The Detox Smoothie

A friend at work shared this recipe with me (she found it on Pinterest so thank you to whoever you are). It is a detox smoothie and though I was skeptical at first, I truly LOVE this smoothie. Not only does it make me feel like I should be sitting under an umbrella at the beach sipping this out of a carved out pineapple, but it has jump started my weight loss after I hit a plateau. Bonus…it really does “clean you out” if you catch my drift!

Ingredients:

  1. handful of spinach
  2. 1/2 banana
  3. 1/2 pear (I use canned)
  4. 1/2 juiced lemon (I save the lemon to use in my water)
  5. 1 celery stalk (recipe calls for 2 stalks but 1 was fine for me)
  6. ice/water (depends how thick you like your smoothie)
  7. honey (I used local honey but you could sweeten with Splenda, Stevia etc)

Chop, blend and enjoy the beachfront drink.
