Blueberry Detox Smoothie.
Unsweetened almond milk: we always have almond milk in our fridge because it’s our favorite dairy-free milk but feel free to use any other milk you like or have on hand Canned coconut cream: makes this healthy blueberry smoothie extra thick and dairy-free but feel free to use any brand of plant-based yogurt (KiteHill is our favorite for smoothies), Greek yogurt or Skyr yogurt you like Unsalted Cashew Butter: my favorite way to add healthy fats and extra protein to smoothies for anyone that doesn’t have or like protein powder. Feel free to add any other nut butter, such as almond butter or even sunflower seed butter if you prefer this smoothie to be nut-free. Fresh Raspberries: adds a touch of natural sweetness without the need for any added sugar but feel free to swap in more fresh strawberries or even pitted cherries if you like Blueberries: I prefer to use frozen blueberries since they help to make the smoothie creamy and thick. You can either buy bagged frozen blueberries or freeze your own local fresh blueberries (perfect when summer wild blueberries are in season).
This smoothie is loaded with ingredients to help support your body’s natural detox organs, including wild blueberries and fresh cilantro. As strange as cilantro might sound as an addition to a smoothie, it’s surprisingly delicious!

Wild Blueberries: These wild berries are loaded with antioxidants that may help to repair oxidative damage in the body, and they may help draw heavy metals out of brain tissue. Wild blueberries are thought to have extra phytochemicals that cultivated blueberries don’t, and they are easily available in the freezer section at most grocery stores. Fresh Cilantro. Cilantro has been found to bind toxic heavy metals that can be found in the body, like arsenic, aluminum, lead, and mercury. It is also thought to help loosen them from our tissues, and may help eliminate them from the body. You can read more about cilantro’s benefits here. Banana. Though some people fear the sugar in banana, it’s loaded with manganese which is important for healthy brain function and are thought to help reduce damage from free radicals. The fiber in bananas may also help prevent constipation. (If you don’t love bananas, try using a few pitted dates instead, for added sweetness, fiber, and iron.) Avocado. Eating fat stimulates the release of bile from the gallbladder, making avocado an ideal addition to a detox smoothie. Avocados contain monosaturated fatty acids, which are thought to lower “bad” cholesterol and raise the “good” HDL cholesterol. Orange Juice. Oranges are known for being high in vitamin C, which is thought to help the body rid itself of toxins, while also boosting the immune system. For the most health benefits, use freshly squeezed orange juice, or even a whole orange without seeds to get the benefit of the fiber, too.
