The gourmet cupcake trend has been skyrocketing. I’ve seen so many $5 cupcake stores across the DMV area ( including Georgetown Cupcakes) and this is but one gourmet food trend. The latest gourmet food trend that has slowly but rigorously hitting the area is the gourmet juice trend.
Healthy Juices from exotic lands–like West Africa–have been appearing in private, public and social parties. Unbeknownst to many, Moriba has an insurmountable blend of juices that are not only trendy but good for your health.
Moriba’s Exotic Juices
1.) Ginger Juice: If you live in the D.C area, you may notice that most of its’ denizens aptly look for ginger-related products. Ginger is not only a trend, but it’s good for your health too. Ginger juice is proven to treat nausea, treat arthritis, and boost your immune system. If you want to fight of a nasty cold or cough, drink plenty of Moriba’s ginger juice.
2.) Lychee Juice: Lychee’s are addictive fruits. They are also popular in fusion Asian restaurants around the district! Restaurants like Ping Pong ( in Chinatown) have special lychee cocktails, and juices for juice lovers. You may not know this but if you want to spruce up intimacy in your love life, lychees, especially the juice, serve as a great aphrodisiac. Lest not forget, the benefits of lychee juice are boundless. Lychee is rich in: Vitamin C, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6 and Potassium. It can also help ward off your chances of getting certain cancers and heart diseases too.
3.) Hibiscus Juice: Have your ever drank sorrel before? If you have or are an ardent fan of hibiscus tea than Moriba’s hibiscus juice can easily quench your thirst. It has a tart cranberry yet citrus-y taste that’s tantalizing, addictive and nom-worthy. Aside from the juice being super delicious, it’s also packed with health benefits too.Hibiscus juice alleviates fevers, hot flashes, dandruff and acne problems. It’s also an easy fix for getting your daily Vitamin C and antioxidants in.
4.) Tamarind Juice: I’m used to having tamarind in Indian, other ethnic foods. As of recent, I learned it can also be made into a delicious juice. Of course, it just makes it easier to enjoy tamarind’s health benefits. It can alleviate gastric problems, lower cholesterol, promote a healthy heart, treat a sore throat, fight cancer, purify blood and heal inflamed skin. So much goodness is packed into one juice bottle. Who knew?
5.) Baobab Juice: Baobab has been a popular treat of Senegal for hundreds, if not, thousands of years. As of recent, it’s been introduced into the European Gourmet food industry. This underutilized fruit has sparked a health food trade across the continent and it’s slowly making its trip to the U.S.A thanks to Faso Foods. Baobab juice is jam packed with antioxidants, vitamin C, B1,B2 and may have more calcium than a class of milk. In fact, there are theories that underscore that Baobab could also have three times more vitamin C as oranges. Try this juice out and see for yourself. Be the first in the U.S to participate in Europe ( or even Senegal’s) biggest health craze.
6.)Soursop Juice: Soursop is a dark green,spikey fruit with a fleshy white interior. This fruit, native to sub saharan parts of Africa and tropical regions of Asia and South America, was often enjoyed as a dessert or to treat minor ailments. Now, Soursop juice, is opening doors in the U.S. This juice contains a rich source of: Vitamin C, B1, B12, Calcium, Iron, healthy fats, protein, and healthy carbohydrates.
7.)Mango Juice: I grew up eating mangos and drinking its juice. Did you know, that if you cut up mango slices, toss it in vanilla ice cream and pour some of Moriba’s mango juice in, you just created a unique treat! This is just a Faso Food secret I wanted to share with you guys. It’s easy to make and easy to eat. If you are looking for a good source of Vitamin A, C and want to ward off cancer, than drink some mango juice. It’s indigenous to India, and has been a popular treat all around the world.
8.)Papaya Juice: Other than the fact that it’s jam packed with: Vitamin B, C, Carotene, Folate, Potassium, Magnesium, Papain and Panthotenic Acid, it’s a wonderful way to aid digestion, serve as an anti-inflammatory, protect against heart disease and fight against intestinal parasites.
9.) Golden Apple Juice: In a nutshell, this drink is good for your heart health, help with digestive health, and packs a wallop of fiber. If you suffer from allergies, golden apples can help your body fight against allergens.
10.) Red Banana Juice: Red bananas are a rare treat indeed. If you are bored with a regular old banana, try this juice. It has the flesh of a yellow banana but has more of a raspberry-banana taste. The benefits of red banana juice are limitless. If you are on a diet, it’s low in calorie, high in fiber, full of potassium, high in vitamin B6, and rich in vitamin C.
Juice Party Instructions
For starters, send invites via Facebook, e-mail or phone call. Parties aren’t parties if it’s just one person drinking all of these delectable drinks. Decorate your home anyway you see fit. In the middle of your table, have prepared fruit like: Mangoes, lychees, pineapples, kiwis, strawberries, etc.
Gourmet Juice parties compliment different fruits since you can evince unique tastes based on drink pairings. If you have guests with a more savory than sweet palate, make sure you have a few canisters of Nutfield’s Macadamia nuts. These salty treats can entice anyone.
Have your Moriba Juice bottles arranged based on sweet to sweetest. Also make sure you have a cold jug of water on hand, as a way to cleanse your palate in between tastes. It’s cost effective, and environmentally conscientious, if you use small paper cups for each tasting. It reduces the mess and prolongs more samplings.
It’s always fun to have everyone dressed up and to also pair juices with scrumptious treats, like fruits, Nutfield’s macadamia nuts, or even Jamaican beef patties. Of course, your imagination can spur more than this humble article pertaining to food pairing but I am sure you get the basic idea.
