Mean Green Apple Cucumber Smoothie

So can we talk about the detox smoothies?  I mean they are everywhere… it’s a great term, the word carries with it a connotation of new and fresh… starting over.  But if we are being honest here, much like the word “earthy” is a polite way of saying “tastes like dirt” in regards to smoothies “detox” is just a nice way of saying “hey, don’t make any plans that involve being away from a toilet”.

Okay maybe that is a little dramatic.  I mean we’re not talking the eye-drops-in-the-drink evacuation here, but this will most definitely get the job the done… if ya know what I’m sayin.  And so on that note, give this guy a shot the next time that you need a… ummmm detox:
