I was a bit reluctant to try out Juice Works’ newest addition to a menu of handcrafted delicious fresh juices and smoothies that feature Spinach as the main highlight. I know it is packed with lots of nutrition but hmm…
This dark, leafy vegetable Spinacia oleracea is an incredible source of phyto-nutrients with a host of health qualities and disease prevention properties. With its crisp, tender dark green leaves, spinach is a recognised, nutrient-dense superfood that packs a punch. It is a storehouse rich with chlorophyll and anti-oxidants including lutein, zea-xanthine and beta carotene as well as Vitamins A and C. All of these compounds act as a barrier against free radicals to help slow down the oxidation and aging process, as well as provide support for healthy eyes and skin.
Spinach is very low in calories yet they are a rich source of soluble dietary fibre. Approximately 100 grammes of leaves provide some 25% of your daily intake of iron, a crucial trace mineral that aids the human body in red blood cell production. Its leaves also contain a good amount of minerals like potassium, manganese, magnesium, copper and zinc.
After some ‘encouragement’ from mum (she loves it), I took a sip, and surprisingly, the taste quite good and refreshing despite the green color that didn’t appeal to me at first sight.

“Juice Works has always been recognised as the ultimate in freshness when it comes to juices and smoothies. So we decided to introduce more superfoods into our menu with Spinach Surprise, as this humble vegetable is truly a turbo-charged green,” explained Juice Works Malaysia co-founder Jason Choy.
“Yet, despite being a storehouse of health benefits, many of us do not consume enough spinach largely due to our busy and hectic lifestyles. We seldom eat spinach raw although cooking destroys much of its health properties. With Spinach Surprise, you get to reap the benefits of this amazing green vegetable in a hassle-free and very delicious drink. Parents, are very surprised at how delicious it is, so much so that their kids happily finish the drink on their own. Green has never been so amazing than when it’s consumed!” continued Jason.
Spinach Surprise is prepared fresh to order, and is served across all 25 Juice Works Malaysia kiosks in major malls and offices in 4 states, from 1 March till 31 May 2016. I will grab mine few more rounds too before the promotion period ends soon.
