Shake off the bad stuff with this detox smoothie

Frozen berry smoothie.

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).
