If your family is anything life mine then that means your holidays are full of family and fun times. But one thing that almost everyone complains about is all the excess eating and drinking that surrounds these holidays.
I find that the easiest time to fit in raw veggies, fruit, and other healthy things is by throwing it all into a smoothie for breakfast.
The best part about this smoothie is that you can’t taste the kale/spinach (whichever you choose) and the carrot has a natural sweetness that adds great flavor.
With this detox smoothie you start you day with something super healthy and yummy so that you can avoid that bogged down feeling later.
You can add any portion powder you want to this smoothie but I typically add collagen, ground flaxseed meal, and chia seeds to give your body some extra omega-3 to fuel your day.
I also love adding the ginger root as is serves as an anti-inflammatory food to help calm your gut after all the holiday festivities!
For the smoothie…
-1 cup kale or spinach
-1 organic carrot (about 6-7 inches)
-1 Tbsp ginger root
-2 tsp raw honey
-1/2-1/3 cup almond milk
-a handful of red grapes (~6) or half an apple
-2 Tbsp ground flaxseed
-chopped raw almonds
-1 Tbsp chia seeds
-dried shaved coconut (optional)
Grab your blender or food processor and combine all smoothie ingredients and blend until smooth. Pour the smoothie into a glass and top with chia seeds, some chopped raw almonds, and if you want even some shaved coconut!
