What is a Detox Smoothie?

Detox smoothies are an easy and delicious way to flush your body of toxins and help lose weight fast. They usually contain fresh vegetables and fruit, and can be made with an ordinary kitchen blender or Vitamix machine.

The typical weight loss smoothie recipe is full of vitamins, antioxidants, fiber, and other healthful nutrients giving your body a detoxifying flush. They also contain large amounts of water, which helps to hydrate your body and boost metabolism. (1)

detox smoothie recipes for weight loss

The idea here is to inundate your system with pure nutrition, to eat as we did as hunters and gathers… well, with a blender I suppose. So nuts, veggies and fruits are all key.

Eating this way will not only reset your system, but your taste buds too! After 3 days on a smoothie diet, you will start to crave healthier food. And if you eat processed or fried food you will feel it, you’ll feel sluggish and bloated. Listen to your body, it will tell you what it wants to eat by how it feels 30-60 minutes after you eat.

If you despise the taste of anything “green” try starting with baby spinach in all your weight loss smoothies, it has virtually no flavor and will naturally boost your metabolism. You won’t even know it’s in your smoothie, all you will taste is the fruit.

As you become accustom to the spinach try swapping half of it for kale or chard, adding more of the new greens and less of the spinach until your taste buds start to enjoy your new food.

A detox weight loss smoothie is basically a nutrition bomb, helping you feel and look better fast!

Benefits of a Detox Smoothies

A detox smoothie has many benefits, below we will explore a few. Keep in mind, before starting a rigorous weight loss cleanse you should ask your doctor.

If you are replacing just one meal per day with a weight loss smoothie recipe, however, you have the green light to start right away (barring any health issues).

How to Make a Detox Smoothie

Detox smoothie recipes are really easy to make, you want a combination of greens (or veggies) fruit, a healthy fat, and ideally a protein boost.

Healthy Detox Smoothie Ingredients

  • Greens – spinach is the most mild of all greens, and you can often find frozen spinach at the grocery store. Kale, chard, romaine, and beet tops are also great greens for smoothies
  • Fruit – to naturally sweeten your smoothie and also boost nutrition, add fruit. Berries, bananas, pineapple, mango and sweet apples will boost sweetness. Citrus and sour apples boost vitamin C (which burns fat) and cherries can help easy pain (great before and after workouts)
  • Protein – Add in a scoop or two of protein powder, collagen powder, or Greek Yogurt. Nut butters also add lots of protein and go great in banana based smoothies.
  • Healthy Fat – Add in a teaspoon of coconut to MCT oil. Avocado is also a great addition for healthy fat, and you can often find frozen avocado chunks in stores.
  • Liquid – almond milk, oat milk, refrigerated coconut milk are all great options for smoothes. But coconut water, aloe water and even regular water are also great to thin out your smoothies.
  • Healthy Add-Ins – flax seed, cocoa powder, matcha, chia seeds, uncooked oatmeal, and even cinnamon (great in apple based smoothies) all boost nutrition in a big way. Try adding 1-2 to your smoothies.

Directions on Making a Smoothie

Once you’ve chosen your smoothie ingredients, it’s a matter of just adding the ingredients to the blender, and blending.

Step 1 – add all ingredients to blender
Step 2 – blend until smooth
Step 3 – enjoy

Special Note: If you want to make the weight loss smoothie cold, you have two options:

1. Freeze the fruit, or buy frozen fruit.
2. Add 1/2 a cup of ice.

Smoothie Toppings:

Who said toppings are just for smoothie bowls? I love to add toppings to my smoothies… I drink down the smoothie and then I have a little treat at the end to eat with a spoon. All covered yummy smoothie and the best way to end my meal.

  • Fresh Berries
  • Flaked Coconut
  • Homemade Granola
  • Honey Drizzle
  • Chopped Nuts

When it comes to fruits and veggies in your smoothies, I recommend you use fresh ingredients. Dut you can also use frozen fruits and vegetables if fresh isn’t available. Just be sure to get organic both in frozen and fresh produce, if you’re cleansing your body you don’t want to be adding in pesticides while you do it!

Making smoothies are very simple. It’s just a matter of blending all the healthy smoothie ingredients together, and serving.

These 10 detox smoothie recipes are all packed with metabolism boosting ingredients, and will work well with the 3 smoothie detox plans above.

Green Detox Smoothie Recipes

You can’t talk about detox smoothies without also discussing green smoothies. The reason green detox smoothie recipes are so popular is because most detox smoothie recipes call for some kind of green leafy vegetable (like spinach, chard or kale), which gives it its distinctive green color.

