lemon-lime detox smoothie

i have lots of lemons and limes left over from the holidays. i tend to overestimate on food in a big way during the holidays. our fruit drawer is filled with lots of citrus goodness that i best be using up or it will go to waste. and since it is the new year and all i thought i would kill two birds with one stone and make a healthy smoothie while using up the lemons and limes. lemons and limes rank high in the detox department. apparently they contain a large quantity of water which helps flush the toxins out of your body. anything to help rid my body of those nasty toxins, right? plus, this smoothie really does taste good (my daughter, rory even had a glass). here's the recipe:
