Now that GFW2 is up and running, I've been able to make it back into RBN Kitchen for some recipe development & cooking for clients! After my birthday week, decided after all the dining out & sparkling that it was time to DETOX; which for me is eating with lots of colour, 50% raw & lean proteins! Morning smoothies and juices (after lemon water) were a priority - this is what I came up with!
Super Duper Detox Smoothie
What to do:
After washing and roughly chopping all ingredients, add to bullet, vitamix or blender. Pulse until desired texture. Add a little more spice or greens if you're able. Enjoy. Makes 2 small or 1 large smoothie! **If too bitter add a touch of maple or honey.
