Detoxing the holidays? Blend up this veggie-packed, nutrient-dense smoothie!

We often begin a new year with a renewed priority in our health and the self-control to detox the holidays sweets and treats. We can always make ourselves eat more greens. But, it takes a little behind-the-scenes prep work to begin naturally desiring—even craving—more vegetables on our own.

I recommend starting with a little covert operation. Below is one resourceful way to sneak extra vegetables into an ordinary meal. With a couple different fruits and several handfuls of veggies, this green detox drink hits all the bases for a well-balanced breakfast or snack. This recipe suits two, so split it with a family member or friend, or save the other half for later!

 


Ingredients:

(Serves: 2 | Prep Time: 5min)

- 1 banana

- 1 tangerine

- 6 strawberries

- ½ cucumber

- ½ cup blueberries

- ½ tsp. cinnamon

- ½ cup kale

- ½ cup spinach

- ½ cup crushed ice

- 1 cup almond milk

 

Instructions:

1. Place banana, tangerine, strawberries, cucumber, blueberries, cinnamon, ice, and almond milk into a blender. Blend until creamy.

2. Once initial ingredients have blended together, open the lid and add the spinach and kale. Blend until the spinach and kale have fully combined into the smoothie. The smoothie will have turned green, but you should not see any green leaves or large chunks. 

3. Pour and enjoy immediately!

 

Tip:

Add a handful of almonds in the last few seconds of blending for a punch of protein and fat and a crunch of nutty goodness.
