Avocado Ice


A liquid, Japanese-inspired guacamole on ice -- nutritiously delicious and refreshing. We love it.

  • 1/4 head iceberg lettuce, outer leaves removed
  • 1 lime, peeled
  • 1/4 cucumber
  • 1/2 avocado, peeled and stoned
  • 1 tsp wasabi (optional)
  • 3 ice cubes
Juice the lettuce, lime and cucumber. Transfer to a blender and blend with the avocado and wasabi. Serve over ice.
  • Avocados are the most energy dense and nutrient-rich fruit per calorie.
  • Wasabi, which is also called Japanese horseradish, is available in specialty stores and Asian markets in both paste and powder form. It has a hot, fiery, pungent flavor. Take care.


Liquid Thai


Unfortunately we can't serve this juice in true Thai style (plastic bags, roadside), but if you close your eyes and sip, you're practically there.

  • 2 carrots, tops and bottoms removed
  • 1 handful of coriander
  • 4 fl oz (125 ml) coconut milk
Juice the carrots. Blend with coriander and coconut milk.
  • Coconut milk is not the liquid floating around in the center of the nut, but a mix of grated, unsweetened coconut flesh heated with water or scalded milk, then strained. This can be made at home or bought canned.


Coconut dream


A strawberry and coconut lover's dream. Imagine you're on a beach on a balmy summer's afternoon.

  • 2 handfuls strawberries, hulled
  • 1 banana, peeled
  • 2 Tbsp coconut milk
  • 4 ice cubes
Juice the strawberries. Transfer to a blender with the banana, coconut milk and ice. Blend thoroughly. Serve topped with freshly shaved coconut if desired.
  • Strawberries supply the super-nutrient, ellagic acid, and vitamin C. Both coat the lining of the lungs and fight free radicals.
  • For an even healthier alternative, 2 tablespoons of silken tofu can be substituted for the coconut milk.
