Detox Smoothie

Detoxifying Smoothies 

The results of our office Detox Smoothie taste test are in! The favorite was the Spinach Mango, followed by the Basic Green Drink.  The Basic Green Drink is the most detoxifying because of the ginger and lemon. However the others work well over time. Notice a basic ingredient with the drinks below; one that turns the smoothies green and adds essential vitamins and nutrients.

Basic Smoothie Recipe

Add all ingredients to a blender and puree until smooth and completely combined. Drink all at once, or separate into two servings. The smoothie can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one day. When it comes out of the fridge, it will have thickened, so give it a brisk stir (or use a small whisk) and enjoy!
