Kale, Lemon and Mint Detox Smoothie

After a long night out or a week of bad eating, detox your body with this delicious green smoothie.

This recipe uses kale, spinach, lemon, cucumber and chia seeds.

With the added vitamin C from the lemon and oranges, this recipe will boost your immune system and help you recover from a late night out or poor food choices.

For added hydration, use coconut water in place of the purified water. It’s full of electrolytes and has more potassium than bananas!

Key Health Benefits

  • Kale is a good source of antioxidants and phytonutrients.
