Jalapeno and Cilantro Green Juice with Spiralized Carrot Garnish

Throwing a party this fall and want to be creative and healthy? For a quick fix, use your spiralizer to make garnishes for the drinks you’re serving!

In true Inspiralized fashion, I offer you a healthy and creative green juice to serve to your guests…. just pour into a champagne flute, wine glass or hipster mason jar and let everyone be impressed. The carrot against the bright green shouts “I’m healthy!” and offers an after-sip crunch… think of it like a healthy tortilla strip for this Mexican-inspired green juice.

You can put the adorable spirals on the side of your glass or place it IN the glass so that when your guest is done drinking, they can munch on a juice-soaked carrot! Go a step further and place the garnish veggie on a toothpick and place on the top of the glass or inside.

If you’re looking for something more cocktail-y, try these garnish ideas, using your spiralizer: 

  • Mint, Cucumber Martini with Cucumber Spiral Garnish
  • Appletini with Apple Spiral Garnish
  • Carrot Ginger Bourbon with Carrot Spiral Garnish 
  • Bloody Mary with Zucchini Spiral Garnish

But don’t worry, my green juice recipe can be alcohol-friendly. Yup, if you really want to be different, serve these alongside a shot of tequila… the jalapeno and cilantro will match perfectly to the flavors in the tequila… did I test this myself, alone? The world will never know…

yum! how do you think this would taste with the pulp, i.e. made in a vitamix?
Yes, definitely - it would add a bit of texture! Try it and let me know how it comes out. Thanks for the comment, Emily!

remember a couple weeks ago when I sat in front of this same mirror, tucked my long hair into a sweater and debated whether to chop it all off or not? 💇🏻‍♀️ I think we all know what that decision was 🤪⁣

this is still by far the coziest sweater I own and they sell it in a yellow that's perfect for spring and I'm debating whether or not to get it 😬 I've been in a funk all week and can't seem to shake it. retail therapy moment?!⁣

jokes aside, I need a vacation. more specifically, I need 🍹 on a 🏝... anyone else?  ⁣

actually, I put the @oculus goggles on the other night to go to a virtual beach, and I almost started crying... the sounds of the seagulls, the little turtle crawling on the sand, the bright sun, the sounds of the waves crashing, the white stand, the wind and the palm trees.... I had no idea how therapeutic the ocean and the beach are for me!⁣

I've thought a lot about where our first "trip" will be once it's safe to travel again, and I've decided on a beach resort. will you do something adventurous or something lazy and beachy? http://liketk.it/39bMq #liketkit @liketoknow.it

making a batch of this VEGAN PUMPKIN SNACKING LOAF today 🍞! I love to have a few mini loafs in the freezer to easily defrost for breakfasts or snacks for the kids, but also for myself - slathered with nut butter and a little sprinkle of hemp seeds 🥜 or some honey, butter and cinnamon for the kids 🍯🧈  ⁣

grab the recipe on the blog! happy monday! 🙌🏼⁣
