Since the beginning of the year it’s been Go, Go, Go for work. We’ve never been as busy as we are and the next month is going to kick our butts with traveling and jobs. I tend to enjoy a sweet (or 4) and if you follow me social media you’ll probably see a donut, croissant, brownie or other baked good usually posted in the afternoon. I have a sweet tooth and I know what I’m trying to do is hide the stress with this comfort food. Those matcha green tea donuts (which are delicious) can add up so I was looking for a juice that I could drink afternoon to crave my snack and give me a boost of energy. Sometimes it’s apple juice, sometimes it’s pineapple juice (fresh!) but right now it’s the Citrus Kick drink at Jamba Juice. The juice contains a blend of oranges, apples, pineapples, and ginger to turning any morning or afternoon brighter. The taste of ginger is a nice kick towards the end of each taste.
These drinks are convenient because they’re already made. That means you can run into the store, grab a juice out of the fridge and go (after paying!). Their other Cold Pressed Juices are:
Orange Reviver: When your day feels like 5 days, revive with an Orange Reviver. They have taken oranges, apples, bananas and beets and turned them into a spirit-lifting, taste bud-hugging masterpiece of mixology.
Citrus Kick: When you really want to bring up the brightness in your day, try this blend of oranges, apples, pineapples, and ginger. Just don’t forget your sunglasses.
Tropical Greens: For a truly tropical flavor, they’ve combined apples, pineapples and Supergreens. This is one island that will never be deserted.
Veggie Harvest: Take some apples. Then take some carrots, and beets, and super greens and ginger. Then take a minute to drink it all down and wonder how you ever got through your day without it.
Did I mention they’re Fresh Squeezed Juices, cold pressed, healthy, no preservatives, paleo and 100% juice? All airports should have this juice because when you’re about to go on a 16 hour flight you need that push of energy!
So along with eating my afternoon high calorie pastry, I’m always pretty bad at breakfast. Somedays I don’t even eat breakfast which just makes it worse for me at lunch time. I love muffins, especially because you can just grab one, wrap it up and head to work to eat it at your desk. That means you don’t have to spend money and it’s always great knowing you breakfast was made by you and your kitchen. Staying in the tropical citrus mood, I decided to make some banana muffins to go along with the juice. A Moist Banana White Chocolate Chip Muffin is perfect to go along with a glass of Citrus kick juice.
