It’s getting warmer in Toronto, which means patio weather and what comes with that is often less healthy food options (well for me, since I can’t say no to chicken wings!). Detox smoothie to the rescue!
I specifically chose to post this recipe after the weekend because these are the days it may be needed the most (again at least for me, since, well chicken wings).
- Makes: 1 large serving or 2 small servings
- Total time:5 minutes
- 1 cup of frozen berries, I usually use blueberries, blackberries and raspberries or strawberries, if using fresh berries, add some ice when blending the smoothie
- 1 cup of organic kale or spinach, chopped
- 1 cup of orange juice
- 1/2 scoop (22 g) of vanilla protein powder
- 1 tablespoon of flaxseed
Combine all ingredients in a blender and purée until smooth. Drink immediately.
