A new year has finally arrived, and if you’re like most people, you want to get rid of last year’s excess weight gain.

It makes no difference what the reason you want to lose the weight is – the only thing that matters is losing it. Resveralife has looked into a few healthy weight loss options that will not only help you lose weight, but detoxify your body as well! This article focuses on fabulous smoothies which will detoxify your body, and help you jump start your new year the right way with healthy weight loss.
Below, you will find a few of our favorite smoothie detox combos – any or all of these can be implemented into your daily diet. They would be great for breakfast or lunch, and will help you to feel healthy and good about your body.
Berry Good Morning
1 C Fresh or Frozen Raspberries ( Could use Strawberries instead)
3/4 C Skim, Coconut, or Almond Milk
1 1/2 TBSP honey OR Agave Nectar
2 TSP fresh ginger, finely grated
1 tsp flax, ground fine
1 TBSP Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
Combine all of the above ingredients into a blender and add ½ C of ice if not using frozen berries. Puree until smooth. Drink up this refreshing goodness within 10 minutes for freshness.
The ginger in this amazing flavorful concoction help the metabolism to be stimulated, while the enzymes from the berries are purely detoxifying and are filled with anti-oxidants, which are special little cancer fighters in their own regard. Drink to your health’s delight!

1¼ C Frozen mango or Papaya
2 stalks of celery, diced
