Recipe: Spring Smoothie Trio
Recipe: Spring Smoothie Trio

One of the great benefits of eating clean whole foods is the palette of color they bring to the table. Or in this case, the glass!

Are you ready to add some color to your routine?

First up is the Turmeric Sunrise Smoothie. We all know that turmeric has a powerful anti-inflammatory effect and is a very strong antioxidant. We love the addition of blood oranges to any smoothie when they are in season – and when we’re not cleansing. Combine these with ginger and you get one bright and warming pick-me-up. This smoothie keeps your immune system and digestion going strong all day. It’s the perfect smoothie to drink as you transition onto the cleanse, but keep it out of your glass during the cleanse because of the oranges.

Next up is our Pineapple Green Mint Smoothie. If you’ve never combined mint and pineapple before, you’re in for a real treat. Let’s just say match made in heaven. This delicious smoothie becomes thick and creamy with the addition of avocado, which is full of heart-healthy fat. It will help keep you full and happy all morning long, so it’s perfect for the cleanse, especially if you’re used to eating a hearty breakfast!

And last but certainly not least is the Lemon Blueberry Smoothie. Get ready to delight your taste buds. This smoothie, rich in vitamin C and antioxidants with a big boost of protein is like your favorite lemon bar but way better for you! Nothing says early spring like the combination of lemon and blueberry. And what a beauty with its deep purple hue! Be sure to take a picture of yours and share it with us on Instagram.

Okay, it’s time to get blending!

Give these smoothies a try this week and let us know which one might be your favorite new way to usher in the spring cleanse! We’re kicking it off April 6. Are you joining us? Leave us a comment below and let’s shake off winter and step into spring together.
