www.cleanjuice.com/
