Green Detox Smoothie

Oh my goodness, it feels so good to be home.

My time in Europe these past few weeks was such a gift, and filled to the brim with so many wonderful memories with friends.  But between the six-course meals each night on the Mediterranean cruise, paella in Spain, and pub food galore with friends all over England, I think it’s safe to say that I probably ate more carbs (and specifically, potatoes!) in the past month than ever before!

So upon returning home, my friend Sarah and I thought it would be fun to try going “raw” for a week.  Nothing cooked, no caffeine, no alcohol — just straight raw ingredients, which mostly includes fresh produce and nuts.  I will post a summary of how it went at the end of this week, and then I’m also planning to share some of the recipes next week.

However, the first “detox” smoothie that I made yesterday was too good not to share right away!  I love green smoothies, but this one may be one of my new favorites.  It is sweet and simple, but packed with all sorts of healthy goodness that I loved.  No arm-twisting necessary to enjoy this green smoothie for a meal!

  29. This recipe is for just one person?  At what time do you take it?  Breakfast,  lunch or at night?  Does it replace one meal?  How many days do you take it to show results? Thanks for the answers. 

    • Hi Maria, this recipe makes about 4-5 cups, so about two good-sized servings. It’s not really meant to be a meal replacer — we like it for breakfast some mornings (or with breakfast, because it doesn’t have much protein), or as a healthy snack. We hope you enjoy!

  34. I make this smoothie all the time, tho I add a cup of spinach and about 3 celery sticks;  whole. It’s perfect for breakfast; and yes a meal replacement. 1tbs of Chai seeds equals 1 egg so the equivalent to what you’d eat for breakfast measures out,  with tons of minerals and vitamins to boot! My son loves it, a favorite in this house!  

    • Thanks for sharing Amanda — we’re so glad you and your son enjoy it! :)

  37. Is it ok to sieve the smoothie after blending.. kindly advice. Thanx for the receipt.

    • Sure! Its not necessary, but you can do that if you like — we hope you enjoy!

  38. This was insanely good! Best smoothie I have probably ever made. I’m not normally a huge fan of ginger but it was tasty in this.
