Recipe: Thanksgiving Detox Smoothie
We know it’s a bit hard to think about recipes on — or soon after — Thanksgiving. But we think you’ll appreciate this one, because it’s a bracing smoothie that’ll literally make you feel better about whatever (or however much) you’ve eaten.
The recipe starts with cranberries, which are antioxidant powerhouses, then adds in apples and bananas for sweetness, a tiny bit of stomach-soothing ginger root and a handful of spinach. The ingredients are probably already in your fridge, and the result is much healthier (and tastier, and prettier) than Tums.
