There may be a few weary eyes and sore heads hanging around today as the New Years celebrations come to a wind down and the office seems to be nearing closer. There is nothing better than to scare off a hangover and bounce back into it than with a cleansing juice or soothing smoothie. Luckily for me I received a new blender for Christmas so I’ve already been taking mine for a spin (literally) and been blending up those delicious summer fruits. Take a look at a few of my favourites below and fill your body with nutrients to get you feeling your best in 2014!e68f6a0a78ca6d1bcbeb59f8b19e2e9b
