Green Detox Smoothie

Oh my goodness, it feels so good to be home.

My time in Europe these past few weeks was such a gift, and filled to the brim with so many wonderful memories with friends.  But between the six-course meals each night on the Mediterranean cruise, paella in Spain, and pub food galore with friends all over England, I think it’s safe to say that I probably ate more carbs (and specifically, potatoes!) in the past month than ever before!

So upon returning home, my friend Sarah and I thought it would be fun to try going “raw” for a week.  Nothing cooked, no caffeine, no alcohol — just straight raw ingredients, which mostly includes fresh produce and nuts.  I will post a summary of how it went at the end of this week, and then I’m also planning to share some of the recipes next week.

However, the first “detox” smoothie that I made yesterday was too good not to share right away!  I love green smoothies, but this one may be one of my new favorites.  It is sweet and simple, but packed with all sorts of healthy goodness that I loved.  No arm-twisting necessary to enjoy this green smoothie for a meal!
