Apple alkaloid smoothie recipe

A soothing and cleansing detox blend, full of green power

This detox blend is intensely hydrating and alkalizing. The pectin and mineral salts in the apples combine with the oxalic acid in the spinach for a powerful laxative effect to alleviate constipation and cleanse the colon. Cayenne gets things moving, too – but use a light hand or it’ll set your mouth on fire!

Serves: 2

Ingredients













What to do

1. Throw all of the ingredients (except the ice cubes) into your blender and blast on high for about 1 minute, until smooth.

2. Add the ice and blast for a few seconds more, until smooth and chilled.
