Now is the moment when you realize you’ve been doing any of the following over the past few weeks:
- Indulging a wee bit too much in ‘holiday cheer’ AKA eggnog
- Binging on all of the holiday candy…and fruit cakes
- Lounging by a pool somewhere warm while on vacation and only moving from your chair in order to get another daiquiri
- All of the above
Sounds to me like you’re in dire need of a detox, missy. Not to worry though…I’ve been preparing for your freak out, and I have compiled several healthy smoothie recipes from the interwebs to detoxify your body.
The Green Machine. Add a peeled, frozen banana to a blender with 1 tablespoon of peanut butter. Add a ½ cup of fat-free vanilla Greek yogurt. Add in 1 cup of unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze ‘milk,’ and 4 handfuls of spinach. Blend all ingredients and enjoy! Spinach is high in fiber and antioxidants, while bananas are a great source of potassium.
Berry Nice. Place 2 handfuls spinach, ½ cup skim milk, ½ cup unsweetened pineapple juice, ½ cup frozen pineapple chunks, 1 cup blueberries, and ½ cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt into a blender. Blend to combine. Blueberries have the highest antioxidant capacity of all fresh fruit.
The Good Morning. Take 1 ¼ cups of strawberries, ½ cup of low fat plain yogurt, 1 banana, 1 ¼ cups of orange juice, and 1 tablespoon of Splenda and add them to a blender. Orange juice and strawberries are both great sources of Vitamin C, which help to boost your immune system.
