Use green leafy vegetables and strong spices like ginger and garlic. Add spirulina, barley grass or wheatgrass because its high in chlorophyll. Lemon or lime gives vitamin C. The smoothie is bitter but you can add apple or raw honey for sweetness and a tablespoon of hemp oil or linseed oil for good omega 3. Slippery elm is soothing and beneficial for digestive health.
