Why You Should Replace That Coffee for a Smoothie or Juicing!

24 Jan

Now lets start by saying this is coming from a Coffee Addict, but I’ve decided to make an important change. Trading in my morning coffee for a smoothie and here’s why!

1. Crash & Burn

Its widely known coffee gives you an immediate burst of energy, but soon after you crash and burn leaving your body to crave more. But what you should know is that a smoothie will give you the same effect without the crash and burn. I make my smoothie with fresh squeezed oranges, banana’s, strawberries and even add a special antioxidant Red Powder from trader Joes full of amazing ingredients. I get the same burst of energy from the sugars of the smoothie, but no crash, no burn, and my energy last longer!

2. Get your Vitamins

The natural way that is. We rely too much on manufactured vitamins, but nothing as is good for your body as the real thing. If we all just ate the way nature intended we wouldn’t need to take vitamins at all. I get all my servings of fruit first thing in the morning when they can be used for energy and I get plenty of vitamins which keep me healthy and my immune system strong. I’m getting all my vitamin C the natural way. Better yet is if you have a juicer, you can add in some apple, beets, green peppers…the possibilities are endless and then you’re getting even more nutrients and cutting down on the sugar.

3. Coffee is a Drug

Let me tell you, after 2 weeks straight of headache withdrawals  I can tell you coffee is an addictive drug. I felt like I should be in a rehab facility! Anything that causes such a severe withdrawal should tell you that its not good for your body. Drinking coffee leads your body wanting even more. Whens the last time you had a headache from drinking too much, or not drinking enough smoothies? Never.

4. When in doubt go Healthy

When in doubt, use your wits and just go healthy. What has nutrients, vitamins, whats good for you, whats all natural? Fruits & Vegetables! You will lose more weight giving your body nutritious fruits and vegetables, than just coffee.

5. Stop running on empty

Coffee does not sustain you, fruits and vegetables do. Drinking a smoothie or juicing can be used as breakfast and at least keep you feeling satisfied throughout the morning. With coffee you’re running on empty, and in fact the acid from coffee can actually cause stomach irritation.

So if you want to lose weight, feel better, be healthier I encourage you all to make the switch with me and take note of how much better you feel throughout the day!



Fat Free Carrot Icecream

7 Apr

This Carrot Icecream is so Delicous and healthy. It’s low in Sugar because the carrot juice is actually very sweet and we use fat free condensed milk.  I made this icecream after buying a juicer and realizing the amazing sweetness to carrot juice.


2 Cups Carrot Juice

3 Egg Yolks

1 Cup Skim Milk

1 Can Fat Free Condensed Milk

1 packet Gelatin


Heat Milk & Condensed Milk on low for 5 minutes, and then let cool down slightly. In a large bowl mix 3 eggs yolks with carrot juice. Once Milk has cooled down add to eggs and juice whisking everything together. Continue whisking and add 1 packet of Gelatin. Add to icecream machine for 25 minutes. Pour into container and freeze for 2 hours and then serve.

This icecream is great because the natural sugars in the carrot juice ae your sweetner so there is no need for corn syrups or melting additional sugar. Also by not heating the carrot juice your icecream will remain full of vitamins!
