Detox Strawberry Lemonade Smoothie Recipe

A Detoxing Treat: Strawberry Lemonade Smoothie

The downsides of overindulging aren't just immediate: in addition to that bloated feeling, you also have to deal with constant cravings for all the high-sugar or fatty foods you've been eating. If you've been guilty of overindulging this weekend, trick your taste buds into thinking they're getting a treat with this delicious detoxing strawberry lemonade smoothie.

This smoothie will remind you of drinking a tall glass of strawberry lemonade on a hot day, but without the added sugar normally found in the refreshing treat. In fact, this smoothie only relies on the natural sweetness of strawberries plus a few dates (to add more sweetness, if needed). The lemon helps the body naturally cleanse, while the strawberries provide well over the daily recommended intake of vitamin C, which has been shown to help burn fat. And not only that, the added spinach helps regulate your digestive system, and you won't even taste it!

Read on for the recipe.
