Rise and Shine Detox Smoothie (V) (GF)

smoothieI’m not going to lie to you, this smoothie is absolutely hideous, yet oh-so-delicious. It will also give you that energy boost you need sans coffee! I am doing a detox with Nick this week – so I plan on adding more smoothie recipes to the collection. Enjoy!!

Rise and Shine Detox Smoothie (V)(GF)

the ingredients:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp flax seed, ground
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 banana
  • 1/4 cup spinach
  • 1 tbsp almond butter/peanut butter (I used peanut butter in Nick’s since he has an almond allergy)
  • 2 tsp lemon juice

the method:

Blend. Sip. Repeat.

  1. I’d be inclined to add more greens to this. 1/4 cup spinach does not seem like a lot to me. The chlorophyll will help with the detox too.

    • I was thinking the same thing Sandy! However, the other smoothies in the detox plans are full of greens – I will post those smoothies recipes later this week :)

      Thanks for your comment!! xoxo

  2. Good “stuff”.. i drink these types of smoothies everyday. Flax is an awesome and full of great energy. I often use non GMO almond milk and throw in some greens and or Wheat Grass powder. A huge benefit is to get a wide range of color in what you add. It equals a wide range of nutrients. Great suggestion!
