Detox Smoothie

Stride into the new year on a healthy foot. I know eating healthy isn’t always the easiest feat, but it’s one that will make you physically feel better. Easier said than done on so many levels. Don’t get me wrong we do eat unhealthy and I will be the first to admit I have a bin of sugar candies and a separate bin for chocolate in our pantry, but the majority of our meals are centered around vegetables and wholesome foods.

We have been drinking the below smoothie this past week and have fallen in love with how it makes us feel. The smoothie has helped with my bloating and overall cleanse of our bodies. It’s a perfect early or mid morning treat.

Tips
  • If all of the ingredients don’t fit in your blender cup blend all ingredients excluding the spinach and blend. This should give you more room to add the spinach.
