10 Healthy Juicing and Smoothie Recipes for Consecration

We’re down to the last few days of the annual January Consecration, but it’s never too late to begin a healthier lifestyle. We’ve complied some popular fruit and vegetable juice and smoothie combinations to inspire you.  Try these, or create your own!

“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits” – Psalm 103(KJV)

JUICE smoothie

Creamy goodness: Banana-blueberry smoothie.

When we think of fasting, we often don’t think of juicing or smoothies as a “green meal”.   But juicing and smoothies can have many benefits.  Juices can be a great way to add nutrients to your diet, and to easily absorb vitamins.  Certain elements like ginger and pineapple can reduce inflammation, and we can also add spices such as cinnamon for added benefits and flavor.

For many, the idea of vegetable juicing may be a bit challenging, especially to beginners  who are starting a consecration for the first time.  But with a simple blender or juicer and a few of our favorite fruits, you’ll find that adding fresh juices and smoothies are a great, easy way to better health.

Below we’ve listed 10 popular juicing and smoothie combinations and recipes that taste fresh and yummy, but will offer you more nutrients and vitamins at consecration time: or any time of the year.
