A spicy goji berry smoothie recipe for holiday detoxing


The office party has spiked eggnog. Your BFF just hand-delivered some homemade Christmas cookies. And mom called to confirm that, yes, you will be enjoying some of her home-cooked ham at your family dinner… or else. Needless to say, your plan to make it through the holidays while maintaining your healthy habits has gone a bit off track.

To help you reset without stress, we tapped Heather Cox of Eat Real Food for a quickie detox smoothie recipe you can sip on all season long.

“This spicy goji berry smoothie is always a great way to kick start your metabolism, as it contains cayenne pepper and the anti-inflammatory spice, turmeric,” Cox explains.

Whip one up in your blender between champagne toasts and indulgent treats—because it is the holidays, after all. —Jamie McKillop

Spicy Goji Smoothie

2 oranges, peeled
1 pinch cayenne pepper
1 cup coconut water
1/4 cup fresh or frozen mango
1 small handful goji berries
1 pinch of turmeric

Throw everything into a blender until smooth. Serve immediately.

Want something a little more indulgent? This good-for-you turmeric milkshake is insanely delicious.
