Juice and Smoothie Recipes

During my juicing moon (like honey moon but when I started drinking lots of juice and smoothies) I collected a ton of recipes from friends, books, websites, my experiments. I found these recipes really helpful when I was starting out and to give me ideas. Now however I just pick a variety of veggies from my fridge and through them  in my juicer and drink up. I feel like a chemist when I am concocting a nourishing treat for myself. So let these inspire you. The longer that I have been juicing the more I cut back on fruit so I dont drink as much sugar and to keep my juicer from getting as sticky. Hope you enjoy these and get your juice buzzz on. I highlighted some of my favorites.

  1. Hi,
    My name is Charles. I'm offering my domain for sale:

    My asking price is $799 (Negotiable)

    The name is SEO keyword-targeted, and it is an exact match to what people are searching for on the internet.

    There has been a significant rise in online searches for the terms "Juice" and "Smoothies". Averaging 100 daily searches as per google:

    The market is huge, but there are many competitors. Over 100k results for the exact word "Juice and Smoothies" - imagine how well placed you'd be, by owning this name.

    It is my sound belief that anyone seeking to stamp their authority in the Juice and Smoothies niche should take ownership of this name because it is "Keyword-specific" to what people are searching for on google. You can have the domain redirect visitors to your existing website, or establish a new website with it. Its your choice! 

    I intend contacting other hemp businesses in the region, and would appreciate if you'd give me your feedback at your earliest convenience. 
    You can also visit:  - to take ownership of the name today.
