One of the ways we can give our digestive system a rest is through liquid-only days one day (or half day) a week. On these liquid-only days, it is recommended to consume an 8-ounce glass of liquid each hour. Herbal teas, infused waters, vegetable broths, “green” juices, and fruit smoothies are a few great ways to keep yourself feeling full and replenished.
Below is a great fruit smoothie recipe to enjoy on a liquid-only day!
- 1 large cup of frozen pineapple
- ½ large frozen banana
- ½ cup of water
- ½ cup of coconut water
- ¼ cup packed parsley leaves, fresh
- 2 tablespoons of avocado
- 1 teaspoon of fresh, grated ginger
- 1 lemon slice for garnish
Add the above ingredients to a blender and blend on the highest setting until smooth!
