Detox Smoothies

Wednesday, May 18, 2016

A month or so ago, my mom sent me some detox smoothie recipes she found and claims she's been losing a few inches after drinking them. She is usually able to drink both of them (one in the morning and one in the afternoon) - I haven't been able to drink the afternoon one. I personally don't really see/feel any difference from the smoothies but I've been enjoying the blueberry smoothie every morning on my way to work :)

Sorry for the quick pictures, I snapped them before rushing out the door for work.

Blueberry Detox Smoothie
Blend together:
- 1/2 cup apple juice
- 3/4 cup blueberries (I use frozen ones)
- 1/4 cup plain yogurt (I use vanilla Greek yogurt)
- 1/4 cup kale
- 2 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tbsp flax oil (My mom uses coconut oil and I don't use any - maybe that's why I'm not losing anything ;))

Peanut Butter Detox Shake
Blend together:
- 1 cup milk
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 tbsp peanut butter
- 1/4 cup oats
- 2 tbsp plain yogurt
- 5 ice cubes

I tried the peanut butter shake once and the recipe made an entire cup full which was too much for me and left me feeling sick all night. Whenever I try it again, I'll cut the recipe in half.

Now, I'm no doctor or nutritionist, my mom says it works for her, it hasn't worked for me but worst case, it's a good and healthy smoothie!

Linking up with Jessi.


  1. Hmmm, I might have to try these once this baby is here to lose some of this baby weight!!

  2. I'll definitely try this one - it sounds delicious! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. Oh they both sound so very good.

  4. Eeeeek!! Thank you for sharing. I'm so excited to try this! I will be adding these ingredients to my next grocery list!

  5. You literally just put the icing on the cake for me smoothie wise! Hubby and I were talking about getting back into this!

  6. I've been having a PB/banana smoothie almost every day and they are amazing! I substitute vanilla whey protein for the oats and yogurt though - I'm going to try it your way next time because yum!!

  7. Derek's in charge of our smoothies and I love the idea of the PB one - definitely going to share that with him!
