This detox smoothie from Alexandra Maul (at redandhoney.com) is thick, and I love it for breakfast.

Green smoothies are also a great on-the-go, healthy snack, especially during dangerous holiday dessert season. So, for sure you can enjoy that cookie exchange, but make sure you get your green on with this smoothie as well!

As Alexandra Maul says…

This festive detox smoothie is a great way to sneak your greens in while enjoying some of the season’s best flavors. Cranberry and orange are a match made in heaven – it’s one of my favorite combinations. I add a sprinkle of cinnamon to take it over the top!

The cashews and hemp seeds add some fantastic healthy fats and protein (and make it super thick), and the orange zest and cinnamon provide a fun holiday touch.

Cranberries are great for liver detoxing, which is perfect for this time of year with all of the indulging in treats!

If you’re a green smoothie newbie, try just one small handful of spinach – it’s very mild, I promise! You can’t taste the spinach.

For the more adventurous, try baby kale or “power greens” (a mix of chard, kale, and spinach)…
