Whether you’re a full-fledged juicing aficionado or a twice-a-year smoothie sampler, there’s a beverage for everyone in The Juicery founder Cindy Palusamy’s new book Juice. Blend. Taste. Not only is it packed with more than 150 recipes for both juices and smoothies, from refreshing greens to warm caffeinated concoctions, a third of the ideas from the popular London-based juice bar come from dozens of wellness experts whose advice is worth heeding, including Tata Harper (yes, of the organic skincare line) and Dr. Frank Lipman of Eleven Eleven Wellness Center in N.Y.C.

So, in the spirit of juicing and blending—it’s still the month of resolutions, after all—we asked Palusamy to share some of her favorite elixirs. Scroll down to see what she drinks and why they work.

Tata’s Hydrating Juice by Tata Harper

"This juice is loaded with fruits like cucumbers and melons that are packed with hydrating and antioxidant power," says Palusamy. "They combat dry skin from the inside out. Cucumber also contains silica, a mineral that’s important for collagen production which makes our skin look young and dewy."

Ingredients:
½ stalk celery
2 inches cucumber
2 apples
2 oranges, peeled
2 tbsp raw honey
1 tbsp aloe vera juice
1 tbsp orange blossom water
⅓ cup unsweetened coconut water

Directions:
Juice the celery, cucumber, apples, and oranges, then add in the remaining ingredients. Serve immediately, blended with ice, poured over ice cubes, or at room temperature with no ice.

1 cup unsweetened almond nut milk or coconut milk or half water and half coconut milk
