Hi Guys! I thought I would share my recipe on a detox smoothie I find very good and boosts the immune system and cleanses your body just as much as I do love warm water and lemon in the morning as it is a good way to cleanse the body!I studied nutrition in college I have come with a lot of healthy recipe’s which I do love sharing with you, so I wanted to opt for something with a little more flavor in it so here I will explain how to get the ultimate detox smoothie.
I do love smoothie’s especially in the morning, they are great to kick start the day or even if you are not fond of breakfast, making a smoothie is perfect for another option and you can even bring it for on the go as well if you live a busy lifestyle, there are different types of smoothie’s too which I love to change it up for a bit of flavor! So now I will tell you how to get the delicious smoothie.
I use coconut water to start off with as it is full of nutrients and also has calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium and super hydrating which is what we want.
So your green leafy veg is another important ingredient as it high in fiber and contains vitamin C also good source of mineral’s iron and calcium. So pick one or two leafy green veg I opted for 2 cups of green leaf lettuce so I only picked one this time around.
For added sweetener’s to the smoothie I have chosen 1 medium orange and 1 medium size banana and the reason I chose these two fruits is because they are a good source of potassium and vitamin C. They also good source of fiber which aid to help the digestive system, oranges are full of beta-carotene and in case you don’t know what beta-carotene is well it is a antioxidant which protect the cell’s from damage.
This step can be optional but I like to add some ginger as it aids to help a healthy overall complexion and boosts energy level’s it also aids in the digestive system it is a good source of iron, calcium and vitamin B6.
So place all the ingredients I have mentioned above in a blender or nutri-bullet if you have one but any blender will do the job and there you have the ultimate detox smoothie, it does taste yummy! As you can see why I chose these ingredients is because of the good source’s of vitamins and minerals you get within each one so it is super healthy and good for you.
Last but not least to add some finishing touches place a slice of lemon or lime and some mint leaves which gives that refreshing overall look to the smoothie and makes it look much more appealing to drink.
