It is a popular choice with vegans and makes a great base for smoothies, milkshakes, soups, or as a dairy alternative in cooking. It can also be used as a milk alternative for coffee.

By Stanka Vukelić Photo: Stanka Vukelić Detox juice recipe: Apple Beet Juice This is a very simple to make juice, which helps boosting your immune system and detoxifying your liver.

By Stanka Vukelić Photo: Stanka Vukelić Healthy smoothie recipe Here’s a wonderful, tasty, and healthy smoothie recipe for your breakfast or snack – great idea to energize you for the day. A smoothie is a total meal in a glass, with alkalinizing greens, plenty of ripe bananas and pineapples, to get a smooth creamy sweetness. We are big smoothie fans, and like to drink – at least – one a day. For doing so, we sometimes buy 10 pineapples, and we cut them all at once, and put them into a freezer, packed into convenient little bags (reusable), which serve as a basis for making two smoothies, in which we add some bananas and some greens like fennel fronds.
