I’ll Drink to That!

My day usually consists of a lot of run around, meet ups, phone calls and a to-do list a mile high. While I work on better time management and find a clone, in the meantime, I get a fill on these amazing natural, organic and good-for-you beauty in a bottle drinks. I’m a purveyor of fresh-pressed juices and smoothies but I don’t always have it on me to spend $5+ on my daily juice addiction.

How to pick out the best juices-

 Look for great brands that have certified organic ingredients or who you can verify stands behind the integrity of their product.

Added sugar is a big no-no so make sure the only sugar in your juice comes from the actual fruits and veggies.

Try to find juices that will give you what you’re not getting consistently every day. I love a lot of green juices that have kale, spinach, spirulina, cholrella and lots of vitamins to boost my detox routine, make my skin nice and clear and fuel my body with good energy.

Here are my top two picks…

I’m still stuck on BoltHouse Farms Green Goodness.
And when I’m really on my game, I’ll mix in some Green Vibrance for the veggies, vitamins and probiotics. I always feel better (mentally and physically) when I’m consistently taking Green Vibrance.  It gives me life and I don’t think it’s the placebo effect, lol. Check out the reviews on Amazon.

    I juice my own green drinks and people get all grossed out but it really just taste like fruit and it's great for your hair and skin. I did a heavy greens diet and axed sugar for two weeks and you would not believe how much my skin glowed! Worth it ladies!…

    I definately want to try Green Vibrance, but ive been under the notion that fruit juice even these are empty calories and therefor no-nos. 🙁

    They really should start selling more of this stuff in England, this looks soo good for you. Maybe I should just make my own in the mean time.

    I will be forever grateful to CurlyNikki for recommending Green Vibrance, several months ago. I blend it at least daily, with juice and some Carlson's Fish Oil. It has given me extra energy and clarity to keep up with my busy life.

    I NEVER drink the bottled stuff. I make my own green drinks daily. It is better to blend the greens in a high powered blend (i.e Healthmaster, Ninja or Vitamix) rather than extracting the juice from the pulp (i.e in a juicer). It is also a lot easier to make! You just wash and throw all the organic stuff in the container, pour in a bit of water, cover and turn on. I purchased BPH free bottles to store the drinks in and use those daily.
    This process takes me 10 min (or less) each morning. Blended drinks also retain their nutritional value longer, because everyting is still there. It has just been pureed down to a liquid.

    The only smoothies i drink are friut smoothies from Bolthouse and Natures Collection. I have completely eliminatied dairy a couple months ago because it causes acne and other skin conditions and within those months I noticed that my skin was clearing up. But I want my skin to go back to how it was a few years ago; completely flawless.
    So while at an organic grocery store, this dude basically told me that I lacked the intake of greens. Since I dont like to eat them raw, he suggested to make them into jusices so that I'll get all its nutrients. So currently im starting to adjust to it.
    Also I saw a paid commercial of Montell Williams new blender. I thought of making my own since like most people i dont have that $5 for daily graan juices. Although It seems pretty good, its quite expensive. Hope i find something similar, yet affordable.

    I second buying a juicer. After all my research the Breville compact is the most affordable for quality. You don't want a cheap or old juicer….too many parts to clean, inefficient juicing… Pain in the butt. After 20 uses…. Less than a month … You'll get your return.

  • Samantha Nneamaka says:

    Odwalla smoothies are great toooo !

  • sam says:

    These juices sound good but they are heated so much so that they will last for a long time in a bottle most if not all of the natural enzymes are killed in the process.

    I invested in a juicer and now my Greenie drink rivals BoltHouse's Green Goddess. I love how easy it is to get my veggies for the day (which was something I struggled with in the past). I put spinach in just about everything, but I definitely have to try kale :o)

    nothing beats fresh green smoothies and they are quicker to do than juicing. if i can't make a smoothie though, i'll mix wheatgrass powder with water and drink that twice a day and now i have the option of the drinks above!

    I tried green vibrance but my body can't stand these green drinks with probiotics. They just mess me up. Most people love it though..

  • Itaska says:

    @Curly Nikki, do you take your Green Vibrance straight with juice or water? Or do you mix it as a smoothie.

  • DiJah says:

    I make my own, but i'm always open to try new juices.

    My favorite to make is: 6 kale leaves, 2 green apples, 1 cucumber, a piece of ginger and some lemon juice. It smells like fresh cut grass but it taste great, I promise : )

    Find a juicer at a thrift store and make your own juice. It's cheaper. I made carrot, grape, and kiwi yesterday. I'm going to add some spinach to it as well. Tasty!

    I love 100% organic juice…I'm hooked on naked juice green machine. The price started to hit the pockets hard so I decided I would ask for a juicer as a graduation gift. To my surprise I actually got it…I love that thing…Saves me money and I can actually make my own combo…Its very convenient and easy…I have the Breville Fountain Plus and its a very easy clean up…I also love it b/c you know exactly what is in your juice and don't have to worry if its authentic or not.

    ps. Green Vibrance version 10.3 has 124mcg of Vitamin K (154.5% RDA).

    If you are pregnant, or are on a "blood thinners" regimen (aspirin, heparin, Lovenox, Plavix, Coumadin/Warfarin), please show GV to your health care provider before including GV in your daily diet plan.

    I tried the Green Vibrance a few weeks ago – "swamp butt" doesn't begin to adequately describe the taste!!

    A more accurate description would be "Take the weed whacker out of the garage, scrape the dried stuff off and into a cup. Throw in a tablespoonful of dirt, add apple juice, stir well and drink". I believe that initial experience has put me off apple juice for life!

    The GV has been sitting on my kitchen counter ever since. If it's that good for you, I guess I'd better start taking it again! LOL!

    ps. I purchased the Green Vibrance packets from Vitamine shoppe – they also sold single packets to try it first.

    (note: GV may be cheaper on-line).

    These sound yummy and good for you, when you don't have time to do your own juicing.

    I don't know how picky of an eater Miss Gia is, but start giving her some of the Green Goodness too! Diluted with water of course. I started giving it to my son around 2 mixed with his liquid multi and he loves it. He ask for his "Green Juice" every morning and has no idea broccoli, spinach and more goodies are in it. I was trying to get him accustomed to consuming the color green….didn't work, but he still can't be exused from the table until he has had at least 3 spoonfuls of veggies.
