You’re about to experience the most enjoyable Green Detox Smoothie to help heal your body from the inside out. But first, let’s talk. The word “detox” has become a trend in the weight-loss space and for the wrong reasons. My detox protocol is a way to hit the brakes on your diet that slowly becomes filled with coffee, bagels, Taco Bell and pizza, etc and give your body some loving by nourishing it with plant-based whole foods.
According to wellness experts around the world (including me) a gentle, plant-based whole foods reset can heal and renew the body.
Each season, I commit to a 7 to 21 day reset that is aimed at eliminating the foods that cause inflammation and addiction (sugar, caffeine, gluten) and embracing a 100% plant-based whole foods protocol. I sleep better. I lean up. I’m less bloated. And I have waaaaay more energy. As I get older, this protocol is how I’m able to look and feel younger.

Do green smoothies help you lose weight?
Many people use green smoothies to help them lose weight. If you’re interested in doing this, you’ll want to replace a meal or two with a green smoothie. Yet not just any green smoothie— you’ll need to make sure it’s a balanced recipe with healthy fats and protein to fuel your body.
Our Green Smoothie Meal Replacement Guide helps you take any smoothie and transform it into a simple, quick meal.
If you’d like to follow a great program, we have a Thrive: A 7-Day Cleanse. It includes 2 green smoothie meal replacements a day with simple snacks and plant-based dinner.
A daily green smoothie is the #1 healthy habit to set a foundation for a healthier lifestyle. Plants are a key foundation to living a long, healthy life as we know from the Blue Zones around the world. The easiest way to eat more plants it to blend them up and drink them. It’s simple, quick and clean up is easy. #noexcuses
This Green Detox Smoothie is something that you could drink every morning to gain momentum and a fresh new direction when it comes to your health.

- Carrot Cake Bars: A batch of these makes a great snack that you can enjoy all week (plus it curbs the appetite!)
- Cauliflower Buffalo Wings: Trust me… you will love these and crave them weekly.
- Zoodles in a Jar: Is a healthier version of ramen with the comforting tasty flavors.
When should I drink a detox smoothie?
The best time to drink a green smoothie to absorb the most nutrients is on an empty stomach. You also don’t have to worry about food combining which can lead to bloating and an upset stomach.
I like to wake up, have a glass of water, and then my coffee. About an hour later, I’ll enjoy my smoothie (like this green detox smoothie with chia seeds + mct oil). A 16 ounces smoothie will get me through until lunch. If I worked out, I’ll have a snack with nuts (trail mix, raw almonds, granola bar).
Sometimes I have a second green smoothie for lunch (it’s truly the healthiest fast food!). Then a meal from Rawk the Year for dinner…. or sometimes pizza. 🙂
If you’re doing multiple smoothies a day, I recommend having your second one for lunch or an afternoon snack. Don’t forget to boost a smoothie with a meal replacement so you aren’t hungry.
