Recipe: The Fashion Week Fortifier and Rosh Hashana Sweet Life Smoothie


Whether you're listening to pumping DJ beats at a runway show or 100 blasts of the shofar in shul, this tonic will get you through the week and beyond.

This month’s smoothie is both a delish Rosh Hashana dessert in a jar and a Fashion Week Fortifier—and you’ll really need it if you’re observing both traditions this week.

Fortunately, each sip of sweetness is loaded with replenishing, energizing, and balancing ingredients.

Take apples, fall’s favorite fruit, for starters. They’re packed with antioxidants and pectin (great for the skin), provide 4 grams of fiber (great for the gut), and boost your immunity when you’re running on empty.

Raw honey (not the honey that comes in a squeeze bottle) is a superfood loaded with nutrients like digestion-friendly enzymes. It’s also alkalizing, making it a sweetener that actually supports a system stressed by too much alcohol or refined sugar. Gotta love that.

Carrots are a grounding, root vegetable, so they help you stay centered and focused. And, of course, they’re a healthy source of vitamin A,  a tricky one in supplement form. And sweet, smoothie-thickening Medjool dates are rich in magnesium and have big-time anti-inflammatory benefits.

So, whether you’re listening to crazy, pumping DJ beats at a runway show or 100 blasts of the shofar in shul, this sweet, fortifying tonic will get you through the week and beyond. —Jennifer Kass

Recipe: The Fashion Week Fortifier and Rosh Hashana Sweet Life Smoothie

Blend and enjoy!

1 apple (we like a Granny Smith*)
1 Tbsp raw honey
1/2 carrot
2 Medjool dates
1 cup filtered water
Squeeze of lemon*
Pinch of pomegranate powder or fresh pomegranate seeds for garnish (optional)

*Technically you’re not supposed to consume tart or sour foods on Rosh Hashana, but a Granny Smith apple and lemon do balance the sweetness of this smoothie considerably.
