Liver friendly green smoothie

One of the easiest ways to spring clean your body is by committing to have a green smoothie, full of leafy greens, every day. Try this smoothie recipe from Karen Niven Naturopath.


½ quantity of coconut water
½ quantity of water
½ a lemon
A handful of leafy greens (kale, parsley, spinach, silver beet, chard, or any other green vegetable that can be wrapped around your finger). It is advisable to rotate your greens rather than have the same one continuously
1 green apple
1 tablespoon each of Bestow Be Cleansed
and Bestow Beauty Oil
Sweeten with stevia if required

Cut the lemon and apple into smaller pieces to be kinder to your blender. You may wish to peel the lemon (but leave the pith) and apple if they are conventionally grown or you would prefer your drink to have a smoother consistency. However, lots of goodness is found in the peel if they are organically grown so you may work up to leaving them on in time. Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend thoroughly until smooth. Sweeten to taste with Stevia. Stevia doesn’t spike your insulin levels like other sweeteners and it is available at your local organic store or health food shop.
