OMBRÉ SMOOTHIES WITH GENESIS JUICE

OMBRE SMOOTHIES WITH GENESIS JUICE

Hey guys! We're a few days away from the start of spring and who else can't wait? Wait a second, I can't answer that, it looks like mother nature sure can... it's looking to another week of rain for us portland folksh well. to combat some winter blues I've blended up some colorful ombré smoothies using my favorite cold pressed strawberry apple genesis organic juice

Besides looking forward to daylight savings, what are you doing to chase these winter blues?

Head below to find out how to layer an ombre smoothie!


OMBRÉ SMOOTHIES WITH GENESIS ORGANIC STRAWBERRY APPLE JUICE

DIRECTIONS:

INGREDIENTS:

First layer: Blend the Strawberry Aapple Genesis Organic Juice, 1 acai packet, ice, and 2oz coconut milk until smooth. Pour out 1/3 of your cups space and freeze for 10-15 minutes. *freezing between the layers will help to keep the layers separated while we build them, otherwise you'll wind up with the layers bleeding (yep, I totally forgot to freeze, thus my layers bled). Reserve remaining smoothie -we will start diluting this base.

Second layer: To the remaining base add 2 oz of coconut milk, and 1/2 c. yogurt (or in my case 4 cubes). Blend until smooth and lump free. Pour out enough smoothie to build an additional layer on top of the beginning layer, sticking with 1/3 of the cups space. Freeze and do not rinse out your blender.

Third layer: To achieve a lighter color I recommend pouring off a little of the remaining base (about 1/3 of a cup), and to that base add 4 tbsp. full-fat coconut milk. blend until smooth and pour on top of the the previously frozen base. ta-da! Add toppings and enjoy immediately!

I hope yours turns out better looking than mine, because Y O U will remember to freeze between the layers!

2/3 c. Strawberry Apple Genesis Organic Juice

1 pkg. acai

1c. ice

4 oz coconut milk, divided

1/2 c. yogurt**

4 tbsp. full fat coconut milk

Sssorted toppings:

strawberries, kiwi, chia seed pudding

**for making smoothies i like to freeze extra yogurt in ice cube trays, by doing so i don't have to worry about expired yogurt and it works great in smoothies. 


BUEN PROVECHO!

HOLIDAY COCKTAIL FEATURING GENESIS JUICE

Woah! The holiday's sure did creep up this year, as did our recent snowfall and subsequent freezing rain!

With the current pace of the holiday's rushing by I sure hope you've all decided on your New Year's Eve plans and outfits because as soon as the christmas countdown ends, the countdown to the midnight ball drop starts!

Today I'm sharing a holiday cocktail recipe for gin lovers featuring Oregon-made Genesis Organic Juice.

Genesis Organic Juice has quickly become one of my go-to items because it is raw and it's never heated, instead it's pressurized using a high pressure process (hpp) making the juice safe to sell and consume while preserving flavor, color and nutrition.

Since the holidays are here, as are the numerous office treats and holiday parties why not give yourself a little nutritional boost in your holiday punch... here's an easy punch using Genesis Organic Juice in ginger lemonade and pacific northwest apple.
