Liver cleansing smoothie

I created this recipe when I stopped taking the pill.

One of the things you are recommended to do when helping your body recover from the pill is to cleanse your liver. This  is because your liver is the detox organ for the body. It filters your blood and removes any non-beneficial substances such as pollutants, toxins and excess oestreogens. It has its work cut out for it when you stop taking the pill because it has to clear out all the excess hormones.
