Sometimes your body can use a little detox, especially if you’ve enjoyed too many savory treats. Detox smoothies have become a trendy way to remove toxins from the body and promote a healthier metabolism, but not every recipe and method is the safest.

Looking for a healthy way to detox your body and boost your metabolism in the process? To start, Toby Amidor, MS, RD, author of “Smart Meal Prep for Beginners,” says you need a lot of fruits and veggies. “One of the best ways to reboot your diet is to rethink your fruits and vegetables. Both fruits and vegetables provide fiber, vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients,” he tells NBC.com.

What better way to get a healthy serving of fruits and veggies than by blending them together in a smoothie, right? Here’s a detox smoothie recipe that will help kick-start your metabolism and help you feel better:
