    Today was Day 1 of my 28-Day Detox. I made the Antioxidant Smoothie for my breakfast. It had a great taste! I was NOT a fan of the fruit seeds, which seems to happen in all fruit smoothies, but maybe a cheesecloth or coffee filter will help remove the seeds for a better consistancy. Since this was my first meal, the first few sips were tart, but not bad. Altogether, it had a great taste. If I can figure out how to remove the seeds, I will have a winner!

    Great and healthy breakfast. I use greek yogurt and some water or milk to desired thickness. Pomegranite juice is available at Costco. Large bottle and it lasts forever in fridge.

    This smoothie is delicious and so simple to make. I freeze them and eat them with a spoon.

    I didn't get Pomegranate Juice from my store. I couldn't find it. Is it ok to drink coconut milk in Week one?

    Lol - even in CA this smoothie seems wrong - way better for a hot, summer day.

    I've been adding Hemp Powder to smoothies lately. I won't comment on the color it turns things, but it adds so much protein and has a bit of sweetness to it. Thanks for the avocado tip!

    Add 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt....delicious!

    I've been making a small portion of steel cut oatmeal and adding fresh fruit and a little coconut - it's still within the guidelines and warmer than a smoothie!

    Does anyone have any ideas on what to eat for breakfast besides a cold smoothie on a cold winter's day??

    I added 1/4 avocado - doesn't affect taste, just makes it much smoother - nice on a cold day.
