Re-Boot Green Juice to Fire Up Your Day!

Re-Boot Green Juice to Fire Up Your DaySome mornings need a quick re-boot, like this super delicious, nutrient packed apple, kale, lime, basil green juice!

Do you ever have those mornings where, no matter how many cups of coffee you knock back, there’s just no energy flowing at all?

Mr. Spicy said it best this morning after I stumbled back in to the bedroom, 2 cups of coffee down, 2 breakfasts made, 2 lunches packed, and multiple school papers signed, with a dazed look on my face.

Not firing all your cylinders this morning babe?


Did someone swap out the regular for decaf???

Maybe I can blame the rain…

Or, maybe I can blame these gluten-free Bacon Banana Pancakes with Salted Macadamia Nuts I inhaled yesterday morning at a pre-Gluten-Free Wellness Retreat planning meeting at the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort

Gluten-Free Bacon Banana Salted Macadamia Nut Pancakes from the Aviara Hotel in San DiegoNote to my gluten-free friends in San Diego or traveling to San Diego, I highly recommend the Park Hyatt Aviara for not only lots of delicious gluten-free menu options, but also because the chef and staff have been well-trained about food intolerances and food allergies, and take all precautions to avoid cross contamination.  Of course you should always address any dietary concerns with the chef and staff when dining out.

Or maybe, just maybe, some mornings simply need a little re-booting to fire up your day…

Apple Basil Kale Lime Green JuiceLike this super delicious fresh pressed Apple Kale Lime Basil Green Juice which was absolutely, positively, just the ticket to energize my day!

Oh, and it’s SO tasty, I think I might even get my kids to drink it.

If they were blindfolded 🙂

The apple adds the perfect touch of sweetness, the basil is pure morning aromatherapy, the kale is, well kale, and super nutritious, and the lime adds a fabulous hint of tart.

  1. Hi there,

    This is a wonderful recipe. I loved this so much that I featured it in my best of post 33 HEALTHY Green Drinks For St Patrick’s Day.
    I have not shared the exact recipe, only one image and a small quote from here.
    All credits are given to you and linked back to this page.

    Have a fantastic day!

  2. Toys can be very powerful educational tools so don’t
    underestimate their power to teach. Toys offer dogs a way
    to stay active and entertained. Points can be awarded for
    healthy food choices and similarly points may be subtracted for less healthy foods such as chocolates and candy.

  3. Reason #3: A Treadmill Can Help You Burn MORE Calories by
    Increasing Your Exercise Time. if you need to know the difference between those two, scroll to
    the top of the article and read both of my full articles on using whey protein for weight
    loss and muscle growth) which will telegraph to your body to
    keep producing nitrogen to make sure that the nutrients you are taking in will travel quickly and effectively to your muscles.
    Eat more vegetables, fruit, lean meats, and whole grains instead
    of processed foods’these are tastier, will leave you feeling full longer, and are loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants
    that will keep your body healthy without adding to your weight.

  4. Hi Sharon-So glad you stopped by! My first suggestion for easing in to green smoothies, is to go low on the green, and higher on the “not green” 🙂 This particular juice, you really don’t taste the “green” because of the sweetness of the apple, and I think a little sour always helps too. You might want to try this Kale Frosty which is a favorite of mine. I do 2 cups of kale, but if you start with 1 cup, plus lots of ice, I think you will barely notice the “green” at all. Cheers!

  5. Super zippy combo Miss EA. I am one of the unfortunates who can’t have caffeine except in small (ineffective) amounts. I rely on strong green juices sometimes – as well as my matcha tea (just a little caffeine). I love the basil in this. I usually use mint in something like this (kale/apple juices) but basil, hmmm. Must give that a go.
