I’ll keep this short and sweet today, but thought I would share 3 juice/smoothie combo’s I am loving lately. I do recommend blending these fruits and veggies or doing half and half to ensure you are getting all the nutrients you can from these delicious foods. I often will find myself juicing the harder fruit and veg + any citrus first. And then taking that juice and blend in the more leafy choices (you’ll yield much more green goodness). Of course blending works with all these recipes, just be sure to add water!
This PineApple-Mint juice is a big favourite of mine! But be aware that it can carry a lot of sugar, so make this one more of a treat. I like to juice the pineapple and blend in the apple and mint. That way I get the most flavour from the mint and the fibre content of the apple skin. This one is so quick and delicious, you’ll want to make it all the time!
1 apple, half a pineapple, handful of mint
Next up, we have Sweet Carotene which is high in beta-carotene (see what I did there haha).
This immunity boosting nutrient works to protect against toxic free radicals. So load up on this one. 🙂
2 apples, 2 sweet potatoes, 2 carrots and 1 lemon.
Lastly, Lean Green. Which is great when you are looking for a reset. I often feel like this one first thing Monday morning,
after an indulgent weekend. First, juice the apple, lemon, cucumber, and celery. And then blend it with the spinach and romaine.
If needed add a touch more water and you are good to go!
1 apple, 1 lemon, 1 cucumber, 4-6 stalks of celery, 1 head of romaine and 2 cups of spinach.
