In our previous blog, we focused on Spring Cleansing of the Mind, Body, and Home. Today, we’re expanding on the cleansing and detoxification of the body with some delicious smoothies!
As the weather gets warmer and we enjoy more outdoor activities, it’s essential to replenish and fortify our bodies with nutrients and minerals. Including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and immune-boosting ingredients in smoothies is a great way to drink in the goodness.
One of our favorite organic smoothie blends is:
- 1/2 cup blueberries
- 1/2 cup blackberries
- 1/2 banana
- 1/2 cup strawberries
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- 1 tsp Spirulina
- 1 tsp chlorella
- 1 tbsp raw cacao
- 1 cup almond milk and/or coconut milk
We often use organic frozen berries so the smoothies blend into slushy, frothy yumminess. And, frozen berries keep longer so stock up on some when you get a chance.
If you prefer a smoothie that’s chockfull of greens, another of our favorite blends is:
- 1 apple
- 1 cup kale
- 1 cup arugula
- 1 cup spinach
- 1 cup carrots
- 1/2 slice ginger
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 cup almond and/or coconut milk
Additional wonderful and tasty ingredients to include in smoothies are watercress, lemongrass, turmeric, and matcha. Make several servings at a time and store some in the refrigerator to enjoy over the next few days. Or, freeze the extra for a frozen treat during those warms days or whenever you’d like!
