I’m guessing right about now you’re having some serious cookie regret. I only say that because that’s usually where I’m at Christmas week. So much indulgence, so many stretchy pants.

How about we offset some of that decadence with a healthy, 5 ingredient superfood smoothie? That’s what I thought we could all use…

Frozen blueberries and blackberries for adding to our Vegan Detox Smoothie

This smoothie starts with a base of frozen berries. I can’t bear going without berries all winter long, so snagging frozen ones at the store is the perfect solution. Plus, they make a healthy and delicious base for smoothies.

Next we add in:

Fruit juice
& A frozen banana

So creamy. So delicious.

Recently, I’ve also been digging silken tofu in my smoothies for added protein instead of almond or peanut butter, which I often do in this smoothie. But I count it as optional since it’s already seriously creamy and nutritious as is.

Oh mama. So much detoxifying goodness in the form of:

Omega 3 fatty acids
Vitamin C
Folic acid
etc., etc.

Does the body (seriously) good. Cheers!

(P.S. You should totally tell me the best gift you got this Christmas. I seriously want to know.)
