Summary

Although our cold-pressed juices are delicious on their own, they are also extremely versatile and can be used in all sorts of other recipes. Think: popsicles, smoothies, dressing & even soups! We’ve put together some of our favorite ways to use our juices & shots below. We’d love for you to try some out and tell us what you think!

Popsicles

Want healthy, fruit- and veggie-forward, no-sugar-added popsicles? All of our juices can be used as the base of a popsicle, but our sweeter ones work best. Our personal favorites for popsicles include: Coral (watermelon, strawberry, lime), Lava (watermelon, pineapple, papaya) & Autumn (carrot, orange, lemon).

Turn a cold pressed juice into a popsicle with Thistle's plant based juices!

Simply shake the juice bottle (don't skip this step!) and then pour into popsicle mold. Add a popsicle stick and then freeze until solid.

Note: If you don’t have a popsicle mold, another thing you could do is to freeze the juices in an ice tray until solid, and then process in a blender to make a refreshing slushie!

Smoothies & Slushies

If you want to spice up your Thistle juice and make it extra special, consider turning it into a smoothie. Our favorite combinations include: 

  • Ruby Berry Smoothie: 1 bottle Ruby (beet, cucumber, apple), 1 cup mixed berries, 1/2 cup coconut yogurt
  • Verdance Green Smoothie: 1 bottle Verdance (kale, apple, spinach), 1 cup frozen banana, 2 tbsp hemp seeds, 2 tbsp almond butter, 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • Autumn Orange Creamsicle Smoothie: 1 bottle Autumn (carrot, orange, lemon), 1 cup coconut milk/cream, 1/2 cup frozen mango chunks
What's inside this blender? Thistle's cold pressed juice, mixed berries, and some coconut yogurt.

Alternatively, you can make your own Thistle juice smoothie variation using using one of our juices as a base. Combine your favorite bottle of cold-pressed juice, ice, frozen fruit of choice, yogurt, and/or nut butter and blend until fully combined.

Note: If you froze one of our juices in an ice tray, add the cubes into your smoothie instead of the juice for a thicker smoothie!

Meals

Didn't think that juices could be used in meals? Think again. Consider: 

  • Using Hunter or Verdance in place of vegetable broth in your favorite vegetable soup or green curry
  • Our Golden shot, made with lemon & ginger, is delicious mixed into your favorite sauce or curry dish for an extra pop of flavor!

Dressings & Sauces

For an antioxidant-packed dressing, use our Glow shot to make a turmeric-black pepper-tahini dressing

  • 1 Glow shot (lemon & turmeric)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup smooth tahini
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly cracked black pepper

Whisk together tahini, olive oil, salt and pepper. Whisk in the Glow shot until smooth. Dressing can be made 4 days ahead. Cover and chill. Makes about 1/2 cup of dressing.

Serve with your favorite roasted veggies or drizzle as a sauce over a grain bowl.

Or, consider making a tangy Fuego vinaigrette dijon mustard and olive oil: 

  • 1 Fuego shot (orange, ginger)
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly cracked black pepper

Combine all of the ingredients in a jar with a tight-fitting lid and shake until fully emulsified. Dressing can be made a week ahead of time. Cover and chill, but then bring back to room temperature before serving as the olive oil will solidify. Makes about 1/2 cup of dressing.

Delicious served alongside any salad that with fruit, nuts/seeds, cheese and fresh greens!

For something warm & comforting, mix 1 Golden shot in 1 cup hot water and sip away.

For an added nutritional boost and flavor punch to any drink, add 1 Glow shot into any of our other juices or in a smoothie!

Add additional nutritional value to both your juices and smoothies through pouring Thistle's cold pressed juice shot into them.
