After the long weekend your energy may be low, motivation lacking, and your stomach may be in shambles from overdosing on bbq’d meats, and fruity cocktails. You’re in need of a quick and easy detox smoothie to flush out the toxins of weekends past my friend! So stick a tiny, fancy, colored umbrella in this, and remember that this is a short work week!
Lemon-Lime Detox Smoothie Recipe
- 1/2 medium lemon, peeled and deseeded

- juice from 1 large orange

Add all the ingredients to your blender and blend on high for 30 seconds or until smooth.
|Citrus fruits are some of the best for their detoxing properties due to the high water and acidic content.|
