Greet The New Year With A Detox Smoothie

We know it’s a bit hard to think about recipes so soon after the holidays. 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. And it goes right along with your resolutions, right?

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.

Detox Smoothie

1/2 cup cranberries
1 apple, peeled and diced
1/2 a banana
1 tbsp diced ginger root
1 handful spinach
1/2 cup water
1 cup ice

Add all ingredients to a blender, blend until smooth, and enjoy!
