Coconut lime detox smoothie

Smoothies are a great way to get the nutrition you and your body needs to thrive into a delicious drink that you love. One of the biggest benefits of smoothies versus juices is that smoothies keep all the healthy fiber from the ingredients intact. This coconut lime detox smoothie is packed with ingredients that help with the body’s natural detoxification process.

Coconut water:
Coconut water is packed with fluids and electrolytes that help keep the body hydrated and help flush out toxins through urine.

Kale:
Kale contains compounds isothiocyanates, which are believed to help the body with the detoxification process. Detoxing is key to health, as toxins can enter the body and the bloodstream, where they slow down digestion, cause weight gain, and promote chronic diseases.

Limes:
They are high in pectin fiber, which helps suppress food cravings. Fiber also helps the body eliminate waste products by cleansing and detoxifying it. By maintaining a more alkaline diet, the immune system is allowed to thrive. Limes help regulate the body’s pH.

Pineapple:
Pineapple contains enzymes that are known to help get rid of toxins in the body and may help with weight loss as well.

Process the following ingredients in a blender:

1 cup of coconut water
1 cup of kale, ribs removed
Juice of 1 lime
1 cup of pineapple
1 apple

Make sure ingredients are organic and wash all produce thoroughly
Enjoy this coconut lime detox smoothie!
