Tia's Spring is CallingTia’s “Spring is Calling”

Who needs a V8 when you have Dr. Smoothie? I am not known to be a very health conscious person and veggies seem to elude my daily meals, but when the sun comes out and the weather becomes warmer I tend to pull out my walking shoes, clean out all the pizza from my fridge, and go on the liquid diet of smoothies and water. With this drink, I really wanted to get the most out of what I was drinking. Not only did I want to cut calories, I also wanted to add more nutrition, and keep it tasting great!

Yield: 1, 16 oz. Drink

Ingredients:
•  1 Scoop Dr. Smoothie Veggie Blend Add-in
•  4 oz. Pacific Natural Foods Rice Milk

Directions: In a blender add liquids first then powders and ice. Blend until smooth. Enjoy this tasty beverage and feel good about what you are drinking!

Larissa's Mojito MocktailLarissa’s “Mojito Mocktail”

As spring approaches my palate cries for something refreshing and cool to sip on. I get tired of drinking water to stay hydrated while things heat up, don’t you? This drink fills the void for me! Especially being pregnant in the warmer months, and being unable to indulge in the (ahem) not so mocktail mojitos.

Yield: 1, 16 oz. Drink

Ingredients:
•  Two Sachets of Numi Moroccan Mint Tea
•  **Fresh Lime Juice

In your serving cup add the juice of half a lime, agave, fresh mint leaves, and tea concentrate. Fill a cup with ice, and top with soda water. Stir well so all ingredients are equally distributed. Garnish with a slice of fresh lime and additional mint leaves.
**If fresh lime juice is unavailable, feel free to replace one bag of mint tea for a lime tea (such as Numi Dry Desert Lime.)
