My Favorite Detox Smoothie

Sunday, July 2, 2017

Hello friends! I wanted to share my current favorite detox smoothie with you all. Lately my body has been needing some major detox and this smoothie has been helping. I don't really measure when I make smoothies, but it's a pretty general recipe that can be done without :)

What you need:
  • 1 organic frozen banana
  • Handful of organic frozen mango
  • Handful of fresh dandelion greens (I pick mine from my backyard because we don't spray- but you can also find them in the produce section of the grocery store)
  • A few sprigs of fresh mint
  • A knuckle of fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon of organic coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon of organic hemp seeds
  • Juice of one lemon
  • Organic iced green tea
Other detoxifying foods that would be beneficial to add:
  • Celery
  • Cucumbers
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Basil
  • Cilantro
  • Matcha powder
  • Maca powder
  • Lemongrass
The dandelions, lemon, ginger, coconut oil and green tea are power foods when it comes to detoxifying. This smoothie flushes out toxins, can aid in weight loss, help with bloating, and so much more. It will leave your body feeling great. The detoxifying foods listed above are even known to aid in cancer prevention. You are drinking super foods! 

The dandelion greens are one of the key detoxifiers in this recipe, but they are quite bitter. If you don't like the bitterness, I suggest substituting the dandelion greens with spinach :) Learn more about the benefits of dandelions here.

Step 1: Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until you reach your desired consistency. I typically make this smoothie thinner than I would a normal smoothie just because it makes it seem more like a juice than a smoothie. It's not the best tasting thing I've ever had, but it's not terrible either. The lemon and the mint really tone down the bitterness of the dandelions and make it yummy! #DoItForTheDetox

Step 2: Pour into a glass and enjoy. Your liver will thank you!

If you try this smoothie, let me know how you like it! Do you have any favorite detox drinks?
