GET THAT HEALTHY GLOW AND RID YOUR BODY OF THOSE HARMFUL TOXINS WITH THESE DELICIOUS AND DETOXIFYING GREEN DRINKS

How familiar are you with green drinks and by that, I mean detoxifying green drinks? Is that you scrunching your face? Is your brain beginning to spin that unsweetened taste in your mouth?

You do realise that there are so many great benefits to these green drinks such as giving clearer skin, increased energy, less stress, deeper sleep, improved circulation and even better digestion, right? This is due to the fact that these greens go easy on your digestive system.

The easier it is for your body to not only digest food but also get the much needed nutrients from them, the more energised and motivated your body is to kick those harmful toxins out because it isn’t exhausting this energy on digestion.

For this reason, the body has time to focus on other pressing issues like say, attending to the cause of that blemished skin and kicking these toxins out of your system.

Before giving you a number of these green drinks that your body would love, get that scrunchy look off your face because these drinks are not as unsweetened as you imagine but on the contrary, very delicious and you would enjoy them.

1. STOMACH CLEANSER GREEN SMOOTHIE

This is one strong smoothie that is a really strong detox. If you aren’t used to detox drinks, this wouldn’t be a good one to begin with. Mint is a powerful blood detoxifier and reduces bloating. Lemon detoxes the blood as well, but it also flushes toxins from the liver and kidneys and aids in digestion. The taste of refreshing mint pairs nicely with the lemon in this smoothie, creating a light and delicious green-colored drink.

Ingredients:
3 cups water
Juice of 1 lemon
1 inch piece of ginger
4 inch piece of cucumber
¼ cup mint
1-2 handfuls ice

Directions: Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

 

2. PINEAPPLE GINGER GREEN DETOX SMOOTHIE

Pineapple is very sweet, right? Imagine how sweet and delicious the frozen pineapple in this smooth would make this green smoothie. It doesn’t just make this list because it is delicious but most importantly because it is a great detoxifier. It also improves digestion, is anti-inflammatory, and increases circulation. The baby spinach augments immunity, is packed with antioxidants, vitamins, live enzymes, and is also anti-inflammatory. Fresh ginger gives this smoothie that zing zest with the added benefits of reduced inflammation, boosting metabolism and immunity, and blood cleansing.

Ingredients:
3 cups frozen diced pineapple
3 cups fresh baby spinach
1 cup frozen diced banana
1 celery rib (optional)
1 Tbsp. grated fresh ginger (start with less and add more if desired)
1 Tbsp. chia seeds
juice from half a lime

Directions: Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

3. STRAWBERRY DETOX GREEN MONSTER SMOOTHIE

This green smoothie is extra healthy because it contains some amazing detoxifying compounds. Strawberries are packed with vitamin c, which will help you detox and clear your skin. Vitamin c has actually been shown to be anti-aging too! So not only will this drink clear your skin, but it will also help protect it for later. Cucumbers also flush toxins from your body and clear your skin.

Ingredients:
3/4 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 cup cucumber, peeled and sliced
1 large frozen banana, broken into pieces
1 1/2 cup vanilla almond milk (or alternate milk)
1 1/2 cups kale, loosely packed, stems removed (you can also use spinach)
Large handful of spinach

Directions: Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

 

7. BASIC KALE DETOX JUICE

This green juice trumps out a smoothie everytime. The reason is because the nutrients are so condensed with no fiber, making it very easy to digest and as earlier mentioned, gives your body time and energy to focus on kicking toxins out of your body, keeping you feeling great inside and out with great skin and healthy glow.

Ingredients:
5 stalks of Kale or Spinach
3 Apples
1 Lemon
1 Cucumber

Directions: Juice the ingredients in a juicer. Strain if desired. Makes 16 ounces of juice.
