Minty Green Smoothie

Healthy green smoothie made with avocado but with a handful of mint thrown in for a slight kick. This recipe is allergy friendly (gluten, dairy, shellfish, nut, egg, and soy free) and suits the autoimmune protocol diet (AIP), paleo and vegan diets.

I love healthy smoothies but sometimes they can taste a little too ‘healthy.’ I want a smoothie that tastes good and is good for you. That’s the bar that I always set for smoothies. I won’t post one unless I can do both just like this Minty Green Smoothie

The mint definitely adds a nice kick of freshness. If you want more mint, you can always add a little mint extract. Also, a little bit of honey or agave nectar would be great here. It’s not necessary but it does add a little bit of sweetness if you don’t get enough from the banana.

Between the avocado and banana, this is a filling drink. It’s great for breakfast, as it will keep you satisfied until your next meal.

You’re definitely going to need a high-speed blender for this smoothie otherwise you’ll be chewing on bits of mint. If you like eating mint whole, then you’re fine but otherwise get a Vitamix or Ninja.

Sweet Beet Juice

Beet Juice that's slightly sweet as it's combined with carrots, apples, and mint.

I still love the juicer I got a few months ago. Although I’m trying to get away from juicing so much fruit and focus more on veggies. I still love the Fruity Green Juice recipe that I shared awhile back but today I’ve got this Sweet Beet Juice that’s mostly beets and carrots.

I’ve played around with carrot juice in drinks as it’s surprisingly sweet for a veggie. The sweetness of the carrots and apples and the freshness of the mint really temper the earthiness of the beets. I wasn’t sure how raw beet juice would taste but it’s actually really good. You’d never know that the drink is mostly veggies. If you’re interested in juicing the healthy way but don’t want to sacrifice flavor – this recipe is for you!

I would be very, very careful about getting the juice on any porous surface. Beets are a beautiful bright pink color, which is extremely effective at staining just about anything it touches. Don’t feed this drink to your toddler as he’s standing over a rug or sitting on the couch. Everything will end up pink. Guaranteed!

Since Valentine’s Day is approaching, this will be my drink of choice as I’m still pregnant. Like I said above, it’s a beautiful pink color so while you should keep it away from your couch, it’s definitely appropriate for the holiday.

It’s nice to take an evening to say I love you to your spouse or partner on Valentine’s Day. Festivities will be toned down this year as I’m starting to slow down as I get closer to my due date. I probably won’t be making any grand romantic meals this year and may just make some juice and serve it to my husband in a fancy wine glass. We can cheers to our first Valentine’s Day as a married couple and the last before our family of two becomes three.
