Pink Smoothie Recipe: Featuring Angela Lidden's Detox Smoothie


Now that we are finally getting into some spring and summer weather, I decided to feature a smoothie recipe. This recipe is not my own, and I used Angela Lidden's recipe, from her well known blog Oh She Glows. She has a fabulous vegan cookbook, so if you are looking for more healthy and hearty recipes make sure you add this book to your collection! This is called her Pink Power Detox Smoothie. It tastes delicious and has some awesome health perks. Here is the recipe and more on why I featured it:

I think the nutritional values above for this smoothie say it all. It is an excellent source of healthy carbohydrates and healthy fats. It provides us with a TON of fiber to help the body remove toxins and waste. It contains a high amount of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that helps fight free radicals in the body. It contains other important vitamins and minerals. Lemon juice helps support the liver. Coconut water provides the body with elelctrolytes to help with hydration. Need I say more? Go and make this smoothie!!
