Now that Holidays are over it’s time to get back to healthy routine. For me, this means desserts only on weekends and return to my good old healthy mindful eating. Thank God because I don’t know how long I would endure all this Holiday overeating madness. Parties, guests, drinking, food… OMG! Honestly, I’m fed up with all this. If someone even mentions me cookies right now, I’m gonna scream. But can you believe, my husband, he STILL happily snacks on Honey Cinnamon Cookies? I mean c’mon!!!

My body cries for some lighter meals, like Tomato Soup or Pumpkin Pear Salad.

But before I return to my usual eating routine, it’s time to cleanse and detox my body. I really FEEL like I need one good cleanse. And there’s no better way to help my body get rid of accumulated toxins (and some few extra pounds) rather than with this super tasty, creamy, refreshing Grapefruit Ginger Smoothie that is bursting with citrus flavor and superfoods.

This Grapefruit Ginger Smoothie is so light to taste but packed with some great flavors – tangy, juicy grapefruit, sweet, mild carrot and zesty ginger. The feeling is just amazing. You just can’t take one sip and stop. It’s refreshing but so smooth and creamy. I devoured a glass at once. Which is quite unusual for me. I usually like to slowly sip my smoothies, so it sometimes takes me an hour to drink it all. And right after I had a glass of this Grapefruit Ginger Smoothie, I felt my body rejuvenate. I was instantly overwhelmed with some pleasant feeling.

Grapefruit is one great superfruit. It’s high in fiber and low in calories. It helps you with constipation and indigestion, boosts your metabolism and that’s why they are great for weight loss. Grapefruit literally melts the pounds away. Also, grapefruits are loaded with vitamin C and contains bioflavonoids and other plant chemicals that protect our bodies against serious diseases. I really love it, and when in a season I eat it like every day.

In addition to almighty powerful grapefruit (I used pink one), for whipping this smoothie, I also used vitamin B-powered carrot and ginger. All FRESH ingredients. Grapefruit and ginger pair so good together. Just yum!

To sweeten Grapefruit Ginger Smoothie I used Modjul dates that gave the smoothie not only natural sweetness but also a nice caramel flavor. Also, I added some probiotic yogurt that will help my gut recover from Holiday overeating. For the vegan version, you can use coconut yogurt or some plant-based milk.

Since I feel really low on energy lately, I decided to throw in smoothie some maca powder. Maca is natural energy and health booster. It’s also very rich in nutrients.

The texture of this smoothie is amazing. Somewhere between fruit juice and a creamy traditional smoothie. Super light and so refreshing. It’s packed with vitamins, antioxidants, real immune and energy booster. This delicious drink will ward off colds, flu and melt your pounds away. Perfect!
