Don't be confused. These are not your ordinary juices.
Back in the day we received our fruit intake through 125ml poppers. Those days are long gone and now, cold pressed juices are taking over lunch boxes citywide. For those of you unaware of cold pressed juicing, this revolutionary process involves fruit and veg being pressed (no kidding!) to extract the nectar directly from the pulp. As the machines don't use as much heat as regular juicers, these juices are said to contain a higher quantity of vitamins, minerals and enzymes. Well, there you go.
So, to get your dose of liquid greens we've discovered where you can get the best cold pressed juices in Sydney. Drink up!
