Every now and then it’s good to get a bit of an internal cleaning going on – well, actually, that should be happening on a fairly regular basis!
This smoothie is great any time of the year – it has lots of fibre to give your insides a gentle cleansing while the juice of lemon and lime will help alkalizing your body.
Coconut water is a natural electrolyte, and ginger does not only taste delicious, it also has a soothing effect on the stomach and can even relieve nausea and motion sickness.
RECIPE FOR A CLEANSING DETOX SMOOTHIE

1 lemon, juiced
1 lime, juiced
