Cleansing Green Smoothie

Cleansing Green Smoothie

It’s warming, earthy, and packs a gamut of immune defense – exactly what we need this time of year.

Between the lemon, ginger and the turmeric, this smoothie is good for digestion and is very cleansing for the liver. It’s also chock full of antioxidants. To boot, it delivers a high dose of kale, which is a great way to fill up on vitamins, minerals and other immune boosting, anti-inflammatory phytonutrients.
