You might remember a while back I wrote about local Canberra company, The Fix, and all of the delicious cold pressed juices in their summer range.
Since then, the team behind The Fix have been busy. On top of developing a new range of autumn juices, they have also opened up their shopfront in Fyshwick and launched Canberra’s very first cold pressed juice vending machine in the Canberra Centre.
Owners, Lucianne and Jovan, are an innovative pair, their passion for the cold pressed method and their commitment to producing a high quality product really shines through in everything they do. With these two behind it, I’m not surprised The Fix is smashing it in the local Canberra scene.
After such a kick ass summer range, I was super keen to get my hands on their new stuff for autumn. This time around they introduced some pretty obscure superfoods and I was excited to taste them all – have you ever tried cactus in a juice?
Here’s my verdict on the autumn range:
Regenerate – maqui berry, orange, beetroot, carrot, green apple, pear
Out of all the juice’s in the autumn range, Regenerate has got to be the ultimate crowd pleaser. It ticks all the boxes when it comes to taste – it’s light, fresh and sweet. Even those who don’t normally like vegetables in their juice will enjoy this little number.
I’m a big fan of berries and if this juice is anything to go by, I particularly like the macqui berry. Rich in this magic little thing known as antioxidants, the macqui berry is super delicious while also making your insides smile.
Revitalising Cleanse – moringa, kale, wheatgrass, celery, romaine, cucumber, green apple, pear
For a green juice, Revitalising Cleanse is surprisingly refreshing. Despite being packed full of dark leafy greens, including the more unusual “moringa”, this juice still manages to be light and sweet in taste.
The apple and pear nicely balance out the dark leafy greens, but the best part of this juice has to be the celery. Celery isn’t usually my fave, but it really shines in this juice and ties all the other ingredients together. If you want all the benefits of a green juice, but don’t actually like the taste of liquid lettuce, then this is the juice for you.
Radiate – camu camu, tumeric, carrot, valencia orange, ginger
It is that time of year when the seasons are changing and it seems everyone I know has a tissue permanently stuck to their face. Next time I see one of those people, I am going to tell them to drink this juice.
Radiate has all of the goodies to get you through the colder months. Camu camu isn’t something I’ve crossed paths with before, but is packed full of the good stuff, containing about 60 times the vitamin C of an orange. But it’s the tumeric and ginger that are the real heroes of this juice. They are magic for your immune system and really pack a punch.
Vital Energy – chia seeds, lucuma, almonds, cashews, dates, nutmeg, vanilla, cinnamon, himalayan salt
Vital Energy is less of a juice and more like a milk. It is creamy, nutty and a little bit sweet with just the right amount of spice.
In my opinion, the nutmeg, vanilla and cinnamon really make this cashew and almond milk pop. Those spices are some of my favourite autumn flavours. I mean, nothing says autumn like a little bit of spice in my morning milk.
To top it all off, there is the sweetness of the dates and the chia seeds add a bit of ruffage. This is definitely a juice for the start of the day.
Beauty & Balance – acai berry, beetroot, spinach, celery, green apple, pear
Do not let the dark purple colour of this juice deceive you. Beauty & Balance might look like a juice heavy in beetroot flavours, but the acai berries add a lightness that takes it straight from earthy to oh so refreshing.
The Fix team have really got the balance right with this one. They are right on trend too – acai berries are pretty popular when it comes to the “superfood” scene. And if you’re wondering, it’s pronounced “ah-sahy-ee”. I once ordered an “ackai” bowl at one of those healthy cafes and was quickly corrected by almost everyone behind the counter.
Purification – chlorella, kale, parsley, spinach, romaine, cucumber, green apple, pear
This dark green juice is not to be taken lightly. With very little in the way of anything sweet, Purification is definitely not a juice for everyone.
The green apple and pear don’t do much to take the edge off the strong green leafy taste, but I happen to be right on board the green vegetable juice bandwagon.
As a vegetarian I’m often thinking about my iron levels, but I won’t have anything to worry about if I knock back one of these bad boys every now and again.
Inner Health – nopal cactus, pineapple, pear, lemon, ground cinnamon, ground vanilla
Take a moment to imagine the best pineapple juice you have ever had and then forget about it, because this juice is way better.
Pineapple is a flavour normally reserved for hot summer days only, but the inclusion of cinnamon and vanilla makes Inner Health right at home in the cooler months.
Nopal cactus is a new phenomenon to me, but I’m told it’s good for your blood and is a great source of fibre and vitamin B. I was already a big fan of succulents in my home, now I’ll have some in my juice too please.
The Fix juice range is available for purchase online, as well as in selected dispensaries around town. You can also follow the Fix on facebook and instagram.
