Post-Feast Dandelion Detox Smoothie


This light and refreshing smoothie is a great afternoon snack and a wonderful way to support your body’s detoxification processes. Dandelion root tea and lemon aid the liver and digestive system, while berries and flaxseeds are a wonderful source of antioxidants.

Tip: You can save time by boiling the tea ahead of time and then letting it cool in the refrigerator. If you prefer this option, boil 1½ cups of water, add the tea bag and let it steep for 15 minutes; remove the tea bag, and then cool the tea in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight. Enjoy in a smoothie when cold!
