The Master Cleanse Green Smoothie


This morning I woke with the intent to drink my variation of the Master Cleanse– I do warm water, the juice of half a lemon, and two dashes of cayenne. Basically, I leave out the maple syrup. An hour later, I go and enjoy breakfast. The cleansing properties of the lemon, cayenne, and warm water are often enough to help me feel energized, and give myself a little reboot if I ate anything I shouldn’t have. I decided to convert this into a green smoothie, and I’m sharing because it was absolutely delicious! It’s always awesome when you choose function over flavor, but end up with good flavor anyway.  Imagine that same drink cold, with fruit and a little greens. I hope you try it!

  1. I haven’t try adding cayenne into my smoothies or lemon water. I usually just add it on my baked avocados / eggs etc. I should really try your method! Thanks for sharing 🙂
