As far as raw juice and smoothie products go, Project Juice’s “Mint Chip Shake” is definitely one of the more creative and memorable formulations that we’ve sampled. To cut right to the chase, this product does indeed taste like something that’s reminiscent of a shake made with mint chocolate chip ice cream. However, ice cream is, of course, not one of the ingredients in this product. Instead, it’s made with slightly (!) healthier ingredients, including banana, spinach, mint, cacao nibs, raw almonds, dates, sea salt, vanilla bean and purified water. The resulting mix has a gritty consistency (presumably from the nuts), but the flavor is spot on. And as we mentioned, it’s a flavor that will be hard to forget. Visually, we really like the look of the product. It has a hipsterish, artisanal design, which seems perfect for what this product is. Plus, we like the 14.75 oz. ce plastic bottle and the lighter weight plastic that the company has chosen. Overall, an extremely enjoyable and polished product.
