Fitness: 5 Super Awesome Healthy Drinks


Two years ago,  I couldn’t even have dreamt of doing Headstand (Sirsasana). That was before I started my Yoga journey. A year later, I could hardly hold a headstand, even against the wall. Then came the absolute magical moment when I found balance without any support. This whole journey has helped me find my strengths, amazing me once in a while how much one can achieve through practice. When you stop listening to sceptics, ignore all the negative vibes, you realize that Peace lies within you.
While I was at my parents’ place for two weeks, I finished off a bag of rice and probably even consumed all the fishes of the river Brahmaputra πŸ˜‹ Even though my parents eat all boiled stuff and hardly use oil or salt, I still ended up adding 2 inches to my waist πŸ˜… Now that I am back, I can resume my experiments with different Smoothies.

Avocado, Banana, Blueberry Smoothie



Half Avocado, a Banana and a handful of blueberries.
It’s a very simple recipe, take the ingredients and blend it in a blender. Delicious healthy drink ready!!

Kiwi, Peach and Blueberry Smoothie

One Peach, one Kiwi and a handful of Blueberries. You can add honey if you find the smoothie too sour.

Beetroot and Celery Juice, with a slice of Ginger




One Beetroot, two Celery sticks and a small piece if Ginger



This totally looks like a Vampire’s drink. I loved the zing that ginger added to the drink.

Kale and Celery Juice

7 Curly Kale leaves (you can use any variety), two Celery Sticks and Ginger for taste

For juicing, I used a Breville Juicer and used the waste fibre as manure for my plants. 

Plain Kale shots and Beetroot Juice

This is how I started my Sunday morning. With shots of plain Kale and a drink of Beetroot.


These drinks are extremely easy to prepare, and you can make them in a jiffy. With a glass of nutrition in your hands … Cheers!! 🍹

  1. I have been on the look out for health drinks I could make at home. You have given me good suggestions πŸ™‚ And the headstand is amazing! How long did you take to achieve that? I am practicing yoga myself, but have never ventured into it.

  2. I can never stop applauding you for your head stand. It's she brilliance.. cause I just am not able to maintain a strict yoga regime. And your health drinks are colorful indeed. I would pick the vampire drink… well if I was given the choice

  6. You are so inspiring Rajlakshmi. I always feel recharged after reading your posts and seeing those yoga pics has inspired me to try them out after a rather longish break. Thanks for sharing the recipes for the juices and smoothies. Nothing works better than fresh fruits to give me a healthy start every morning.

  7. Your posts are so inspiring for me as they remind me to work out regularly and also try some new healthy recipes. Keep inspiring us and keep writing πŸ™‚

  8. The kiwi, peach and blueberry smoothie sounds heavenly! I say this while sipping my third mug of black coffee for the day. Oh, the irony! Next year, I hope to make a fresh start on my fitness journey.

  9. cool! inspired by you I have taken up yoga…and some day if I master even one posture, I'll post a picture of myself…right now I'm just discovering that I have a lot of joints in my body that I didn't even know existed! I guess all I need to do now is make some of these yummy smoothies… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  10. Omg! very cool. I need those smoothies and let me prepare at home. Thanks for sharing.
    Coming over to your headstand – I haven't attempted it even. Just today my yoga instructor was trying to pull me up while doing sarvangasan. My lower body weight keeps pulling me down πŸ˜›

  11. Haha you finished off all the fishes of brahmaputra? I don't think I left any for you when I was there 😝

    On a serious note, I admire your workouts and how you work to be healthy. For the past few months, I have not been feeling completely fit. Maybe I need to focus on my health too.
