These 13 Green Smoothie Cleanse Recipes Will Make You Feel Better

Does your body need a nutrition reset?

Try adding green smoothies to your diet.

Whether you suffer from digestive problems, lethargy, or other health-related issues, getting your nutrition back on track is the first step to feeling better.

Green smoothies are a simple and easy way to boost the amount of revitalizing vitamins and antioxidants you’re getting on a daily basis.

If you’ve been eating a diet high in saturated fats, processed carbs, or refined sugars, replacing some of your meals with green smoothies can help improve your digestion, regulate blood sugar levels, and let your body feel “cleansed.”

One of the great things about green smoothies is that they are a convenient way to get more greens into your diet.

Seriously: It’s hard to eat a pile of greens for breakfast. That’s why I love sneaking them into a smoothie.

Powerful Green Smoothie Cleanse Recipes

Why choose healthy smoothies that have no (or very little) fruit?

Most fruits have a high acid and sugar content, which can cause a pH imbalance in your body. Eating more alkalizing foods like leafy greens creates a more balanced pH.

You will notice that the only fruits in these green smoothie cleanse recipes are lemons and limes in these recipes. Even though lemons and limes are technically fruit, they’re considered alkalizing, which helps to balance your body’s pH levels.

You’ll also get tons of fiber, aiding in digestion and stabilizing blood sugar levels.
