7 Healthy and Detox Smoothie Recipes to Start the New Year Right!

I’m a huge fan of smoothies, mainly because I find it the easiest way to eat all my veggies in one gulp. (I hate vegetables.) They’re great for breakfast on-the-go, post work-out, or even if you’re looking to clean your system. All you need is a few ingredients and a blender and you’re good to go. So why not start off the year right with some of these healthy smoothies? From recipes packed with  Vitamin C to super energy blueberry smoothies… I rounded up some of my favorites!
