Bolthouse Farms Juice Review


My review of Bolthouse Farms Juice as far as health benefits and drinking it as a healthy alternative to other juices.

Bolthouse Farm drinks have become a staple in our kitchen for the past few years.  My husband and I always keep a variety in our refrigerator at all times.  They have a wide array of grab and go breakfast smoothies, juices, and protein drinks that are packed with nutrients, are all-natural, have no added sugar, and are great to grab as breakfast or a snack when you are short on time!  Each beverage is packed with flavor and nutrition.  For instance, the Orange + Carrot juice offers 300% more Vitamin A than orange juice alone. The breakfast smoothies each contain 10-grams of protein, 2.5 grams of fiber, and 15 percent of the required daily value of calcium!

I’m a HUGE fan of their juice, which means a lot coming from me since I’m one of those people that normally dislikes food/drinks that are healthy for me. I’ve tried just about all of the flavors of Bolthouse Farms and each is unique and flavorful in it’s own way.  The C-Boost smoothie is one that we consistently buy and a personal favorite of mine.  I not only love it for it’s taste, but it is especially nice when we feel a sickness coming on and stop it in it’s tracks by pumping up our immune systems.  It is really soothing on a sore throat.  An 8-ounce serving of this fruit smoothie provides 1200 percent of your recommended daily vitamin C!  It’s a sweet blend of mango, red apples, and cacerola cherries that are all rich in vitamin C and antioxidants.

C Boost Bolthouse Smoothie

I’d have to say my all-time favorite is the Green Goodness fruit smoothie.  I have to admit that the unappetizing shade of green made me think twice about this one, but it’s actually remarkably good!  This is a case of “don’t judge a book by it’s cover” as it has a face only a mother could love 🙂 This is a blend of 20 different ingredients including apple, pineapple, banana, broccoli, mango, kiwi and spinach which give it an abundance of Vitamins A, C, B6 and B12.  To me, it is very fruity in taste and the main flavor I pick up on is apple.

Green Goodness Bolthouse Smoothie

Recently, Bolthouse Farms was nice enough to send me two samples of their smaller-sized juices to try out and review: their 100% carrot juice and there Berry Boost smoothie. (Normally my husband I buy the larger size bottles).

Carrot Juice Bolthouse Farms Review

I definitely liked the carrot juice.  It has a nice, smooth texture and a sweet, fresh flavor.  If you’re not used to pure vegetable juice, you might not be ready for something like this.  It was, however, a bit sweeter tasting than I expected it to be.  Each bottle contains the juice of 8 carrots, and each serving (there are 2 servings in a bottle ) contain 3 3/4 servings of veggies.  This juice is a great way to adds some vegetables to your daily diet, add a boost to your breakfast, or enjoy it when you are hungry for a snack.  The ingredients were as they should be- one ingredient – 100% carrot juice and no added sugars.  It’s always nice to know what I am getting when drinking a juice like this and can feel good about it having no preservatives and no artificial flavor.  Carrot juice is an excellent source of pro-vitamin A, vitamins C, D, E, K, B1 and B6.

Berry Boost Bolthouse Farms Review

Berry Boost has five different berries with plenty of Vitamins A, C and E.  This juice is very healthy and extremely flavorful.  It combines a sweet and fruity taste with an almost bitter berry,  but the flavors are combined perfectly so it’s not too sweet nor too bitter.  It is very smooth and naturally sweetened…when you are drinking it you don’t even realize how healthy it is.  This smoothie is infused with a lot of antioxidants which are great for you.  If you like berries, you will love this flavor!

These drinks can be a bit pricey to have regularly, but they do go on sale once in a while so we always stock up when they do.  It might not be a replacement for all the nutrients you would get with juicing but they do give you decent nutrients. Compared to the price of a juicer and how many times I would really use it if I get one, I guess $3.99 isn’t bad for all the good stuff that is packed into these bottles of juice with out the cleaning up of a juicer/buying of all the fruits and veggies.

Disclaimer:  I received a complementary samples of Bolthouse Farms Berry Boost and Carrot Juice, but was not paid to write this review and all opinions are 100% my own.

    Great review! I like their juices too, but haven’t tried the carrot or berry. I think I would actually love the carrot!

    • April 15, 2013 at 11:33 AM #

      Yeah, I actually did like the carrot surprisingly. I think it’s the healthiest, too!

    Are these a local brand?I have not seen or heard of them in my area. Nor the Perry ice cream you frequently mention.

    • April 15, 2013 at 11:33 AM #

      Perry’s is somewhat local….Ohio, Pennsylvania and NY. But Bolthouse is a national brand…they are actually out of California 🙂

    I always admire those pretty bottles, but I’ve never actually tried one!

    • April 15, 2013 at 11:34 AM #

      They are pretty bottles, aren’t they? 🙂 Thanks, Claire!

  4. April 15, 2013 at 4:40 PM #

    I haven’t seen these here yet, we usually lag behind a bit. I’ll have to watch for them 🙂

    • April 15, 2013 at 5:00 PM #

      Yeah be on the lookout!

