Nothing is quite like a cold smoothie on a hot summer day. Why not give your body a cleansing and delicious green tea smoothie that will pack a nutritional punch? Realistically, the way to totally “detoxify” is to eat whole, healthy foods and avoid processed ingredients and refined sugars whenever possible. That being said, this smoothie can help kickstart that cleanse. This green tea detox smoothie is full of antioxidant-rich ingredients like green tea, pineapple, cucumber, lemon, avocado and fresh mint that will help to aid your body’s detoxification processes.
Plus, it’s a delicious way to get more magnesium in your diet, with a refreshing flavour twist. Lemon Natural Calm is the perfect complement to flavours of green tea, pineapple, cucumber, mint and avocado.
Tip: If a sweeter smoothie is desired, try adding a spoonful of honey, stevia or sweetener of choice.
