Recipe: The Total Reboot New Year Smoothie
It’s designed for a full-body reboot: Each ingredient contains potent detoxifiers—and a great nutrition profile.
Protein-packed kale boosts alkalinity and calms inflammation, making it a great for food for releasing excess weight. Ginger plays backup by revving your digestion and circulation systems.
Humble celery is a natural diuretic that has the built-in bonus of hydrating electrolytes. (Buy it organic, though. It’s on the dirty dozen list!) Parsley can clear congestion and is a friend of your liver, spleen, and stressed-out adrenal glands. This means more energy and boosted immunity.
Dandelion root tea is a top liver detoxer, according to Traditional Chinese Medicine (and the many Western tea companies that bag it). And when your liver’s functioning optimally, it’s much better at removing waste, breaking down fats, and supporting your digestion and health.
Watch your New Year’s Eve hangover fade—and a lightness of mind and body return with each smoothie you make this month. —Jennifer Kass
