Summer is still in full swing, which means you should be on top of your juice and smoothie game. Candice Kumai, celebrity chef and author of Clean Green Drinks, has rounded up three muscle-building post-workout smoothies, and three cleansing juice recipes to keep you on track.

1/2 cup kale
1 tablespoon green superfood

If you love the combo of banana and mango, you’ll love this naturally power-boosting smoothie with bee pollen and spirulina.
