Smoothies are always a healthy alternative to sinful milkshakes and Boost is definitely the go-to place for your smoothie cravings. Fruit, yogurt, milk and ice cream are main ingredients in their refreshing blends and a the whole smoothie can almost double up as a meal. The largest sized cup ('Original') goes at $6.50, which is on the high side if you're trying to salvage your wallet. However, it is a good replacement for snacks and is something you can sip on to pass through hot afternoons. The different flavours stay true to their names and the Banana Buzz is like liquid banana, in a good way. All Berry Bang tastes a little bland at times but it really depends on the staff that day (maybe they had a lot of ice with them that day). Honestly, just assume that any drink out of here is healthy and don't be too stressed out counting calories because this is as healthy a smoothie as you get and the maximum calories in any drink here is about 350? It's all cool. All in all, if you are in to fruits and love desserts but want to feel less guilty, Boost would be great for you.

Boosts my happiness

I first tried Boost when it opened in ION. I still remember looking at all the choices I had, and deliberating for the longest time before choosing Banana Buzz. Consisting of bananas, milk, honey, and vanilla ice yoghurt, it is much a much healthier and yet equally tasty alternative to Starbucks... Or at least I like to tell myself this is true. Instead of ice cream, all their drinks use ice yoghurt or sorbet, so it is much less fattening.

If you are in need of that extra boost of happiness, they have indulgence smoothies which are the King's William Chocolate and Cookies and Cream. They are 98% fat-free, so who says you can't have your cake, or in this case chocolate, and eat it too?

For those students out there, just flash your card to get a 15% discount on any drink.

Atas fruit juice

Singaporeans are getting more and more health conscious. Hence, causing the birth of many "healthy" food stalls. How healthy they actually are, we don't know for sure.

Boost juice is one such fruit drink/smoothie stall that sells many innovative fruit juice. And one can choose to add one "boosters" which include protein, energizer, vitamins etc, that are unsuitable for the young. Otherwise, their smoothies and fruit juice are refreshing. You can even create your own juice by choosing a few of your favorite fruits.

Overall, it is rather pricey for a cup of fruit juice. I feel myself better off buying my own fruits and making my own fruit juice at home since it is more cost efficient and healthier. considering that Boost Juice juices are very sweet (through the addition of sugar/sweetener).

All my Favourite things in a cup.

My one-stop favourite juice bar for healthy fruit blends. Mmmmm, I can taste the juicy goodness in my mouth already. Whenever I'm in Ion or Vivo City, I never pass up a chance to grab my all time favourite Berry juice - Berries mixed and blended together with apple juice and yogurt, all of my favourite in one cup.

It's ironic that words cannot describe the type of bliss I get drinking a cup of my favourite juice.

While the drink never fails to give me a brainfreeeze, the flavour and texture of the drink keeps me coming back for more. I love the way the ice is blended but not so, creating a thick and creamy texture in the blend. Taste-wise, the juiciness of the drink seems to burst out with every sip, and the after taste is sweet and addictive.

On a sad note, I always forget to use my boost card whenever I pay. Also, since I've stopped schooling I'm going to miss the student price of Boost.

where did they get their fruits from??

I had my very first taste of Boost Juice in Australia in the form of Mango Magic as my choice. It was refreshing with the mango and low-fat ice cream quenching my thirst. I was thrilled to find out they have extended their franchises to Singapore.

But things doesn't always end up in your favour and this time, it is the elephant in the room - their not so wallet-friendly prices. Priced steeply, one can actually wonder whether they get their fruits from a faraway paradise land which has rainbow coloured rain that waters their fruit trees causing them to triple in size and giving them their nutrients in quadruples.

In my opinion, as much as their drink taste heavenly, I'm better off getting my all time favourite watermelon and orange fruit juice from a hawker centre than to splurge on Boost.

Refreshing

Great to see all these juice bars popping up all around Singapore of late. In short, Boost is a fruit juice shop that offers different combination of fruits for different qualities. They are usually situated in town which means that they often enjoy brisk business. I am quite surprised at how popular they are because their juices are not cheap! With price and size considerations, I usually just get the smallest size so I won't get overly full.

