Have you ever considered doing the hard-core cleanse known as The Master Cleanse? Well, I’ve done it, and I do not recommend it to anyone. Instead, add this drink to your healthy-habit regiment. It’s packed with cleansing nutrients and fiber to help sweep you clean.
- ½ cup water
- ½ cup freshly made apple juice
- 1 cup, or 3 leaves, kale
- ¼ green apple
- ½ lemon
- 1 inch slice of ginger
- ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
- 1 tbsp real maple syrup
Add all the ingredients to your blender, pouring the liquids over top. Blend until everything is smoothly mixed. Sip it slow!
