Detox smoothies are a great way to “healthy-up” your normal diet. They are easy to make and also have incredible health benefits.

Although the human body has its own built-in detoxifying organs, our busy lives don’t always allow us to sustain healthy eating habits. Drinking at least one detox smoothie a day is the easiest way to add to your dietary routine, while also being the most delicious way to naturally purge toxins away.

Depending on the ingredients you use, they can help with weight loss, reduce overall amount of inflammation, sustain regular bowel movement, among many other health benefits.

So, why not try it out? Our advice: experiment with different smoothie recipes until you find the perfect combination for yourself!

Here are our top 5 favourite detox smoothies that we can’t get enough of!
