Here in the My Wild Crazy Life world, we don't drink sodas very often. I will admit to endulging in a single soda several times a month at most which is bad enough, I know, but we definitely don't consume them on a daily basis. For the adults, we have unsweetened tea, Coffee, or water, and the children have water or milk. I like knowing what goes into their bodies most of the time is pretty healthy. The one exception I make is juice which I serve only about once a week. Of course, the juice has to be 100% natural, no sugar added, and no dyes added in order to gain my seal of approval. Childhood obesity and type 2 diabetes are at an all time high in our country, and one of the main reason is our sugar consumption!
The FaVe Juice Company provides an alternative to sugary drinks and even juices that have sugar added to them. FaVe Juice is 100% Natural, preservative free, each serving has 3 servings of vegetables and .5 serving of fruit, and all the sweetness of Fave juice comes from the natural fruit sugars. Additionally, each 8oz serving only has 60 calories so it makes for a nice snack, or even is easily incorporated calorie-wise as a drink with a meal. When you think about an average 20 oz soda contains 250 calories, it's a no-brainer on which we should be choosing!
I was blessed to receive a package to assist my review from The FaVe Juice Company containing each of their three flavors: Strawberry Banana Kiwi, Pomegranate Blueberry Goji, and Orange Tangerine Pineapple. Since special drinks are a treat at our house, the kids were willing candidates to try the new juice!
The first night we opened the Strawberry Banana Kiwi to try. This was across the board the children's favorite juice. It had a nice Strawberry Banana Flavor to it,. but since it is 100% natural, it wasn't as sweet as many "similar" juices I have had. I could taste the veggies in the juice slightly, and the flavors tempered the sweetness a bit However, it was subtle and the kids didn't notice as the asked for seconds!
The Pomegranate Blueberry Goji is more an "adult" trio of flavors, and while the children were glad to have it in lieu of water, it really wasn't their thing. Mama loves when the kids don't enjoy something tasty because it means more of a treat for me! I liked the juice, and honestly if you are looking for a healthier Vodka Martini, add FaVe Pomegranate Blueberry Goji and you have a healthy addition to an adult drink!
The Orange Tangerine Pineapple was also loved by all and it has a nice tropical flavor to it. I could taste the vegetables a little more in this one, especially the carrots and tomato, but it wasn't super intense. The kids mentioned they could taste it, but they all agreed they still enjoyed it while asking for seconds.
FaVe Juice is different in my opinion than any other brand on the market, even the one on the commercials touting all the veggies and fruit servings! I personally would rate this juice as an older child or adult juice rather than a small child. I know my 2 year old doesn't like juice much at all, and when he does he prefers plain apple, or plain grape, etc. However, I think it's perfect for ages 4-5 up since kids really start expanding their palettes at that age. I give it a thumbs up because it meets my list of wants when it comes to juice, and I would recommend this juice to anyone who asked me about it
