Now, while these rich decadent smoothies are not the most low-calorie, healthiest smoothies on my site, sometimes it just has to be all…

Vanilla Chai Green Smoothie

Brazil Nut Milk

As fond as I am of almond milk, I like to mix things up and make a variety of plant-based milks for nutrient and flavor diversity. Brazil nut milk is in my rotation because it's nutritious, and unbelievably delicious in smoothies. Brazil nuts are rich and creamy, and loaded with beneficial nutrients. They're one of the richest sources of selenium (about 2,500 times more than any other nut), making them a fantastic complete vegetarian protein with a full amino acid profile. Just two…

Spicy Mango Detox Juice

This Mango Magic juice with coconut, lime, and chile is one of my all-time favorite juice recipes because it's decadent and refreshing, and has an awesome back-end kick. I enjoy this juice with the pulp to get the benefit of the whole mango. Straining mangoes feels wasteful. The texture is silky smooth. But, if you prefer a pulp-free juice, strain. If you like things hot, juice the chile whole without removing the rib and seeds. For kids or heat-phobic adults, leave it out altogether.…

Winter Warming Parsnip Juice

This winter warming parsnip and root juice from Julie Morris is rich, creamy, warming, and delicious. This blend is like fire in a glass. Juicing during the colder months can be a challenge when our bodies are craving warm foods. Luckily, there are many foods found in nature that have an inherently warming effect on the body, which is exactly why Julie created this juice. It's softly sweet with just a hint of spice. If ever a juice were to be described as comfort food, this would fit…

Holy Grale Of Kale Juice

If you think juicing kale can't taste amazing, this sweet grape and kale juice may change your mind! There are a lot of kale juice recipes out there, but they usually involve a lot of ingredients.
