Out of the box

Detox Smoothie

Back when I traveled to New York City for work on a regular basis, I always stopped by Blue Dog Cafe for a salad and smoothie or juice before hopping on the train home. My favorite out of the smoothies/juices on their menu was the “Glorious Detox”, which was a welcoming recharge after all the heavy company lunches, suppers and drinks. However, even on the company’s tab, I felt guilty for spending $9 on it, so I began making my own at home.

Detox Smoothie

Ingredients, makes 2 cups

1/2 of an apple, peeled and chopped

1/2 of a pear, peeled and chopped (I like using Asian pears, but Bosch works, too)

1/3 cup chopped frozen pineapple

3/4 cup aloe vera juice

1/2 inch ginger, peeled

Steps

Detox Smoothie 2

Toss all of the ingredients into a blender and blend on high until smooth. If you prefer it to be more of a juice. you can let it sit, so the juice settles and separates, but I never mind the extra fiber.
