With February already here and January well behind me, I decided to come up with a mean green detox smoothie to end the new week, because what better way to end the month and get your body prepared for the new one ahead than to blow those cobwebs away and reinforce healthy habits.
The main purpose of this smoothie recipe is to provide a reset for my system and aid detoxification of any nasties in the body by introducing antioxidants and much needed nutrients to fuel and kickstart the body's metabolism. I also want to start alkalising my body by using the Super Elixir alkalising greens supplement in this smoothie recipe. I'll be talking about and reviewing this in another post further down the line as I want to have the opportunity to use this supplement for a good amount of time and track the benefits.
1 Handful of spinach (fresh or frozen)
1/2 inch of fresh stem ginger
1 tsp Apple cider vinegar
2 Heaped tsps Super elixir alkalising greens
1/2 cup of Almond milk
1/2 cup of filtered water
Wash the spinach if fresh and chop the apple and pear into medium sized pieces
Add the chopped fruit, spinach, ginger to the blender / food process
Add the milk and water followed by the Super Elixir Alkalising greens and apple cider vinegar
Blend until smooth
Transfer the smoothie to a glass on container of choice
Garnish with a few leaves of mint (optional) and enjoy!
