Loaded with nutrient-dense, anti-inflammatory ingredients that gently detoxify the liver and body, this smoothie is an ideal health-promoting treat or meal replacement.

 

INGREDIENTS

1 cup full-fat coconut milk*

1/2 medium beet, peeled & chopped

1/2 granny smith apple, seeded & cored

1 cup fresh dandelion greens

1 carrot, chopped

1/2 cup ice 

1 scoop vanilla or unflavored/unsweetened Paleo Protein or Paleo Meal**

1 inch fresh turmeric, peeled or 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder

Pinch black pepper

Wholesome sweetener to taste, if needed 

 

Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.  If using a high-speed blender, add the protein after the rest of the ingredients are pureed to ensure proteins are not damaged.  Pulse the smoothie to incorporate the delicate proteins.  

*Avocado and filtered water make a nice substitution for milk.  Keep in mind that healthy fats are key for proper body function, blood sugar regulation, and satiety.
