Super Green Detox Drink

Super Green Detox Drink

This Super Green Detox Drink is the perfect beverage to whip up after a night of indulging. From the infinite spectrum of green juices to green smoothies, green-based drinks are certainly trending these days, and for good reason! These nutrient-rich drinks nourish and detoxify your system, and help you feel great. This recipe in particular calls for powerful superfoods like kale, spinach, and cilantro, ingredients that offer countless health benefits your body will thank you for. And if the thought of sipping on liquefied veggies makes you cringe, don’t worry! We’ve added an apple to the recipe for a hint of sweetness that cranks up the flavor.

    I was wondering if there was anything else that you could add in place of the celery. I cannot have celery or green peppers, but would like to try this detox. Thank you for your time!

      Jill, Any green veggie will work. I'd use zucchini.

    Is this a detox drink-can you have it in place of a meal and eat the others? how many calories are in it? I was thinking it was a very healthy "green" smoothie but now I"m thinking it is only for detox and not eating anything else?

      It doesn't need to be just for detox, though it has those properties. You can have it as you would a regular smoothie whenever you want to.

    Hello! I am new to working out and I am about to start a new abs workout and I want to do this detox along with the workout. This may be a "slow" question but like I said I am a beginner. Do I drink this before or after my daily workout??

    Reply
    • Skinny Ms.  June 3, 2013

      Brittany, Either is fine but I would probably drink before if you’re doing weight training. If you’re doing cardio, after is best.

    I have had this smoothie now two days in a row. Taste is less than appealing as well as the smell from the parsley but it is drinkable. Makes my stomach nauseous. I am curious how many days in a row or just whenever, how much ever one wants. Does anyone know?

      I drink it everyday! I love it and when I am out of town my body craves it. I guess it would be an individual thing though.

    I really like this smoothie but the recipe makes so much! Almost a full blender, for me. Is that right? If so, can I drink it throughout the day or is it best to finish it during breakfast time?

    Reply
    • Skinny Ms.  December 21, 2015

      Lauren, Yes, this smoothie comes out huge but is very low calorie for the amount. You can either save it for later in the fridge (only recommended for 12 hrs at the most) or freeze it for another day. One idea is to freeze it in ice cube trays, then put it in whatever bottle/glass you will drink it from. Shake or stir after an hour at room temperature and it should be thawed. You can also put the frozen smoothie cubes in the blender to puree it into a slushy-like consistency.

      I'm not sure. Just follow the directions and drink as much as you want and save the rest for later in the day.

    I just tried the smoothie. I thought it was going to taste bad. But it tastes pretty good.
    I did not put the parsley in I was out of it.
    But I did put everything else in it.

  21. Rana  February 10, 2014

    Hello… I have tried the smoothie and it was not bad at all. I drink 2 times a day, 1st time early morning after a glass of water and the 2nd time early afternoon before lunch. Do you think it will help me loose weight while having light meals? Or do I have to follow the 3 or more days green juice detox diet? Thank you!

    Reply
    • SkinnyMs  February 10, 2014

      Rana, I would recommend drinking the super detox green smoothie once a day in addition to your light meals. The 3 day cleanse & detox is a kick start to eating healthy, not a diet. :)

    DO you peel the cucumber?

    Reply
    • SkinnyMs  March 18, 2014

      If it's organic or has a thin skin such as the hothouse variety, then you needn't peel it. It also depends on the strength of your blender. A high powered blender can puree the skin, while many blenders cannot. There are many nutrients in the skin, but If it has a waxy skin, I would definitely peel it first.

    Ok so I posted a comment and it was deleted. Maybe because I used a brand name! Trying again. Starting the 3 day cleanse and detox tomorrow. I am using a high powered blender and I am wondering if I use the whole lemon. I saw the comment to remove the seeds but what about the peel? Of do I just use the pulp?

    Reply
    • SkinnyMs  April 9, 2014

      If you have a high powered blender such as the Vitamix you should be able to blend the whole lemon including seeds. If the peel is waxy, you should remove it. If it is an organic lemon, you should definitely clean it and use the peel. Chop the lemon into chunks to make it easier to blend. There are a lot of phytonutrients in the peel, but a lot of nutritional value comes from the white pith under the peel, including a high amount of vitamin C.

      Jen, Eaten together in a recipe, the points are generally calculated. See this article: http://ronisweigh.com/2011/02/weight-watchers-poi…. Please check in with your WW counselor to get her thoughts and opinions.

    • SkinnyMs  September 15, 2014

      Mary Young, It's good first thing in the morning, as a snack or after a workout. Also, it might give you energy in the afternoon- instead of reaching for caffeine- when many of us tend to have our 3:00 slump.

      Terri, You can, however I would not recommend it. This detox drink tends to thicken up fairly quickly because of all
      the fibrous ingredients.
