Juice and Smoothies and Tea Oh My!

I am happy to inform you we are still juicing!  We are getting used to taking the time out of our busy days to fit in this healthy yumminess.  I've also been experimenting with different ingredients to make healthy smoothies which are perfect for post workout recovery!  With pretty weather I've been able to run outside a lot more in the past 2 weeks which gives the motivation to run father, which in turn gives me a reason to juice or make a smoothie.  Such a great reward for hard work:) I want to share a few of my favs over the past 10 days or so with you..
1 carrot
1 orange
2 granny smith apples

Make sure you consume your fresh juice within 6hr or so, best if within 10-15 min to get the full benefits of the nutrients

1/2 cucumber
1 orange
1 handful spinach
1 apple
2 carrots
1 lemon
1 lime
2 beets

cucumbers produce a lot of juice so have a big cup ready!
adding ice helps the taste sometimes:)
juice from soft to the hardest produce in order to push the juice through

1 golden delicious apple
1 1/2 oranges
1 carrot
1 lemon
The deal with citrus fruit..peel oranges and grapefruits before juicing but feel free to leave the peel on lemons and limes!

How about a post workout smoothie??
1/2 frozen banana
1/2 cup soy milk
1 Tbsp almond/peanut butter
1 handful spinach
throw it in the blender!

This one has 1/2 cup frozen blueberries added to the above recipe
Also if you want to add thickness just add ice!

Tea Time..
I enjoy lots of different types of tea but my current favorite would have to be this!
Happy Drinking!
Love, T
