We are excited to introduce our January Juice and Smoothie Specials! Here’s
why they’re delicious and, of course, why they’re nutritious.
The Taste: It has a tart berry taste yet is still warming and comforting because of
the oats and cinnamon. A berry smoothie that is fit for colder months.
The Mix: Banana, Cinnamon, Acai, Oats, Cranberry, Strawberry, Almond Milk
The Fix: Strawberries, cranberries and acai berries are all packed with
antioxidants. These antioxidants eliminate cell damaging free radicals from your
body and help to keep you healthy and disease free. Rolled oats are a great
source of protein as well as fiber. The fiber both the oats and banana contain will
fill you up and help keep you fuller longer. Getting an adequate amount of protein
and fiber is the key to maintaining stable blood sugar levels. Cinnamon
emphasizes this because it also helps to regulate blood sugar. Having stable
blood sugar works to keep you energized and helps you avoid those mid-day
hunger mood swings. This is a good smoothie to grab for breakfast or mid-day
snack as a great treat to stave off hunger.
Burn Baby Burn
The Taste: Savory and spicy!
The Mix: Celery, Lemon, Cayenne, Cucumber
The Fix: Think Detox. Cucumber and celery juice have a high water content that
helps to hydrate your body. They hydrate while replacing electrolytes and other
essential vitamins and nutrients. Cucumber and celery juice also act to soothe
your body by reducing inflammation. Lemon is great for cleansing the liver and
the digestive system. Cayenne pepper also cleanses the system. It purifies the
blood and aids in the body’s natural detoxification process by promoting healthy
sweating. Sometimes you need to spice it up for some serious detox.
*This drink can be made year round upon request!
Gingerbread Man Smoothie
The Taste: The flavor of a delicious gingerbread cookie blended with creamy
cashews to really satisfy a craving for a comforting sweet treat.
The Mix: Ginger, Cashews, Banana, Cinnamon, Hemp Seed, Honey, Vanilla,
The Fix: Raw honey is rich in vitamins, minerals and living enzymes. Hemp
seeds and cashews are high in both protein and heart healthy omega-3 fatty
acids. Omega 3’s help the body prevent stroke and heart attack. Cashews and
vanilla are believed to be calming. Vanilla beans reduce pain and inflammation
and their warm, rich taste and aroma soothes the mind as well as the body.
Ginger also helps to reduce pain and inflammation. Cashews contain tryptophan,
an essential amino acid that improves serotonin production in the brain.
Serotonin works for mood regulation in the brain and can promote the effects of
calmness and relaxation. This creamy and delicious smoothie will make you feel
as good as it tastes.
The Taste: Warming and sweet. This is a juice with character and a little ginger
The Mix: Cinnamon, Ginger, Beet, Carrot, Apple
The Fix: Eating seasonally allows you to get the most nutritional benefits from
your food and it is also a great way to support local famers. Root vegetables are
in season during the winter months and this drink is a great way to get your fill.
Carrots contain vitamins and antioxidants like vitamin A and vitamin C; both of
which help to keep your immune system functioning at its fullest potential. Ginger
gives your system an immune boost because of its high levels of antioxidants
and improves your body’s circulation. Beets are very cleansing to the system.
They’re great for detoxifying the liver and purifying the blood. Beets are also
packed with nutrients and can improve energy levels, making this a great choice
for a pre workout drink.

antioxidants that can help reduce cholesterol levels. Mint cleanses the stomach
and is great for digestion. Carrots contain vitamin A that protects your skin from
