Rajbhog Mango Lassi

Rajbhog Mango Lassi

Right off the bat, I can tell you that this is not Sweet Rose part deux. This is actually drinkable. No, I didn't/couldn't finish the whole thing, but it was actually drinkable. The texture/viscosity/consistency is something to get used to. Think of this:

Go to your local grocery store. While your mom is buying girl stuff and boring vegetables, you take a quarter you found in between the seats of your family's Pontiac 6000 where you spent countless road trips sitting by yourself in "the way-back" watching other families watch you watch them watch you watch them. You check out the vending machines...plastic guns? No. Homies? Funny, and clearly racist, but no. Slime in an egg? Yep-ahh. You put your quarter with all it's french fry grease and dog hair into the slot, turn the crank, and down comes your clear egg with a creamy, pastel, yellow slime. All of a sudden, two punk kids come up to you and say, "Hey, kid. Nice slime. Eat it!" and you, who are no match for two kids wearing leather jackets with the sleeves cut off, open your mouth hole and slurp it down. Just as your finished with the last glob, you mom comes out with some stupid carrots and yells at those kids to go home.

That's what the texture was like, but the taste wasn't too bad. It tastes lightly of mango. Not bad. I won't have it again since each small bottle is 280 calories and it wasn't that much to come back to, but it wasn't bad.

Rajbhog Sweet Rose Lassi

Rajbhog Sweet Rose Lassi

Travel back in time, back to the romantic era. The year is 1785 and you, a lonely soap maker meet a woman you love. You spend day in and day out producing sweet smelling soaps so that others may clean their bodies. Everyone loves your soaps and you do fairly well. People know you for who you are and respect what you do.

So along comes this woman who you begin courting in hopes that one day she will become your wife. She, of course, gets complimentary soap whenever she desires. She never grows tired of the scent and the way that it makes her skin feel. The soothing scents of lavender, roses, and other native flowers fill the air as she bathes herself once a month (not a scumbag thing. They took fewer showers since it was a chore to get hot water and they typically used "dry" shampoo to wash their hair. Leave them alone. They're all dead. I don't know why I mentioned it. Ignore that part. It's in type. I cannot be erased. It is too late.) She, if anything desires more scent. "More!" she beckons from the small one bedroom house as you trot off to work.

One day you go into work, and amongst all the animal fat and flowers and powders, and such, you think that you might try something new. You take the soap and melt it down and pour it into a glass. You frighteningly take a sip and it's pretty terrible, but you don't give up. No. You are not a quitter. You put some sugar in it and use less powder and more milk from the local dairy. After a couple secretive weeks of experimentation you've got it the perfect mix of creamy, sweet, floral drink that you desired.

The next day at the market, you fill some small bottles with this creamy mixture and have people try it. They do not like it. They say to you, "Good sir, we love your soaps for our bodies, but, alas, we do not love your soap for our gullets. I'm sorry." As you bow your head down in shame, your wife walks up to you with a smile on her face. She is so happy to see you. After all, you've spent so much time at the shop experimenting that your wife has nearly gone unnoticed. In hopes that she can cheer you up, as she always does, you give her a taste of your newest creation. She takes a dainty sip and a look comes across her face like no other you've seen before. She gives you a solid, definitive look of disappointment and then walks away. You don't talk to her for weeks until you finally agree that you will no longer produce the drink. You continue to bow your head in shame as yet another venture has gone up in smoke.

Basically, this drink tastes like old people soap.

Odwalla Superfood Original Superfood

Odwalla Superfood Original Superfood

After drinking those Genesis drinks, I was a bit frightened at the potential of this drink. I am not familiar with Odwalla and this was my first go with them. It was very thick and took me a good minute to get it thoroughly mixed up. After my arm was tired and I worked up a good, solid thirst, I took a good drink and it was surprisingly good. It was a good real apple taste, almost like a puree. There are a lot of other flavors there but apple it's the star player.

