Katrine van Wyk is a former model turned holistic health coach and yoga teacher (that skin, those eyes!).

And this year, the New Yorker adds author to her wellness-centric resume with her recipe book Best Green Drinks Ever, a comprehensive guide to everything you need to know about green juice and smoothies. (We reviewed it here.) The book also comes with a forward by functional medicine guru Frank Lipman, MD, who also happens to be her boss.

With so many recipes in her juice rotation, it was a little hard to pin van Wyk down to just one favorite: “I like a juice packed with greens—leafy greens, cucumber, celery, and a tiny splash of green apple,” she says of her juicing philosophy. “But I also love seasonal ingredients—adding some fennel and pear in the fall or some cooling mint and cucumber in the summer.”

That was our ticket to zeroing in on this sexy smoothie that calls for winter fruit, spices, and a big cup of spinach. It’s a concoction from her book that’s sweet and sustaining, although, like van Wyk, we reserve the right to turn a page and discover another favorite tomorrow. —Jamie McKillop
