Operating out of a sleek shack in Coconut Point in Estero, Juice Society Juicery squeezes 100 percent organic, cold-press juices daily without added water, sugar or preservatives. I couldn’t resist buying two flavors in the 16-ounce glass bottles after seeing witty names, like the kale- and green apple-based Elvis Parsley.
The one I immediately sipped, Under the Sea, has lesser-known togarashi—the zesty, seven-spice Japanese seasoning credited for relieving muscle aches, facilitating digestion and clearing congestion. Co-owners Kallie and Matt Isadore like to flip the script on commonly misconceived superfoods and veggies, proving that healthy can be delicious. Their most popular flavor, Heart Beets, aids digestive and heart health and is refreshing with its lime and pineapple pairing.
Juice recipes take as long as seven months to perfect. “Juicing is such an art,” Kallie says, adding that flavors vary by the day and season. The couple uses a heatless hydraulic press to maximize the nutrients and liquid pulled from the fruits and vegetables, most of which are locally sourced.
This spring, the duo, who also make smoothies and açaí bowls, moves from their humble hut into a 1,800-square-foot space at the shopping center—all the better for you to stock up.
