Start the New Year Fresh with Detox Smoothies
After months of back-to-back holidays all centered around high-calorie drinks, rich home-cooked food, and decadent sweets, it’s no wonder why so many people opt to start the New Year healthy.
Specialty juices and smoothies fit the bill perfectly – not just because they taste great, but because they’re full of detoxifying and/or antioxidant properties and made from the most natural of ingredients. Whether it’s a vamped up exercise agenda, or a healthy new eating regimen that people are resolving to take on in the New Year, everyone can add the ease and deliciousness of smoothies to their schedules. Smoothies allow you to drink all the delicious goodness of a variety of fruits and vegetables up in one serving!
