As every day is a new start, we usually make mistakes of not doing anything new in it. We go back to every day, old habits that we are aware could be better and different. As soon as we wake up, we go straight into the kitchen and we hold that cup of coffee with our eyes still closed!

It has been a while now that kale has been part of our lives us thinking this was the remedy to body greatness. Well, in part it is. But, anything green also shares equal goodness that is in all of the green vegetables. And having a mixed vegetable diet is of the utmost importance on a daily basis. Tell the kids they will grow into The Hulk, you will see them down this drink. This is perfect as a detox also if perhaps the night before you were a little heavy-handed if you know what we mean. You can also add fresh green herbs such as parsley, coriander, or anything that tickles your fancy. Give it a go.
7. Apple Carrot Beet Smoothie

A classic that is here to stay, and for some good reason too; also known as the ABC for very obvious reasons. 10 points for those getting it. This smoothie is packed with antioxidants, and its flavor profile never disappoints. Remember that the skin has a lot of fiber, and fiber is what is actually really important. The juice we buy-in, for example, has almost no fiber at all and you end up drinking sugar. A proper fresh juice is thick and can be a little lumpy too, but that’s what juices are.
8. Fig & Almond Butter Smoothie

Not sure what to go for after a workout? Fed up with trying all these super expensive powders? Put your hard-earned cash into fresh fruits and vegetables. The fig season is coming, and how best to use this but in a super healthy, strength generating drink. Blending it together with almond butter will reduce the sweetness and give it a nutty flavor. This can be a dessert – why not freeze it a little, and have it like ice cream. Win-win.

Melon contains so much goodness, that it feels like eating 10 fruits in one. It has masses of nutrients from potassium to magnesium, calcium, electrolytes and reduces your blood pressure. Full in vitamin C as well, making your skin breath again with a lovely glow to it. It provides great digestive abilities thanks to the fiber it holds within itself, and yes, has over 90% water. I guess 90% of you are going to buy honeydew melon as we speak. It is that good in this smoothie. Or even on its own on a warm summery day. This is a strong last recipe.
