Super Bowl Detox Smoothie

This morning I was in dire need of a Super Bowl Detox.

I blame these:

And these:



And definitely these:

And we can't forget the (unphotographed) margaritas. Ouch.

A smoothie made with all kinds of nutritious stuff thrown in fit the bill perfectly for a little healthy pick-me-up after a night of indulgences.

Have you ever seen the so-called "Green Monster" smoothies? Well, this was definitely a Green Monster.


Don't freak out on me. It doesn't taste green....it tastes like a normal fruity smoothie. What makes it green is the big handfuls of baby spinach that add great nutrients, but add no flavor whatsoever.

The best thing about a smoothie is that you can make it however you want and use up fruit that's on it's last leg. In my case I had half a container of fresh blueberries that were about to go to Fruit Heaven, but instead got to become part of this scrumptious and nutritious smoothie. That's a much better way to go, if you ask me! (We'll just ignore the fact that they got pulverized in a blender...at least it was a quick death!)

Here's what my smoothie was composed of, but feel free to get creative with your own and use up what you have!

  3. My "detox" meal is always stir-fried veggies and brown rice - I find that I'm craving it when I've had too much simple carbs or bad fats!
