A soothing and cleansing detox blend, full of green power

apple-alkalaid-smoothie-recipe

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
