Glowing Goddess Juice

   

 

 

Since the holidays are approching, things always seem to get busier, more things come up and we sometimes forget to take good care of ourselves.  I was making this juice, (which was delicious BTW) and was reminded just how much better I feel when I "juice" on a regular basis.  So I made a BIG batch for the family to save some time tomorrow, pre-portioned and ready to go!

  • 1 head of romaine lettuce
  • 2 cucumbers
  • 1 whole celery (8-10stalks)
  • 2 apples
  • 2 limes
  • handful of spinach 

Wash, chop and run all ingredients through juicer.  Serve immediately, or store in glass air tight container for up to 2 days.

Makes 6-8  servings:)

***Juicy tip -  Just adding in a juice a day, especially during the holidays will keep you feeling great!  

Juicy's Pina Colada Smoothie

This is such a fun and delicious summer smoothie!  The flavours are dynamite.  Great for breakfast, afternoon snack, and for us mama's - we can always add a little rum for little fun night with your bestie's when you get a chance to unwind and enjoy those warm summer nights!

  • 2 cups of Coconut Milk (or milk of your choice)
  • 2 Banana's 
  • 2 cups of chopped Pineapple
  • 2 cups of ice
  • 1/2 cup of shredded Coconut

Place all ingredients into your blender.  Pulse until desired consistency.  Serve and enjoy!

Serves 4 - 6 :)

****Juicy Tip - If I have extra smoothie left over I pour into popsicle trays and freeze!  Nothing goes to waste and I have on hand a yummy treat for the kids on a hot day! 

Juicy's Beet Juice

I know! BEET JUICE RIGHT?!  Well this one is definitely thirst quenching and will get your toxins flowing right on out!  All while nourishing your body temple and making you feel fantastic!

  • 2 medium organic beets chopped (skins on)
  • 2 medium organic cucumbers
  • 10 celery sticks
  • 1 lemon peeled
  • 1 lime peeled
  • beet leaves (if you have them)

Run all ingredients through your juicer and drink immediately:)  If you don't have a juicer, you can always add about a cup of water and juice up in your blender.  Just use a strainer afterwards to separate the pulp from the juice:)

Makes 2 - 4 Servings

***Juicy Tip -  Although drinking immediately is the best, I know some of us are on tight schedules and simply don't have the time to juice everyday.  This can be stored up to 2 days in the refrigerator in a air tight jar.  Voila!

Enjoy & Live Juicy!

Put all ingredients into a Large 1.5L Mason Jar and cover.  Serve immediately or allow flavours to blend for 30 minutes.  If you prefer non - alcoholic you can replace the wine with Cranberry or Apple Juice.  

Serves 2 - 4 :)

***Juicy Tip -  You may also use fresh berries as well.  The frozen work well in keeping the beverage cold when you serve right away!  Enjoy! Live Juicy!

Green Hulk Smoothie

When I first started making smoothies for my kids that had veggies in them my girls were really receptive but my son wasn't so eagar to try, so we decided to call this one the Green Hulk because he like's the "Hulk" and believes he will be powerful and strong when he drinks this one!  It may sound like a interesting combination of ingredients but they work really well together.  I broke this down into a single serving, I triple the ingredients when making or my 3 kids:)

  • 1 Cup Coconut Milk 
  • 1 Banana
  • 1/2 Avocado
  • 1 pitted Date
  • 1 cup Spinach
  • 2 Scoops Hemp Vanilla Protein Powder or Hemp Seeds
  • 1 Tsp of Cinnamon

Place all ingredients into your blender and process on high for about a minute.  If you like your smoothies colder chop and freeze your bananas ahead of time.  

***Juicy Tip - Dates are very high in fiber which is great for healthy bowl function.  They are also loaded with vitamins and minerals.  Avocados are nutrient dense and provide heart healthy fats which will help to keep you satisfied.  They also give this smoothie a wonderful creamy texture.  Cinnamon has many health benefits and it is also an natural anti-inflammatory.  So this smoothie is not only delicious but it is super nutritious.  Enjoy!  Live Juicy!

Rockin Raspberry

Raspberry is one of my favourites to use in smoothies!  I love the flavour... with this one I like to add a few drops of Lime Essential Oil (or fresh lime) but the two flavours paired together are dynamite!

  • 1 Cup Coconut Milk
  • 1 Cup Frozen Raspberries
  • 2 Cups of Spinach
  • 2 Scoops of Hemp protein powder (I like the Pomegranate Berry Flavour) but you can use any protein powder of your choice.
  • 2-3 drops Lime Essential Oil (or 1 fresh squeezed lime)

Simply put all ingredients into your blender and process until smooth.  

Serves 1 :)

***Juicy Tip - Spinach is loaded with fiber, high in protein, and packed full of vitamins and minerals.  This nutrient dense fiber loaded smoothie will give you a boost of energy and keep you fulled:)  Enjoy! Live Juicy!
