Today I have a fun post sponsored by Naked’s new Power Garden juices.

I’m not particularly a fan of hiding fruits or veggies in other foods, because it’s so often done in a deceitful manner to deceive kids. I don’t like lying about what’s in foods, but I definitely love maximizing the nutrition of my favorite recipes. It’s why I put zucchini, pumpkin, or carrots in muffins, apples in oatmeal, loads of veggies in pasta sauce, and spinach in smoothies.

Naked is known for their juices and smoothies that pack pounds of fruits and veggies in a single bottle. Their new line, Power Garden, has two flavors loaded with the good stuff: Tomato Kick and Berry Veggie.

Ahem… I may or may not be sitting on a porch with a bunch of helpful toddlers…

As I was saying, Naked asked a few of us to create some recipes using their pumped up juices. I’ve probably mentioned 5,495.394 times that I hate tomatoes, so I was pretty sure I would use the Berry juice for my recipe, but once I got to thinking, I decided to embrace the challenge and use the Tomato Kick juice.

The result? Pretty snazzy:

Slightly spicy meets cilantro-citrus infused enchilada sauce, made with Naked’s Tomato Kick juice- a fun way to add in an extra dose of veggies. A great way to jazz up your favorite enchilada recipe. Complements these pineapple-laced enchiladas quite well!
