Cleanse & Detox Smoothie: Dairy, Sugar & Gluten Free

 

Whether you’re feeling under the weather, feeling bloated from eating too many carbs or just simply feeling like you’ve over done it, maybe like after Thanksgiving, you may be in need of a cleansing detox smoothie to get yourself feeling back to normal. Green veggies are perfect for cleaning out toxins in your body. Eating them in the morning is not usually how you would start the day but making them into a smoothie and you’ve got a perfect solution to eat those greens!

Starting your day with one of these green babies is surely going to make your body happy. How do I know this? Because I’m no stranger to the overeating or overcarb-ing which cause me to feel horrible! I start fresh in the morning with this smoothie and I’m feeling much better knowing I took care of myself.

To be honest I was a green smoothie HATER, I really was! But I have turned over a new leaf, pun intended! :) You can too, it’s good for you!

Choose whatever apples you have on hand, use sweetener or leave it out as the apples will sweeten your smoothie. However you adjust this recipe don’t remove the important stuff, like all the veggies!

The cucumber and celery make this super refreshing, I promise!  :)

  1. When you mention flax seed, is it ground or whole? I heard (I’m new at this way of eating) that whole flax doesn’t digest and a person doesn’t get all the goodness unless the seed is cracked open

    • I mean groung flaxseed, you can buy it whole and grind it yourself or buy it already ground and store in the fridge.

  2. I made this for breakfast. You are right…it was refreshing! :)

  3. Why do you use the liquid stevia? Not the granular?

    • I prefer it as it doesn’t even need to be stirred like the powder and it is less processed than any other stevia.

  4. Will you be posting the detox plan you were talking about on Facebook soon?

  5. If you want to make it even thicker you add a little bit of silken tofu. Gives it an amazing texture!

  6. How many ounces is one serving?

  7. Having one right now. It’s really good!

  8. picking up stuff to-marrow to start the cleansing .. it should be pretty good there is nothing it in I don’t like that I can see..I try to eat healthy but been in a stump..weight not going any where so thought I could try this to give it a kick…hope this will work for me.. thank you ..:0)

  9. Have you ever tried juicing with just these veggies and the apple or do you just use this recipe for a smoothie? Thank you.

  10. Has anyone nursing ever tried this? I am going to call my midwife/doc to see if its ok. I dont see why it wouldnt be.

  11. I’m not sure why but this blog is loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end? I’ll check
    back later on and see if the problem still exists.

  12. I am allergic to almonds. Any suggestions as to what to use instead of the almond milk?
