More juice and smoothies!

TGIF peeps! This week I made some yummy juices and smoothies. Obviously, I’m obsessed with both. And why wouldn’t I be, right? I mean they are jam-packed with nutrients and the benefits are endless. It’s also fun to mix up your recipes and create new ones. Below are a few recipes that I love! They are also very simple. Feel free to tweak the recipes and add water instead of almond milk, or another fruit or veggie, seeds, etc. It’s all about what you love! I’m still trying to incorporate more kale into my smoothies. We’ll see how that works out! P.S. Cheesy recipe names courtesy of me :)

One more thing, please use organic veggies and fruits when you can. If not, make sure to remove the skin, as they can sometimes contain pesticides.

Don’t be surprised when the color dramatically changes from green to brownish/purple. All due to the dark color of the blueberries! Still completely delicious :)
