Now that we’re well into the Fall season and all of the sneezing and coughing moments are sure to begin, it’s super important to get all of your nutrients, especially by consuming whole foods.
Personally, when it comes to breakfast (mostly on weekdays), I tend to go for easy, grab-as-you-go recipes instead of something that requires a lot of effort and time.
That’s why smoothies are absolutely perfect for me. What about you?
If you’ve been an avid reader of Orchids + Sweet Tea, then you know that we’ve created a few great smoothie recipes that are not only jam-packed with nutrients, but are also truly tasty!

Healthy Detox Smoothies for the New Year is how I’ve decided to kick off my 2018. I believe that it’s super important to detoxify your body ever so often, especially with all the variety of things we tend to eat on a daily basis (good + bad). A little cleanse and “rest” for our digestive system does the body wonders, trust me! While many people drink Detox Smoothies by strictly eliminating calories and eating only foods and/or liquids that detoxify the body for a set amount of time; I chose to drink my detox smoothies in the space of breakfast to help start the day off right and allow my body to do a refresh and reset!
OK, so back to this recipe. Again, one of the best things about this smoothie is that it is a great boost in digestion and works as the perfect detox.
I’m sure that we are all well aware of detoxing and the stigmas that come along with it. However, I am a believer that detoxifying our bodies is a great thing since we do come across many toxins on a daily basis.
Whether you are a part of the Simple Veggies + Fruit detox movement, Smoothie Cleanse, Juice Cleanse, Sugar Detox, Hypoallergenic Detox, or anything else, we can all agree that detoxing can definitely be a good thing!

Before we dig into this recipe, did you know that Cucumber is an actual fruit and not vegetable? I know.
