Green Cooler Smoothie

Quick story: I have been working so much at the office (day, night, all weekends) that I haven’t cooked one meal for myself in two weeks straight. Instead of my normal healthy meals, I was drinking large almond and soy milk lattes like it was my job and eating meals packed with preservatives, soy, wheat and not enough fruits and veggies. The result?

Strawberry-Mint ‘Cool Aid’

Another recipe that is so simple and easy to make, but wanted to post it to share the idea.

So if you ever run out of non-dairy milk… before you run off to the store in your PJ’s or robe, check your cupboards for raw almonds, cinnamon and a little cane sugar and make your own instead!

Immunity Juice

I call this “immunity juice” because it’s packed with all sorts of good stuff to boost your immunity. To be honest- it’s a little sour due to the grapefruit and lemon combo (but I love grapefruit and lemon), so feel free to sub the grapefruit with 2 peeled oranges to get the same vitamin C punch without the tartness. I chose grapefruit because they were at the Farmer’s Market.
