Detoxifying Superfood Smoothie & Whole Living's 21 day Challenge

My much anticipated issue of Whole Living has just arrived to my delight!  If you do not have a subscription make sure to hit the news-stand to get your Feb. 2012 issue.  This issue offers a 21 day challenge/detox/action plan packed with awesome recipes to help you ditch the holiday fluff and fit back into your skinny jeans.  From green smoothies, to juices, to soups, and salads, you'll find about 25 cleanse approved recipes plus a bunch of other great healthy living articles.  You can also find all of this (plus more healthy recipes) at Whole Living online if you can't wait for your copy.

This morning my smoothie was inspired by their recipe for grapefruit, carrot, ginger juice.  Carrot and Grapefruit are both great liver cleansers, and i don't know about you, but i know my liver could use a good flushing right about now!  I plan to do Beaming Cleanse in January, but think it will be even more beneficial after taking a few solid weeks to eat very clean.  Here's what i came up with.  Not only is it a super pretty pink color, but it tasted fab too!

Detoxifying Superfood Smoothie

5 carrots juiced (about 1/4 cup fresh pressed carrot juice)
4-6 oz water
2 ice cubes
1 small to medium pink grapefruit
1 scoop Vanilla Sun Warrior Protein Powder
1/2 tsp maca

Blend in a vitamix or other high powered blender
