2 cups carrot juice
1/2 cup apple juice
3/4 cup low-fat plain yogurt
3 ice cubes
Put all ingredients into blender and whip until desired thickness is reached.
1/4 cups blueberries
1/4 cups blackberries
1/2 cups apple juice
1/3 cups light raspberry yoghurt (this is extra sweet and light if you use a sorbet instead)
Put all ingredients into blender. Blend until smoothie consistency is reached!
3 sticks of celery
1 medium carton of apple juice or half a can of frozen concentrate
1 small strawberry yoghurt
Chop celery finely and mix individually with the apple juice.
Chop and add the strawberries to the mix then blend all the rest of the ingredients together.
Quadruple the recipe for a full pitcher.
So I went to see my dietician yesterday. I visit her once a month these days to help keep me on track and on top of new research and such and she reminds me that it’s recommended that within the 7-8 servings of fruits and veggies recommended daily (8-10 servings for males 19-50) that at least one of those should be an orange veggie and one should be a green veggie. So I got to experimenting last night and found a great way to get 4 servings in one glass.
2 cups of chopped spinach (frozen works as well as fresh, but cut amount in half or the flavor is overwhelming)
1 cup of chopped carrots (Pureed in a food processor first works too but measure them chopped and then puree)
1 1/2 cups of 100% apple juice
4 ice cubes (omit if using frozen spinach and use a couple tablespoons of water as needed for consistency)
Pour the apple juice into a blender, add the chopped spinach whirl until smooth.
Add the chopped carrots and blend well.
Add the ice cubes and more juice if necessary.
Blend on high until smooth.
