A variety of fruit salads perfect for pairing with yoghurt
The David Jones food court in the Sydney city CBD is a favourite destination for all Sydney foodies. There are so many tasty treats and high-end products on offer, it can be hard to know where to start. But there is one place I always make a beeline for, and it is the Top Juice juice bar. Healthy snacks and freshly squeezed juices have never been quite so tempting before.
My freshly squeezed and delicious juices
The juices are all made from fresh fruit run through a juicer. They come in small, medium and large sizes, and I find that I am usually very full after a medium. Customers can choose from pre-set juice blends, or make their own by choosing their favourite fruits and mixes to go in. I usually get the pre-set ones, as I trust that the people there really know the best combinations. I haven't been let down by these yet.
Some other healthy snacks that can be purchased
My two favourites are the Happy Juice (rockmelon, strawberry and mint), and the Jungle Juice (coconut water, mango and banana). In fact, I would gladly trade my usual breakfast for the Jungle Juice, as it has a breakfast flavour to it, and loads me up with energy for the rest of the day. What more could you want when traipsing around the city streets, or heading for a long day at work?
Mouth watering muesli and fruit
Fruit just waiting to be made into juices
It's not just juices at Top Juice, either. You can get frappes, smoothies and protein shakes. Or, if you prefer something more solid, there are a number of healthy and delicious snacks to choose from. Fruit salad with yoghurt, and toasted muesli with sliced fruit and nuts are two mouth watering examples. When I was there recently I couldn't believe how good the muesli with strawberry, banana, coconut and yoghurt looked.
The different sizes that are available
Fruit almost too pretty to eat
The best thing about Top Juice is that you watch as they make the juices. This is great because it means you can see that your juice really is 100% made from fruit, so there are no added sugars or flavours. And trust me, you wouldn't need them. The juices and healthy snacks here are so delicious and filling, with the added bonus of not putting any nasties into your body. What could be better than that.
