In a land filled with smoothies and healthy options, what I fondly remember is the delicious taste of Jugo Juice (namely, my favourite Watermelon Wiggle). During the summer time, my husband and I would visit and that would be our go-to drink – it was refreshing, sweet and mixed with watermelon, mango and tropical fruit juices.
They also have a lot of other great options (pb and chocolate is another one of my faves). Jugo Juice recently invited me to try their new items, including their new drink: Meet Your Matcha. Made with blueberries, bananas and matcha, it’s vitamin and antioxidant rich with real fruit, no added sugar and no artificial ingredients. This drink is available for a limited time now until June 13, 2018.
Jugo Juice also introduced new sandwiches and wraps just in case you were looking for a quick lunch or bite while you’re grabbing a smoothie or juice. The sandwiches are made with local favourite Terra Breads Heritage sourdough bread or Ace Bakery’s schiacciata bread.
I tried the Philly Cheesesteak on schiacciata bread, Kale Chicken Caesar wrap and the Mediterranean Roasted Vegetable on schiacciata bread.
The Philly Cheese steak consists of steak, provolone, red peppers, spinach, red onion and garlic aioli. It’s a nice, filling sandwich that has a good balance of veggies and meat.
The Kale Chicken Caesar wrap is good for a snack – grilled chicken breast, fresh kale and cheddar slathered in garlic lover’s caesar dressing. They do not mess around with the sauce, and it does pack a garlicky punch!
Finally, the Mediterranean Roasted Vegetable was my favourite of the bunch – made with fire-roasted eggplant, sun-dried tomatoes, olive tapenade, basil pesto, artichoke, red pepper and spinach. This sandwich is filling, nourishing and has a good rustic taste to it.
