Vegan Smoothies/Juices

I have been on a smoothie/juice kick this past week. I feel like I use my blender everyday over the summer. I am always looking for new and interesting smoothie recipes to try and this past week I found four on Pinterest that I decided would be worth trying. Also, I have been trying to incorporate more vegan meals into my diet, so all of these recipes are vegan friendly. I have linked all of the recipes back to the original source. I may have made a few minor changes to mine, so feel free to add your own twist to any of these smoothies!

Not Your Mama’s Ruby Red Juice

  • 1 grapefruit
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 carrots
  • Β½” ginger

To prepare these smoothies I just peeled and cut up the fruits and veggies as necessary and then tossed them into my blender and gave them a whirl. I used my blender for all of these because sadly I do not own a juicer. Maybe one day…

Happy juicing!
