What is COLD-PRESSED?
Cold Pressed juice refers to the use of a hydraulic press to extract juice form produce as opposed to the regular centrifugal juicers. This press creates a longer shelf life in the bottled juices. Cold-pressed develops the highest juice yield with the highest nutrient content that can come out of fruits and vegetables. Having the juice pressed with hydraulic pressure rather than heat preserves the juices real nutrients!

What is HPP?
Common juices products go through a pasteurization process to keep foods fresher and safer longer. High-pressure processing, or HPP, is a USDA-approved food safety procedure and a form of pasteurization that doesn’t use heat, additives or preservatives. During HPP, high amounts of pressure are delivered to the food product to render the pathogenic microorganisms, like mold spores, viruses, and bacteria, inactive so they can’t cause foodborne illness. Cali Shake’s cold-pressed juices are intended to deliver as much nutrition as possible, we don’t use HPP or any other pasteurization method that will alter the nutrition of our product. This means that our juices are meant to be consumed within a certain time frame for the best nutrition intake. You shouldn’t drink our juice products past their shelf life because they haven’t undergone the necessary food-safety procedures for long-term preservation. We believe in producing the freshest items as much as possible so we juice 3 times a week in our cold press juicer to ensure we have the newest juices ready for grabs!
What should I do the day of cleansing?
- Drink all juices about 2 ½ hours apart.
- Drink PLENTY of water during the cleanse, about 8oz after every juice
- If you are starving and really think you can’t make it through… don’t blow it! Have a handful of unsalted, organic nuts, or a small leafy green salad to hold you off
- Save the shots for the end of the day as they are created to really finalize the cleanse your body is currently going through!
- Use this time for self-care and do something that put a smile on your face or makes you feel happy
- Have a cleansing partner! Someone who can share accountability with you and make sure you go all the way through with it to the best of your ability!
Can I drink caffeine while cleansing?
If you are already a coffee (or tea) drinker, it is okay to continue to drink organic, black coffee (or tea) during your cleanse. As long as no milks or added sugars are put into it. Coffee and tea are not so much affected in the blood stream, as long as you are staying hydrated and drinking the juices every couple hours you should be just fine!
Can I exercise while cleansing?
If you consistently workout then it is okay to do a light workout. Go for a bike ride, a walk, a light run, just do not over do it! The body is resting during a cleanse so if you feel a little off just give yourself a break.
What are the side effects of cleansing?
- Hunger and Cravings

Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should avoid cleanses. Since our juices don’t undergo high-pressure processing (HPP), they aren’t pasteurized. Pregnant women should never consume unpasteurized milk, cheese or juice because of the risk
