Holiday Detox Smoothie -Cleansing Juice Recipes The holidays are a time for family, friends, love, and of course… lots of food. It always leaves me craving something really fresh and healthy to cleanse my system, and this smoothie does just that. It’s quick and easy and perfect for the day after a big holiday meal or party. The ingredients in this smoothie all have their own slew of health benefits, too. Carrots are rich in antioxidants and beta-carotene, which is transformed into vitamin A in the liver. Vitamin A helps the liver flush toxins from the body, which is hugely beneficial during the holidays. Holiday Detox Smoothie Makes 2 servings 1 1/2 carrots, peeled and chopped – if your carrots are larger, just use one. 1/2 an apple – you can use any type of apple you want, I chose a red gala. 1 tbsp ginger, freshly chopped. 1/2 cup pure apple juice In addition to these ingredients I added a 1/2 cup of water, just to thin the smoothie out a bit. Chop and peel the ingredients and add all into blender. Photos by Julia.
