It’s terrifically sweet that folks always want to thank Sara for making such a delicious product, and I’m sure Sara would be downright grateful to take the compliment if there actually were a woman named Sara making these incredible juices. But in a surprising twist it turns out that Sara is, well, you.

See, the story goes like this: Lynn Morris, the magic maker behind the must-have beverages, named her company in honor of Sarasota. She creates these drinkable packages of perfection out of Sarasota’s freshest ingredients for Sarasota’s fresh juice lovers, hence Sara(sota) Fresh. It’s all making sense now, eh?

It would be impossible to untangle the juice from the maker as SaraFresh is Lynn and Lynn is SaraFresh. It’s a symbiotic match made in heaven, with Lynn fully deserving of a set of wings. This mother of two girls works ‘round the clock to secure the best local ingredients, namely from Worden Farms, and mixes them into unexpectedly delicious combinations, all the while showcasing a mega-watt smile that turns every stranger into a friend. I don’t know about you, but pre-teen girls and a 20-hour workday would stress me out—but not laughable, lovable Lynn Morris, who has never once faltered in her friendliness and hard work.

SaraFresh has several staples, like its famous selection of green drinks that pack a big ol’ dose of healthy vitamins and minerals, as well as its equally adored nut-milks and smoothies. Additionally, Lynn also likes to focus on seasonal blends in which she plays alchemist, concocting all sorts of unique flavors ranging from tomato water with a touch of Himalayan sea salt to her 100% pure starfruit juice. Fennel, carrots, beets, kale, pineapple, sprouts, ginger, turmeric, lemon, apple, jalapeño, watermelon, romaine, celery, cilantro—if it grows out of the earth, Lynn has liquidized it into something special.

Flavor is clearly integral to the process, but even more important is the process itself. SaraFresh juice is completely cold-pressed, a method of juice extraction that minimizes air intake, resulting in a very slow oxidation or decomposition of vital enzymes. Why does this matter? Because all juice is not created equal. Most store-bought juice is just straight up sugar and packed with preservatives to lengthen the shelf life, which would be magnificent if you were buying a convenience store marble cake. But you aren’t. SaraFresh’s hydraulic cold-press method exerts tremendous pressure on produce, which completely extracts the natural fruit sugars, vitamins, trace minerals, and other vital elements that enables juice to be bottled without preservatives and still maintain a five-day shelf life.

SaraFresh isn’t just a tasty beverage. The company boasts a small raw-food menu, superfood smoothies, and full juice cleanses, plus in-house dieticians, athletes, and doctors who are committed to inspiring healthy living.

Next time you see the SaraFresh “Food”, Truck, be sure to stop, shop, sip, and smile.
