Nothing is quite like watermelon on a hot summer day, which is the primary ingredient of this smoothie. Watermelon is a great whole body cleanser, and particularly effective at cleansing the kidneys and liver. Cleaning out the toxins currently present in these organs frees them up to properly clear toxins in the future. It’s a win-win. There are even 3-day watermelon detox diets for those that really want to push the envelope.
Next, we have ginger, well known as a digestive aid, but also great for purging toxins from the body. As with watermelon, lemon juice also helps detoxify the liver. Frozen blueberries made their way into this smoothie not because they’re great cleansers, but for all their good nutrition. Rounding things out is a dash of sea salt for some added minerals.
