A Green Smoothie Detox is an easy and delicious way to clean your body of toxins, fill yourself full of nutrients, and help to shed a few pounds. Mixing fresh fruits and vegetables will give you lovely colors and can be made in minutes with a kitchen blender.
This particular green smoothie detox recipe is full of vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber to give your body a detoxifying flush. It also contains water that helps to hydrate your body and boost metabolism.
Kale is the trendy new spinach, and pretty darn good for you too. Smoothies make a great vehicle for helping with your kale intake since for some kale can be a bit much to munch on.
If “greens” are not usually your thing try swapping the kale with baby spinach – it has significantly less flavor, but still contains great metabolizing ingredients. You’ll also taste the berries and other fruit more than with the kale.
We always recommend using fresh ingredients – especially during berry season – but frozen ingredients will work too. This is great for breakfast, or for post workout. Enjoy.

- 1/4 cup strawberries
