Incredible Smoothies Lemon-Lime Detox Smoothie

Submitted by: KDSKYWALKER

Introduction

Incredible smoothies by Tracy Russell. "Lemons, limes and other citrus fruits rank highly for their detoxing properties. They are among the most water rich fruits which help flush toxins out of your body. The fiber in lemon, lime, orange and grapefruit “scrubs” your intestines and helps moves toxins out.
This smoothie combines the sour flavor of lemon-lime with the sweetness of banana and orange for a delicious blend. Added to the mix are dandelion greens, believed to be one of the top cleansing greens you can eat. If you don’t have access to dandelion greens, simply use a different leafy green such as kale, chard, collards or even spinach.
Since this is a detox smoothie recipe, I recommend that you use only organic ingredients since conventional produce may have pesticide residues."