I like their menu layout and all the different juice combinations that they offer. It's nice to see how particular fruit combinations have different uses, be it energy boost, or general detox drinks etc... The staff make your drink on the spot, so you can be assured that it is completely natural and pure. Sometimes I am hesitant to purchase from them because I know of other places where fruit juices are much cheaper at around $2+ but given that Boost is in the city area, the prices of their drinks are justified.

Service can be quite slow especially when there are many people ordering because they are limited by the number of juice blenders. Thankfully, the wait is not unreasonably long so just have a little bit of patience and you'll soon be walking off happily with a nice cup of refreshing juice.

Healthy and delicious

Boost is a great alternative to sweet drinks. It's definitely a whole lot healthier and it doesn't taste half as bad as normal "healthier options". I am a sucker for bananas, so naturally I get the banana buzz smoothie most of the time. When I tried it for the first time, I was a little worried that the drink would have a strange after taste like most bananas-consisting foods do, I'd be lying if I said that it doesn't have any form of sour after taste, because it does. However, it fades a lot quicker than I expected it to.

Another great drink that the have is the cookies and cream one. It's good for the days where I don't mind a couple of extra calories. It's still really healthy, but it's quite a treat when you're on a strict diet. It's not too sweet, and consists of a tart under taste from the yoghurt so it's perfect for anyone who doesn't have much of a sweet tooth, because I really don't and things that are overly sweet can make me feel a little nauseas.

The prices for boost can be pretty steep for every day drinking, but I'd say it's a splurge I'm willing to make because of the numerous health benefits and great taste.

Good and bad

Was just sourcing for drinks when we chanced upon this healthy drink store. My company was elated to discover their customization abilities; to use soy milk instead or to add boosters of protein/vitamins and they’re also fat-free!

I admit that I don’t find the price exactly reasonable but the quality makes up for it. They’re served in 3 sizes:
• Kids (small)
• Medium
• Original (large)

The staff at Boost would always ask if you’d like an Original. Here’s where the scam comes because we’d think it’s the regular-sized cup but it’s not. IT’S A WHOLE LARGE CUP (S$6++) which is incredibly hard to finish. Halfway through and you’d feel all bloated. I love that their drinks are tasty and cater toward living the healthier lifestyle but honestly.. do simple fruits as these cost that much?

I give them 6 months

And they'll go back to wherever they came from.

The Singapore general crowd is not health conscious. No. For a country that has little in attraction, we make up in food. So this isn't going to work out.

Then how did I find myself here?

Paris Baguette was nearby and they don't sell drinks so we decided to be pseudo-health gurus and sat ourselves down at a small table here.

I ordered a banana smoothie and my friends got a berry one. Mine was alright actually, it tasted a lot better than I expected it to but then again, I paid a lot more ($5) than I expected to too so it's a fair trade.

The berry smoothie is not bad. If I were to come again, I'd go for that.

All in all not someplace I'd come back again.

Umm... are fruits this expensive?

I tried Boost when it first arrived in Singapore and felt pretty cool drinking juice from a Styrofoam cup. “ Oh look at me being all healthy and following the healthy lifestyle craze,” I thought to myself as I took in sip after delicious sip of the juice.

Sadly, I decided to ask my friend how much it was and all those daily Boost dreams immediately came crushing down. Though the juice tastes pleasant, I cannot phantom why I would need to pay so much for blended fruits. I have only had their juices a few times since because of the high cost. Really do wish they added vitamin shots though, that would help me patronize their shop more (while being guilt-free at that).

Kids are so rich

Whenever I passed by this store, I would notice some young people ordering drink from this store. They could be in school uniform or those not in uniform looked like they were from polytechnic only. Do parents really give their children so much pocket money nowadays?

Even for a working adult like me, I would always think twice before queuing up for a drink with this store. The drink was nice and refreshing but the price for a drink was equal to the price of a meal at the coffee shop. For me, such drinks were really good to have and I would only indulge myself once in a very long time. Children, if you are earning your own money, the price of one drink here is almost one hour of your pay at a McDonalds, think before you spend.