But don’t let the bright green color fool you, these green smoothie detox recipes taste wonderful and you usually can’t taste the leafy vegetables. And when it comes to fast weight loss, a green smoothie cleanse can’t be beat.

Try one of my green smoothie weight loss recipes below and you’ll understand why they are so popular.

These healthy smoothies for weight loss lean heavy on baby spinach, the most mild of the greens. I promise you won’t be able to taste the spinach in this yummy detox smoothie recipes!

Feel free to add in your favorite vegan protein powder, or if you’re not a vegan, some collagen powder to increase protein They will help you turn this detox smoothie recipe, into one of your favorite protein shake recipes for weight loss!

Kale Detox Smoothie Recipes

Kale is “superfood”, which means it packed with large amounts of vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients. In fact, it’s considered to be one of the most nutritious plants in existence. (2)

Kale doesn’t always taste the best because it can be rather strong for some, but if you combine it with the right ingredients it can be a delicious and healthy addition to any green detox smoothie recipe.

Special Tip: Make sure you use only the leaves and discard the stems, this will remove most of the bitter flavor.

Benefits of a Detox Smoothie Cleanse

A detox smoothie cleanse is a great way to los weight, reset your cravings, and achieve better health.

Depending on your personal health, it may be necessary to consult with a doctor before starting. I can tell you however, my family doctor reviews this diet and loves it so much he recommends it to his other patients! It’s healthy and easy, and full of yummy food!

weight loss cleanse

A detox smoothie cleanse is not a diet where you eat only smoothies, that is not sustainable! It is simply a diet where you swap meals out with weight loss smoothies to boost weight loss.

Detox Cleanse Benefits:

  1. Increased Metabolism – these smoothies naturally increase metabolism, helping your body burn fat faster.
  2. Healthy Digestion – they also help reduce bloat and flush out your system. So you will be more “regular” and shed tummy bloat fast.
  3. Fast Weight Loss – depending on what smoothie detox cleans you do, you can lose between 2-10 pounds in a single week!
  4. Reduces Inflammation – all the wonderful antioxidants in these smoothies help you reduce inflammation and bloat.
  5. Reset of Cravings – my favorite! After a week on a detox cleanse, you won’t crave junk food anymore! So the next time you find yourself craving the unhealthy stuff, start a 1 week detox cleanse to reset your cravings.

A weight loss cleanse is not just a strict “only smoothie diet”,. It also incorporates salads, detox water recipes, even a bit of exercise. But because it heavily leans on help from smoothies to lose weight, you get all these wonderful benefits!

With all these wonderful health benefits, you’ll want to start right away… here are 3 easy plans to try.

How to Start a Smoothie Cleanse

There are three different smoothie cleanse options. All are easy and good for your body, I recommend you choose the plan that calls out to you, the one that seams the easiest. You can always try another one next week or next month once you’ve had a “win”.

When doing these plans, I recommend you choose 1-2 detox smoothies below to work with. This way the cost stays low… If you did a different one each day, that would be a lot of groceries to buy!

10 Day Smoothie Cleanse:

On this (the easiest) smoothie detox plan you simply swap out one meal per day, with a green smoothie. Easy right?!

Special Tip: Choose the meal you most often skip, or are not too hungry for. If you don’t eat breakfast, then that is when you want to add a smoothie.

Quick 3 Day Smoothie Cleanse:

On this quick smoothie cleanse, you have one detox smoothie, one salad, and one healthy meal per day.

Frequently Asked Questions

With this Smoothie Help You Lose Weight?

Yes! These detox smoothies are formulated to boost metabolism and burn fat. For best results pair them with a healthy diet, or try one of my 3 free smoothie detox plans.

Is a smoothie detox good for you?

If done correctly, a smoothie detox is very good for your health, and for weight loss. It is important that you do not replace all your meals with smoothies as this is not healthy or sustainable long term. My 3 healthy smoothie detox plans are best for healthy and lasting results.

When should I drink my detox smoothie?

You can have your detox smoothie any time of the day. But I recommend you have it as a meal replacement for the meal you often skip. So if you don’t usually eat breakfast, that is the perfect time to add in a detox smoothie.

What does a detox smoothie contain?

The best detox smoothies will contain a combination of greens (or veggies) and fruits. There are lots of healthy add ins like coconut oil, flax or chia seeds, and even protein you can add to your smoothies to make them more filling, and packed full of nutrients.

Can I add protein powder my detox smoothie?

Yes! Adding protein powder is a great way to boost nutrition in a detox smoothie. Make sure you get a protein powder that is all-natural (no fake sugars) and ideally plant based. Though whey will work. I like to add vanilla flavored protein powder or unflavored collagen to my smoothies.
