Let me just start this out by sharing one thing.
I don’t like sweet tea.

I love iced tea, with lemon.

I love lemonade.

And I love Arnold Palmer’s (a mix of lemonade and iced tea) but I don’t like sweet tea. It tends to be too cloyingly sweet for me; I prefer the sweet-tart bite that lemonade provides.

So when I tell you to add sugar to your tea in a few minutes, keep in mind that basically what you’re making is an all natural lightly sweetened lemonade and iced tea all at the same time.

It’s the lazy woman’s way to make an Arnold Palmer.

This is the final of the three juice recipes I wanted to share.

Another favorite, my Immunity Booster Juice, while made from fresh, raw fruits and vegetables is not what I’d consider a “Green” Juice.

It’s frankly quite orange.

There’s no greens in it at all. But I enjoy making it every so often for it’s rich, bright flavor and it’s immune enhancing qualities.

Another one of our new favorite juices. I call it Spicy V-12 Juice. I’ve always been a fan of V-8 juice, but, you know, they’re trademarked. And my recipe calls for 12 ingredients plus makes your body feel like a luxury sports car . . . enriching your cells with plenty of garlic and sweet and hot peppers that not only add vitamins but also internal “heat,” carrots for beta carotene and beets for encouraging de-toxification and lowering blood pressure.

Super healthy, yes, but it also tastes amazing!

This is my basic green juice. The one I reach for and make if I don’t have a “specialty” one in mind. The one I make to add to frozen berries and pineapple in the blender to make a super antioxidant rich, sweet, green smoothie. The one I add carrots and sometimes a red bell pepper too to drink straight as a green juice. Our favorite, best-tasting basic. . . .

 

Who doesn’t adore a steamy mug of hot chocolate?

It warms ones soul; starting from my fingers encircling the mug, both hands, if the opportunity arises, all the way on down to the belly. Instant comfort, instant calm, and immediate bolstering on a crisp, winter day.
