Let's Get The Juices Flowing!!
This heavenly practice of squeezing and squishing fruit and vegetables makes me seriously happy people. Big time Happy. It solves two of my big health bugbears: 1. I don't tend to drink enough water. Let's face it, it tastes like water. 2. I don't eat enough fruit. Ok, while Im confessing , I hardly eat any fruit. I don't really know why. I didn't eat much fruit growing up besides lunchbox bananas. Urrrgh....that's enough to turn a girl off for life!
So the Blender, The Juicer and I have become serious goodtime pals and I thought I'd share some of my favourite recipes. The kids love them. Just don't make them in front of them because they are seriously packed full of good stuff.

|Can't Beet a ....Juice|
Can't Beet a... Juice
1/2 beetroot 2 green apples 1 pear 3 carrots 3cm piece ginger
Juice it and serve over ice. This juice is also great swapping the beetroot for cucumber as I have above. :)

I Can't Believe it's Not Chocolate!
1/2 avocado 375mls coconut water good dash of coconut milk 2 TB maple syrup (depending on how sweet you like it) 2 TB raw cacao powder tray ice cubes
Blend until smooth. You won't believe it until you try it. My kids absolutely believe that every so often I make them chocolate milk after school. .....yeah right!!
