Red Smoothie Detox Factor
Some people struggle with their detox diet because there is not a wide enough selection of food textures available to them. It's OK eating fresh fruit and vegetables, but what do you do if you just need a bit of a change? A simple answer is to try a fruit smoothie.
A smoothie is a delicious, thick drink that is made from pure fruit. They are available pre-prepared in shops, but you can easily make your own at home. You just need to have a blender and a supply of your favorite fruits. Smoothies are generally made by blending fruit with a small amount of liquid ingredients. These liquids can either be yogurt or fruit juice.
The difference between a smoothie and a fruit juice is that the whole fruit is blended into a smoothie. With a juice the fibrous pulp is removed from the fruit leaving the nutritious liquid behind.
Here are a couple of smoothie recipes to get you started. Once you have tried these you'll see that they are really easy to make and you will be comfortable making your own.
2 slices of pineapple
1 mango (peeled)
1 passion fruit
3 fresh oranges
Cut and slice the pineapple. Remove the core and cut the flesh from the outer peel. Remove the inner flesh of the passion fruit. Peel the mango and remove the stone. Remove the flesh and seeds from the passion fruit. The seeds are OK to eat. Put the ingredients into the blender together with the juice from the oranges. Varying the amount of orange juice will allow you to get the consistency you prefer.
Banana and Strawberry Smoothie
1 banana (sliced)
Clean the strawberries and place in the blender with the sliced banana and juice from the 2 apples. Blend until the required consistency is made.
Red Smoothie Detox Factor as part of a natural body detox are becoming more and more popular. It seems we are turning more and more to natural solutions to health problems. This can only be a good thing but as with prescription medicines, it is wise to be cautious. This is why I recommend beginning with Detox smoothies rather than launching into a strict detox plan as a gentle introduction to detoxification and a healthier, more radiant you.
You can make them at home in a smoothie blender, smoothie maker or even a food processor. Try to use organic ingredients wherever possible. If this is not possible, you should ensure all fruits and vegetables are thoroughly washed before use. A great benefit of making them at home is that you can get the freshest possible smoothies. If you make too much or cannot use all of it straight away, any left-over mixture can be frozen to retain much of the goodness.
There are other supplements you could consider adding to your detox smoothies and these include vitamin c, probiotics and chlorophyll. You can also use dried fruits, soak these overnight and use the liquid in the smoothie as well. Flax seeds are also a great addition as they have many health benefits.
