I really enjoy my super green juices but sometimes there’s nothing more satisfying than a sweet juice, especially for breakfast. I was a little bored with my usual orange juice so I came up with this blend and added 1/4 lemon to make it tart and not overly sweet. This juice is loaded with Vitamin C and will give you energy to get (and keep) you going all day! This juice is also a crowd pleaser so feel free to make and share this juice with your family and friends. Use all organic ingredients if possible 🙂
- 3 oranges
- 1/4 pineapple
- 2 apples
- 1/4 lemon
Clementines are not safe in our house. I bought a box of them and between my husband and I they were gone in four days. I don’t know how many the box holds but I would estimate probably about 35. They were perfect to have for breakfast, as a snack and as you will see in today’s post, they were a great addition to this salad. This salad was incredibly filling, delicious, crunchy, sweet and a little tangy thanks to the yummy dressing I used.
Here’s the simple recipe:
- Organic mixed greens
- Organic baby carrots
- Organic cherry tomatoes, halved
- One clementine
Yup! That’s it! Simple is best. I used Cindy’s Kitchen Sundried Tomato dressing which I purchased at my local Whole Foods Market but feel free to use whatever dressing you have on hand or better yet make one.
Clementines have Folate, Potassium, Fiber and are of course loaded with Vitamin C.

I was craving a green juice today and made this tasty juice that looks anything but green. In fact, I’m not fond of its color but it packs some serious nutrient power so whatever! I purchased some collard greens at my local supermarket a few days ago that were calling my name. I’m sure I’m not the only weirdo that sees a gorgeous veggie in the market and just has to have them. That’s how I felt about these collards when I laid eyes on them. They were fresh, large, leafy and the most gorgeous shade of green.
I LOVE Collard Greens or what I grew up referring to as Sukuma Wiki, google that! Collards and Kale are definitely my favorite greens. I grew up eating them sauteed with onions and tomatoes. My mouth is watering just thinking about them. But given that this is a juicing blog and I was craving one I thought I would create a juice around them. It just refused to become green though thanks to the carrots. Go carotene! I also was excited to drink a veggie juice out of the glass in the picture. It was a wedding favor from a wedding I attended two weeks ago and I can’t say I’ve ever been more excited about a favor. Silly, I know!
Collard greens are loaded with Vitamin A, C and K, along with calcium, potassium and omega 3 fatty acids. Greens are definitely nature’s secret weapon. Here’s one recipe that helps you drink your greens and get filled up on these nutrients.
- 2-3 large collard green leaves, thouroughly washed, stem and all!
- 5-6 carrots
- 1 apple
- 1 inch piece of ginger
~Juice & Enjoy!~

This is probably the simplest and sweetest of all juices!
Purchase organic oranges if possible as they contain many more nutrients per orange and are therefore cheaper if that’s what you’re going for when you buy you’re fruits and vegetables. Quality over quantity, right? Wash, peel and quarter you’re oranges and make sure to use a low setting on the juicer as they are soft and require less power to juice. Juice oranges that are room-temperature to get more juice out of them or soak them in warm water for several minutes if they are out of the refrigerator.
This juice is full of vitamin C and tastes a million times better than any store-bought pasteurized artificially-ripened and plucked in the year 2000 orange juice. LOL!. Homemade fresh orange juice is just so easy, so delicious, so full of vitamins and enzymes that you’re bound to appreciate and enjoy. It can sometimes be too sweet for me so I add some pure filtered water in half-and-half proportions and enjoy 🙂
