London has quickly caught onto cold-pressed movement, the healthier option to blending and juicing. The pressing action of cold-pressed juices is what makes them different, producing the most nutritious product possible. It doesn’t oxidise the fruit and vegetables and also ensures the nutrients and enzymes aren’t removed int the process. When blending, on the other hand, the fruits and vegetables are being cut and ground and this can remove some of the goodness.

“Cold-pressing”, says founder of Canyon Juicery Amy Terry, “leaves us with the most nutritious product possible…. Other common methods use fast-spinning blades which generate heat. Hot blades can break down and burn-out important nutrients which are also left behind in the pulp.”


At Canyon Juicery, each juice contains the living nutrients of two kilos of raw, organic fruits and vegetables. From the Good Green to the Coco Green and Root Cure, there’s a plethora of combinations and colours. Try one of their ready-made cleanses.

A recent opening is The Juice Well (@@TheJuiceWellLDN) on Peter Street, Soho. Beatty, the store manager, suggested trying The Daddy, made with almond milk, banana, blueberry, chia seeds, coconut oil and dates. Absolutely delicious! “We actually use a machine that spins at 79rpms,” he explained, “which is slow cold pressed, giving the juice a much soakier flavour.”

From the Boss, which contains banana, coconut water, avocado, protein powder, cocoa powder and coconut meat, to Choc Mint and Gym Freak, the smoothies at Roots and Bulbs are deliciously unique. Find Roots and Bulbs on Thayer Street in Marylebone.
