Project Juice – Hillcrest


Project Juice can be found in Hillcrest within the same shopping center as Trader Joe’s.


The interior is nice and green, which is an immediate reminder that you that you’re eating and drinking healthy!


They specialize in cold-pressed drinks, superfood bowls, and salads.



They have numerous drinks and salads ready to go, or you can customize your order specific to your liking.


This is the Strawberry Maca “Mylkshake” which was on special.


This was by far our favorite of the day!  It was made with their house-made almond mylk, strawberry, date, vanilla, maca, coconut meat, & cashew.

Little K absolutely loved his drink.  It was the perfect balance of sweetness from both the almond milk and dates.  The hint of vanilla, coconut, and strawberry really added some wonderful layers.

The kids loved this one so much that Uncle Darren kindly offered up his excess to them (which they quickly downed!).


Next up was their Watermelon Berry cold-pressed drink.  This was nice and refreshing, though bit more tart.



Our next sampling was the Jalagreeno.  As you might guess, there was a little spice to this one from the jalapenos that are added to this unique concoction.  I can’t say that I was a huge fan, but our hostess told us it’s a hit 0r miss drink typically.  Either you love it, or hate it.  🙂


Finally, they offered us a small sampling of some of their salads and their gluten-free avocado toast.

The toast was fantastic (GF toast, avocado, green onions, lime juice, micro sprouts, & pink salt).

How can you go wrong with fresh avocados??


Here are some of the salads packaged as you would buy them from the store.

The kelp noodles were light and had a nice flavor to them.  I’d order it again.

Overall, we had a very nice sampling of their signature summer specials.

All of their items are super fresh and well prepared.  The store was super clean and I’d definitely be a regular if I lived in the area.

*Please note we were invited to sample their specials and no further compensation was received.  Our opinion remains our own.
