Love your Liver Smoothie

This smoothie is super rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals as well as having many immune boosting properties. Studies show that beets protect liver cells from harmful chemicals while dandelion greens are known to improve liver function by enhancing the flow of bile. Say ‘I love you Liver’ by drinking one of these nourishing tonics every morning!

1 small beet (juiced)
3 to 4 beet green leaves
3 to 4 dandelion leaves
½ lemon
2 apples
1 inch fresh ginger
1 cup water

Process all ingredients through your juicer. Otherwise, if you have a powerful motor, blend all together in your blender until smooth. Should be drunk first thing in the morning after consuming an 8oz glass of pure water with lemon.
