It’s Green Smoothie week at Plum Joyful!!! Let’s start our spring cleanse off with a yummy green smoothie.
Here is our first smoothie recipe chock full of good ingredients for liver cleansing and digestion.
Spiced Mango lime green smoothie
1 cup fresh or frozen mango
1/2 large banana or 2 small ones
1 cup coconut milk (I like half full fat and half low fat for extra creaminess without all the calories) or non dairy milk of choice
1 cup baby spinach leaves
1/2 cup dandelion leaves
Juice of half a lime
1-2 tsp alcohol free vanilla extract (optional) Frontier brand is the best for alcohol free.
A tiny pinch of nutmeg
1/8 tsp or a healthy pinch of powdered ginger, or 1/2 inch fresh peeled ginger
* for extra sweetness add a few drops of stevia
The Spinach and dandelion leaves will aid in cleansing your liver, the lime will help jumpstart your digestion, as will the ginger. the mango is loaded with vitamin C which aids the liver and immune system, and the banana gives a nice dose of potassium!
place all ingredients in a blender and blend till smooth.
