hot pink juice.

I wrapped up this valentines weekend with a hot pink juice. It was delicious!

1 grapefruit
2-3 carrots
2 apples
1 small beet

juice and enjoy!

*update! I made this juice AGAIN last night and subbed an orange for the grapefruit. YUUUUM. right amount of sweetness.
this time I did 1 apple, 1 orange, 1/2 a beet and 3 carrots. Perfect for one post-work out serving.

beet smoothie.

I’ve been in a bit of a smoothie conundrum lately – making the same old smoothies day after day. But today I decided to mix it up a bit, after seeing this show up in my pinterest feed yesterday.

We have some beets leftover from our garden harvest and I’ve been contemplating what to do with them. I’m not sure why I didnt think to put them in a smoothie?! Probably because I didn’t think they would taste good.  I was wrong.

I didn’t have everything in the recipe, so I took the liberty to sub my own things and I came up with something I definitely dont want to forget. Its packed with hidden gems, which was great for milo (he drank the whole smoothie this morning), and it was a nice change of pace from my normal smoothie routine.  Will definitely be adding these to my mix!

1 1/2 cups almond milk
1-2 small beets (you dont have to peel them, but clean them well)
1 apple
1-2 handfuls of spinach
1 frozen bananaabout
6 or so strawberries (mine were frozen)
1 Tbs peanut butter

Blend well, and enjoy!

245. apple cucumber beet juice.

Also known by milo as “purple juice.”

I have a busy day ahead of me – about to get groceries, run to the farmers market and head to the library – all before I’m out of here to shoot a wedding. So I made milo and I some juice to help get us going.

This was a mixture of
2 green apples
1 small beet
3 large pieces of kale
1/2 large cucumber
handful of pea shoots

Milo drank all his, and then came to find me and finished mine! Another juice, toddler approved.

189. pineapple, beet, kale & apple juice.

I picked up some golden beets at the farmers market today and couldn’t wait to get home and turn them into some kind of juice.
I used 1 large orange beet, 1/4  of a pineapple, 1 green apple and some kale. This was so so delicious. Milo drank his and then insisted on finishing mine!

184. green juice.

Made this green juice tonight with the hopes to get some fruits and veggies in milo and IT WORKED! In his exact words…”mmmm, this is delicious.”

1 green apple
3 stalks celery
1 cucumber
5 pieces of kale
handful of green grapes
