Lepre-clean

Ingredients

  • 1 persian cucumber
  • 1 apple - chopped
  • 5 oz honeydew
  • 1/2 inch ginger
  • 1/2 lemon - juiced

  • 1 cup water

If you find yourself waking up after a fun night of St. Patrick’s day revelries with a bit of a headache, this traditional detox smoothie should have you right as rain in no time. Flaxseeds contain a healthy dose of Omega-3s, fiber and antioxidants, and have been shown to lower cholesterol and even possibly protect against hot flashes. Add in some anti-inflammatory power from ginger, some hydration from cucumber and honeydew, and an alkalizing effect from lemon, and you’ve got a smoothie that will give your body and your mind a clean feel, no matter what went on the night before.
