Ayomo opened a kiosk in QV that houses a variety of healthy cold pressed juices and other healthy bits and pieces. It’s a cute little grassy area with park benches where you can enjoy some juice and some healthiness. Their cold pressed juices are ‘fruit to bottle and nothing in between’ as per their motto, which means you can be assured that all the juices are full of fruit, vegetables and healthy goodness. No guilt here.
They have a range of different juices and if you’re keen to do a little bit of spring cleaning for your body, they have some juice cleanse packs in a one day, three day or five day pack. It’s spring people! Now is the time.
The ‘garden green’ is not one of those green juices where you want to barf each time you take a sip. This is a friendly green juice and has a sweetness to it. It had cucumber, kale, celery, spinach and apple. All the good green stuff but not bitter at all.
We tried the ‘Summer lovin’ which was delicious. This was one of my faves. It had apple, pineapple, lemon and mint. It was light and refreshing and would definitely be a popular one for summer, ah the name now makes a lot of sense.
The ‘doctor c’ was tasty, I thought it would just taste like orange because of the bright orange colour but it was light and had a fusion of flavours. It had orange, carrot, lemon, grapefruit and mint.
The ‘lady luck’ juice had a really alluring flavour. It had a lot of depth and excitement about it. It was beetroot, watermelon, orange and carrot. I really liked this one.
There was eggplant dip with pita chips. The Ayomo stores do have some savoury items like this pita and dip combo. All things healthy of course.
I hadn’t tried kale chips before and these ones were surprisingly tasty. They had heaps of flavour and were not super bitter as I had imagined. They were so delicate and crunchy, a good alternative for potato chips. They also had apple chips, which were crisp and sprinkled with cinnamon. They were a nice crunchy sweet snack.
I’m a big fan of their homemade granola. It had a mixture of lots of things delicious. Oats, nuts, cranberries, coconut, cinnamon etc. Yum. It was crunchy which I like and I especially liked the buckwheat clusters through the mix. It went perfectly with the almond mylk, which had a lovely smooth creamy flavour The almond mylk had vanilla bean, filtered h20, dates, cinnamon, nutmeg, sea salt, almonds. Delish.
The banana and strawberry chia pudding, which was tasty. Fresh fruit, creamy gooey chia and crunchy buckinis on top. Lots of texture and delicious too.
Om noms! In hindsight I should have been in the O for Olive Sundays instead of the M for Mel. Ah wells.
Their South Melbourne store also has raw shakes, super bowls (like acai or peanut butter), frozen yoghurt and frozen cold pressed juice. Frozen cold press juice?! Yes its a new thing and would sort be like a fruity sorbet maybe. Can’t wait to try it.
Ayomo juices are oh so popular because they are healthy but more importantly they are delicious. Also its convenient and exactly what I feel like on a warm spring day. Yay to spring! Bring on the sunshine and bring on the healthy cold pressed juices.
I heart Ayomo!
