Stallholders at St George’s Market continue to amaze me with their progressive thinking and creativity. Last Sunday, I came across the SqueezeJuice stall and discovered that they like to do things a bit out of the “norm” for a juice bar. On Sunday they had a spirulina smoothie on sale which was a real winner – spirulina is full of antioxidants and good for the nervous system. They also had an orange and ginger smoothie, and this coming Sunday they are going to introduce a beetroot juice, and that sounds delicious already!
SqueezeJuice also have another trick up their sleeve, as they grow, juice and process wheatgrass juice right here in Northern Ireland. They are the only Juice Brand in Northern Ireland to do this. We last had wheatgrass in a smoothie 10 years ago in Australia, so for SqueezeJuice to introduce their process to Northern Ireland is…well it’s about time, and it is a very welcome addition to the growing juicing culture in NI!
The wheatgrass is grown from organic wheat berries until it is ready for juicing, and then using a special wheatgrass juicer, they extract the juice, seal it in pouches and use some mind-blowing technology to kill off any bad bacteria, without compromising the nutrients and enzymes. And its all preservative free.
Check out the Squeeze Juice website for more information or to order your supply of Wheatgrass www.squeezejuicecafes.co.uk or you will find the team at St George’s Market on Sundays.
