Our healthy liver smoothie recipe contains ingredients that are proven to keep your liver healthy and detoxified. This recipe is very high in fiber and vitamins A and C. The liver's normal function is to remove toxins from food and your body's metabolic wastes. It's the major organ for metabolism which needs cleansing every once in a while. Lycium Berries are superb for the liver and act as a blood tonic; the Milk Thistle seeds help to protect the liver and the lemon juice acts in a regenerative fashion. The liver cells live for approximately for 18-24 months so you can drink this smoothie regularly until your liver cells regenerate.

Ingredients: 
2 tablespoons of ground milk thistle seeds
1/3 cup lycium berries
1 cup lemon juice
1 1/2 cups ice
Instructions: 
  1. Grind the milk thistle seeds and soak in pure water (distilled, reverse osmosis, filtered, etc.) overnight.
  2. Put the lycium berries in a blender until well chopped up.
  3. Add the milk thistle seeds and the water in which they have been soaking.
  4. Add the lemon juice and ice cubes. Alternatives: use pineapple juice or pineapple-coconut juice.
  5. Blend until perfect consistency is achieved.
Tips:
