This liver cleansing lemon smoothie will be a much needed drink over the Christmas and New Year’s period. We use the whole lemon because then you don’t lose any of the good nutrients from the lemon rind like the fibre and citrus bio-flavonoids. This smoothie is great for your liver detoxification pathway and a yummy drink to have first thing in the morning or afternoon on a hot sunny day!
