I’ve had vegan food a few times before, but it’s been awhile. Village Juicery was kind enough to send me some of their products to try and I thought I’d share my thoughts on them with you.
The nut milk and breakfast jar were super delicious. The nut milk kind of tasted like unsweetened Asian milk tea and it had a really nice flavour. The breakfast jar was a bit too much for me as I don’t usually eat a huge breakfast.
I also tried their “Be Nourished” and “Be Radiant” juices. “Be Nourished” had apples, cucumber, kale, and swiss chard in it, and I was actually very surprised at how tasty it was. I always put kale in my own smoothies, but they’re usually packed with pineapples or berries. “Be Radiant” had carrot, sweet potato, lemon, a granny smith apple, and a tumeric root, and although quite refreshing, it was a little too strong for my taste.
I very rarely eat vegetables and the plant protein salad was huge, so I wasn’t able to finish it. The maple tahini is as delicious as it sounds.
A lot of places that claim to have organic products don’t actually have organic products. Village Juicery is Toronto’s first and only USDA Organic certified organic juicery, as well as the first Canadian raw cold-pressed juice company to publish nutritional facts on juice labels.
They prepare their 100% organic juices as well as their plant-based breakfast jars and salads every night at their own facility in Toronto, and deliver them to their three locations and more than fifty retail partners before the city wakes up every morning.
The nut milk, “Be Nourished” juice, and breakfast jar were my favourites and I definitely recommend trying them.
