Detox Strawberry Lemonade Smoothie

“[T]his smoothie only relies on the natural sweetness of strawberries plus a few dates (to add more sweetness, if needed). The lemon helps the body naturally cleanse, while the strawberries provide well over the daily recommended intake of vitamin C, which has been shown to help burn fat. And not only that, the added spinach helps regulate your digestive system, and you won’t even taste it!”
