For a refreshing and incredibly healthy drink, look into Magic Mix Juicery located on 102 Fulton Street. In a world of artificially caffeinated energy drinks and sugary sodas, tasty but healthy beverages can be hard to come by. Magic Mix Juicery has come to the rescue by offering a variety of cold pressed juices, smoothies and even flavored waters. Jil Larsen, the owner and founder of Magic Mix Juicery, started the company in order to develop a place where she could serve customers clean and healthy drinks that are not only delicious, but offer the benefits of organic ingredients. Her drinks are filled with body healthy foods such as kale, spinach, and ginger, as well as smoothies that range from classic ingredients like banana and strawberries to exotic types like cacao and mesquite.

While visiting the Juicery, we were able to try a few of the cold pressed juices. The Root Awake is a juice under the Roots section in the menu and consists of carrot, apple and ginger. The ginger creates a sharp and exhilarating taste while the apple and carrot add a sweet element that tempers the delicious force of ginger. It’s sharp enough and sweet enough to awaken the senses without a synthetic sugary taste. This is the type of juice one would drink to get rid of that drowsiness that tends to hit right after lunch.

Next was the Detox Quickie, with pineapple, mint, lime and wheatgrass. The mint and the lemon were the two prominent tastes, which made the drink incredibly enjoyable and refreshing. The mint lent a cool feeling while the lemon gives the crisp taste, making it a perfect drink for summer. Not to mention the detoxifying benefits of both wheatgrass and pineapple—a detox never tasted so good.

Next was the Green Eyed Candy, which is packed with kale, spinach, ginger, pineapple, apple and lemon. Though ginger and lemon are usually dominant flavors, this drink was surprisingly sweet. The apple, spinach and kale blend perfectly together and create a fresh taste. It was sweet like standard juice, but the naturalness of the ingredients was obvious and made the sugary taste more flavorful than an artificially sweetened juice would be.

Another Magic Mix detox special is the Detox Painkiller. Warning, this is a drink has a kick! With a combination of green apple, lemon, ginger, cayenne and E3live, your senses will be awakened and heightened by the exhilarating taste. The ginger and cayenne create a sharp taste that is delightfully tart—definitely for the savory fans out there. The green apple and lemon add a fresh flavor that blends wonderfully with the strength of the cayenne and ginger without overwhelming the senses.

So whether you’re looking for a sweet taste, spicy juice blend or a smooth and cold smoothie, Magic Mix Juicery has a drink for every type of craving.
