This Green Smoothie is a fundamental part of our Detox Program.
While our bodies have their own amazing detoxification systems: the skin, the liver, the kidneys and the colon, this cocktail enhances the body’s natural metabolic detoxification pathways to support these organs, and promote wellness and natural healing.
Of course, as usual, my favorite ingredient, kale, is included on this recipe. Most people don’t believe that simple choices like having a green smoothie for breakfast and going out to the park for a brief walk can be as powerful as medication, but they often are.
Ingredients ( 1 serving)
- 6 oz water or coconut water
- 2 oz orange juice
- juice of ½ a lime
- 1 small green apple
- 1 cup of kale or spinach
- 1 scoop Leaf it UP Detox Boost
- 1 scoop Leaf it UP Vanilla Plant Protein
- Place ingredients in a blender, add ice and puree until smooth. It will need at least two minutes. The trick is to put the leaves in first with very little fluid volume and then add fruit to reach a smooth consistency. Drink immediately to take full advantage of all the nutrients.
