(This ‘throw-back’ article was originally published by Huckleberry Hill in 2017 to usher in the New Year.)
Nelly, a Huckleberry Hill subscriber, is a Registered Nurse that specializes in dietary issues and clean living. In November, she shared a day after Thanksgiving detox recipe, it was very popular. I asked Nelly to develop a simple ‘New Year’s Resolution Smoothie’. (Nelly lives in North Carolina with her extended family and is dedicated to living a balanced life.) Thank you Nelly for this fabulous New Year’s detox recipe.
According to Nelly, every ingredient serves a purpose in assisting your body in getting rid of toxins. This is a low calorie anti-inflammatory recipe. The pineapple aides in the digestion of protein. Apple (or un-sweetened apple juice/sauce with fiber) helps to sweep the intestines clean. Ginger is well known to ease the stomach and assist with digestion.
1 cup of your favorite no sugar added carrot juice or juice blend (use carrot in the blend). I used this:
½ cup organic diced pineapple in juice, no sugar added
½ cup apple organic juice with ½ cup unsweetened apple sauce (or 1 cup apple juice if you do not have apple sauce)
2 TBS. fiber
½ inch fresh ginger peeled and fine grated
½ cup pineapple juice (reserved from cubed pineapple)
1 cup ice
For a Probiotic boost (especially good for the stomach) blend in to this mixture 1 cup organic vanilla yogurt
Wishing you a blessed and healthy year. Follow your dreams, even if they take you all the way to the Pacific coast of California!
