What is the quickest and most convenient way to provide your body with a high density of nutrients in a delicious and satisfying way?  Smoothies of course!  Smoothies are one of our favourite things to recommend because they are versatile, easy to incorporate nutritional supplements and can pack a great nutrient punch for the body.  Smoothies are also an excellent way to increase our intake of veggies and nutrients that are great at helping the body detoxify.  Here are a few of our favourite detoxification smoothie recipes for you to enjoy!
