Is it time for a detox?
The days following Christmas Day are always full of leftovers. With far too much food for just one day, there are most definitely refrigerators around the world that are chocka full of leftover meats, desserts, chips and dips, cheeses and other rich treats.
If your goal has always been to not overindulge during the holiday season, you’ve come to the right place! Our blog is full of wholefood recipes that not only taste delicious but also provide you with a balanced variety of wholefoods that will keep you feeling indulged but healthy.
And this recipe is no exception. In fact our Raspberry Coconut Cloud Detox Smoothie is so delicious, you’ll be heading straight for this over the leftover trifle! Easy to make, packed full of antioxidants and nutrients, with a summery flavour that will take you to sunny days, wherever you are in the world.
A holiday detox can be a bit daunting, with thoughts of green juice recipes, detox smoothie recipes, and far too many celery sticks. Make it easy on yourself by sticking to delicious, fresh (or frozen) fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds, eggs, and Manuka Honey to keep your immune system in tip top shape.
With the goodness of coconut, raspberries, banana, and spices added to your UMF 15+ Manuka Honey, this will feel no more like a detox than a piece of mouth watering Christmas cake with brandy custard.
Grab your blender, lets go!

Add all of the smoothie ingredients (minus the 2 tablespoons of coconut cream) to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth. You may need to stop the blender and add more almond milk as desired, to thin out the smoothie.
Next, grab your glass and add the two tablespoons of coconut cream to the bottom. Use a spoon to spread the coconut cream up the sides of the glass.
Pour the smoothie in the glass, and top with additional coconut cream, a drizzle of manuka honey and/or chopped fresh raspberries and almonds, if desired.
