Yellow Apple Juice and Green Smoothie with Almond on the go! (earth's own

Beautiful day to you all :o)

Yellow Apple Juice (in slow juicer, with the stopper off so there is more pulp)

2 yellow apples (bio if not take off peel)
1 lemon without skin
ginger (i put in big as a thumb it s kind of strong)

Taaaasty! (Totally forgot to take a pic!)

Green Smoothie

2 big handful of baby spinach (put less if not used to it)
One 250mL Almond on the go!
1 banana
3 leaves of mint
1tbl spoon of chia seeds
1/4 over the top teaspoon of Maca

Agave to taste (i usually put dates, or date paste but I didn't have any, you could put honey in there as well, but honey taste strong so go easy if you put it in) (i know there is controversy over agave, i'm not getting into that subject, you use it or you don't)
pinch of sea salt
pinch of cayenne pepper (I know but it gives it a great kick!)

So I picked up a sample of Almond on the go while a the Salon and decided to use it to make this smoothie. The tasted is good, the stuff is not too tick. Keep in mind that this is a fortified almond BEVERAGE and is NOT a source of protein (see the ingredients here) there is something called Tricalcium Phosphate in there too.

Overall I was great, I still prefer to make my own almond milk ;o)
