Trying a cleanse, want to jumpstart your day, or need a post-workout treat? These juices and smoothies satisfy.

Smoothies, juices, and more

Just about everyone loves a freshly pressed juice or refreshing smoothie—what’s not to like? They taste great, pack a serious punch when it comes to vitamins and minerals, and offer a healthy way to boost your energy. Plus you can be as creative as you want, mixing and matching your favorite fruits, veggies, and add-ins. Your made-to-order drink can be silky smooth, thick and creamy, or even have a bit of texture.

Spiced green tea smoothie

Here’s another way to sip healthy green tea: as a smoothie! Pair this sweet and spicy drink with a few ounces of lean protein—some sliced turkey, for example—for a complete afternoon snack.

One serving will get you 3 grams of fiber (thanks to its secret ingredient, pear!). Plus, it contains cayenne pepper, which may help curb appetite and give your metabolism a boost.

Banana-Maple Smoothie
