I must admit, I’m a sucker for fancy drinks…bright drinks, foamy drinks, sweet drinks, sour drinks…you name it! BUT, as you are probably aware, beverages are one of the number one health sabatogers around. They can be filled with added sugars, artificial sweeteners, and various other chemicals and preservatives.
I like to treat myself, but, when I do, I don’t like to do it with diet sodas or frappucinos. I want treats that may not be something I’d want to drink everyday, but something where I can trust that what you see is what you get. I don’t like the feeling of being tricked or deceived by food and beverage companies. It makes my blood boil!
It is for these reasons, that I was very excited to share Purity Organic Beverages with you. They sell various types of cold teas, juices, & super juices.
I had the pleasure of being sent one type of cold tea, two juices, and one super juice. Take a look:
Let’s talk about ingredients. These are 100% organic. They contain no artificial flavors or colorings, GMOs, or preservatives. Here is the catch, 3 out of these 4 do contain added sugar, in the form of organic evaporated cane juice or organic evaporated cane sugar. These 3 are the Orange Mango Paradise, Raspberry Black Tea, and Watermelon Strawberry Ade. It is for these reasons that I would consider these tasty drinks to be a less-guilty-treat, not an everyday beverage.
Now that that’s out of the way, let’s discuss what’s truly important, taste.
These drinks taste wonderful. All 4 are not overly sweet, and are perfectly refreshing. Here’s a quick breakdown of the four flavors.
Orange Mango Paradise: Reminds me of a Mango A Go Go from Jamba Juice…very tropical.
Raspberry Black Tea: Herbaceous black tea with a light sweetness and subtle raspberry flavor.
Watermelon Strawberry Ade: Lightly sweetened lemonade, with the fun, fruity addition of strawberry and watermelon juice.
Orange Carrot Turmeric Mango Superjuice: My personal favorite. Not only is it the only one I tried that contains ZERO added sugar, but it’s also my favorite taste wise. This juice hits every part of my taste buds. The orange, carrot, and mango juices create a sweet base for the drink, while turmeric provides an earthy warmth, and just when you think it’s over….!BAM! ginger juice punches you in the back of the throat, and it’s wonderful.
Purity Organic Beverages are based out of San Francisco, but are available nationwide.
