Looking for a way to scale back on the sweets? This Detox Green Smoothie is just what you need!
Now that the holidays are over, it’s time to get back on track and detox just a bit. While I loved all the sugar and spice and everything nice over the past couple of months, my body is begging me to slow down a bit. One of the best ways to make that transition? This delicious Detox Green Smoothie.
I can’t quite explain what it is, but there’s just something refreshing about drinking a homemade smoothie. It’s no secret that I love cooking and creating in my kitchen, but when I make a smoothie, I get so proud of myself!
Maybe it’s the fact that I can add literally anything that I want to it…or maybe it’s that I know that I’m feeding and fueling my body with ease. Whatever the reason, I know that I love smoothies and the way that they make me feel.
If you’re like me and looking for a way to “holiday detox” a bit, this Detox Green Smoothie may be what you need as well! It’s simple, delicious and gives you that much-needed kick of healthy to jumpstart your day!
DETOX GREEN SMOOTHIE INGREDIENTS
● APPLE CIDER VINEGAR: 1 Tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. Make sure you use the apple cider vinegar with the mother in it because that’s the secret to the detox. Here is the apple cider vinegar I use.
● LIME JUICE: 1 Tablespoon of lime juice.
● HONEY: 1 Tablespoon of honey.
● YOGURT: 1 cup of vanilla greek yogurt.
● AVOCADO: 1 avocado.
● SPINACH: 2 cups of fresh spinach.
● PEAR: 1 pear.
● GREEN GRAPES: About 15 green grapes.
● ICE CUBES: 1/2 cup of ice cubes.
HOW TO MAKE A DETOX SMOOTHIE
To make this Detox Green Smoothie, simply:
STEP 1: Combine all ingredients in the blender in the order listed.
STEP 2: Blend until smooth.
BEST BLENDER FOR MAKING SMOOTHIES: I make smoothies almost every day and I’ve gone through my share of blenders. Here is the blender I use every day, it’s fast and makes the best smoothies. I also liked that it comes with the single serve option because sometimes blending is a hassle because I don’t feel like cleaning the pitcher. But with the single serve, it is a lot less hassle to clean, plus there isn’t anything wasted because I can make just the right amount. And it has no problems blending ice!
ADD PROTEIN TO KEEP YOU FULL: I often make this smoothie in the morning, especially when I don’t have time to make breakfast, I add my protein powder to the smoothie. I love that I can’t taste the protein powder (I hate the taste of protein powder) in this smoothie but I know it’s there because it keeps me full until lunchtime.
FILL UP YOUR BLENDER: You always want to layer your ingredients softest to hardest (frozen). First, add the apple cider vinegar, lime juice, honey, and yogurt. Then, add the avocado, spinach, pears, and grapes. Lastly, add the ice cubes.
MAKE IT SWEETER: If you like your smoothies to be on the sweeter side rather then on the veggie, healthy tasting side, I would recommend adding a tablespoon or two of honey..either way, I love adding honey because honey helps promote healthy, glowing skin and hair.
EXTRA SMOOTHIE LEFTOVER? If you have some leftover smoothie, you can put it in the fridge for later. Once you’re ready to drink it, I like to add a little extra yogurt to the smoothie to thicken it up again.
