Daily Greens Vitality is a cold-pressed blend of kale, jalapeño, pineapple, cucumber, cilantro, lime and Himalayan pink salt. It definitely skews towards the “not so sweet” end of the spectrum of green juices. At this stage of the cold-pressed juice category, seems like a smart place to be — at least for green juice. In terms of flavor, the first things that we taste are the kale, celery, cilantro, and a little bit of heat from the jalapeno. While you can taste the pineapple, we honestly wish that there was just a tiny bit more of it as this would help balance out the taste (the product has only 18 g of sugar per bottle, so there's probably room for a little more). Lastly, there's the Himalayan sea salt, which gives the product its slightly salty finish and helps cut the vegetable flavor just a little bit. All in all, it's a nice tasting drink, and we really do appreciate the layers of flavor that the company has managed to create. On the packaging front, the product uses a 16 oz. round plastic bottle. It's the same one that is quickly becoming synonymous with high pressure processed juices. As far as the branding goes, the name Daily Greens is a good description of what the product is all about. However, it feels a little bit lacking in the personality department, despite the use of the word Vitality along the bottom. We only point this out in that we fear that a product like this could quickly become commoditized against more strongly branded competition. Overall, we're definitely fans what the company put inside the bottle, but we feel as though the opportunity for this product might be a little bit bigger if the branding were just a little more appealing.
