Super Detox Smoothie

Super Detox Smoothie

The Valentine’s Day weekend was probably very indulgent and you might not have eaten a single salad. But there is redemption — in the shape of a super green and thick smoothie that is cleansing and a full meal in itself.

This is not a smoothie you would make if you are in a hurry but it is one that you might consider if you’re looking for some serious detoxing action.

Recipe (2 servings):

1 cup spinach or kale

1 cup torn romaine leaves

½ cup chopped cucumber

½ cup chopped celery

1 small pear (or ½ large)

1 frozen banana

1 cup water or coconut water

1 tablespoon fresh mint

1 tablespoon fresh parsley

Juice of 1 lemon

½ tablespoon chia seeds

¼-inch ginger knob

Pinch of cayenne

Pinch of cinnamon

Pinch of turmeric

1 scoop Sparkle Collagen

What’s so great about this complex green smoothie? The coconut water, cucumber, and celery make this drink incredibly hydrating, while the parsley and cayenne remove toxins from the body.

Cinnamon helps to lower blood sugar, turmeric and ginger are anti-inflammatory, and mint helps to aid digestion. The chia seeds will bulk up your smoothie with fiber along with the fruit.

Collagen peptides from Sparkle will give an extra glow to dull skin.

Your tired, overworked system will thank you for drinking this powerhouse beverage of vitamins and minerals.
