Detox Kale and Spinach Soup! It tastes good for real!

Due to popular demand I am sharing my ultimate detox smoothie recipe! This is the smoothie I used on my cleanse. In 2 weeks I lost over 2% body fat and about 5lbs. In three weeks (I know, I’m crazy), I lost just over 3% body fat. Unlike a juice fast, this recipe gives a lot o protein for muscle repair. Vegetables do have a certain percentage o f protein naturally, but for someone who hits the weights a few times a week, this smoothie gives more aminos for the muscles to repair.

1 cup kale
1 cup spinach
1-2 tbsp fresh cilantro
½ of a tomato
1 cucumber
½ an avocado
½ lime (squeeze the juice)
1 tbsp cumin
½ tbsp turmeric
½ tbsp curry
½ tbsp Himalayan crystal salt( or sea salt)
1-2 servings of unflavored plant fusion protein powder
2-3 cups of water

Combine all ingredients into a blender. I happen to have a vitamix so I can gently warm the smoothie so it’s more like a soup. If you don’t have one of these marvelous blenders, you can blend all the ingredients and then to warm it, pour it in a sauce pan and warm on low (rule to keep it raw is to be able to place your finger in the pan without having to remove it as a check) and keep the soup under 104 Fahrenheit.

I recommend drinking two of the above servings throughout the day while on the cleanse to make sure you get enough calories. You may also want to incorporate a salad for lunch or dinner if you need some crunch during your cleanse.
Good Luck. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me
Happy Cleansing!!!
