This smoothie is adapted from the recipe I use in The Healing Powers of Vinegar, Revised and Updated. (Currently, the ebook format is on sale for 1.99 at amazon, kobo, and barnesandnoble.)
This is one of dozens of recipes you'll find in a popular book with new health research, new home cures, and new recipes.
Also, there are more quickie diets for you to choose from that'll help you to detox or use as a jump-start plan to lose some unwanted pounds.
