SPRING FORWARD SMOOTHIE
makes 1 LARGE smoothie or 2 smaller smoothies
1 ½ cups dairy-free milk
½ cup pea or broccoli sprouts
¼ teaspoon ginger powder or 1 teaspoon fresh ginger
1/4 teaspoon tumeric powder or 1 teaspoon fresh tumeric
1 handful spinach
1 green apple, core removed
3 kale leaves
½ lemon, juiced
dash of cayenne pepper
What exactly will this smoothie do for me, you might ask?
Dairy-free milk such as Almond, Coconut, or Hemp Milk are loaded with vitamins, rich in protein, and are packed with minerals. Dairy-free milk is also cholesterol-free and easier to digest! Broccoli and Pea Sprouts are superfoods shown to have anti-diabetic and antimicrobial properties, improving kidney function, and killing cancer stem cells. Ginger, Tumeric and Cayenne Pepper act as anti-inflammatories. Cayenne Pepper also acts as an anti-allergen, anti-fungal, and antibacterial. The additional fruits and vegetables tie in this smoothie providing you with the ultimate cleanse for a healthier liver while riding your body of toxins that have been building up!
Want an extra boost? Add in a scoop of your favorite probiotic powder to aid in your gastrointestinal health while enhancing your immune system response. I love Garden of Life Primal Defense. You can find this at Whole Foods or New Seasons.
Don’t make this a one-time thing. Make this “Spring Forward Smoothie” part of your daily routine!
You’re on your way to a happy and healthier you. Trust me, your liver will thank you later.
In Health and Happiness,
