As you guys know, we love all things skincare and beauty, so we thought we'd try out the latest detox trend and let you know what we thought.
Let's start by saying that this isn't the most famous or well-known detox smoothie out there. Of course, there's the simple and effective celery juice that does the job and leaves you feeling great. But, we stumbled upon something a little different when our founder was out for dinner. She couldn't help but notice that her friend's skin was glowing. When she asked her what she had been doing, her friend responded with "Miranda Kerr's Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie." Intrigued, we decided to do some research and give it a try!
- 2 Bananas
- 2 cups Wild Blueberries
- 1 cup Cilantro
- 1 cup Orange Juice
- 1 tsp Barley Grass juice powder
- 1 tsp Spirulina
- 1 small handful of Atlantic Dulse
- Optional: Water or Coconut Water or fresh Orange Juice to blend.

*Disclaimer* Now, we don't claim to be experts, but what we do know from the list of ingredients above is that blueberries are packed with antioxidants. Cilantro is great for detoxification, and orange juice is rich in vitamin C, which plays a crucial role in collagen synthesis (maintaining the skin's structure and elasticity). And, atlantic dulse, a type of seaweed, is filled with magnesium. So, it's clear that this smoothie should be packed with goodness.
