5 Summer Smoothies To Refresh, Refuel & Detox
Refresh and detox for the energy you need to enjoy the dog days of summer (not to mention, to keep that waistline in check). Here are five summer smoothies to have you feeling refreshed, refueled and light.
Great for: Breakfast
½ cup packed cilantro, woody end of stems removed (you can leave most of the stem, however; it’s packed with flavor)
1 cup packed arugula
1 cup coconut milk (I like to use my homemade coconut cashew milk)
1 cup chunked pineapple (fresh or frozen)
1 ripe banana
½ an avocado
1 tablespoon hulled hemp seeds
½ teaspoon turmeric
½ teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of sea salt
Pinch of black pepper
- Blend together greens, hulled hemp seeds, and milk for 1 minute.
- Add the rest of ingredients and blend until very smooth.
