Making It Fresh, Natural & Nutritious – Sips Cafe
CLAYTON, MO/January 10, 2017 (STLRestaurant.News) – January is the month when most of us try to get our daily diet and exercise routines back on track. Even if you’re not a resolution-maker, you may be looking for healthier offerings after weeks of rich and sometime decadent holiday eating. That’s where Sips Cafe at 7818 Forsyth Blvd in the heart of Clayton can help. Sips is a premium juice bar, so everything is fresh, everything is good for you (and the planet), and everything is vegetarian. Sips owner Sharon Hall is focused on satisfying your juice, smoothie and coffee needs.
Sips only offers 100-percent cold pressed, slow juice. This method of juicing retains more nutrients because fruits and vegetables aren’t shredded with blades, which exposes the produce to air and heat which speeds up oxidation—meaning nutrients are lost in the process. Cold pressing also yields more juice from the produce than with a traditional centrifugal juicer. Because of this, pressed juices have more fiber and even a little protein, meaning you get a bigger health boost in every glass.
Sips offers a variety of flavor and nutritional combinations, depending on what you want and need. Each begins with a cucumber base, with the add-ins defining them. The King of Greens is the top seller. It’s a delicious blend of kale, green apple, celery, cilantro and lime, and it’s crazy healthy! The “Can’t Beet It” mixes tangy pineapple and with antioxidant rich beets. The Zinger combines green apple, ginger, and lime for a refreshing and zippy drink. And the Clayton Carrot takes the orange vegetable to new flavor heights with the help of green apple and ginger. Sharon is happy to create a custom blend for you. And she can help you customize a personal detox regimen, creating the cleansing juices you’ll need.
For those of us who just can’t live without a cuppa Joe, this Clayton café offers a cup we can feel good about. All of their coffees are locally roasted and Sips offers only original fair trade espressos drinks and pour overs. What’s a pour over? It’s the ultimate in custom, hand-crafted coffees. A pour over is made by grinding just enough coffee beans for a single cup of coffee, so you can customize the blend any way you want. The fresh ground beans are placed in a cone brewer with a filter, and hot water is poured over the beans, brewing a single, fresh cup of coffee. They do gourmet hot chocolates too! Get them in Classic coco, Mexican, Chai Coco, and Mint!
Sips Cafe is also a great spot for a smoothie. All of their smoothies are all made with whole fruit, organic juice, and just enough water to blend. Hall supports chemical free, local farmers to ensure that the fruits and vegetables they use are as natural and healthy as they can be. Some things you won’t find on the Sips menu: anything made with high fructose corn syrup, added colors, or artificial syrup. There isn’t even any ice in the smoothies, which rely on the fruit itself for thickening. It just doesn’t get any cleaner than that.
Sips Cafe is open 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday – Saturday. They’re closed Sundays. Now, a stop at Sips is even more convenient with the addition of a “grab and go” cooler. It’s stocked with juices that have been pressed and blended fresh that day. Just grab the one you want and use the convenient quick pay box for cash purchases. Then you’re on your way!
So now there are no excuses. You can add a healthy boost to your day with a quick stop at Sips in Clayton. You can even indulge in your favorite coffee drink or sweet creamy cocoa, and still take better care of yourself, during resolution season, and beyond.
