It’s 3:00pm and your caffeine-high is almost completely gone. With so much to do and so little energy, you’re looking for a light afternoon pick-me-up.
Coffee is definitely the average Cantabrigian’s first thought, but why not try something brand new and far more nutritious right in Harvard Square? Liquiteria has exactly what you need.
According to its website, Liquiteria “pioneered the original cold pressed juice in New York City” in 1996. Ever since, a loyal community of customers has formed from busy people who like to stay healthy and balanced.
Liquiteria employs Cleanse Coaches and Ambassadors whose job is to spread their knowledge and passion for health. Customers are encouraged to approach them in order to learn more about the vast menu of juice, cleansers, smoothies, supplements, and snacks; as well as how to select the treat that best fits your lifestyle and goals.
We are all familiar with the concept of the “juice cleanse,” but Liquiteria takes cleanse drinks so much further than the old lemonade and cayenne pepper recipe. Their cleanse options range from beginner, experienced, advanced, to a whole 12-month plan.
Rather than starving the cleanser, Liquiteria’s cleanses seek to provide them with the right balance of powerful nutrients from cold-pressed juice in order to detox and replenish the body.
Those who are curious about cleansing have the option of trying out a one-day cleanse, during which the cleanser drinks four bottles of juice and ends the day with a well balanced dinner.
Juices involved in the cleanse include “All Greens,” a mixture of leafy greens with or without apple or lemon and ginger; “Mr. B,” made of carrot, beet, ginger, orange, and pineapple; and “Turmeric Tonic,” made of turmeric, probiotic, lemon, maple syrup, and filtered water.
Smoothies at Liquiteria are handcrafted and made-to-order, so you can be sure that you’re getting the freshest product possible. Options range from fruity to rich, but each smoothie is packed with healthy benefits.
If you’re looking to taste something fruity in these last few warm days of Fall, I recommend the Deep Blue Açaí. This lovely blend of açaí, blueberries, mango, vanilla almond milk, orange juice, ginger, vitamin C, and raw coconut sugar is antioxidant and vitamin rich—a great choice for building up your immune system before flu season.
If you’re still not sold on Liquiteria over coffee, go for a compromise and try the Coffee and Cacao smoothie. It’s a rich blend of fair-trade coffee, raw cacao, almond butter, bananas, chocolate almond milk, chocolate whey protein, and raw coconut sugar. Natural sweeteners and protein are what make this drink a much healthier alternative to your afternoon PSL.
So healthy is starting to win you over, but what if you’re a little too hungry for just a beverage? Liquiteria’s bowls are beyond satisfying.
For breakfast, try out a bowl of Protein Power made with steel-cut oatmeal with almond butter, peanut butter, banana, and granola to successfully hold you over until lunch time. If you’re feeling curious about the quinoa-trend on the rise in Boston, try the Sweet & Sassy bowl with red quinoa, blueberries, strawberries, bananas, almond butter, and exotic cacao maca sauce.
There is no more need to fill your body with preservatives, additives, and unnatural flavors. Liquiteria is definitely the new essential snack-stop for students and professionals in Cambridge.
