Summer Fresh & Full of Benefits

Summer Fresh & Full of Benefits

Quench your thirst, satisfy your hunger + DETOX all at the same time?! Yes, please.

This green machine smoothie has been my go-to for the past few weeks + I love it. I’ve been bringing it to work for an afternoon snack/pick me up + drinking it after dinner! It’s so damn refreshing + I legit feel healthy AF drinking it, kind of obsessed.

It’s also the perfect combination for eliminating bloat, clearing skin, hydration + cleansing. 

Cucumber, Mint, Lemon, Water, Ice + Blend.

The cucumber contains citrulline, an amino acid that has been shown to help the liver and kidneys filter and get rid of ammonia, which causes a lot of damage to our cells. The lemon adds a wonderful tartness and helps regulate digestion. Plus, the mint adds a refreshing quality while doubling the digestion benefits. 

Mint activates our salivary glands, and the glands that get our digestive enzymes going, which means it’s the perfect bevie after a meal, as it helps our digestion. You too will feel healthy AF, so drink up! Cheers!

Health & Happiness,
