It’s the start of a new year- woo hoo! It’s a great time to get more easy to digest smoothies into our daily lives, to keep us on track with our Beauty Detox lifestyle. This fresh herbs in this Peppermint Dream Smoothie Recipe will help you feel energized and clean from the inside out.
This smoothie will provide us with the vitamins and antioxidants needed to not only keep our immune systems in check, but curb any desire to jump off track. Stay on the path- at least most of the time- Beauty!! xo
You may have heard through your culinary journeys that mint is a great appetizer or palate cleanser…but did you know it also promotes digestion? Indeed it does! It also soothes our guts of indigestion or inflammation from less than ideal diet choices (which we ALL make sometimes).
It’s as simple as sipping on a cup of mint tea, to bring relief to your gut, when needed. It’s worth trying, rather than reaching for those Tums. There’s so much that nature has given us to heal naturally and keep ourselves our best- it’s really incredible when we get really into exploring natural remedies.
Let’s not forget that mint is packed with vitamins, antioxidants and phytonutrients (including vitamin A, beta-carotene, vitamin C, folate, vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine), riboflavin and thiamin). And here is preliminary (but not conclusive, yet) research that mint can improve the activity of the brain.
Give it a try!
Feeling tired or or sluggish after all the festivities? Why don’t you give this pepper-minty smoothie a try! It may be just the refreshing boost you need to help abate food cravings and help you feel amazing.
