Raspberry Detox Smoothie

raspberry detox smoothie

This is an excellent detox smoothie for a natural body cleanse. It’s packed with fruit, which is high in fiber and loaded with essential vitamins and minerals. Let’s take a look at some of the key detox ingredients.

Flaxseed

flaxseed

Flaxseeds bring a big name benefit with “alpha-linolenic acid”, an omega-3 fatty acid that will boost heart health and help remove sugar from your bloodstream. Flax seed will also give you fiber and manganese. This recipe calls for ground flaxseeds. You can buy them ground, but I like them as fresh as possible. If you think you will use a lot of flaxseed, it’s worth getting a cheap coffee grinder.

Raspberries

raspberries

These sweet berries are packed full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients. Raspberries offer weight loss benefits, blood sugar benefits, and anti-cancer benefits. Those are some pretty sweet benefits!

Lemons

lemon

When I think of lemons I think of sunshine, summer, and roadside lemonade stands. These tart, vitamin-cpower fruits are full of detox rich flavonoids. Would you like natural antibiotics? How about anti-carcinogens? Protection from rheumatoid arthritis? All of this and more can be found in our friend, the lemon.

Let me just say, I feel so smart when I drink this smoothie. It tastes great and it has so many health benefits. Give it a try and let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
