Spring is the perfect time to cleanse your body. But, detoxing doesn’t have to mean deprivation. Help your body detox by adding this unique, delicious and nutrient-packed smoothie to your diet. You’ll be amazed at how good it tastes…and how good it makes you feel. Here’s the recipe for my super spring cleansing smoothie:
Dr. Michelle’s Super Spring Cleansing Smoothie
1˝ cups of cold water (or more if you prefer a thinner consistency)
6 inches of organic cucumber, sliced in half-inch disks
One stalk of organic celery, sliced in 2-inch pieces
One organic avocado, pit and skin removed
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until the texture is smooth. Adjust the amount of water if you prefer a thinner or thicker consistency. While you are marvelling at the great taste, you may forget that the celery provides over 14 pain-fighting compounds and loads of vitamins and minerals, including: riboflavin, vitamin B6, pantothenic acid, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus, vitamins A, C, and K, folate, potassium and manganese. The avocado adds fiber, protein, healthy fats, vitamins C and K, and folate. The cucumber is a good source of vitamins A, C and K, pantothenic acid, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus and manganese.
