Healthy and Tasty Smoothie and Juice Recipes
Remember how I said I was on a juicing kick? I still am. Everyday I find myself starting my morning with a smoothie, before lunch I drink grapefruit juice and then as a mid afternoon snack I sip on a veggie juice. I always read that grapefruit speeds up metabolisms so I’ve been trying to fit it in lately whenever I can. But I really am loving the smoothie and veggie recipes that I have been making so I just wanted to share the recipes with you.
This blueberry smoothie is sweet, filling and has a lovely texture from the real fruits. And doesn’t it sound so healthy too?
Make sure that all of the fruit is ripe
1/2-3/4 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
3/4 cup skim milk
1 full handful of fresh blueberries
1 small banana or 3/4 of a large banana
1 packet of equal
Blend until you get the consistency that you want.
This veggie juice is great. It’s kind of like a boost of energy in a glass. All I do is juice the following: 1 large cucumber, 3 large stalks of celery, 1 big handful of spinach and 2 apples.
