On Monday, we invited you to Spring Clean your body with a fantastic weekend juice detox (and if you didn’t get the invite, there’s still time to follow the two day programme).

To help you keep the detox going, try Christine’s Berry Cream Blitz recipe. This satisfying juice keeps hunger pangs at bay. Rich in protein and essential fats, it provides a super-dose of nutrients to support your metabolism. The pectin in the berries helps stimulate digestion, while flaxseed oil boosts your intake of essential fats to aid weight loss.

1 tsp tahini
1 tsp flaxseed oil
125ml/4fl oz/ ½ cup water
