I am a Smoothie Queen.
Yes, I have anointed myself and I don't wear my title lightly. I have been a smoothie devotee since well before they became trendy and have enjoyed not only the incredible health benefits and the convenience of getting a few servings of necessary fruits and green vegetables in a small number of sips but also the vast number of vibrant color-filled food combinations you can use to make these multi-benefit drinks. I have the pleasure of drinking one almost every day of the year.

The Healthy Smoothie Bible has been a source of creative ingredient inspiration for a few years. With over 100 recipes, you're sure to find a smoothie for almost every meal plan or occasion. The book also inspired me to come up with my own smoothie recipe that I whip up in minutes in my trusty Vitamix Blender for a blast of energy first thing in the morning or in the afternoon to beat that 3 PM fade. As a bonus, I include some nourishing ingredients that may be beneficial for my skin. Try my quick and easy Energy Blast Smoothie recipe below or be a Smoothie Visionary and create colorful combinations to suit your own taste and/or health needs:
Juliet's Energy Blast Smoothie
makes 1-18 ounce serving

Add all ingredients to your blender, mix and enjoy!
