Clean Blueberry Detox Smoothie

by guest blogger Candice Kumai, clean-eating chef and cookbook author

Still feeling full from Thanksgiving? Had too many calories and not enough nutrients over the past few days? This deep-blue smoothie is a detox powerhouse that can help you get back on the clean-eating track: Just one serving packs 50 percent of your daily requirement for vitamin C, 10 percent of your vitamin A, 8 percent of your iron, and 8 percent of your potassium.

Not too shabby for a flavorful single glass.
