GREEN DETOX DRINK

green detox drink

We’ve all had those weekends where we may have had a few too many glasses of wine, gave into an ice cream craving or had 100 slices of pizza. Come Monday you feel puffy, bloated, sluggish and SO READY to start detoxing and “getting your diet back on track”…sound familiar? This Green Detox Drink will help cleanse your body and get you back on track whether it’s Monday morning or mid-week.

Detoxifying benefits of the Green Detox Drink:

  • Ginger- Helps stimulate digestion and total body circulation. It cleanses the buildup of toxins and waste in your liver, color and other major organs.
  • Parsley- Increases the productivity of liver enzymes to detoxify the body and is especially useful for removing heavy metals. In addition, it acts as a diuretic cleansing your blood and kidneys.
  • Spinach- Aids with digestion due to its high fiber content and provides powerful antioxidants.
  • Romaine lettuce- This surprising superfood helps prevent plaque buildup on your arteries and regulates blood pressure.
  • Mango- Helps this drink not taste like crap. Just kidding, they are rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, fiber and antioxidants for overall health.

Serves: 1

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup frozen mango chunks
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tbsp minced ginger (I LOVE ginger- feel free to reduce this to 1/2 tbsp)
  • ½ cup parsley
  • 6 leaves romaine lettuce
  • 1-1.5 cups spinach

Directions:

  1. Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until there are no chunks. The Green Detox Drink should be a juice like consistency not thick like a smoothie.
  2. Enjoy!

If I know my morning is going to be crazy I sometimes prepare this drink the night before and just pour it into a Blender Bottle. In the morning I can just give it a couple good shakes to blend together and it’s still absolutely delicious!

    Mango – “Makes this drink not taste like crap” hahaha So true! I’m not a big green juice person but I actually have most of these ingredients at home so I’ll have to give this a try!

      It’s so good! It sometimes even gives me more energy in the morning than my coffee!

    i love drinks like this! i make mine with an orange though. but i havent used parsley! i’m seeing this just in time because im going to TJs tonight, so i’ll try it tomorrow 😀
    i also like adding cucumbers & celery because of the high water content & natural sweetness! (and natural sodium!)

      Oranges are so delicious this time of year I’ll have to try them in this and cucumbers and celery. YUM!! Gotta love green drinks- Thanks for stopping by 🙂

          I’m so glad you liked it! Yes make it your own, or hey throw out the parsley all together if you want. I’ve been modifying this drink lately adding a packet of Emergen-C and using a tropical blend of frozen mango, pineapple and strawberries! It’s a great base 🙂
