As you guys know, I love juice and smoothies. That's why I love Juice it Up! Juice It Up! is a popular west coast raw juice and smoothie place that has a great variety of healthy, nutritious drinks and even bowls (acai bowls!) to choose from. Most recently, they've added fresh Ginger Shots, available in one-ounce and two-ounce servings, are permanently joining the menu.
After work one day I went over to the Juice it Up! and tried a ginger shot.
Man, let me tell you, it looks a lot prettier than it tastes. I typically like ginger but this shot was really strong and not the best tasting but, if you think about it, that's how shots are. Look at alcohol, does vodka taste delicious that you sip it? Not for meee. Same thing with this ginger shot, unlike alcohol though, this is way more healthy for you.
Ginger health benefits include:
· Boosts energy
· Aids in digestion
· Strengthens immunity
· High in Vitamin C
I was pretty tired because I didn't sleep much and had to work and did notice a bit of an energy boost afterwards. It made me feel good, too. I believe the one ounce was $2.25 and the two ounce was $3.25 which at first I felt was a title steep but...honestly it's cheaper than alcoholic shots and are healthier for you!
I was also given a coupon book which was filled with "BOGO" coupons, free 16 oz smoothies, free pretzels with the purchase of a smoothie, and more! It's an $85 value! So, along with the ginger shot I got a pineapple smoothie, too. I'm not sure what flavor because the smoothie maker was super helpful. I stood there looking at their large variety, debating, and he immediately asked "what fruit do you like?" I said "pineapple, banana," so he said "I have a great pineapple smoothie with passion fruit juice, pineapple juice..."etc. and I just said okay and he made it. It was very delicious.
