Thanksgiving is a time for indulging in our favorite traditional foods. While it is an honored tradition for families in the U.S., it is important to get rid of the toxins that may accumulate from these foods. This Thanksgiving detox kale coconut smoothie is the perfect way to get back on a healthy track. Let’s take a closer look at the ingredients.

Apples:
Like many fruits and vegetables, apples contain compounds called polyphenols. These compounds work as antioxidants, protecting the cells from the effects of oxidative stress. They are also high in fiber.

Coconut water:
Organic coconuts are packed with healthy fats. They are also great for skin and hair health because of their high levels of the antioxidant vitamin E.

Kale:
It is an excellent source of two powerful antioxidants called carotenoids and flavonoids. These antioxidants protect our bodies from harmful oxidative stress.  They also contain important flavonoids like kaempferol and quercitin, which it thought to kill certain types of cancer cells.

1 handful of kale
1 apple
1 cup of organic coconut water
