Beauty Drink

Good morning everyone! I woke up early as I have a ton of stuff to do today and wanted to make a fresh juice to start the day off right. I never stick to a strict recipe when making juice, and I always try to incorporate a variety of different fruits and veggies. So every day is a little different :)  


Today I used: kale, beets, apples, celery, a carrot, ginger and lemon 



This is my juicer, as you may have seen in my juicing video. It is the Breville Juice Fountain Plus and works really well.

Open to read more!



Today I decided to do something different! I was watching itsjudyslife the other day on youtube, and her husband made a juice similar to this one. But before drinking it, he puts the juice in a blender with spinach. The spinach totally liquifies! This is great because you also get your fiber since you're not only extracting the juice. Plus spinach is amazing for you!  




Here is the juice after putting all those veggies and fruits down the juicer. Now its time to add this to the blender.





And voila!! Super nutritious and this provides me with all my vitamins, minerals, amino acids and goodness. I try doing this every morning :) 

Hope everyone has a great day! XOXO

  2. Oh my gosh, I've been really into juicing things lately as well! I don't know if you have Netflix, but if you do, you should check out the movie Fat, Sick, & Nearly Dead! It's a documentary on this guy who decided to go on a juice diet for 60 days due to health issues and it was what inspired me to go out and invest in a Breville juicer as well hehe!

  3. It's a shame that here in Finland kale is only available in the stores for a short period in fall :( I've been planning that i'm gonna make my own little garden on the balcony by next summer and grow there some kale! :) Thank you for so inspirational videos and blogposts!! :-))

  8. I've become obsessed with kale. I always throw kale and spinach into my berry smoothies, along with some vegan yogurt or almond milk and flax seeds that I grind up... adds a bit of thickness not to mention the nutritional value is through the roof.

  13. Hey Annie I know you're a busy gal so you probably won't get to this, but I was just wondering, how heavy is your juicer? (I know that probably sounds like a ridiculous question). I've been using my parents' juicer which is really hurting my back every time I lift it out of the cupboards. Do you think the juicer you have is a reasonable weight? I want to see if my parents will get me the one you have for my birthday :) Thanks!
