3. The ‘Clean yo liver’ smoothie- This smoothie does just as it says…I know, I’m so clever. It it great for detoxing your liver, the body’s “filter”.

– 1 c. mint leaves

– 2 bananas

– 4 ice cubes

– 1 tbsp. ginger

– 1 c. pineapple

– 1-3 c. water

Blend until smooth, and I mean smooth, the ginger can be a pain to get out of your teeth. And CHUG! 🙂

Always remember to look for “ACE” vitamins. Vitamin A (spinach, carrots, broccoli, sweet potatoes, and melons). Vitamin C (peppers, citrus fruits, beans, nuts, and all leafy greens). Vitamin E (wheat germ, leafy greens, nuts and whole grains).
