This is a guest post submitted by The New York juice brand, Love Grace. Love Grace was launched in 2011 with the mission to help people achieve optimal nutrition and overall well-being. Now, less than two years later, founders Jake Mabanta and Carissa-Ann Santos, have grown a blossoming business with their juices, smoothies and elixirs now available nationwide. Much of the brand’s success is due to Mabanta’s chef background, which inspires fresh, delicious blends like Green Sunshine and Super Cider. Below is one of Mabanta’s favorite refreshing summer juice inspirations that is perfect for post-yoga poolside sipping. This super easy recipe tastes just like the favorite frosty treat, but it’s so much better for you! Cantaloupe, orange and macadamia nuts make this a smoothie packed with antioxidants, beta-carotene and vitamin C. Try this as a sweet treat or a mid-day refresher.
