The Best Detox Smoothie

You know how some detox smoothies feel like punishment? This one doesn’t. It’s refreshing, easy to drink, and doesn’t have a weird aftertaste that will make you want to gag. Yay!

My detox smoothie is packed full of ingredients that increase alkalinity, act as diuretics, improve immunity and provide digestive support. Because this recipe requires small amounts of lots of different fresh ingredients, I like to grocery shop once for everything then make a fresh smoothie every day of the week. Remember that for detoxing to be effective, it’s important to use organic produce and ingredients whenever possible.
