I don’t need bodyguards. I’m from the South Bronx. – Al Pacino
And here’s hoping you’ll never need a bodyguard on the Surf Coast either, but your body may feel like it has one, after you take it along for a visit to The Bronx Pressed Juices, Torquay and Geelong West.
My Surf Coast Life is coco-loco about the newest kid on Torquay’s Gilbert Street block – The Bronx Pressed Juices. It’s not just the juices at The Bronx that are the talk of Torquay.
The smoothies here are of the serious smooth operator variety. And just when we thought we’d tried every combination and permutation of the smoothie clan, here’s the tribe at The Bronx – Mintana, Rango, Green Guru, The Preston The Gilbert, and F45 – and all available with pump-you-up add-ins and protein powders, for a bit of extra juju.
So what’s the go with cold-pressed juices? It’s no secret that the high levels of antioxidants present in cold-pressed juices have many health-promoting, immune-system strengthening, skin-purifying and liver-detoxifying properties. It’s all in the pressing.
Cold-pressed juice extracts are the rawest and most nutrient dense form of raw natural juice. Try the Rolls Royce, Full of Life, 100% Orange, Get Reddy, The Godfather, Morning Glory, Daily Grind, Cocoloco, E3LIVE + coconut water, Nut Mylk, Mr Smith, and One in a Melon.
The Bronx team source only the very best fresh, local organic produce; and the by-product of their cold-pressed juice operation is donated back to local farmers, who use it to make compost for their farms. Now that’s pretty cool.
Love the statement on The Bronx Pressed Juices website that they’re up for just about anything and everything – weddings, festivals, fundraisers and corporate events. Fantastic!
And there’s more than just juice at The Bronx. Acai bowls, chia and fresh fruit pudding cups, and salad packs are THE BEST. Check the pics on The Bronx Pressed Juices Instagram feed – amazing, breathtaking, and all that! And check what Forté magazine has to say on the subject –
Try a one, two, three or five-day cleanse. There are three to choose from – The Bronx Signature Cleanse, Pick Your Own Cleanse, or the Summer Lovin’ Cleanse. All cleanse packs come with accompanying written information and guidelines. Book your cleanse online, or pop in and have a chat to the sparkly Bronx team. Packs of eight juices – in funky little retro glass bottles set in a nifty little cardboard milk crate – are prepared for collection on order the day following your start-up acknowledgement to ensure premium freshness, as juices are pressed daily.
And if what you’re very soon to learn about one person’s preference for blacky-brown liquid fizz doesn’t make you want to hop on The Bronx Pressed Juices choo-choo train, quick smart, maybe nothing will.
Yep, if you’re on the hunt for inspiration to dive into a juice cleanse and detox, or just feel like a taste test first, the following words of wonderment should do the trick, and just may be the inspiration you need to fire up…
I’ll drink water. Sometimes tomato juice, which I like. Sometimes orange juice, which I like. I’ll drink different things. But the Coke or Pepsi boosts you up a little. – Donald Trump

It’s all rainbows and unicorns at The Bronx on the Surf Coast. Who would have thunk it?
