3 Drinks To Help You Heal & Detox Throughout The Day
If I want something dessert-like but also nutritious and filling in the morning, this is my go-to drink. It combines fruit, superfoods and protein to keep me full.
I also look for a way to get a natural kick in the morning and this smoothie has naturally derived caffeine from raw cacao nibs which are also high in antioxidants.
My Favorite Summer Breakfast Smoothie
Yields 14 ounces
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 tablespoon of raw almond butter
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 tablespoon of raw cacao nibs
- 1 medjool date
- 1 teaspoon hemp seeds
- A handful of your favorite berries (strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries)
Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth.
CIndy's Tummy Soother Juice
I used to get stomach aches often as a child. Unfortunately I didn't understand the connection between what I ate and how it affected my body.
I formulated this smoothie to support the digestive system. Each ingredient on its own is known to aid in digestion, the combination of these ingredients put together is a powerhouse of vitamins, minerals, and enzymes to heal any digestive issues.
Polysaccharides found in the gel of the aloe leaf lubricates the lining of the intestines, pineapple has strong anti-inflammatory benefits and the menthol in mint is soothing. It’s so easy to make too!
Yields 16 ounces
- 1/2 Fresh Aloe Vera leaf (slice open and scoop out the inside gel)
- 1 cup fresh pineapple
- A handful of de stemmed mint leaves
- 3/4 to 1 cup of water
Put in blender all together, blend until smooth and drink up!
Cindy's Chelation Cleansing Green Juice
For lovers of cilantro, this is a green juice you'll enjoy. Cilantro has been found to aid in the removal of toxic metals such as mercury from the body.
This juice combines cilantro with other nutrient-rich ingredients to aid in chelation and help you live at your optimal level and full of vitality.
If you aren’t familiar with the term chelation, it’s a way to cleanse the body of toxins (mainly metals) — this juice helps your body do it naturally.
Yields 16 ounces
- 1 large cucumber
- 6-8 sprigs of fresh cilantro
- 1 Granny Smith
- 1 Fuji Apple
- 1 celery stalk
- 1 sliver of fresh ginger
- 1/2 lime freshly squeezed
Combine all ingredients in any home juicer and add the fresh lime at the end. Enjoy!
