One more time now. We’re wrapping up the month with our girl, Kris Carr (can you believe September has flown by so fast?) and sharing a giveaway of five signed copies of her new book, Crazy Sexy Juice. Enter below! We’ve been juicing through our copy of the book and – trust – you need these recipes! We’re loving this recipe for our new fall obsession, a kale almond milk you’re going to love…

As I wrap up my last piece as September guest editor (so much fun and such an honor!), I want to bring our discussion back full circle to the importance of self-care. We talked about how fall can be such a busy time and I know my world is nutty right now – my team and I are preparing for the launch of my new book, and it’s Crazy (Sexy) Town, U.S.A. over here. Whether you’re busy with kiddos, a demanding career or a personal project (or all three!), ya gotta take care of yourself, honey. We just can’t push ourselves to achieve our goals without tending our body and soul gardens first. With that in mind, I have a couple of things I want to leave you with…

First, a recipe. This is from Crazy Sexy Juice, and I love it so much because it incorporates and represents so many things I stand for and support: relaxation, enjoyment, nourishment and getting in your greens! Curl up and wind down with this yummy beverage (warm it on the stove!) for a blissful post-dinner treat. Bonus: It’s a wonderful addition to smoothies, too.

I know what you’re thinking: green milk?! It may seem like a nutty idea, but why not infuse your go-to almond milk with a little green goodness? This milk is perfect for sipping, and if you use it in green smoothies, you’ll be doubling up on plant power.

Pro Tip: To make the milk, follow my basic almond milk formula in Crazy Sexy Juice, adding kale and spinach in the blending step. Then you strain and serve as you normally would. The resulting mixture is sweet and creamy, and even though you’ll barely taste the veggies, your body will thank you for them!

Second, I’m offering a signed copy of Crazy Sexy Juice to five readers! It’s loaded with over a hundred juice, smoothie and nut-milk recipes ready to boost your health and tickle your taste buds. Talk about self-care!

I also wanted to let you know I’m throwing in some amazing bonuses for all who pre-order the book – my new digital meditation album, Self-Care for Busy People, and access to the Livestream lecture and Q&A at my book launch party! Some very special guests will be there… you don’t wanna miss it! You’ll get a video recording of the event, too. Find out more here.

I’m grateful for the opportunity to jam with the Chalkboard community – it’s been a blast! Take good care of yourselves, dear ones. I’m cheering you on…

Love you!

Crazy Sexy Green Milk
