If a sweet shake is what you’re after, this won’t be your bag. BUT, if you’d like a cleansing and detox smoothie to kick-start your 2016 good-health-resolution, here’s the ticket. Sweet, it’s not. Tart, yes. Healthy, yes. Chock-full of vitamins and omega-3s it is. Why are these important? They rid the body of environmental toxins, pesticides and harmful minerals. And hey, with tart apples and cinnamon it can’t be all that bad, can it?
Start your new year with a detox drink and then pat yourself on the back for taking care of you. We ladies need to do this more, don’t we? Enjoy!
