Thirst Juice Co.
There’s a new juicery in town! Thirst Juice Co. opened at 44 School Street in downtown Boston last week, and I was able to stop in and sample some of their juices and smoothies this morning. They were all delicious! I tried the “Bad Monkey,” a rich smoothie with coconut milk, banana, and cacao nibs, the “Melon Ball,” a juice combining cantaloupe, kale, apple, and ginger – which had a great kick! – and “Sweet Leaf,” blending romaine, carrot, pear, and lime. All of the drinks are raw, vegan, and gluten-free.They offer both centrifugally extracted juice, which is made to order, as well as cold-pressed juice, which retains more nutritional content and keeps fresh for 3 days. The shop also offers acai bowls, gluten-free oatmeal, and soups. Plus they stock maple water, and brew coffee from our fave roaster, Barrington Coffee!
The owners of Thirst Juice Co., husband and wife team Heather Stevenson and Chris Roche, have always dreamed of starting a food business. The avid runners love healthy foods, and are passionate about cooking. While they worked as lawyers in New York City, they tested out juice, soup, and smoothie recipes on friends, finally deciding to take the plunge and leave law to open their own juice shop! While New York City has lots of juice chains, the couple has roots in Boston and thought that downtown Boston would be a perfect place for their venture. The recipes Heather and Chris have developed are so good – even though they have only been open for a week there were lots of happy faces at their shop today! Try them out the next time you are downtown and could use a little pick-me-up!
