Daily Detox Drink

As Spring arrives, I start to crave smoothies and cold-press juices! A few years ago, I wanted to try green smoothies but was overwhelmed and didn’t think I would like them.

We joined the 30-day challenge from Simple Green Smoothies and had a lot of fun discovering that green smoothies can taste delicious!

Since our switch to delicious green smoothies, I am always trying to get more micronutrients into our snacks for extra boost of nutrition for immunity and detoxing.

I wanted to share my favorite green detox drink for you to try! I drink it for breakfast, mid morning snack or a late afternoon pick me up! It works best if you have a Vitamix or Blendtec Blender.

If you rather use a juicer, I suggest that you juice the veggies but blend the fruits and then mix together. You want your fiber and enzymes with your fruits in order for your body to process the sugar.

My kids actually enjoy this and hope your whole family will too!

 

Daily Detox Drink

 

Ingredients:

4 oz Lemon Juice

1 Green Apple

1/2 Orange peeled

1 Celery Stalk

1 Small Persian Cucumber

1 Cup Parsley

1/2 Cup Cilantro

2-3 TBs of Broccoli Sprouts

1 Dropper of Stevia

1 Small Nob of Ginger

1-2 Inches of Turmeric

2 Drops Lime Essential Oil

1 Drop Mint Essential Oil (or 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves)

2-4 Cubes of Ice

 

Directions:

Place lemon juice, cut up green apple and orange in blender and blend on “Whole Juice” setting. Add celery, cucumber, parsley and cilantro and blend again on “Whole Juice” setting. Add Stevia, Ginger, lime and mint essential oils and blend. Add ice and blend on “Smoothie” setting. Enjoy!

 

Note: I use all organic veggies, fruits, herbs, juice and oils. I get my essential oils from Plant Therapy who delivers with free shipping! You can chop up 1 cup of fresh mint leaves and squeeze 1 whole lime if you do not have essential oils. You can add in Spinach, Kale or other fresh greens to increase your veggies!
