mug of warm detox tea

Have you ever woke up and felt purely exhausted even after a full night of sleep? Have you ever started to feel weighed down, lazy or lethargic for no real reason? These feelings may be caused by too many toxins in your body. Toxins are simply unnatural chemical compounds in your body. Essentially, they are things that just shouldn’t be inside. They can build up and make your body feel terrible.

Various toxins enter your body in all sorts of ways. There may be toxins in your toothpaste, they may enter your body through lotions, or you can ingest toxins by eating unhealthy foods.

Toxins can build up in your liver which is your bodies filter. Your liver processes all the toxins but, after a while, they can start to build up. You can tell if your liver is full of toxins in a number of ways. Your eyes may appear chronic yellowish, you may have swelling in your legs or ankles, you might have itchy skin and you may start suffering from fatigues. It all sounds terrible!

That is why drinking a detox tea a few times a week is essential. Detox drinks will help clean your liver and detoxify your body. When you start incorporating detox beverages into your routine, you will instantly see how much better you feel.

You will start having more energy, feeling less bloated and even have clearer skin. When your body is clean on the inside, you will notice the effects right away.

There are lots of cleansing ingredients out there but they aren’t all tasty or something you want to eat all the time. That is why we created a delicious, detox tea that you won’t mind drinking regularly. In fact, you may want to drink it every day! It is so easy to make our detox tea that you can make it every day!

The first power packed ingredient that we put into our tea is apple cider vinegar. Apple cider vinegar has been shown to detox the liver. It contains enzymes, minerals and probiotics that are beneficial for your health.

Lemon juice is our next healthy ingredient. Lemon juice has lots of antibacterial properties. It also contains tons of vitamin c, which can boost your immunity. Fresh ginger is added to our mix as an antimicrobial. Apple cider vinegar, ginger and lemon juice are also delicious and make a wonderful tasting tea.

Growth, let’s take our drink another step further. We need more detox ingredients! Ground cinnamon is the perfect addition. The antioxidants in cinnamon help detoxify your body. Cinnamon can also help fight infections which are great when you are trying to detox.

Maple syrup is used to primarily sweeten our detox tea. However, syrup has been shown to help with things like headaches and seasonal allergies so it is a great, multipurpose sweetener!

So how is our warm detox tea sounding? We think is sounds pretty magical. It also sounds quite tasty. It is surely something you are going to love to drink. It will make your body will feel incredible afterwards.

So grab a mug, heat up some water and mix everything together. Feeling great is just around the corner.

Warm Butternut Squash Smoothie – Deliciously Comfy Plant Based Drink

butternut squash smoothie

You already braved leaving those warm covers, hopped across a cold floor and shivered after getting out of the shower. The last thing you want for breakfast is a chilly smoothie! I hear you, so I present my Butternut Squash Smoothie. It is warm and buttery with a little bit of spice and definitely counts as a green smoothie.

I know people don’t normally think of drinking warm smoothies, yet I dare you to give this one a try this winter. It’s so tasty and the perfect way to use seasonal ingredients in a palatable way during the coldest months of the year.

Blending a Butternut Squash Smoothie

This smoothie does take a bit of prep, as the butternut squash needs to be cooked before blending. I recommend cooking the squash ahead of time, then reheating before adding it to the blender or just using the heat generated from your high-powered blender to warm up the smoothie by blending it longer than normal.

  1. Blend the spinach and cashew milk until smooth.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and blend again until smooth. If you have a high-powered blender and are using that to heat up the ingredients, then blend until warm.

To roast the butternut squash: Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut the butternut squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds from each half. Lightly rub the halves with a little oil. Roast cut side down for 20 minutes, turn squash over and roast for 10-20 minutes longer, or until very tender when pierced with the tip of a knife in the thickest part. Let cool slightly before using for this butternut squash smoothie. Store leftovers, wrapped, in the refrigerator.

Easy Ingredient Swaps

Instead of butternut squash, use cooked sweet potato, kabocha squash, or acorn squash. A red apple works great instead of a pear. Swap kale with spinach. Use the spices of your choice. Any milk can be used in place of the cashew milk. Make this butternut squash smoothie your own #idowhatiwant.

Squash Smoothie FAQs

What fruit goes well with butternut squash?

My butternut squash smoothie uses pear. Red apple or mango also go well with butternut squash.

Can you eat butternut squash raw?

Yes, you can. Yet if you want to blend it into a smoothie I recommend baking beforehand. Raw squash is pretty hard and would be difficult to blend up well. Baked squash is soft and easy to blend into a silky smooth beverage.

How do you make a warm smoothie?

You can either use warm ingredients or use a high-powered blender to blend the ingredients until heated. A blender like a Vitamix has a powerful motor that can heat up ingredients into the desired temp.

Butternut Squash Benefits

One cup of this sweet vegetable contains only 4 grams of sugar, making it a great smoothie ingredient. It also contains 6.6 grams of fiber, over 100% the recommended daily value of vitamin A and a decent amount of magnesium, calcium, vitamin C, potassium and phosphorus.

Butternut squash can help lower blood pressure and cholesterol, as well as help prevent asthma through its large amounts of beta carotene. It’s wonderfully low in sugar (yet naturally sweet!) and is a great low sugar option for those with diabetes. Blend up this butternut squash smoothie and enjoy no sugar spike!
