We’re sharing a smoothie recipe every day this week. Why? Because it’s January, that first month of the new year when we’re all a little more health-conscious. And because Cindy Palusamy, founder of London juice bar The Juicery, has published a cookbook of over 150 drinkable jolts of wellness (Rizzoli). Called Juice Blend Taste, it features recipes for fruit and vegetable juices, booster shots, smoothies, soups, nut milks, herbal sodas, and teas, culled from over 50 of the world’s top nutrition experts. So sip away!

Makes one serving
This is an all-in-one kick-start of a smoothie. Packed with antioxidants, omega-3s, vitamins, and minerals, it’s also delicious enough to be a daily routine: nutty and sweet, with a hint of berry-tart freshness. CoQ10 is an antioxidant that the body produces, though often not enough of, leading to a lack of energy and general fatigue. Adding some to your smoothie will help increase your energy levels by allowing cells to function as efficiently as possible.
