Boots Carrot, Parsnip and Mango Juice Review

Fruit and veg blends are increasingly on trend thanks to the Nutribullet. I like to whip up moy own veg and fruit smoothies in my Nutribullet but when you're out and above, it's great to have some ready made options out there as a healthier alternative to soft drinks and for a quick hit of vitamins.

I picked up this carrot, mango and parsnip blend from Boots. It's a nice small 250ml bottle, which is perfect for me as this is enough to get a hit of veg and fruit without consuming a huge amount (albeit natural) sugar in one go. This drink is made from carrot, parsnip, appl juice, mango, orange juice and some lemon juice and has a very reasonable sugar content of 4.8g per 100ml - about the same as milk. It also counts as one portion of fruit and veg.

Savse is my go to out and about fruit and veg smoothie of choice for its crisp, clean and refreshing taste. This wasn't as good. It certainly wasn't disgusting or unpalatable but not as well matched as a Savse smoothie. The parsnip in particular leant a slight earthiness, which meant it wasn't as refreshing. The texture was also more watery and juice like compared to Savse.

I liked this drink to a certain extent and would probably buy again if I wanted a fruit and veg hit on the go but it's not delicious by any means and the flavour combo just doesn't quite work.
