Have you noticed me complaining about the weather lately? I just can’t seem to help myself. It has been positively frigid here in New York, and I’ve had a hard time focusing on anything other than the icy temperature and my freezing face!
Thankfully, it warmed up a little earlier this week. Nothing crazy, but two digits are definitely better than one when it comes to winter temps!
I decided to take advantage of the relatively balmy weather (ha!) and go for a winter walk in Central Park. But first, I need a little fortification, so I stopped by Jamba Juice to try their new Cold Pressed Juices.
I can’t wait to tell you about the delicious juice I tried, and keep reading, because I also have a Jamba Juice gift card giveaway!
Since I was planning a walk in Central Park anyway, I stopped by Jamba Juice’s Columbus Circle location. It’s somewhat hidden in The Shops at Columbus Circle, but head downstairs and you’ll find it in the basement at Whole Foods. Whether you’re visiting New York or a local, it’s the perfect stop before a walk in Central Park, which is just a block away.
When I arrived at the counter, I was pleasantly surprised to find that Jamba Juice was giving away samples of the Cold Pressed Juices. Who doesn’t love a free sample? Not me, for sure!
After trying each flavor and a little debating, I decided to go with Orange Reviver, a mix of oranges, apples, banana, and beets. After being cooped up due to cold weather, I was ready for a pick-me-up, and this flavor ended up being the perfect choice!
My husband is not the biggest fan of beets, so I tend to choose them whenever he’s not around. The Orange Reviver flavor was fresh tasting and delicious, and the beets were well balanced by the other ingredients.
I even got Joel to try my Orange Reviver later, and he liked it. I may have a beet convert on my hands!
Jamba Juice Cold Pressed Juices come in three other flavors, too:
- Citrus Kick (oranges, apples, pineapples, and ginger)
- Tropical Greens (apples, pineapples, and super greens)
- Veggie Harvest (apples, carrots, beets, super greens, and ginger).
Each of these Fresh Squeezed Juices is paleo-friendly, cold pressed, made from 100% juice, and contains no preservatives.
They’re a healthy option for on-the-go goodness, and I love that I can get delicious, fresh pressed juice without trying to squeeze a juicer into my tiny NYC kitchen. That is just not going to happen!
After picking up my juice and warming up a bit, I headed outside to Columbus Circle and Central Park!
Central Park is so beautiful in winter, especially after a fresh snow. Everything looks so bright and sparkly, and it’s not as crowded as in summer.
I love all the beautiful arches found throughout the park.
In the summer, this field would be full of people. I had it all to myself on this day though!
I think my favorite thing about Central Park is how it feels like an oasis from the city, even though you’re still surrounded by tall buildings and busy streets!
