The Liver Cleanse Drink

liver cleanse drinkThis Liver Cleanse drink can be used anytime, whether you’re on a fast or not. It works really well for breakfast and should keep you going till noon without feeling hungry.

Generally, “they” say you should only use it for five days in a row, then wait a month or so before using it again. But in my opinion, it’s always about listening to your body. I would recommend to do it only three days in a row, but if you’re OK with it, five days in a row.

The operative ingredient for cleansing the liver is the olive oil. If you’re used to lots of olive oil, you can probably do it for longer than 5 days if you wanted.

Method

Cut citrus in half and extract juice, remove seeds, pour into blender. Peel banana, place 3/4 in blender. Peel ginger, place in blender. Measure out olive oil and pour in blender. Blend.