This would make me want to try other Odwalla drinks.

Rajbhog Pineapple & Mango Lassi

Rajbhog Pineapple & Mango Lassi

Okay, I've had lassi before. It's an Indian smoothie with some yogurt in it. They went a little overboard with the yogurt in this product. It has the consistency of a slightly watered down yogurt with the tiniest bits of fruit in it. It certainly does not taste watered down though. It has a very strong fruit flavor with a yogurty aftertaste.
This is so thick that I can't imagine drinking it with a meal. It would be nice for a light snack though.

Naked Green Machine

Naked Green Machine

The bottle says it all, "Looks weird, tastes amazing." It's made from a whole mess of fruit with the added "boost" of a whole mess of weird vegetables. It's nice to have a "health" drink that tastes great.
It's similar to the Bolthouse Green Goodness, but this just tastes better. It's thick and sweet and yes it "tastes amazing."
Okay I'm done with quotation marks for a while.

Bolthouse Farms Green Goodness

Bolthouse Farms  Green Goodness

I know this stuff looks completely disgusting. It looks like in no possible way could it be good. Well guess what? You should have listened to your mother when she said "Don't judge a book by its cover." This may just be the best Bolthouse drink.
It may contain Spinach, Broccoli, Algae, Artichoke and a variety of other things you wouldn't expect so find in a fruit smoothie, but you don't really notice any of them. The fruit holds the flavor strong and sweet. I can't really pinpoint any of the exact fruit flavors, but it's definitely fruity. It's also pretty thick which is great.
I also like to pretend that it has strong medicinal properties, which can heal any ailment that I have. Try to prove me wrong Mr. Wizard!

Bolthouse Farms Blue Goodness

Bolthouse Farms  Blue Goodness

Blueberries galore! That is what this drink is. It's actually a mixture of a bunch of flavors, but blueberry is on top of that mountain of fruit. It's part of Bolthouse's smoothie line, so it's got a thicker consistency, but not as thick as some of their other smoothies. It's so hard for me not to drink an entire bottle of these once I open them up. They are just so good, not to mention healthy.

Bolthouse Farms C-Boost

Bolthouse Farms  C-Boost

This is my "I feel like I'm about to die, I really need to get better" go-to drink. I mean this small bottle has 2400% of the recommended daily intake of Vitamin C. There is also a butt load of other vitamins and minerals as well. I know it's not really the cure all I pretend it to be, but I'll let myself continue to believe it. I was shocked to see that orange juice was not one of the ingredients. It's mostly a blend of acerola cherries, apple juice and mango puree. There are also some camu camu fruit and maitake mushrooms mixed in for good measure. On top of all the health benefits of the drink, it tastes spectacular. It has a nice thickness and it's just refreshing.

Genesis Organic Smoothie Superfood

Genesis Organic Smoothie Superfood

When I first took a sip of this, I thought it was juice. Only after tasting the chunks of fruit in it did I realize that it said smoothie on the label. I'm not a big fan of drinks with pulp and chunks, and this was REALLY chunky. That aside, I was hoping this would taste a lot more like other green juices I've had. Once again, I should have looked at the label instead of the color of the drink. As you can see, there is a giant banana on the label and this drink has a very strong banana flavor. The only ingredients in this are apples, bananas, and spirulina. I wasn't crazy about it, but that's because I generally don't like banana flavored drinks. Other than that, it was good and probably super good for you.

Chadwick Bay Enhanced Smoothie Strawberry Sensation

Chadwick Bay Enhanced Smoothie Strawberry Sensation

For a bottled smoothie this is pretty awesome. I was weirded out that it wasn't refrigerated when we got it, but then I saw that it was dairy free, and all was good in the kingdom of smoothies. It tastes like pureed strawberries with a little bit of banana mixed in. I'm not a fan at all of bananas, but it's so slight in this, it just gives a nice complementing flavor. It's also fairly inexpensive in stores compared to other smoothies.
