Cooler Cleanse Giveaway and Discount

Happy Fourth of July! Hope you all enjoyed your long weekends. I enjoyed mine, although I had to work a little each day, especially on Monday. For some reason I have to work over every long holiday weekend — what is up with that?! I did get to spend a good amount of time out in the sun, so being sun-tired combined with stressed from work means Tuesday blags is late tonight. But worth it.

As you might know I’ve tried Blueprint Cleanse twice and Organic Avenue once. What I haven’t had a chance to discuss yet is that last month I tried the new kid in town in the world of the juice fast — Cooler Cleanse. A collaboration between Salma Hayek and Eric Helms (founder of Juice Generation in NYC), Cooler Cleanse officially launched earlier this year. Their history, from their website:

Since 1999, Eric Helms, founder of Juice Generation, has offered the ultimate juicing experience in New York City. In 2008, he received a very specific challenge from friend and fellow juicing devotee Salma Hayek. She asked him to custom-blend the perfect detoxifying drinks: raw, nutrition-packed juices that would improve her cleanses to make them as effective—and enjoyable—as possible.

Using his top-of-the-line hydraulic press, Eric created a rich array of nutritious concoctions from organic, sustainably grown produce. Salma taste-tested and reviewed them all. The process took months as what started as a friendly challenge evolved into a dynamic collaboration to create their dream line-up of detox drinks.

The result of their efforts is a cleansing program that is easy to accomplish, ultra-fresh and absolutely delicious. To complete the cleansing experience, they worked with some of the best nutritionists and vegan chefs in Manhattan to develop additional raw-food menus, always using the premium-grade ingredients on which Eric built the success of his stores.

So it sounds great, but Blueprint Cleanse also sounded great and well, I really disliked their green juice. I drink green juice every day but BPC’s was just too sickly sweet. I think it is the apple. Organic Avenue was okay but the delivery was annoying and expensive. I was excited to try Cooler Cleanse to see if it was any better, since it is very helpful to me to have a juice fast that I like because of my GI illness.

Even though my stomach has been feeling much better than the last few years, sometimes I still feel really badly. A  juice fast helps get me on track again. In fact, right before I had four months of feeling almost completely better, I did a juice fast. I really believe it is a good tool for resetting and getting back on track to a better stomach and healthier habits.

For those of you not familiar, the hydraulic press used to make these juices retains the most vitamins, minerals and enzymes so you are essentially drinking vitamins and nutrition and health and rainbows and unicorns. Drinking your meals also gives your digestive system a break so your body can use less energy digesting and more energy absorbing nutrients and healing. Check out the reasons you might want to try a juice fast.

While on a juice fast, you will miss the act of eating but you will probably not feel hungry. There are SO many vegetables in these juices and they are just so filling. Sometimes I am not able to finish a whole day. I do recommend getting the advice of a professional before starting any cleanse and following the instructions on easing into the fast — and out of it. And please read the SIX BIG QUESTIONS, which has valuable information on who should — and shouldn’t — cleanse.

Cooler Cleanse

So last month I checked out the Cooler Cleanse website and decided that instead of the standard 3-Day Cooler Cleanse, I would instead go with something I thought was a fantastic idea — the Custom Cooler. In the Custom Cooler, you can choose exactly which juices you want from their menu. If it is your first time cleansing, I would absolutely recommend going with their 3-Day Cooler Cleanse because the juices (and the order) are carefully selected for the purpose of, well, cleansing. In my case, I’ve been around the juice fast block a few times and I know what I like and I know what I need for my specific stomach problems. And that is why I ordered three days worth of Custom Cooler.

Before I go on I just want to say that I receieved no discount or free cleanse to try. I paid in full because I wanted to try this out.

And . . . I loved it.

Seriously, their Essential Green juice. SO GOOD. Like real green juice. Not sickly sweet or overwhelming or very veggie-tasting even. I read that Salma Hayek went through many green juice taste trials before they perfected their green juice recipe. (The secret ingredient is pear!) I also tried some other juices from their menu.

Cooler Cleanse Essential Green

I really loved the Pineapple & Ginger juice. I drank it on my first of three days and wished I had ordered it for all three. But then I also loved the fruit juices I ordered for the other two days — the Pineapple Mint and Waterlemon Lime. Uh, yeah, how could I not? The Essential Red was all right, not my favorite. I tried the Almond Milk and the Brazil Nut Milk. Both were good and sweetened with dates only, so they weren’t as sweet as other cleanse’s  nut milks I’ve tried on cleanses that contain agave. There is a debate going on about whether agave is good or bad for you so it was nice to avoid that whole issue and stick with a true natural sweetener. That said, these nut milks really are not as sweet as you might be used to, so prepare yourself. While they were a great treat at the end of a long fast day, the “dessert” feeling was a little lost. But I still thoroughly looked forward to and enjoyed the nut milks.

