Green Cleanse Smoothie

Ah yes, time for another smoothie recipe!  This one will be the perfect remedy to an overindulgent season!  It is chock full of cleansing, alkalizing fruits and veggies to help clear out those pipes and get you out of the rich food blues!

1 apple – core and chop
1 lemon – I put the whole thing in, but if you are a little apprehensive then just use the juice
½ cup blueberries
½ cucumber
½ head romaine lettuce
½ bunch parsley

Just drop it all in the blender, add a tiny bit of water if needed, and blend until smooth.  It is like taking a scouring pad to the inside of your body – you will feel pure and clean after!

Note: this is a fairly advanced smoothie, as far as taste and texture go.  If you have been making them regularly then you will enjoy this one.  If you are new to smoothies, you might want to break yourself in slower, and try banana, blueberry and romaine to start.  Once you acquire a taste for green drinks, you can cut back on the higher sugar fruits, and increase the veggies for even more health benefits!

That looks pretty good, I'll have to give it a try! Fortunately, I've gotten used to the 'green drink' taste!
