ARÔ


ARÔ Cold Pressed Juices are all the rage now. We tried out a few of their concoctions and are convinced we're now walking beacons of prime health.



ARÔ basically did the smart thing and seized the market with their cold pressed juices. Each bottle is chock full of different fruits mixed together to give you all the nutritional value you'll need for whatever reason.

The Juices

We got five of their Pressed Juices (Rs. 400 each) and a refreshing Thambili and Lime concoction (Rs. 250).

1) Celery + King Coconut + Pineapple + Guava + Apple:
This one has 36.4 calories and is pretty much a health elixir. According to this nifty leaflet we got, here are a few health benefits that come with this drink:

  • Lowers high blood pressure
  • Promotes healthy skin
  • Lowers risk of cancer
  • Boosts immunity
  • Lowers risk of stroke

Tastewise, it's tangy with very strong notes of pineapple and apple. There's also a pleasant, king coconut aftertaste. 

2) King Coconut + Mint + Lime + Salt:
More of a refreshing coolant, this bottle has approximately 32.4 calories and comes with a sprig of mint for aesthetic purposes as well as to constantly keep your drink minty-fresh. Win win. Health benefits include:

  • Soothes indigestion and inflammation
  • Purifies and rehydrates
  • Promotes digestion and regularity
  • Encourages fast metabolism

This one's a great bowel booster from the looks of it. Best enjoyed after a heavy meal.

3) Gotukola + King Coconut + Cucumber + Apple
A delicious, healthy combo with Ayurvedic properties. It's a bit of a heavier juice mind you, on account of all the blended gotukola and cucumber. Health benefits include:

  • Helps reduce fatigue
  • Contains multiple vitamins B-B1, B5 and B7
  • Purifies and rehydrates
  • High in antioxidants

A tastier twist on your average kola kanda, the apple and mint do a great job of bringing the flavours together.

1) Pumpkin + Cinnamon + Carrot + Apple
I'm surprised nobody's hashtagging the hell out of this one. The pumpkin, carrot and apple merge together perfectly to deliver a comfortingly light tang, all tied together with a strong cinnamon hit. 
Health benefits include:

  • Rich in fibre and potassium
  • Contains anti-inflammatory properties
  • Lowers risk of cancer
  • High in phytonutrients and antioxidants


At first sip, I wasn't a big fan of the cinnamon and it felt too overpowering but upon further consumption, it turned out to be a surprisingly pleasant drink. Will I invest in this one again? Probably not, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't try it out. (Ed Note: I thought it tasted like a liquidized apple pie - amazing)

2) Ambarella + King Coconut + Pineapple + Apple
A perfect blend of citrusy goodness, this one was an instant favourite. With all this pineapple consumption I could feel my lip starting to swell up, so be careful if you have a pineapple allergy. Health benefits include:

  • Promotes healthy weight loss
  • Purifies
  • Prevents asthma
  • Lowers risk of stroke


The ambarella was the clear winner here though and complemented the pineapple perfectly. More ambarella infused drinks, please.

3) Cucumber + Watermelon + Pear
A perfect way to cool down on a hot day. Although the pear was practically nonexistent in terms of taste, the watermelon makes up for it with a fresh burst of flavour. Health benefits include:

  • Vitamin A, B6 and C
  • High in fibre
  • Purifies and hydrates

How do we obtain these juices?

This is where it gets a little annoying. They don't have a physical outlet, so you'll have to head over to one of these places.
It's a hit or miss type deal though because these sell out fast, so if you have a favourite, the chances of you being able to actually buy said favourite are a little low. 

Alternatively, you can call them up on 0777666666 and place an order. They'll deliver it right to your doorstep. 

How long can you store these for?

Okay, so one thing you have to keep in mind is that these juices are 100% fresh and healthy and contain no added preservatives, artificial colouring or flavour. Hence, the shelf life for these things is extremely short.
You'll have to consume these juices within two days.

There's a small stamp on the side of the bottles telling you exactly when and what time they expire, so look at that before you make a purchase. 

Conclusion

If you're embarking on some sort of detox, or are simply interested in healthy eating I'd totally recommend these. 

Keep in mind that these aren't your average packaged fruit juices, so the taste is a bit strong and the sugar content is basically nil. 
Still, with their extensive range, you're bound to find something that'll suit your palate.
