Detox Lemon Spinach Smoothie

Do you detox? Honestly, I don't... I think our bodies are set up to detoxify all by themselves. Of course, we tend to put  a lot of stuff into our bodies that it really doesn't need ... too much sugar, caffeine, refined flour etc etc. And I for one will not be giving up all of that! So, to me, this smoothie is my way of putting a few good things into my body to make up for the junk. It's especially good when I have a sweet craving. The heat from the chili flakes and the tartness of the lemon seem to make the sweet craving go away...usually :)

Detox Lemon Spinach Smoothie -

Makes two small servings.


2 cups spinach
1/2 c frozen  blueberries

1/8-1/4 tsp chili flakes (depending on how much spice you can take)
