6 Detox Smoothies You'll Love

If there were one word to describe January, we’d say it’s lighter. While the holiday season is probably best described as full—of family, friends, parties, eating and then some — January is more of a quiet, low-key time to ease into the new year, and often a time to let go of the burdens of the past. One of the many ways we lighten our load is by choosing fresher foods to counteract the heavy holiday fare we consumed in November and December. Looking to kick off 2013 feeling fresh, light and energized? Here are some of our favorite detox smoothies from around the web. Cheers!

  • With spinach, lemongrass and coconut water, this green juice is nutrient-packed and ultra-hydrating. (recipe)

  • This cucumber smoothie is not only full of vitamin C, potassium and magnesium, it also contains silica, which helps improve complexion and keeps skin looking radiant. (recipe)

  • Folate-rich beets help the body develop red blood cells, which remove toxins and waste from your system. Combined with blueberries, this smoothie packs an antioxidant punch. (recipe)

  • Tart, sweet, and dairy-free, this cherry smoothie is full of antioxidants, fiber and a good dose of health-boosting kale. (recipe)

  • This green smoothie is banana-free for the banana haters out there, and has a nice kick thanks to the ginger and lemon, both of which help detoxify the body and get it back on track. (recipe)

  • This tropical green smoothie is alkalizing, which helps reduce low-grade inflammation and protects the body against disease. (recipe)

    red blood cells remove toxins and waste from your system? em.. nope. they transport oxygen. I’m sorry I couldn’t let that one go. Smoothies do look good, though.
