Looking for a cooling and refreshing smoothie for summer?  Looking for a little detox from your summer parties and travels?  I started making this smoothie for these reasons.  I wanted to start the day of with a little love for my body, especially after those nights of grilling with friends and a little too much wine.  So, I created this smoothie to be a super light green smoothie that is full of nutrients and anti-inflammation properties.  It also makes for a great post workout smoothie as well.  Celery is a permanent staple in my summer kitchen, so it seemed like a perfect fit for a smoothie.  I am always putting celery in my tuna salad or chicken salad during the week so I always have it on hand.  This summer I am growing it for the first time ever which is really exciting.

This smoothie is loaded with goodness. These are just some of the basics of what nutrients are in the smoothie. Check it…

Celery- anti-inflammation, high in Vitamin C, contains pthalides which aid in lowering blood pressure and cholesterol

Pineapple – anti-inflammation, high in Vitamin C, sinus inflammation

Banana- potassium, anti-oxidants and fiber

Ginger – anti-inflammation, digestive, nausea

Hemp seeds- high in omegas, complete protein source and fiber

Chia seeds- high in omegas, protein and fiber

Cheers to a summer of love and a little detox to start off your day,
