I found these at this site!

Power Gulp

This green goodie sneaks in a dose of iron (you need extra during your period and pregnancy), key for healthy blood cell and muscle function. It also delivers more than your daily rec of vitamin K—another must for blood and bone health.

Ingredients: Kale, green grapes, cucumber, Granny Smith apple

Total Health Booster

A swig of this vitamin-packed (A, B, C, E) beverage fuels your whole body. It even fights aging: Lutein plus vitamins A and C up collagen production (for strong bones and younger-looking skin).

Antioxidant Supreme

Antioxidants in berries boast potent anti-aging benefits.

Energy Upper

Natural fruit sugars give you an instant boost, and electrolyte-loaded coconut water helps keep you hydrated.

Immune Booster

Ward off colds with this vitamin bomb! The kiwis alone pack nearly twice your daily vitamin C—and the citrus delivers even more of the cold-busting vitamin.

Calories: 156

Post-Workout Refueler

Almonds’ protein helps build and repair muscle. Plus, the potassium (twice as much as you get in two bananas) balances your electrolytes and fluids.

Detox

High-fiber root veggies and fruit keep things moving through the digestive tract, while ginger calms your stomach.

They also gave this tip to turn the juice into a smoothie: Combine 1 cup juice from any recipe, 1 cup ice cubes, 1/2 cup low-fat plain yogurt, and 1 medium peeled banana in a blender. Purée until smooth.
