My day in NYC ♡

IMG_1256

I arrived to NYC last night and have had a wonderful day in the big apple so far.

IMG_1285I finally got to go to the Butcher’s Daughter! A juice bar/ cafe that I have been wanting to go to for a while now…..mmm doesn’t the food look amazing?!

The Butcher’s Daughter is strictly vegetarian and non dairy.

Most of their items are vegan and gluten free!

We later went to Dominque Ansel Bakery where I indulged in a frozen smore!

(yes that is marshmallow on my mouth,

I actually did not realize that until now HAHA)

The frozen marshmallow is a roasted marshmallow with ICE CREAM INSIDE!!!

AHHHHHHHH. This was the bomb.

I love you I love you I love you New York.

with so much love,

I go to the North End (Little Italy) often and I always pass by this really cute Juice shop so I decided to give it a try 🙂

I liked that they had so much variety on their menu from Juices to Smoothies to Acai Bowls

I tried the smoothie called “Woah Nellie”  which had banana, strawberry, raspberry, yogurt, coconut, apple juice and almond milk

MMMM, right?!

It was delicious, as a lover of all fruits… I love that they added so many fruits to this drink

My Daily Morning Juice Routine Recipe ♡

     IMG_0890IMG_0889-1

I like to  make vegetable juices in the morning, its definitely a staple for a great morning 🙂 it boosts up my metabolism and gives me the nutrients and energy to start out my day!

  Soooooo I thought I’d share with you guys my recipe ❤

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

2 handfuls of spinach

1 handful of kale

1/2 apple

Coconut Water (sometimes i like to substitute almond milk instead)

Sprinkle some chia seeds

If you’d like a thicker consistency you can add greek yogurt as well

(I used a vitamix but you can use any type of blender)

its soooo simple, filling, and yummy

it might taste really bitter (because I put more vegetables than fruits) but if you want a sweeter taste you can add more apples and fruits to your liking 🙂

Hope you enjoy it as much as I doooooooo 🙂

ps. I would love to try some recipes if anyone has any recommendations!

with so much love,
