I am 37 Married Mother of 6 beautiful children :) I have 3 deep passions! First is seeing my husband and children thrive in all GOD has for them :) After that I am crazy wild about supernatural healing signs n wonders, miracles and the prophetic :) That list goes on and on... The 3rd would be healthy living.I call this blog "Juiced Alive" because its how I feel when I juice!Juicing and a raw diet mean a great deal to me. I am not 100% raw. I was born and raised in Alaska so I LOVE SALMON and MOOSE MEAT!! Juicing has been a big blessing to my body. I have been doing it for almost 8 yrs now. My children LOVE the hulk drink and many others :) My hope is that this blog will display that it can be simple and enjoyable. I could write pages on the benefits of juicing but I will spare you.........for now :) BLESSINGS!

Blueberry greek yogurt smoothie with lemon doTERRA essential oil


My 14 yo son Trenton said “ this smoothie is SWEET and TANGY ”. You know how teen boys can shovel EVERYTHING and the kitchen sink into their mouth??? YA they sure can and STAY THIN WITH GREAT MUSCLE TONE!! Remember those days wayyyy back when lol. Trenton’s friend was here while I made this drink. His buddy came back over today and asked for another smoothie :) That blessed me! Means one thing this smoothie is teen boy approved WOOHOO! No sugar added – now that is something to smile about. Most kids that come and see me make smoothies or fire up my juicer – they tend to stand back and do the ” WHAT IS SHE PUTTING IN THEM”  kinda arms folded up thingy. Feels great to show them you can throw down something VERY good for you that is NOT loaded with sugar :)

You know what else is cool? Trenton’s friend brought him Mom over. She spent hours in my kitchen with me :) Guess what she went out and bought? A JUICER !!!!!!!!!! She also joined the gym!! Makes my heart happy! Spread the health peeps :)


1 cup or more  frozen blueberries - fresh ones might make it sweeter
1 cup spinach
1 cup blueberry greek yogurt
handful or more of ice
1/4 to 1/2 of avocado
I used coconut milk but you could use any like flax seed, hemp, or almond milk.
3 -5 drops of lemon doTERRA essential oil

Power up your vitamix or high speed blender and tell me what you think :)


Love how the lemon gives this a twist but yet does not over power the blueberry flavor. My younger kiddo's said it tastes like blueberry lemon ice cream. Well thank you Lord I have a winner smoothie :)

You can check out my doTERRA essential oil page. I have been using so many in my smoothies. Fun to have my kids guess which oil I dropped in it.

Beets n fruit smoothie

Loved the rich color of this one. Beets are so good for you! They are the best raw. My kiddo's enjoy  raw beets sliced up with carrots + apple cider vinegar often. Now back to this smoothie :)  This one  is loaded with antioxidants, minerals, vitamins and great for your heart/blood.



I red beet
1 orange
1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 1/2 cups of ice
8 ounces of coconut milk - you could use hemp,almond, rice or flax seed milk.

I ended up throwing in a banana at the end. Figured a yellow color would be good. I bet fresh blueberries would make it sweeter. Next time  I make this I will add something green like spinach or kale. Maybe even a kiwi :)



BLESSINGS!!!

Watercess + veggie n fruit juice drink

I like the spicy flavor of this one. You know sometimes you just gotta have more spice in your life LOL!  I juiced this for dinner. My 3 yo drank half my cup! What could be better than your young kiddo's hearing the juicer fire up and running to you with their cups??? Blesses me more than I can say. Both of our older boys went to separate  pool parties today for finishing up the school year. When we arrived to pick on of them up the parents asked me to bring in our 3 lil ones. You can only imagine their JOY!!! They had a bunch o pizza  after they got out of the pool. So the juice drink was deeply enjoyed after a 111 degree hot day.



about a cup of watercress
1 bunch radishes
2 apples
7 carrots
1 piece of ginger
2 cucumbers
1 lemon
2 drops of doTERRA essential lemon oil


This combo is a hit :)

BLESSINGS!

Veggie + grapefruit juice drink

Just what a I needed!!! To be refreshed and recharged :) This juice drink made that happen quickly. I love the taste of the greens in it plus the added tangy taste of the grapefruit/lime combo. Went to the lake today with a dear friend. Our kiddo's played for a few hours in the water. I had this for dinner. After being energy sapped by the sun I sure needed this juice.


4 chard leaves
1 cucumber
8 celery ribs
1 lime
1 apple
1 grapefruit



I drank the first half really quickly then walked into my room saw my doterra lemon essential oil and dropped a couple drops in it. Gave it more of a zing.



No time to mess around I gulped it down :)

BLESSINGS!

Habanero + lemon + Ginger and Greens Juice Drink

Holy WOW hot fire juice drink! This is Lou Corona's daily juice recipe. I think I could drink it each day just so I cool like Lou :) Can't call anyone a Sissy lala for drinking this.  Even my daughter that is 7 drank this. You gotta try it.

K I did I not have the arugula to add nor did I add 3 habanero's like Lou uses. So this is what I used....




1 Habanero pepper
1 lemon
1 ginger knob
2 green apples
1 pink lady apple
2 handfuls of spinach
1 bunch of parsley
1 bunch of cilantro

Lou Corona's drink does not have spinach. He uses arugula and adds 2 more habanero's. Ya he is a real rockstar!

Let me know what you think of this drink :) It's a very flavorful drink. If I was not detoxed enough, well I sure will be now.


Happy January Detoxing.
