Since being in quarantine, I’ve tried implementing healthier options into my day to day life. I’ve been on the hunt for a smoothie that would hydrate my body and give me plenty of vitamins. This detox smoothie is packed with not just vitamins, but also fiber and antioxidants! It will help to detoxify your body and boost your metabolism. Detox smoothies are known to combat feeling bloated and sluggish. Plus, they’re the key to clear, glowing skin!

If you love veggies, fruit, and nuts like me, this recipe is perfect for you! Even if you’re wary about drinking anything “green”, that’s okay! This recipe requires baby spinach, so you won’t taste the flavor. Instead, you will taste the banana and almond butter! You can even top this smoothie off with chia seeds, which is known as a source of omega-3 fatty acids. Enough about all the great benefits, let’s get to it and make this easy and beneficial detox smoothie!
