Detoxing has been all the rage for awhile, and the Jillian Michaels detox water is the gold standard. But what if you don’t want to go through the entire detox and simply enjoy some of the benefits of the ingredients on a smaller scale? Detox Smoothie to the rescue!
Now that I’m eating clean, I’m on the lookout for different ideas and recipes to incorporate healthy food. Although this originally ran awhile ago, my version is for those who don’t want to experience the entire detox, but reap some of the health benefits and rewards on a smaller scale. In smoothie fashion!
As with any dietary changes or detox, please check with a physician prior to implementing. Especially with the use of dandelion root – it has some interactions and side effects you should be aware of. Please remember this recipe is to detox. You will have epic poop. Keeping it real, folks.

That all being said… and now that I’ve got you super excited… what’s all of the fuss about?
Dandelion Root Tea – Helps to improve digestion, purify the bladder and kidneys, improves circulation, relieve inflammation, and is rich in antioxidants.
Cranberries – Helps to prevent urinary tract infections, contain Vitamin C, fiber, and are rich in antioxidants. They are considered the #2 “superfood” next to blueberries.
Lemon – Helps to boost the immune system, clean your stomach, and is full of vitamins and flavonoids and antioxidants.
Steep your tea, add the ingredients to your Vitamix or Ninja, and let the magic happen. When I use real lemon to any recipe, I always like to add a few drops of Lemon Essential Oil to enhance the flavor. Add some cute straws and drink up! So what does it taste like? Um… yeah. Let’s put it this way… it’s designed to be healthy for your body. The taste kind of grows on you. Kind of. Or as Hubby says, “It tastes like ar$e and I cannot lie…” I’ve got you really excited to try this LOL!!!!
