Add this delicious smoothie to your diet to help support the natural detoxification process of your body and boost your gut health. The detox process can work better by boosting the body with certain nutrients, avoiding certain foods which can cause inflammation and bloating. I am an advocate of bringing balance and equilibrium to the body by supporting it holistically.

I will be sharing with you recipes I love and tips to help support your body’s wellness and hopefully motivate you to spend more time taking care of yourself. This particular recipe helps reduce bloat, supports your digestive health boosts liver health and immunity.
