Featured in our 7-day smoothie challenge, this blast recipe is designed to aid your bodies natural detoxification pathways and will make you feel alive and refreshed. The banana in the recipe not only acts as a sweet flavor base, but is also rich in pectin, a digestive enzyme that assists in the digestion process and alleviates the body of heavy metals through a process called chelation. Adding the kale and beetroot into the blast amplifies the fiber content, which binds to free radicals and helps eliminate waste from the body.
Finally, topping up the smoothie with coconut water will not only help blend the ingredients together but adds a hit of electrolytes and boosts your circulation. Increased circulation of more oxygen to the body supports the cells and organs through two processes; firstly, better oxygen circulation to the liver cleans the blood and leads to a healthier and stronger life, and secondly, since the liver will function better and more efficiently, it can clean your blood and excrete out any toxins.
