Juice Warrior // A must in Edinburgh


I was so happy to see they’d added even more smoothies to their menu (to Jamie’s dismay, I’m incredibly indecisive and this did not help). 

 It was tropical over in Edinburgh. I was so happy I dared to wear shorts (you can never be sure about the weather here in Scotland). I did bring a pair of jeans just in case haha.

Originally we were meant to go to the Kelpies in falkirk on Sunday but the trains were cancelled so that plan is once again postponed to the next time we’re both free. It might be a while haha. We’ll get there eventually. So instead I said I’d love to go to Dean Village in Edinburgh. I’ve seen it popping up on Instagram here and there but had no idea where in Edinburgh it was. It felt we’ve been missing out on this secret Fairy Tale-like place.

We eventually got on the train and started our journey towards the east. I knew from the moment we decided to go to Edinburgh we had to go to Juice Warrior. I didn’t care we hadn’t had lunch yet. I just needed one of their smoothies. I so rarely make the journey so when I do, this is a place I have to go. They had even more smoothies to choose from than the last time I’d gone!

I struggled loads to choose  (if I could I would have one of each) but ended up going for Eternal Youth in the end. It had banana, raspberries, blueberries, pumpkin seeds, acai, cacao and beetroot in it. It was very chocolatey with a hint of berry. A bit like my favourite ice cream and sorbet combo, chocolate and raspberry. Very tasty.

I really wish Juice Warrior would open up in Glasgow. I think it’s the best place for a healthy treat in Scotland and I really think they’d do incredible over here. I’m thinking of starting a petition to get them to open up a unit here in the west, who’s with me? Jokes aside, they seriously should just come over. With all the new healthy businesses opening up they should join in on the fun!

I need to go back to Edinburgh soon just for another one of their smoothies. I’d love to try their smoothie bowls as well. A bit tricky to eat on the go though! Jamie had one of their coldpressed juices and he loved it. I think it was called Alchemy.

We then went on a mission to find lunch and that was way easier said than done. I’ll leave that for a separate post!
