detox cocktail with vodka: friday at five

I typically add a shot or two of vodka, but that’s just me.

INGREDIENTS

1 1/2 cups water
1 head organic romaine lettuce, chopped
1/2 of large bunch of organic spinach (or 3/4 small bunch)
3 or 4 stalks organic celery
1 organic apple, cored and chopped
1 organic pear, cored and chopped
1 organic banana
Juice of 1/2 organic lemon

PREPARATION

Add the water and chopped head of romaine and spinach to the blender. Starting the blender on a low speed, mix until smooth. Gradually moving to higher speeds, add the celery, apple, and pear. Add the cilantro and parsley if you choose. Fresh herbs, like cilantro and parsley, have cleansing properties that help extract heavy metals and other toxins from the body. Add the banana and lemon juice last. This recipe produces about 60 ounces. You can store the rest of the liquid for a day or portion it out and freeze.
