Spinach apple orange and cucumber will make your smoothie delicious and enough sweet. Just blend everything and enjoy. If you don’t like ginger skip it.
Popeye’s favorite, spinach, contains a whopping 166 milligrams of glutathione per serving when eaten raw. Cook it, and it all goes away. Spinach also contains twice as much energy-boosting iron as other leafy greens. Spinach has also gained a lot of attention as a cancer-fighter, too.
Carrots are another food rich in glutathione, a protein that helps detoxify the liver. In addition to the detox properties, carrots contain good amounts of vitamin C, B6 and potassium. They also loaded with vitamin A and K, too! It’s best to eat these raw.
You can use any fruit of your choice. Fruit gives sweetness and enhance the taste of your smoothie.
