Green and Clean Smoothie

detoxifyinggreensmoothie

This smoothie is straight out of a Sesame Street episode because we’re just going to focus on green things. Open your fridge and pull out anything green, chances are it’s a healthy vegetable option. You can also pick these up from the store the next time you’re out if you want to follow along perfectly.

What You Need:

1/4 Cucumber
1/2 handful Spinach or Other Leafy Green
1/2 Avocado
1 Celery stalk
2 sprigs Fresh Mint
1 Kiwifruit
1 cup Purified Water
1/2 of apple
Squirt of lemon

INSTRUCTIONS: Blend everything together in your blender. If you’re using organic cucumber (recommended) you can leave the peels on for added nutritional value.

Green Smoothie Craze

Green smoothies are all the rage, and it’s easy to see the appeal. You get all of the fruit flavor of a smoothie, plus all of the vitamins and minerals from vegetables. Organic produce is the way to go when making a green smoothie, since you don’t want herbicides and pesticides to impede your detox progress.
