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!
- handful of spinach
- 1/2 banana
- 1/2 pear (I use canned)
- 1/2 juiced lemon (I save the lemon to use in my water)
- 1 celery stalk (recipe calls for 2 stalks but 1 was fine for me)
- ice/water (depends how thick you like your smoothie)
- honey (I used local honey but you could sweeten with Splenda, Stevia etc)
Chop, blend and enjoy the beachfront drink.
