The holiday glitz can leave your body on the fritz.

But there’s a delicious solution—and it’s only a blender away.

The Healthy New Year Booster Smoothie! It’s packed with the best ingredients to cleanse, alkalize, and rejuvenate you in a flash.

You could call this smoothie a hangover helper. But it’s really more than that because it doesn’t just fix you up—it boosts your digestion, energy, and even your healthy (or missing) glow.

Here’s how it does it:

It contains a dash of the master cleanse (lemon juice, cayenne pepper, and maple syrup), which kickstarts the cleansing process—and adds some heat. Kind of like a fruit-acid peel, you’ll feel this one tingling!

Daikon radish (you can find it at Whole Foods) is said to help break down fats. White roots and vegetables like daikon also have a suds-ing affect in our bodies and scrub out our digestive system.

Kale is for the poor over-loaded liver. It also boosts mood and adds a healthy winter glow to your skin with its super-dose of antioxidants.

And use some organic apple juice as a natural, seasonal sweetener.