    I love Bolthouse Farms! My favorite is Green Goodness. Nice review, by the way, I can’t wait to try the others.

    • April 15, 2013 at 9:39 PM #

      That’s my favorite, too 🙂 Thanks Ruby!

      I agree- they are not cheap, but so good!

    This was such a wonderful review, thank you!

    I’m a bit of an anomaly in my sport, I’m a heavyweight (6’5″ 292lb) competitive strongman, and in my sport my being a vegetarian has been a hot topic amongst the nay sayers to say the least.

    I was injured pretty bad this past weekend pulling a fire truck in Georgia (harness broke and drove me to the ground breaking a piece of bone off my left elbow). ANYWAYS, since I’m laid up the next few weeks I decided to do a modified juice fast, adding in raw vegetables and hemp proteins and spirulina. The Bolthouse brand will be a staple in this fast because, as you spoke of earlier, the nutrients are packed in each bottle and the flavored are delightful, literally excited me unscrewing the cap before drinking a new flavor!!

    I add chia seeds to my Bolthouse juices, so delicious!

    I have a Facebook page called The Vegetarian Strongman if you ever want to chime in and say hello, perhaps throw some more reviews of new flavors my way so I can be sure to give them a shot myself 🙂

    well I can’t comment on as many as some do but I can on the Mango Lemonade. I tried several “boats” and well I enjoyed them the ML hit the right note for me. I found it tastey ,refreshing , and without a heavy after taste . also unlike some I’ve tried in the past , there was no notisable acidity . I can drink it and have no sour stomach. sooo very delicious .

    1st off love your name, because that’s my daughters name lol. 2nd I just purchased the c-boost and great goodness today. I eat clementines to get that vitamin c (especially since I need something with vitamin c prior to taking my iron pills) but the market doesn’t always have them. So I was browsing today picked up the carrot one 1st and read how the ingredients were simple, just carrot juice.So I said hmm let me see if their other products ingredients are just as. Well they dont contain any harmful concoctions that I noted. And its a non gmo product a +. The great goodness when I saw spinach I said I wonder how its gonna taste, and it taste like fruit.I will be buying these from now on, I hope they dont switch up their ingredients ever.Im a water person so besides that I will drink these 🙂 bon appetite

    Why has Bolthouse farms removed the non gmo lableing from their green goodness juice?

    • February 12, 2014 at 12:42 PM #

      Good question! I did not know about this…

        I just noticed it 2 days ago myself. It has to be a recent change. It is probably related to the fact that its parent company (Campbell’s) is a supporter of anti GMO lableing legislation. I am disappointed and will no longer support Bolthouse Farms as a consumer. This is another example of corporate bullying I am sure!

          oh boy!!! This is all news to me!

    Let’s not forget that the label also says that it contains “natural flavors”. This could be any number of things.

      I’ve drank it for years and when the GMO labeling went so did my confidence in it. We stopped buying it a few months ago when I first noticed it. We juice now or look for Non GMO friendly brands. So disappointed.

    Does anyone notice that the c boost’s consistency has changed? It use to be a thick smoothie and now its very runny. I just bought some and I thought it was bad, so I went to a different supermarket and it’s the same thing. Now, I noticed that they switched the APPLE to a PEAR now and I’m wondering if its just me noticing changes?

    • June 1, 2014 at 12:08 AM #

      Oh no! I haven’t had it in the last few weeks. I hope they didn’t change it permanently!

    My 13 year old had a severe allergic reaction 30 minutes after consuming part of a Bolthouse Farms smoothie (his second time consuming, first time was day before and no reaction…sensitized by the 2nd dose, the doctor said). No time for a hospital. 8 teaspoons of Benadryl later the hives from his scalp to his feet, his purplish throat area, red trunk, arms and blistered legs, swollen head and eyes along with the chills and nausea receded. Marks still visible on him the next day… and after I came out of survival mode…reality became clear. I returned the dozen or so bottles to grocery store and they suggested an incident report be completed. The store was great and the grocery chain’s corporate service called us the very next morning. They stated Bolthouse would also be calling us. It has been 12 days, no word from Bolthouse. Two docs said do not trust any ingredient labels. We also learned of FDA loopholes. I just want a bean with a string in it again and to not raise a child in a world where an Epi-Pen is a standard item all families have to carry when they eat since they cannot avoid dangers due to legally hidden GMO, processed allergens. Or as in the words if my 13 year old, “oh you mean that evil mutant smoothie.”

    I have to juice because I have a hernia and allergies but this thread started off positive and then you always have people complaining. PLease do not tell me you eat 100%. I think if you add some fresh veggies and need some extra healthier version of juice — use bolthouse. That is all I will say.

    Hello – your praise of Bolthouse products will likely change once you discover that this insidious company has been completely removing vitamin C from its berry juices. The company claims to put 128 berries in one bottle, yet the label reads “Vitamin C 0%.” Why’s that!
