I'm feeling a little Tyler Perry, Madea moment this morning.
For the longest time I've been and praying for a juice and smoothie bar to make an experience in this great little Southern town of Oxford, MS.
Hallelujah, my prayers have finally been answered (at least one of them...).
I'm HUGE on juicing and smoothies, I've been juicing off and on since I got to college and my first experience with juicing was actually my Senior year of high school in Austin, TX when the juicing craze was just starting.
It's so hard to find a place that not only offers an amazing selection of smoothies and juices but that isn't outrageous in price as well.
I know we have one place in Oxford, I won't mention the name, but going there is a little ridiculous. I'm sorry but I won't pay almost $10.00 for a juice. I'd rather just make my own at home. The only reason why I don't is juicing is SO time consuming. At least it is for me. I'd rather go to a place where I know I can enjoy the same great juice or smoothie, hassle free, clean free and with great costumer service.
The staff at Juva in Oxford are so nice and really inviting. It's not like the other places here that you feel it's a bother when you walk through the door.
My first experience with JUVA was actually in Columbus, MS and I didn't really get the full first time experience since I went through the drive through. I think if you're a first timer you need to go inside and just take in all the selection and make your choice. If not, ask what juices or smoothies are popular in the area.
My favorite smoothie is GO GREEN and my fruit is raspberry. Who wouldn't want a green tea goodness with a little raspberry? Common sense right? You also can't go wrong with JAM'N JELLY add yogurt. Yumm.
My favorite juice hands down, REBOOT. When I think of a juice I want something really earthy with minimal sugar. Or should I say minimal sugar that I can taste.
If you're in Oxford, Tupelo, Columbus even Starkville check it out! You'll really enjoy it especially if your on a health kick or natural living lifestyle like myself!
