How to Make a Detox Smoothie

Save

Whether you've overindulged during the holiday season, ate and drank just a little too much on vacation, or you want to start a healthy new diet, drinking detox smoothies is a great way to jump start a deep cleanse. Detox foods help remove toxins from the system and revitalize your body’s cells. Blending together fresh fruits and vegetables packed with healthful vitamins helps re-set our digestive system and replenish our supply of nutrients.
