Martha's Favorite Green Juice

Every morning Martha drinks this immune-boosting cocktail of nutritious fruits and vegetables. Her refreshing green juice recipe allows for plenty of substitutions. Don’t have pears on hand? Add an apple instead! Have some fresh spinach or kale that needs to get used? Either works great. With this vibrant and versatile formula on hand, it’s easy to drink green.

Pineapple and Ginger Smoothie

Rating: 3.5 stars 77
Drink up! The fresh ginger in this tropical pineapple smoothie adds a layer of spice that'll give your morning a kick.

Green Machine Smoothie

Detox Cred: Starting the day with this nutrient-dense elixir is a delicious way to charge your system with nutrients. Dark leafy greens are extremely alkalizing, meaning they foster a more neutral body environment for better functioning enzymes, compared with acid-forming foods like meats and dairy.

Thyme Tea

Teatime? Try this thyme tea (actually a tisane). The herb gets steeped with coriander and fennel seeds -- a nice break from the usual herbal tea assortments.

Papaya-Ginger Smoothie

Rating: 3.5 stars 42
Papaya has a slight muskiness that makes it a good partner for both mild and assertive ingredients. Coupling it with mint gives this quick-to-fix smoothie a bright, clean taste.

Lemon-Ginger Soda

A touch of honey mellows the fresh ginger and lemon in this refreshing fizzy drink. If you make the base in advance, the soda comes together in mere seconds.
