The Juice Truck is a food truck that serves cold pressed juices and smoothies. They try to use local and organic produce whenever possible. Their cold press machine that they use to make the juice also retains all of the vitamins and nutrients found in the produce so it is healthier than juice off the shelf from the grocery store. The truck is located at Water Street and Abbot in Gastown.
I’ve always wanted to try the Juice Truck, but I’ve never had the chance until recently when I was walking around Gastown in the afternoon. The pressed juices take longer to make than the smoothies, so if you order one, you may have to wait around for a few minutes.
I had the aloe green juice ($7.50), which is made with pineapple, orange, spinach, mint, lemon, coconut water, aloe vera, and Himalayan rock salt.
I was impressed by how good this juice tasted. It had a good balance of sweet, refreshing, and earthy flavours. Nothing was overly dominate, but everything blended together nicely. I enjoyed the hints of mint flavour that you picked up.
I think the amount of juice they give you is perfect. It is a decent size cup, but it is nothing over the top. It was a good amount of juice and it left me feeling nice and refreshed after. The only downside is how expensive it is, but it takes a lot of produce to make juice and if they are using local products, then I can understand why it is so pricy.
Overall, I am happy I tried the juice truck. If I was rich, I would come here all the time because the juice tastes great and it makes you feel good after you drink it. Unfortunately I can’t justify spending as much money as I would for lunch for juice on a regular basis, but I think it is worth a try for a special treat.
Yes, for expensive, but delicious fresh juice.
