Juicing: Orange, Carrot, Beet and Pineapple Juice

Monday, November 3, 2014

Recently, my husband and I have been kind of on a juicing high. We have been purchasing so many different fruits and veggies to try and juice. It is so easy and fun, and a great way to explore and create your own juices. We purchased a store-brand juicer and it has actually served us quite well and is the most amazing kitchen appliance I have ever bought! Seriously, if you are ready to juice but too afraid of the initial cost, I assure you it is going to blow you away and you won't regret it :)


We have been experimenting with different recipes, juicing only vegetables and taking that to work with us. Today I will share with you one of our top recipes of sweet juices! Make sure that all your veggies and fruits are washed. You do not need to peel the veggies as the juicer will pretty much do it for you. Enjoy!

Tropical Green Smoothie

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

Sometimes, it is hard to intake all of the recommended fruits and veggies in a day. Which is why I love to blend them all up and drink it up as a smoothie. Recently, I have been experimenting with smoothies quite a bit. Anything I can think of, I tend to throw into my smoothie. This type of smoothie is what I like to call a tropical green smoothie. All you need is some chopped up pineapple, mango and pear for the "tropical" part, and some spinach for the "green" part. As a base and to thicken it up, I used vanilla Greek yogurt. But you can use milk (almond, soy, rice, cow, goat) or juice (any fruit juice of your choosing).


Add it to your blender and blend it all up!

And enjoy!

Spinach and Berry Protein Shake

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

Recently, ever since I purchased my Hamilton Beach Single Serve blender, I have been going crazy and making smoothies and shakes every day! I blend both veggies and fruits for a nutrition-packed drink. I also make sure to add Greek yogurt or a scoop of protein powder for an added boost of protein, especially since I started the 60-day workout challenge and have been working out every day. I try to use fresh fruits, but for a "smoothie" type of feel I use frozen berries and blend them frozen instead of using ice. It tastes so much better! Enjoy!
