No. Although we are very careful not to cross contaminate, many of our smoothies have nuts in them. Therefore, our products are not suitable for people with nut allergies.
Yes, we are 100% dairy free.
Our smoothies and juices are gluten free, as no gluten product is passed through our juicer, and none of our smoothie products contain gluten. However, we do have wheat products on site- although not in the main processing area. In addition, when using products such as almonds and other nuts, seeds, and superfood powders for our smoothies, we are not able to guarantee how these products have been packed at source, and are aware they could be processed at a site that has wheat or gluten products present.
Our organic juices are carefully (and lovingly) crafted in small batches. We source organic, high quality and local (when available) ingredients. A state-of-the-art cold press juicer is used to gently press the ingredients, applying no heat and thereby retaining the highest possible levels of nutrition. The juice is then bottled and immediately placed in to a blast freezer. Once frozen, they are placed into the storage freezer until dispatch. So, in short, we cold-press the fruits & veggies, blast freeze them immediately, then ship them out with dry ice to keep them frozen for the journey!
Blast-freezing means that we are placing the juice in an extremely low temperature to freeze immediately after being pressed, and therefore preserving the nutrients much faster than your typical home freezer. This renders damaging bacteria dormant, reducing the risk of harmful bacteria growth, and prevents large ice crystals which can damage food texture & quality.
If you take a look at your local grocery store cold-pressed juices, they are all pasteurized using heat or HPP (a requirement for all store juices) so they can sit on the shelves for MONTHS- No good! Our juices are 100% raw and unpasteurized, which is essential when drinking juice. In order to keep our products raw and unpasteurized, we freeze them immediately to preserve the nutrients until they arrive to your doorstep. Freezing allows for us to keep all the enzymes and nutrients intact, so that you are still getting a FRESH juice even though it is sent frozen.
You will want place all of your juices into your freezer as soon as possible (Caution: Dry ice is used for delivery). The day before you want to drink them, place them into your refrigerator to defrost, or on your countertop at room temperature.
Recommended thawing times:
- 4+ hours on a counter at room temperature
- 24+ hours in the refrigerator
It is important that if you are defrosting multiple juices to separate them as much as possible to speed up the thawing time.
For best taste and quality, please consume your juices within 24 hours of defrosting.
For maximum freshness and benefits, we suggest you enjoy your juices within one month from your delivery date.
You get a perfectly portioned cup of pre-chopped frozen fruit, vegetables, superfoods, spices and nuts. We carefully source all of our ingredients so you are getting the highest quality produce with every delicious sip!
The recommended base will be listed on the back of the cup and on our product pages. We either recommend an almond milk/nut milk base, or a coconut water base. It is fine to use another base, but please keep in mind that the smoothie will not have the same taste as it was designed to have.
Once blended, a smoothie can stay in a refrigerator for up to 12 hours, or you can place it in the freezer and let it thaw a bit before drinking it again. You can also re-blend to the consistency of your liking.
No, simply take it out of the freezer, add your liquid base, blend, and go!

Smoothies and juices are nutrient powerhouses. When you consume these beverages, you are getting high amounts of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants and phytonutrients that are easily absorbed into the bloodstream in just one sitting. With juices in particular, most people would never be able to consume the amount of nutrients that is extracted from the produce when juiced; an average of 2-5 pounds of produce can be found in most raw, cold-pressed juices. Regular consumption of smoothies and juices can give your immune system a boost, improve digestion, give you the natural energy boost we all want and need, reduce unhealthy cravings, help build stronger bodies and minds, and so much more. What’s the secret to TRUE health? It starts from the inside-out.
The USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends that fruits and vegetables make up HALF of our meals, and for good reason! The nutrients you get from fruits and vegetables are vital for the optimal functioning of every system in the body. These nutrients are also strongly associated with a reduced risk of chronic diseases.
A smoothie is when you take fruit, vegetables, superfoods, nuts, and any other ingredients, and toss it into a blender. Voila!
Juices, on the other hand, extract only the juice from fruits and veggies, and leave out the fiber. This allows you to get a blast of nutrients that will easily be taken into the body, minus the hard work your body endures during digestion- no “breakdown” required. The amount of nutrients you would get from a typical bottle of raw, cold-pressed juice would be much more than you would be able to eat for a meal.
Overall, both smoothies and juices provide two different ways to drink your way to optimum health, and offer their own set of unique health benefits.
The dictionary definition of Detox is to “abstain from or rid the body of toxic or unhealthy substances.” When purchasing a Detox Box, whether it be weekly or monthly, you are either replacing your current not-so-healthy meals or snacks, or you are adding more nutrition to your everyday routine. It is not necessary to drink only juice, or only smoothies, to reap the benefits. If you would like to use your Detox Box as a “cleanse” to detoxify your body from toxins that we take in through our air, food, water, home products, and more, check out our Detox Box Handbook (you will receive a copy of this via E-mail after your first purchase). We are here to make your life healthier and easier!
