I think it’s the thought of drinking greens more than the actual flavour. Or when someone hears these ingredients listed below that they aren’t used to having we automatically assume they won’t taste good.
but if you give it an honest try I think you might surprise yourself. A green detox smoothie can actually be quite refreshing. The phytonutrients fill each cell one at a time and offer a natural boost of energy that gives us a pick me up first thing in the morning!
8-12oz filtered water
1 stalk celery
1 cup spinach
1 slice ginger
1/4 tsp turmeric

Place all ingredients in the blender and blast away!!!
Please note: For best results and to achieve a smooth consistency without any chunks a high speed blender is required.
The health benefits of a Green Detox Smoothie like this really are unlimited. You get a complete protein by combining celery and cucumber which is a fascinating fact to many. Ginger and turmeric both have anti-inflammatory properties and can help improve your immune system.
You have cleansing properties from cilantro and parsley. And finally adding a squeeze of lemon offers a great taste with this combination and it is also alkalizing to the body.
