Full of alkalinity and antioxidants, this mega-green monster starts with cucumber. That means less extra water + more nutrient density to kick up your day!

Notes
  1. 1. This recipe doesn't call for ice. Ayurvedic nutrition teaches that that when you drink or eat cold foods, you slow the rate at which food is digested. That said, you're welcome to toss in a couple cubes if you prefer your smoothie cold.
  2. 2. Kris' original recipe was juiced. This is a smoothie. You're getting more fiber with this recipe, but if you own a juicer and would prefer to make it as a juice, follow her original recipe found at http://www.prevention.com/weight-loss/diets/25-delectable-detox-smoothies.
  3. 3. If you'd prefer a thinner, lighter smoothie, add 1/2 cup water.
