I’m always asked what I put in my morning green juice or smoothie. I mix it up depending on the season and what I’m craving. I’ve put together my top 3 green recipes. Whether you are a green juice or smoothie fan, you’ll find something here to help green your diet.

Do I juice or blend my greens? I have a great Breville juicer but the reality is my early weekday mornings are so rushed that I use my VitaMix most days. The following recipes are best using a high powered blender, like the VitaMix.

My everyday basic green juice is refreshing with very little sugar. I use this before a workout and before my morning NYC commute (which is a workout!). The mint is a great breath freshener!

1/2 c. kale

1/2 c. spinach

1/2 c. romaine lettuce

4 mint leaves

1/2 lime, peeled

1-1/2 c. coconut water

Hot summer NY mornings I always crave a bit more fruit in my juice. The combo of pineapple and cilantro gives it a bit a “Mexican mojito” taste…if you know what I mean.

3 Romaine lettuce leaves

2 large kale leaves or 1 c. of baby kale

1/4 c. cilantro

1 c. fresh chopped pineapple

1/2 lime, peeled

Somedays I like to SHAKE it up and create a real sweet and filling treat.

1/2 pear

1/2 avocado

1 tsp chia seeds

1 c. baby spinach

1 scoop of paleo or vegan protein powder

1 c. filtered water, more or less for desired consistency

1 c. homemade almond milk
