Greens Detox; Cleansing Green Smoothie Recipe

The beginning of a new year is a great time for a greens detox. A great way to do this is by drinking cleansing green smoothies. Many of us ate more over the holidays than we usually do. After all, isn’t that what the holidays are all about? I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday, and shared some great food with family and friends.

It is nice to give our systems a break since overeating can be hard on our body. Overeating slows down our system, which means slower elimination and natural detoxification. A greens detox with cleansing green smoothies is a great way to help our bodies with its natural detoxification process and give it the break it needs. Time to rejuvenate for the new year. Many of us have New Year’s resolutions to change the way we eat, and to work at having better health and weight loss goals. An easy as well as beneficial way to help you achieve your goals, is incorporating cleansing green smoothies into your diet.

Not to worry. I am not saying that you have to go on some crazy cleanse and replace all solid food with smoothies. I am just encouraging you to drink a (green) smoothie a day. Green smoothies are easy to digest, making it easier to absorb the nutrients they contain. And boy do they ever contain a lot.

This cleansing green smoothie recipe contains several ingredients to help your body recover and rejuvenate itself for the new year ahead.
