Boston Magazine Features Mother Juice!

Image credit:

A few weeks ago we worked with Boston Magazine to show them just what we do here at Mother Juice, and to bring them a boatload of yummy juices to photograph!  Fast forward to this month's issue of Boston Magazine and there we are!  We love the infographic of all of our favorite ingredients tumbling into our sweet mason jars.  We can't wait to get this juice on the road!

Check out our lovely juices and hints about our upcoming menu here.

Mother Juice featured in the Boston Globe!

The Boston Globe Sunday insert had a little something special in it this past weekend... a recipe exclusively from Mother Juice!  We were so excited to see our name in print.  It was Ellen's grandmother that tipped us off  :)

Here's the recipe for you!  Now let's start thinking spring.

The Tropical Rainforest
Makes one 16-ounce serving
  • Juice of one orange
  • Juice from ½ a lemon
  • 1 banana
  • 1 mango
  •  cup vegan coconut ice cream or yogurt
  • 3 leaves of green, curly kale, de-stemmed
  • 2 generous handfuls of spinach

Blend all ingredients together well. For added nutrition, throw in a spoonful of chia seeds or ground flax seeds.

xoxo, Mother Juice

tiny photo studio - Exclusive Photo Shoot!

Ever wonder how we have so many stunning, bright, happy photos for our blog?  Well here's the story behind our awesome photo shoot with Kim of tiny photo studio over the summer!

When our Kickstarter got kickstarted in July, we were hopeful that people would connect with our idea (which we think is pretty awesome, but hey).  Five minutes after our first post on Facebook, our co-worker Kate called to say she thought it was pretty awesome too.  Sweet!

Then she had an idea and hooked us up.  Kate's friend from college, Kim, photographer, sculptor and foodie extraordinaire, would probably love this idea.  And would probably barter a super fun photo session for juice and treats.  And she was right.

^ this is Kim.  Hi Kim.

Fast forward to mid-July and Claire, Ellen and Kate met up with Kim at Fresh Pond with fresh juice by the armful, and a picnic blanket to boot.  Many silly happy photos were taken!  And then many treats were eaten (yum).  And thanks to Kim we have great memories of a carefree day at the start of our juice journey.

Three cheers for Kim!

All About Mother Juice

Hi!  We're Claire and Ellen!   Co-founders of Mother Juice, Boston's first juice truck!
We love juice.

Who Are We? Mother Juice is a start-up juice truck based in Boston, MA. We are Massachusetts grown and proud of it. We use local, seasonal, and organic produce to make fresh juices, smoothies, and other tasty treats. Our menu is a work in progress that continually evolves to feature the most healthful and flavorful ingredients of the day. We offer a nutritious and delicious addition to the city’s burgeoning food truck community, connecting Bostonians to their neighborhood farmers with every juice we make.

Garden to Glass. At Mother Juice, the menu changes weekly. We follow five steps to create food that reflects what is best for our bodies and the environment. It's the freshest of the fresh and it's delicious.

Step 1. Buy fruits, vegetables, and herbs from 
Massachusetts organic farms.
Step 2. Create an interesting and innovative menu that
 features the week’s harvest and spotlights the
 farms that partner with us.    
Step 3. Supplement each week’s local bounty with organic 
produce that is not native to Massachusetts (i.e., citrus). 
Step 4. Make and sell fresh juices and smoothies at Boston area 
food truck locations, festivals, and farmer’s markets. 
We will use the Norwalk Hydraulic Press Juicer 
-- the Rolls Royce of juicers -- which extracts more juice
 from fruits and vegetables than any other juicer on the market.
Step 5. Use the pulp leftover from juices to make and 
sell fresh baked goods, fruit leathers, 
fresh fruit sorbets, and popsicles.

Why We Heart Boston. Boston is the perfect home for Mother Juice. We take pride in our community and recognize that Bostonians value businesses that fuel the city’s economy by using local inputs. Massachusetts has more than 8,000 farms, nearly all of which are small and family-owned and production of organic fruits and vegetables has more than doubled in the past decade.
Whether it is on their bikes or on foot, Bostonians are health conscious city dwellers who like to get outside and move. With people on the streets and on the go, the food truck community has gained incredible support from community members and local government, expanding from only a handful of trucks a couple of years ago to approximately 20 today. That said, Boston’s food truck industry is still small compared to those in other innovative cities and it is well-suited to add a healthy, local, and vegetarian truck to its fleet.

Let's get juicing!
