Premium Sparkling Prickly Pear Cactus Water Debuts in Arizona
By Claire Natale - Tuesday Jan 26, 2021
The beverage aisle is dominated by sugary, nutrient-deficient drinks, including juices that claim to be healthy and sodas that offer zero calories and are loaded with harmful chemicals. Finding a natural, healthy and delicious drink was a challenge until now with the debut of Lauro Sparkling Cactus Water.

Founded and created by Phoenix-based, Lauren Robson, Lauro Sparkling Cactus Water is the first and only sparkling cactus water on the market. Made from all organic prickly pear puree, lime juice and agave nectar – three simple ingredients that make a big impact. Prickly pear has a sweet and tart taste like a fresh raspberry. There are no concentrates, additives, colorants, artificial ingredients or “natural flavors”.

“After a long day by the pool with my family, I decided that I had had enough of fighting my kids and myself to stay hydrated,” Robson said. “I knew exactly what I wanted because I had been looking for a while. It had to be natural, plant based, low in sugar, and my kids had to want to drink it.”

Robson had spent 15 years in the health and nutrition industry before leaving her job in 2019 to create Lauro. Prickly pear was the unique ingredient she had been looking for.

Prickly pear is fast becoming the latest “super food” as it is packed with plant-based electrolytes, antioxidants, and amino acids. It also has 30% less sugar and calories than coconut water. Benefits include electrolyte replenishment, healthy skin, support of Type 2 diabetes, muscle recovery, immunity boosting, hangover recovery and more.

Lauro is available at eight Valley AJ’s Fine Foods, 10 Whole Foods throughout Arizona, Le Grand Orange, Royal Palms Resort, the Desert Botanical Garden among other small retail locations. For more information visit
