Detox Smoothie (plant-based, gluten-free)

Detox Smoothie

I drink this detox smoothie most mornings now. It's a wonderful collection of superfoods that can clean out toxins from the body and leave the mind full of positive energy.

As another boost to your day, here is an easy 2-breath exercise from Plum Village that brings me back to a calmer place of rest and healing:

Breathing in, I know I am breathing in

Breathing out, I smile

Breathing in, I know I have a body

Breathing out, I relax my whole body

This is recipe #229 of our 1,000 Food Experiments to create sustainable meals for our family and hopefully yours.

  • Blender
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 orange
  • 1 tsp powdered wheat grass/spirulina (e.g. Amazing Greens powder)
  • 2 tbsp non-dairy yogurt
  • 1/4 cup soy milk
  1. First, gather all your ingredients together and put them lovingly into your blender. Then, enjoy all the colors and textures you have assembled.

  2. Next, blend your ingredients several times until the mixture is smooth. Pause to stir or add a bit more soy milk if the blender gets stuck. When it’s to your liking, pour into your favorite glass or mug. Finally, enjoy your detox smoothie!
