How are you doing with your new year’s promises to yourself? Need something to jump-start that weight loss goal if it’s one of your resolutions? You just found one of the best and seriously effective de-tox smoothies on the web. Last month Sheryl emailed me saying “I have been making and drinking this detox drink with my hubby. For my hunny I even add cucumber and some chia seed . . . it’s so delicious!”
So here’s the recipe shared with you again — my best smoothie recipe that I posted 6 years ago that went viral on Pinterest. This green drink is much more effective in it’s claim to ‘de-tox’ due to the pineapple. I mean to tell you that you will be ‘cleansing’ (to put it nicely) alright! No doubt about the accuracy of the name ‘de-tox’ in this green potion!
However, since I do not have a juicer, I couldn’t churn up the pineapple and spinach into a ‘true’ smoothie. So it was a little more lumpy than the first smoothie. The taste is just fine though, and that’s a key factor for acceptability in my book! You can’t even taste the spinach and instead your tastebuds really pick up on the fruit and ginger elements. It’s quite nice!
For just one smoothie, simply use a small mini-blender or an immersion blender and give everything a good whirl! A lot less to wash afterwards . . . that’s always a good thing!
