The Immunity One
This fan favorite is must during the holidays, when we often don't give our bodies the rest they deserve. It can be easy to go-go-go during the holidays and not give our bodies the rest it deserves. Full of Vitamin-C rich foods such as oranges, pineapples, carrots, and lemons, this juice also features turmeric, a root that’s benefits are almost immeasurable. Pro tip: Add camu camu, an Amazonian berry, for some extra protection. Your immune system will thank you.
This charcoal lemonade packs a super detoxifying punch. But don’t worry — activated charcoal is not the same kind of charcoal that's on your grill. This charcoal is high in carbon and made from organic materials that are totally safe to consume. This little black juice binds to toxins in the body, like gross pesticides and other chemicals that you don’t want swimming around in your stomach, and helps flush them out. Too many holiday treats? Pick up the Black Juice.
The Hardcore One
You may not be eating many veggies during the holidays (and if you are, then more power to you), but this drink ensures that your body is receiving all the vital nutrients it needs. Superfoods such as spirulina, kale, and spinach pack a huge vitamin K punch, activating proteins inside our bodies that are needed for healthy cells and blood clotting. Celery is a sneaky superfood that is alkalizing, may help prevent cancer, and can act as a healthy diuretic. Get mega-hydrated from the cucumber while it provides a blast of B vitamins to help combat anxiety, and finish off with the alkalizing effect of the lemon.
Cashew Milk Latte
We all know last-minute shopping is draining, but this latte is filled with good-for-you ingredients for an extra pep in your step to power through. It's so energizing (in a good way), that it might become your new go-to coffee long after the holidays.
The Energy One
Not a coffee person, but still need a pick-me-up? Beets are a great source of energy, containing healthy carbs that your body needs without the sluggish side effects. This mix is ideal pre-workout — and we all know we're going to be hitting the gym more once January hits.
