Once these juices arrived at MSA we all wanted in on the sampling! We’re trying a new thing, so in this review, you’ll get to read what Emily, Liz, and Eric thought of the flavor of each juice. Let us know what you think of this format!
Project Juice recommends trying a cleanse for 3 days to see results. We just got one pack of juice so we decided to weigh in on the flavor of the juice instead of the effects of the cleanse. The juices supposed to be consumed in order from 1-6 so we tasted them in that order.
1 Green Lemon – Value $12.50
This juice is packed with greens including kale, romaine, and spinach plus celery, cucumber, green apple and lemon. It was the sweetest (and thus everyone’s favorite) green juice due to the apple and lemon. It definitely packs a green punch! This juice has 110 calories and 16g of sugar per bottle.
Emily: “All the greens hit me at once, lots of cucumber taste but it finishes sweet. I wouldn’t seek this one out individually.”
Eric: “Surprisingly sweet, lots of greens. Actually really good. It’s a surprise. Smells like you’re just gonna drink greens but it hits you with some sweetness up front.”
Liz: “I’ve had cucumber green juice before but this one was easier to drink because of the green apple and lemon.”
2 Watermelon Berry – Value $12.50
This watermelon berry juice was delicious! It is made with watermelon, young coconut water, apple, strawberry, and lime – such a refreshing combination. This is a really sweet juice that I would likely splurge on at the store. There are 145 calories and 29g of sugar in this bottle.
Emily: “I really like this and I hate watermelon! All the other fruits in this sweetened up the watermelon and I loved it.”
Eric: “I think it’s delicious! It’s refreshing.”
Liz: “It’s like drinking summer. It’s delightful.”
3 Green Ginger – Value $12.50
Ginger and greens are a great combo for people who love ginger and greens. It has the same ingredients as the first Green Lemon juice but with ginger added. The ginger was just too much for me. The Green Ginger juice has 110 calories and 16g of sugar per bottle.
Emily: “I don’t like the way it smells. No thank you. Not into the ginger.”
Eric: “I don’t like ginger so I’m not gonna like this. That was really interesting. It doesn’t have the tartness. It doesn’t smell great but it actually tastes better than #1. Maybe the ginger just cuts the sweetness.”
Liz: “I prefer #1 because it was a little sweeter.”
4 The Master – Value $12.50
This is the juice I think of when I think of a juice cleanse. It is a lemon and cayenne juice with agave added for sweetness. This packs the lowest calorie and sugar content of the juices with 50 calories and 8 grams of sugar per bottle.
Emily: “It has a very light lemon smell. Lemonade taste hits first, then an immediate tart taste followed up quickly by a cayenne kick.”
Eric: “Almost has no smell. It’s delicious! It’s tart and then there’s the kick at the end. It’s like lemonade but less sweet, like a watered down lemonade and then the cayenne kicks in on the back end. It’s pretty good, I like it. I think if you put some ice cubes in it would be really good. This is my second favorite so far.”
Liz: “It’s definitely not too sweet. It’s interesting. I’m impressed there are only 8 grams of sugar. I feel like people would tell you to start your day with this.”
5 Sweet Greens – Value $12.50
This Sweet Greens juice is very similar to the Green Lemon juice, it’s just missing the lemon! This juice has a strong greens smell and contains all that healthy stuff we all know we should be getting more of. There are 110 calories and 16 grams of sugar in a bottle of Sweet Greens.
Emily: “The smell is the best of the green drinks. I definitely liked it better than 3 but still wasn’t something I’d seek out.”
Eric: “Strong green scent. Stronger than any of the other ones so far. Weird. Really sweet, doesn’t have the tartness from the lemon. All the 3 green ones have been more drinkable than any other green drinks I’ve tried. In order, I’d rate the green juices: 1,5,3.”
Liz: “Sweeter than I expected but then I saw there was green apple in it. This is tied for the 1st green one.”
6 Cashew Mylk – Value $12.50
This was the #1 favorite of the day. We are still thinking about it. Liz pointed out that it tastes like cereal milk and that’s so accurate. It reminded me of the vegan nogs that pop up in the winter and I cannot resist. I can see how this Mylk would be the thing to look forward to at the end of a juice cleanse day – it’s the perfect reward for a day well cleansed. Because this is a nut based milk, it’s higher in calories with 290 per bottle plus 10 grams of sugar and 10 grams of protein.
Emily: “This is so good! I reminds me of the vegan nogs I look forward to in the winter months.”
Eric: “It’s absolutely delicious. I love cashews and stuff. Cinnamon comes in at the end, it’s like a nog.”
Liz: “It’s like drinking cereal milk. Ok, this is fantastic. How is this only 10 grams of sugar? That feels like a lie I wanna believe. Cinnamon toast crunch milk! More mylks, please!”
Verdict: It was so much fun trying all these juices with Liz and Eric! These are organic, cold-pressed juices shipped from California so they are not a budget item. With a membership and a 6-week commitment, you get a discount on the regular $12.50 per bottle price tag. If I wanted to reset with a juice cleanse and cash wasn’t an issue, I’d go for the convenience and ingredient quality found in Project Juice juices.
