Double Duty Detox Smoothie

posted in: Holistic Wellness | 31

If you keep up with my blatherings on Facebook, you now I've been feeling like junk all year so far. About a week ago, I started the DETOX process – eating super clean, drinking lots of water, and taking detox baths. It is definitely helping but I'm still not 100% at my best.

It seems I really did some damage to my body over the last couple of months of being completely off track with my diet. Processed foods, sugar, and way too much pizza made their way back into my lifestyle over the holidays and my tummy and energy levels are showing it BIG time.

Was it worth it?? Um, no. Not in the least. Lesson learned!

While it can be a little difficult to completely overhaul your diet in one go, that's what I've been trying to do. I need to get back to my energized, do-all-the-things self!

This smoothie is jam-packed with antioxidants and probiotics to energize you + aid the detox process!

Smoothies help so much – they're easy to make, and they can really pack a punch of vitamins, nutrients + antioxidants. This has been my go-to blend lately. I love it for breakfast (I'm not a huge morning eater) and for energizing “boosts” in place of the copious amounts of coffee I normally drink.

I love this smoothie because it works “double duty” with probiotics to aid gut health and a TON of antioxidants to fight free radicals. It's a keeper for sure!

Just blend it all up and you're good to go:

1 cup berries (I use the antioxidant blend from Costco's frozen section. You can use whatever berries you want! All berries are rich in antioxidants. The rule of thumb is darker color = more antioxidants.) Just a few ingredients in this detox smoothie!

1 cup flax milk (I'm using Good Karma's vanilla flax milk. Almond milk would be delicious here, too!)

1 packet of hemp protein

1 packet of chia seeds

1/2 cup kombucha (I got the idea to add kombucha to my smoothie from Emily at Recipes to Nourish and I absolutely LOVE it!! It adds a tiny bit of fizz and “kick” as well as all the wonderful probiotic benefits from the booch. Winner.)

1/2 cup water** (I add lots of liquid to my smoothies because I like to have a lot to sip on. You could totally skip this if you like thicker smoothies.)

I find this smoothie both filling and super refreshing! The chia and hemp add protein and are both loaded with antioxidants, so both are perfect for this detox smoothie. Give it a try any time you need a little boost of energy or to help recover from toxic overload.

    This smoothie sounds awesome! I know that derailment feeling lol it sucks! You know those chia seeds are REAlLY great for energy too! They call it runners fuel when combined with kombucha!!! I might have to try your smoothie recipe because I too am not a morning eater and this sounds perfect to give me a morning energy boost in replacement of my coffee!

    Fun recipe! It’s always so nice to have something taste so good that is doing good in your body. I love the slushy berries with the kombucha.
