If you read my March Must Haves, you know that I’m loving juicing lately. I’ve been drinking fresh juice practically every morning since purchasing my cold-press juicer for Christmas. It’s so much fun experimenting with delicious fruit and veggie combinations.

Juicing is a powerful and quick way for your body to naturally absorb essential vitamins and enzymes. My favorite time to drink juice is first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. It gives me an energy boost, clears my head and is a great motivator to jump out of bed each day!


If you find yourself feeling sluggish when you wake up or fighting off a cold or cough, I highly suggest giving juicing a try for all of its health benefits.

Benefits of juicing:

  • increase energy levels
  • strengthen immune system
  • aid in detoxification of toxins
  • improve complexion
  • provide highly concentrated vitamins, minerals and enzymes
  • prevent illness, disease and cancer
  • help manage weight

Today I want to share my all-time favorite juice recipe with you. It’s simple, delicious and energizing! After a bit of tweaking, I think I’ve found the perfect flavor combination.

This recipe is full of beta-carotene, Vitamin C and antioxidants. It also contains kale, one of nature’s superfoods. Kale is a dark, leafy green with powerful anti-inflammatory properties. It provides the body with high doses of iron, calcium, and Vitamins A and K.

Wash all ingredients thoroughly. Cut skin off the orange and slice into eighths. Core and slice the apples. Remove kale leaves from stem.

Put everything through the juicer. I recommend alternating the hard ingredients {apples and carrots} with the softer ones {orange, kale and lime} as you juice.

Drink, enjoy and reap the benefits of my Energizing Green Juice!

I wanna hear from you! What’s your favorite juicing combination? Leave a comment below!

Lots of love,
