Looking for a great way to get a jumpstart on your New Year’s (or any time of year!) resolution to lose weight and flush out bloat, as well as rid the leftovers from overindulgence and toxins from the holiday? Then we’ve signed you up 😉 for this refreshing Skinny Green Smoothie. You’re welcome! 🙂
This detox recipe truly helps to restore normal fluid balance as it hydrates you. It’s high in potassium so it will flush bloat from sodium while the veggies (like spinach) help the liver in its’ detoxification stages. You also get a load of phytonutrients to fight free radical damage and the inflammation that comes with it. Add that it’s high in Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Manganese—that all help to fight free radical damage too. And Skinny? You betcha! For just 61 delicious calories, you can’t go wrong!
(In addition to starting our day by drinking a large glass of water, on days when we want an extra lift, we also have one of our refreshers like our Kale Recharge Smoothie, Sparkling Cucumber and Refresh Detoxer, or we go for one of our smoothies that use the Easiest Way To Get our Greens or we go for this Skinny Green Smoothie!)
