New Years Detox Smoothie

Happy New Year! 2012 brought many changes to my life and I can only hope that 2013 will be as fun and exciting!

I thought about how I spent New Years Eve for 2012 and the three amazing girls that I spent it with. One year later and we are in such different places. One girl is married, one is spending this New Years with her new boyfriend (p.s. I introduced them), another girl got her dream job in environmental engineering, and then there is me…I’m moved to NYC! We have come a long way from cheap champagne and Chex Mix in the hotel room!

That’s us celebrating 2012!

So, if you are like me and will probably have a little too much champagne, this detox smoothie will give you an energy boost for New Years Day activities.

Have a happy and safe New Years!

    Best to you in NYC in 2013. Thanks for an inspiring year of recipes!

  7. Congrats on the move! I think one of my favorite traditions of New Year’s Eve is looking back at all the accomplishments and joys the past year held.

    We’re celebrating a return to sane eating on the Shine Supper Club this month, and this recipe would be a lovely contribution. I hope you’ll join us!

    Made one with rocket instead of spinach (sold out). Very nice but I think it could be much improved with a few dashes of Tabasco, thanks for the recipe
