Juicy stuff

Banana Blueberry Goodness

Let's Get The Juices Flowing!!

I must confess to a slightly addictive personality. As I get older this tends to apply to more virtuous pursuits (thank goodness!) and if I find something that makes me feel good, I embrace it.I don't like juice..... I  LOVE juice.

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

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
