Fresh Juices and Smoothies


We become vibrant from the inside out.

When I feed my body fresh fruits and vegetables, I notice a big difference in my energy levels. Sometimes it’s hard to get motivated to make a fresh juice or smoothie in the morning, so I’ll often juice before bed and seal my juice in a mason jar. Then in the morning, I just grab and go!

Do you ever make fresh juices or smoothies? What recipes are your favorite?

Recently I made this refreshing combo... I call it the Sweetheart Smoothie. I love that the citrus feels very bright and energizing, and at the same time the root vegetables (beet and carrot) give it this amazing grounding quality.

I suggest making the juice the night before, and then blending everything right before you want to drink it. Enjoy!

Sweetheart Smoothie
Juice:
1 beet
2-3 apples
3-4 carrots
1” chunk of ginger
1 lime, peeled

Blend with:
1 cup frozen strawberries
1/3 cup frozen pineapple
1/3 cup frozen mango


Also, if you’re looking for a green juice recipe, here’s my absolute go-to:

Green Juice
2 chutes spinach (probably equal to about 3 cups when I use my Breville)
1 cucumber
2-3 sticks celery
2 apples (green or red, whatever you like)
1-2 oranges, peeled
1/2 chunk of ginger (or a little more if you like ginger)
1 lemon or lime, peeled

I also read a recipe for a very simple alkalizing green juice: cucumber, celery, kale, lemon. Definitely going to try that one!


I’d love to hear your smoothie and juice ideas! Namaste, yogis.


PS Here are some other recipes from the blog: a creamy greensmoothie featuring rice milk and almond butter and a green smoothie featuring moringa and chia.

  2. I'm really happy with my green drink. I've always taken in Green drink, but I feel that this one was pretty good for the price. So far so good! It is a stronger formula as far as taste, but I like it.
