Super Green Detox Drink

Super Green Detox Drink
Darling Daughter Lael is helping us all be healthier this year.  Here is her latest creation!!

Holy Moly...this is quite possibly the best green smoothly I've ever had! If you want a good smoothy recipe, I very highly recommend you try this one! SO unbelievably delicious! :) Even your kids will drink it!

The Super Green Powerful detox action masquerades as another delicious smoothie. The celery and parsley that contribute to its bright green color are diuretics that help rinse toxins from your system. Kale and mango are superfoods bursting with nutrition that support your cleanse.

Serves 2

PREP TIME: 15 minutes

TOTAL TIME: 15 minutes

1¼ cups chopped kale leaves (stems and tough rib removed), preferably Lacinato (also known as dinosaur)
1¼ cups frozen cubed mango
2 medium ribs celery, chopped
1 cup chilled fresh tangerine or orange juice
¼ cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
¼ cup chopped fresh mint

COMBINE all ingredients in blender.

PUREE until smooth.

POUR into 2 chilled glasses.

  5. All of these ingredients compliment each other soooo well! It's sweet because of the mango and the orange juice, you don't taste the kale at all, and there's a faint minty aftertaste that is just so refreshing! I used all fresh ingredients and added 6 ice cubes to the blender to make it "chilled". And then I drank the whole thing! Seriously delicious. And I wasn't hungry an hour later...which frequently happens when I substitute meals with smoothies! Definitely going to make this again!
