Ingredients:  4 slices of watermelon 3 jalapeños, seeded (keep a few of the seeds for an added kick) 1/3 cucumber Directions: Slice the watermelon + cucumber Cut out… Read more »

Watermelon Cucumber Juice Recipe

With summer now officially here, I thought I would revisit watermelon as it was so popular the last time I posted about it.  However, this time I decided to juice it.  Plus, I have been so busy lately and haven’t posted a juice recipe in a couple of weeks so it was about time. This may not be the prettiest juice – but you have to remember that when you mix anything red (watermelon) with green (cucumber) the color produced… Read more »

Spicy Cantaloupe Pineapple Green Smoothie

Three more days and I will be jetting off to the Bahamas, to celebrate a milestone birthday for a dear friend.  The next three days can not go by fast enough! While the weather has gotten better in New York, I heard the temps are expected to drop again soon and I can’t believe I’m saying this but I need some vitamin D and some sand between my toes.  While I am admittedly a lover of all things fall I… Read more »

Banana Mango Blueberry Smoothie

Frozen mangos might just be my favorite thing ever, alone or in a smoothie, yet funny enough I haven’t shared a single smoothie recipe with mango in it!  Shocking, I know.  Believe me, I searched through my archives, multiple times, and was so surprised that an ingredient I use often, aside from the ever so popular (and similar) acai bowl, has yet to makes its debut in one of my recipes. Don’t worry, I plan to fix this over the… Read more »

avocado pineapple smoothie recipe, sage + sparkle

As I mentioned yesterday, I was feeling a bit under the weather… not the full-blown sick that you won’t feel better for days (maybe even weeks), but something more of the stomach flu variety.  Not sure if it was something that was going around or something that I ate, but 30 hrs later and I feel brand new! Now, I’m not saying that this smoothie cured me, but I will say that yesterday, around 5pm when I still hadn’t been… Read more »

green grapefruit juice

This weeks green juice is a little less sweet and a lot more tangy!  When shopping at my local fruit market, I came across this G I A N T grapefruit and knew I had to juice it! For this one serving juice, I only needed half a grapefruit (it was that large), which I added to an otherwise typical green juice. And can we stop for a minute and talk about how beautiful this juice was, throughout the process?… Read more »

green juice recipe .001

Today, I’m sharing with you another quick and easy green juice recipe. This one is pretty basic and is very similar to a traditional green juice (spinach, apple, cucumber) but with pear instead. Adding pear makes this juice not quite as sweet as it’s apple counterpart. For those of you that think green juice can be too sweet, then this is the recipe for you. Ingredients:  2 handfuls of spinach 1 pear 1/2 large cucumber 1 lemon (peeled, keeping as much… Read more »