Almond Nut Milk

Would I do Cooler Cleanse again? Definitely. Would I choose them over their competitors? Yep.

I really enjoyed their juices, the convenience of their delivery and the fact that they offer a Custom Cooler ($60/day — but think about buying a few margaritas and dinner!).The typical 3-Day Cooler Cleanse ($58/day) contains six juices a day. This is the sample menu.  They also have a 5-Day Cooler Cleanse for the more ambitious of you and a Raw Cooler ($62/day), which delivers a full day of delicious raw-food meals and drinks. And if you do the Raw Cooler you get SMOOTHIES. They look so good. You can read about the different types of cleanses here.

  1. Hi Again! I entered earlier for myself and I would LOVE to win this, but I’m taking out my own enty and entering on behalf of my dear friend, Laura, instead. We’ve known each other for 25 yrs (met when we were 15!) and she is the most wonderful, spiritual and persevering woman I have ever met. She deserves the Cleanse more than anyone I know, including myself. Without being too revealing, it’s worth saying that she has had her shares of MAJOR ups and downs. She was the victim of a incident that scarred her physically and emotionally, and yet she has overcome it and gone on to raise (by herself) a loving and adorable 8-year-old son. Laura’s a painter and writer (and once lived in a solar powered hut in the middle of the desert alone for several years just to paint! (pre-child, of course), and attends weekly spiritual groups to explore and discuss new age/alternative practices. I always think that if I had been faced with the challenges she has faced, I’d be in a terrible place – but there she is, filled with light, love, compassion and laughter. I am so lucky to know her and be her friend. I think she deserves to win this. Thanks!

  2. Hi!!

    I deserve to win this because I have been waiting for the Cooler Cleanse to go nationwide for a while! I keep checking their website and I keep planning what juices to have when it goes nationwide!
    I have done a couple of cleanses before but none of them had me as excited as this one! I can’t wait to try it!
    Please please pick me! :))) I always love the feeling a cleanse gives me, and I know this one is going to be by far one of the best ones I do, if not the best one. So please pick me! Yay! :))

    Thank you so much for this!

  4. YIKES I’m sorry for writing so late!…my best friend in nyc just sent me your link! I have been talking about the cooler cleanse to evereyone since I saw it on Daily Candy – Philadelphia yesterday. I live in Philly and we don’t have anything like this here so I am so excited! I too am a GI illness gal, with a history of severe IBS and constipation and a tortulous colon. Miralax and Gatorade are unforuntately my best friends and my way of “cleansing”. I have been looking for a juice cleanse that is all natural and healthy. I want to feel like those girls on the Fiber One commercials who feel all light and airy. Even if delivery is not available in Philly, my brohter and best friends live in NYC and I am going to be there a few times over the next week so I will pick it up. Really looking forward to trying this and jumpstarting my health. Thanks so much!! Cat

  5. Hi. I would love to experience Cooler Cleanse. I have raised my children the “natural” way and want to help myself this time. I am 42 yrs. old and need a boost as I head into the next phase of my life! What better way to start my kick off to good health as I head into my mid forties. I am anxious and excited to try this. I would really like to have my 15 yr. old daughter try it as she has suffered from asthma and allergies all her life. I have juiced in the past, but have fallen away from it and want to get back on track!!! thanks for the consideration Kelly

  8. I am ready to begin my fitness routine ASAP. I am preparing myself mentally to put my foot down & get in shape. I’ve already started by removing meat from my diet and I’m on day 23!!! YAY ME!! Sometimes our dissatisfaction with our appearance & health is a sub-conscience excuse not to be all we need to be! I want to eliminate this roadblock in my life now! I deserve a complimentary 3-Day Cooler Cleanse because this will be my boost to a better ME!

  9. I REALLY want to try the Cooler Cleanse. I had a friend who had great results and I recently purchased an expensive cleanse by my house and couldn’t make it but I REALLY want to try and get through this one. I would be an excellent testimonial and would rave about it to all my friends!

  11. Hello! I really think I deserve this cleanse because it will be an excellent jump start to my new healthy lifestyle. I watched a fantastic documentary on juice cleansing and its amazing benefits and I have done a bunch of research on the subject. I would be so appreciative if I were to win this very generous giveaway. I plan on doing the cleanse anyway because I think it is such an amazing way to be healthy, but it would be incredibly helpful if I were to win in allowing me to better enjoy cleansing without worrying about the cost and it would enable me to start the cleanse sooner. I am hoping that if I win I can get my family on board as well! Thanks so much :)

  14. Good Morning,

    Granted this is 2012, I just came upon this website and decided, “why not”, reply.
    I deserve a free cooler cleanse because I am 38 years old, just had a surprise blessing of a baby boy in August and have a wonderful 10 year old. I am 5’3″ tall and 200lbs. I work full time and act as a chaffeur for my 10 year olds activities – which could drive anyone bonkers. My husband is active duty military and does his fatherly share when he’s not at work at the Hospital.
