6 Smoothie Recipe Ideas For The 14-Day Smoothie Cleanse

Today is my last day of the smoothie cleanse and I am really excited to share my results next week! It was great testing out various fruits and vegetables to see what went well together, and I wanted to share my process of prepping. I will say that I am no doctor, so don’t hold to me any of the advice that I am giving, I am simply sharing my experiences. A smoothie cleanse may not be best for your personal needs, but I listened to my body throughout.

I pretty much always mixed up the smoothies I had during the day, but I had two favorites that really stood out- coconut and greens. I had them almost everyday because they were so tasty!

Coconut Delight: This is a modified version of the “sweet” smoothie Anna shared!
– 1 cup of coconut milk
– 1 tbsp unsweetened coco powder
– 1 tbsb cinnamon
– 1 banana
– 4 pitted dates
– 1 tbsp chia seeds

Other smoothie variations I tried and enjoyed:

Strawnana:
– 1 cup strawberries
– 1 banana
– 1 cup spinach
– 1 tbsp flax seed
– 1.5 cups unsweetened almond milk

Strawnana Kiki:
– 1 cup strawberries
– 1/2 banana
– 2 kiwis
– 1/2 cup spinach
– 1 cup unsweetened almond milk

There were a few other smoothies I tried throughout the two weeks, but these six were in the rotation most often. The easiest way to make these smoothies was to spend 1.5-2 hours prepping and freezing. I would make multiple (6-8) of one smoothie at a time by labeling zip-lock bags, adding directions to the bag of what still needed to be added and putting in all of the ingredient filled bags into the freezer. This way whenever I was ready to make a smoothie or pack my lunch, all I needed to do was grab the bags from the freezer & make the smoothie or fill up a mason jar with almond milk, orange juice or coconut milk and pack my lunch.

Do you have any favorite smoothie recipes?

    YUMMM! These sound sooo good. We are trying to drink a smoothie at least 3-4 mornings a week for breakfast so I’ll need to start switching things up for sure. So proud of you for crushing 14 days of the smoothie cleanse!

    These all sound SO good–and I am going to try to add them into my smoothie routine cause YUM. I love using dates in cooking and in smoothies, because they have such a natural caramel flavor. They are SO underrated!

    Those all sound so good! I am a big protein shake person in the morning, but I might have to mix it up with some fruit smoothies! Can’t wait to see your results!
