Heading West

Sexy Juice is consolidating and heading West!    

In 2014, we started an on-line delivery service.  We started with very humble beginnings in our home kitchen and are forever grateful for our first guests that gave us great feedback and love.  During this year we received so much love that we were able to open our production facility in Abbotsford.  This location has served us well!

In 2015 we we grew and opened our West 6th location.  This location allowed us to expand our menu items, make successes (and failures) with food and smoothie menu options and let us continue to hone in on our craft.  This location was a little hidden gem and we have such amazing regulars here.  We will be closing this location on July 13, 2016.  Thank you to all of our customers here that became friends.  

We have again made another decision to grow once more and open a flagship cafe and retail outlet for Sexy Juice in Vancouver and as a result we are moving our production facility to also be home in Vancouver.  Having our production, retail outlet and cafe in one location allows us to ensure that our level of quality control is met with every drink, salad, sandwich and protein ball made.  

Our new location address will be located at 2839 West Broadway, Vancouver.  As a result of the move, our production will be closed from June 29, reopening on July 18.  If you are trying put make a purchase within this date range, you will not be able to add anything to your cart.  We will re-open the shop on July 17 for purchases.  We are sorry for any disappointment this may have caused and thank you for your patience.  We will still be offering delivery from Vancouver to Abbotsford and likely expanding to Chilliwack.  So please do not hesitate to make an order, and we can have that out to you as early as the following day (depending when order has been placed).

Please follow us on our social media outlets for updates on the new space.  The #girlboss is on Snapchat (follow, sumdot), follow her along for some behind the scene sneak peaks.  We are teaming up with some amazing Vancouver and Fraser Valley based small business' to make this space beautiful.  We look forward to seeing your faces!

Molasses: What is it and why you need it

When I was little, my Mom had this friend and lets just say she was 'granola' to say the least.  She was a hippy in the 80's.  When everything was metallic, mass produced, fast paced and shiny, here she was with Birkenstocks and hemp.  I remembered her with a full head of grey hair and the smell of patchouli followed her around like a lost puppy dog.  Today however, she would have sunk right into Commercial Drive without anyone thinking twice.  So, why am I telling you this? Other than her hippy exterior, I recall that she would make a molasses smoothie every morning.  

Even today, molasses is not really a common ingredient.  It usually hangs out in the back of your cupboard until Christmas rolls around and you are feeling adventurous to try your hand at gingerbread cookies, which for me never really turn out the way I imagine they would.

However, this month at the lounge our featured smoothie is Holiday Spice and one of the star ingredients is, yup you guessed it - MOLASSES!  So lets break molasses down, shall we?

Most commonly, molasses is derived from sugar cane.  But wait!  Don't disregard this ingredient as an ingredient to stay away from due to the high sugar content.  The process of the making of molasses, in particular Blackstrap Molasses is actually not has high as you would think.  Blackstrap molasses comes from a lengthily boiling and reducing process of sugar cane.  Three boils to be exact.  On the third boil the dark sticky liquid emerges and voila - blackstrap molasses.  A very interesting note is that although molasses is derived from sugar cane, the same cane sugar that has zero nutritional value, once the boiling process takes place and molasses emerges it now contains vital vitamins and minerals.    Some may put it in the super food category.

What does it do for us?

Listen up ladies, sorry guys but this really is for the girls.  Although molasses is great to incorporate for both men and women, the key benefits I thought were especially great for the ladies.

AIDS IN BLOOD HEALTH It's common that women in general can be slightly on the anemic side.  However, just 5 tbsp of molasses contains 95% of your daily Iron intake.  Say what?! That's amazing.  This aids in positive blood health.  Iron aids with the carrying of oxygen in our blood, oxygen being vital for healthy body function.  Any time you can get almost 100% of your daily intake of anything from one food, I call that a win.

HIGH IN MINERALS Blackstrap molasses is high in calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, manganese, vitamin B6 and selenium, so many of our daily required minerals.  These aid in general health however all of these minerals are said to relax muscles, so is said to be an excellent home remedy for menstrual cramps.  So next time you reach for Tylenol or Midol, try reaching for your molasses.

AIDS IN BONE HEALTH As women, we need to be conscious of supplementing with calcium and eating calcium rich foods as we can be prone to osteoporosis.  Molasses is high in calcium but more importantly also high in magnesium , which when these two minerals meet it's mineral profile ideal for optimal absorption.   

PROMOTES HAIR HEALTH One of the many minerals contained in molasses is copper.  The copper peptides aid in the rebuilding of skin cell structure and supports strong healthy hair growth.  Side beauty tip:  Combine 1/4 cup of molasses with a small amount of warm water and apply to hair as a instant de-frizzing hair mask. 

As I mentioned, our lounge is featuring a Holiday Spice smoothie, this is my favourite yet!  Combines cashews, holiday spice blend, a date, banana, molasses and almond milk.  This smoothie is everything holiday and I could drink it by the gallon.  We would love to have you come by and try it!

Pumpkin Seed Bark, recipe

It's pumpkin carving season!  I personally love roasting the seeds and having them in a bowl on my counter as a snack.  This year I did a little research to find that pumpkin seeds have some great health benefits!  Here are a few listed as well as a new take on the standard roasted seeds.  Enjoy!

  • Nuts and seeds are an excellent source of plant based Omega 3's.  We all know the importance of incorporating Omega's into your diet (if not, check out this link) and having a plant base option is great, not necessarily as a replacement but as an added source.
  • Pumpkin seeds are an excellent source of Zinc.  Zinc is an important mineral to include in your diet as it has positive effects on mood, sleep, eye and skin health, insulin regulation and many other benefits as well.
  • Just one-quarter cup of pumpkin seeds contains your daily recommend amount of magnesium.  Magnesium is another great mineral as it aids in the development of ATP (the energy molecule), proper bone maintenance, helps promote the relaxation of your blood vessels therefore helping with blood pressure management and proper bowel function.

Check out the receipe as another added way to get some healthy seeds incorporated into your diet.


  • Seeds from one pumpkin
  • Dark chocolate (or vegan option) of choice.  Depending how big you pumpkin will determine how much chocolate you will need, I had a small pumpkin so used about 3oz of good quality dark chocolate.
  • Drizzle of grape seed oil
  • Himalayan Salt or sea salt, whichever is your preference.
  • Parchment paper

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.  In a small to medium bowl toss your washed and dried pumpkin seeds with a drizzle of grape seed oil (just enough to coat) and 2-3 general pinches of salt.  I like these to be on the saltier side to really counter the sweetness of the chocolate.  Roast for about 20 minutes, keeping an eye on them to ensure they don't burn.  When done they should be slightly golden and crunchy, remove from oven and let cool slightly.  Meanwhile in a double broiler or microwave melt your chocolate.  Pour melted chocolate onto parchment paper and smooth our to make a thin layer of chocolate.  Immediately add your cooled, roasted pumpkin seeds over top of the melted chocolate and place into fridge to completely cool.  Once cooled, remove and snap apart to create 'bark'.  

This is great to have on hand to enjoy with coffee as a yummy treat that has no added extra's, perservatives and fillers that we all should be avoiding.  Enjoy!
