I needed this Golden Detox Smoothie today! I have eaten so much junk over the holidays, I am ready to clean things up in my system. This is the perfect transition smoothie too, it is naturally sweet and delicious and loaded with so much that is good for you!
I love the bright color of our Golden Detox Smoothie. I think the golden color from the yellow and orange fruits and carrots give it a much more appetizing look than most detox smoothies. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not opposed to green smoothies, but sometimes the color is a little hard to choke down, especially after you have been eating bad.
Another thing that I love about this smoothie us that it’s really filling. It actually made more than I could fit in my glass in the picture above, and it’s only 280 calories! If you want to make it even more filling and sustaining you can add a little bit of vanilla protein powder, just be aware that it will also change your calorie total.
Another great thing about this smoothie is that it is packed with vitamin C. This is a great one to eat when you feel a cold coming on, or just to stay on top of the cold season in general. Whenever I start feeling a sore throat, scratchy voice, or achy body I like to load up on vitamin rich foods and it really seems to help my body kick the sickness. Even when I am not sick, I know I just feel better and am less tired when I am getting more vitamins in.
