Made with a blend of kale, romaine, dandelion greens, parsley, celery, cucumber, apple, lemon, and flax oil, this variety of Vibrant Earth Juices might sound like it's going to be overwhelming. Fortunately, they've formulated it in such a way (maybe through the addition of water?) that the flavors of the greens and celery take center stage, but aren't too potent. The use of lemon and apple definitely help, with the acid of the lemon and the sweetness of the apple giving the product some balance and a nice finish. We don't taste the flax oil, which is fine, but it should add some omega content (although how much is not disclosed) to the drink. Comparing this with other cleanse and raw juice products that we've sampled, we think the thin body of this product is somewhat of an impediment for this brand. Cutting the water, even if it means moving to a smaller package size, is something that we'd like to see. In addition, the visual aspect of this product, which feels very much like a handmade product, could stand to be improved. We're not suggesting that they should make this look like a bottle of mass produced juice, but having a more vibrant looking label would be in line with the brand name. Overall, a great start, but we'd like to see it refined a little further.
