Starting off my cleanse....with ice cream

Yes, I cleanse my body with dessert. Whats wrong with that? Ok, so its more of a sorbet but its still sweet and delicious! Fruit just made it that much better and easier to get away with.

So, when I woke up I had some lemon juice in water and a bit of Pure Synergy. Pure Synergy is my favorite green superfood powder and is the most complete one i've been able to find. All of the enzymes and food in it are so incredibly good for you and nutritious to the highest extent! So of course I needed to add some good stuff into my cleanse to help replace all of the bad stuff.

By the power of the green gods of cleansing and healthiness, I now grant you as a super vegan! MWAHAHAHAHA

Alright, so then later after some pure synergy for breakfast and a bland salad for lunch, now off to the good part. I made a sorbet out of some of the most cleansing fruits I had with me! Papaya, grapefruit, and lots of berries. Time to get this part started!

Cleanser Sorbet

1 papaya
1 grapefruit
1 avocado
2 c. mixed berries
1 tbsp. honey
1 tbsp. coconut oil
1/2 c. shredded coconut (optional)

-De-seed, de-pit, and de-skin the papaya, grapefruit, and avocado and through them into the blender.

-Add in the rest of your ingredients (except the shredded coconut if using) and blend everything until its nice and smooth but not watery. Add another avocado or a banana if that helps.

- Pour everything into a bowl and mix in your coconut. Then freeze everything for 2-4 hours or until it resembles icey ice cream or a sorbet.


Not the prettiest sorbet in the world, but it was still delicious! Papaya contains a unique enzyme called papain which is renowned for its ability to cleanse your skin and prevent cancer. I threw in the grapefruit due to the acidity in it which burns away at mucus build up and helps cleanse your digestive system.

Coconut, i could go on all day about. Though sweet, it contains acids that are not absorbed by the stomach and help to move things along. Coconut oil is so clean that it is the only oil that doesn't need to be filtered through your pancreas. Its also one of the only oils that don't clog your pores when you sweat it out. My favorite part of it, though, is its strong effect on the thyroid which strengthens it increases your metabolism to clean everything out.

The avocado contains essential fats, but i don't know if its necessary cleansing. I added it to make everything more ice-creamy. But honey, on the other hand, wasn't only added for taste. It contains more enzymes and antioxidants than any other food tested! So of course, it was worth adding.

On a different note, wow. Second day of October, and the temperature drops! Its almost magical!

What do you think is the most magical thing about fall?
