Hello everyone!

Brand new to juicing. But I figured if I'm going to do it, I'm going to go all in.

My daily recipe is as follows and i'd love some feedback from experienced users.

My base is either kale or spinach.

I add to that a small handful of a frozen 5 fruit mixed bag (I actually have 2 bags of differnet 5 fruit blends, so I get 10 different fruits including cherries, black berries, blueberries, strawberries, pinnapples, apples, peaches, grapes etc)

Added to that is a small handfull 5 veggies frozen mixed bag (broccoli, green breans, carrots, yellow carrots, wax beans)

I add a 1/2 avacado fresh and slice up a raw beet and put in a few slices/chunks of that in as well. Also the stems of the beet go in, good for the eyes ive read.

I splash some extra virgin olive oil in there.

I do mill up flax seed, sunflower seed, and the superfood superboost. I mill up about a cup at a time and keep it in the freezer. And in my shake I add atleast a tablespoon of that mixture.

Finally I do a 50/50 mixture of water and pineapple juice to mask some of the flavor and make it a little sweeter for my taste.

* sometimes I throw in a pro-biotic powder

 

And there you have it. I would love some feedback. Overdoing it? I use the frozen fruit and veggie mix because it will keep longer then buying fresh and keeps the cost down. Not to mention it makes the shake really cold which I prefer. I dont measure things precisely. I am open to suggestions and love my new Nutribullet so far. Been making one of these shakes daily.

First of all, what are your goals for Blasting Tyler? That may help us help you out with what to keep, change, or alter. This sounds like a lot of ingredients and may be too high in calories if you're looking to lose weight or it may be too high in sugar if you have blood sugar issues. Or it could be just a super healthy elixir :)
My goals are to simply eat healthier. I make this first thing in the morning. I am 29 years old and in pretty good shape. Blood sugar is in check though I couldn't hurt to loose a few pounds. But more specifically I'm in the gym to add muscle primarily not lose weight. I realize the pineapple juice really does add calories/sugar, but I need it to drown out the beet taste. Also adding the avocados tend to make the shake a little more bland and he juice counters that. Honestly before I started blasting, I literally didn't eat veggies. I love knowing now that I am getting them in my diet regularly.
