EmBodyDream™ Beverages Garlicy Green juice makes 1-1.5 quarts 1 pound of your favorite greens 1 cucumber, chopped 3 carrots, chopped 1 garlic clove 1 tablespoon hemp oil 1-2 cups water 1 Place cucumber, greens, garlic clove and carrots in a blender* with the water. Blend until ingredients break down into a thick mixture. 2 Strain the mixture in a nut mylk bag into a large bowl. Squeeze the bag to get all the juices out of the pulp. 3 Pour juice into a glass and add hemp oil. *You can use a juicer instead of a blender. I use a blender because the clean-up is faster for the amount of juices I make. Also, please note if you use greens that are heavier in weight (kale, collards, etc.) a high-speed blender (like a Vitamix) will work better at breaking down the greens. Basil Limeade 1 bunch sweet basil leaves (about a handful) 3 cups water 1 cup agave nectar 5 limes, juiced EmBodyDream™ 1 In a pitcher, combine water, agave nectar, basil leaves and lime juice. Cover the top of the pitcher with plastic wrap. 2 Place the pitcher outside in the sun for at least an hour. 3 Remove basil before drinking. Tip #1: Fill an ice cube tray with chopped basil, and then cover with water and freeze. Use the basil ice cubes in your drink. Tip #2: Instead of sweet basil, try lemon or lime basil. PEACHES AND CREME Peaches are a good source of Vitamins A, C and E as well as high in fiber. 1 peach, pitted, chopped 1 banana 1 cup young coconut water 1 cup ice cubes 1/4 cup agave nectar Blend peach, banana, coconut water, and agave nectar until well mixed. Add ice cubes. Servings: 2 Coconut Milk EmBodyDream™ meat from 1 Thai Young coconut 1 c coconut water or pure water 1/4 c agave nectar 1 t almond extract 1/2 t nutmeg, plus extra Blend coconut meat and water in a blender until smooth. Add agave nectar, almond extract and nutmeg. Garnish with extra nutmeg This milk is a bit thicker in consistency than almond milk Green Smoothie The theory behind Green Smoothies is to get the nutritious greens (spinach, kale, lettuce, etc.) into your body in the most effective way without compromising your taste buds. The recipe I am providing is basic. The possibilities are endless. Green Smoothie (2 quarts) 2 c spinach 2 c water 1 c ice 2 very ripe banana 2 peaches 2 T Agave Nectar, or to taste* Place spinach and water in blender and blend. I like to add the spinach first to make sure all the spinach is thoroughly blended. Add the peaches, banana, Agave Nectar and ice. I add each ingredient at a time, giving them their time in blender spotlight. If you drink Green Smoothies on a daily basis, eventually you do without the extra sweetener. Your body will just crave the greens and the rest will be fillers. EmBodyDream™ Here's the Green Smoothie formula Greens (the leafy stuff) + Your choice of fresh (or frozen) fruit + water + banana + ice = Yummy and very nutritious drink. Orangesicle Breakfast Drink 1 c coconut water 1/4 c agave nectar 1 orange, peeled, quartered 1 t hemp oil 1/2 t vanilla extract Tray of ice cubes Combine coconut water, agave nectar, orange quarters, hemp and vanilla in a blender.

Pour mixture into metal container and place in the freezer for about 40 minutes. When it is semi-solid (with liquid beneath the surface), mash it up with a fork. Pour in a chilled glass for a Slushy drink. To create the sorbet, Instead of pouring into a glass, take the mixture and refreeze again. When frozen, place in a blender and process until smooth.

Cilantro Shake * Pink Grapefruit * Cucumber * Cilantro * Lime * Pineapple * Agave Nectar or stevia * Vanilla Extract EmBodyDream™ * BIG pinch of Cinnamon * Pinch of salt Directions In a blender, (Vitamix if you have one) throw a pink peeled grapefruit, peeled cucumber, lots and lots and lots of cilantro - like half a bunch, a lime, some pineapple, agave nectar or stevia, vanilla extract, BIG pinch of cinnamon, and pinch of salt. More Love for Cilantro Free radicals are everywhere - in the water we drink, food we eat, and in the air we breathe. The main defense to free radicals (coming from pollution, x-rays, radiation, chemicals, heavy metals) are antioxidants. Cilantro leaves are rich in calcium, iron, carotenes, and vitamin C, which it happens are great antioxidants. A Japanese investigator, Yoshiaki Omura, has made the revolutionary discovery that cilantro can mobilize mercury and other toxic metals from the central nervous system if large enough amounts are consumed daily. Reuters reports that cilantro contains a chemical which has been found to kill the Salmonella bacteria that cause foodborne illness. The heavy metal detox capabilities of cilantro should also make it of great use in the treatment of depression, Alzheimer's disease, lack of concentration and other related disorders. In other words, this herb can apparently help to keep you happy, focused, and sane! Just eat it, don't smoke it.
