Ginger Detox Twist

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 oz collard greens
  • 2 persian cucumbers - chopped
  • 1 apple - chopped
  • 1 meyer lemon - peeled
  • 1/2 inch ginger
  • 1/2 tsp chlorella
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

A cross between a mandarin orange and a lemon, meyer lemons were originally used for purely aesthetic purposes before their benefits were discovered. Sweet and not tart like regular lemons, meyer lemons have such a thin layer of white pith between their skin and fruit that they can actually be eaten skin and all. Chlorella is a type of algae that grows in fresh water, and is often used as a natural treatment for digestive issues and fibromyalgia. Ginger is a fantastic anti-inflammatory, and collard greens contain a big dose of vitamin A, C and even a little bit of protein. If traditional detox drinks prove too harsh for your stomach, this gentler version should give you all the nutritional benefits without the intense stomach side effects.
