Blending up your daily dose of fruits and vegetables is a great way to nourish the body. If you’ve done my Plant-Based Cleanse, you know eating more plants makes us feel so much better. There’s also a TON of prep when overhauling your entire diet.

This 3-Day Smoothie Diet Plan is the opposite of that. You’ll shop, prep and blend in just minutes.

Easy Flaxseed Smoothie

This is a protein-packed, filling smoothie recipe that's perfect for a quick lunch or post workout pick-me-up. Easily omit the date if you wanna cut back on the natural sugar. Flaxseed is a superfood with fat, protein and fiber; basically a great way to start your day.

Blending Tips for the Smoothie Diet

Your blender will definitely get a workout in blending all 15 smoothies in the 3-Day Smoothie Diet Plan. A standard blender can make these smoothies, yet a high-powered Vitamix blender can make them even better. Here are some recommendations for blending and prepping smoothies.

  • Prep smoothies ahead of time: Use quartz-size freezer-safe bags or containers with airtight lids to put smoothie ingredients into single-serving containers (don’t add liquid). Label each recipe and store in the freezer until ready to blend. When it’s time to have that smoothie, add the liquid to the bag and allow it to defrost for 10-15 minutes on the counter. Then add everything to the blender and enjoy! Meal prep smoothies are a great way to save time each day.
  • Blend in stages for creamy results: If your blender isn’t very powerful, skip the smoothie prep and blend fresh ingredients in stages each day. Start with the liquid base and any ingredients that are hard to blend (for example spinach, frozen berries, nuts). Once they’re blended well, add the remaining ingredients and blend again.
  • Clean your blender like a pro: After you’ve poured your smoothie into a glass, add warm water and a drop of dish soap to the blender container. Put the lid on tight and blender again. It’s like a mini dishwasher. To watch this in action, check out my How to Clean a Blender demo.
  • Add extra leafy greens: Boost fiber and nutrients by adding baby spinach and kale to all five smoothie recipes. The taste won’t change much (if at all) but you’ll feel fuller and reap the benefits of leafy greens.
  • Use top-quality almond milk: You’ll need nine cups of almond milk with the Smoothie Diet Plan. The taste will differ depending on what you use. I suggest learning how to make almond milk to save money or buying one of the best almond milk brands.
  • Swap Greek yogurt for coconut yogurt: If you don’t do any dairy, you can swap the Greek yogurt for a dairy-free alternative like vegan yogurt.
  • Add a protein boost: Each smoothie recipe has 3-15 grams of protein on its own. Depending on your individual needs, you can boost that by adding a scoop of my homemade protein powder, or purchase a clean plant-based protein powder that’s compatible with smoothies.

Common Questions

Is a smoothie diet plan good for losing weight?

Consuming smoothies with fiber, protein and healthy fat can help wake up the metabolism, keep you full and may promote weight loss. Focusing on consuming a variety of whole foods, fruits and vegetables that taste delicious can help kickstart weight loss, yet no one diet is a “miracle.” Use this plan to help start your journey and transition to a holistic clean eating approach.

What is the 21-day smoothie diet plan?

There a a variety of smoothie diet plans out then, including the Smoothie Diet, which is a 21-day program using just smoothies. We don’t recommend consuming only smoothies for 21 days. We encourage you to do a three-day smoothie plan and then transition over to a seven-day healthy meal plan, where you can still enjoy a variety of breakfast smoothies plus plant-based whole-food meals.

Can you lose weight by drinking three smoothies a day?

Drinking only smoothies can help you lose weight if those smoothies are full of plant-based, whole-food ingredients. Using the right ingredients, smoothies can help lower blood sugar levels and aid in weight loss, yet I don’t recommend doing this for more than three days. Your body needs food in a variety of forms, so use this smoothie diet plan to jumpstart healthier eating and as a way to get in a wide variety of plants.

How do I stay full when drinking just smoothies?

Depending on your nutritional needs, this short-term calorie deficit (1,300 calories a day) might be beneficial or you may need to increase your calorie intake to make this work for you. Try adding protein powder and an extra serving of fruit and vegetables to make larger smoothies. You can also swap a smoothie for a heartier plant-based meal like our Hemp Hearts Veggie Bowl and Chickpea Tacos. Still hungry? Try adding healthy snacks like Roasted Chickpeas and Lemon Chia Pudding.

How often can I do a three-day smoothie diet plan?

This plan is meant to be done as needed. If you love how you feel while on the plan, repeat it every few weeks to support your health goals. In between, we encourage you to explore more plant-based recipes to ramp up your digestive system and find some nutrient-dense meals to enjoy.
