Have you ever tried a green smoothie with peppers? I’m going to have to put it next on my list to try. This smoothie is so nutritious and looks gorgeous. Claire is guest posting for Green Thickies today. Check out her extensive collection of vegan recipes with beautiful photography. Her photos definitely make vegan food look incredibly tempting.
Hi everyone! I’m Claire from Almost Skinny Vegan Food. You may have seen me contributing to Healthy Vegan Fridays, but if not it’s very nice to meet you. After one hell of a case of Monday-itus imagine my delight when I received a friendly email from Katherine offering me the chance to do a guest post for her while she was delivering a little love bundle into the world.
I’ve been drooling over the wonderful world of green thickies for yonks now but it’s only recently I managed to snag myself a second hand vitamix and join in the fun! I did try them in my conventional blender but… I ended up chewing them and did a wonderful shrek impression with the amount that remained in my teeth! I ended up juicing my greens, freezing them into ice blocks and adding them to my smoothies (or just juicing) so if you’re lacking a high powered blender you can always give that a go. So, where did I start? with greens of course! then I worked out how I wanted to sweeten it, whether I wanted it to be creamy or not. I’m not sure I have a fave green smoothie yet but this one is definitely new and interesting. I decided to share a refreshing citrus and capsicum green smoothie with you today.

Citrus and Capsicum Green Smoothie
Citrus and Capsicum Green Smoothie
- 2 small cucumbers (or 1 large)
- 1 medium cos lettuce (or any lettuce you like)
- 2 cups red/orange/yellow baby capsicums (bell peppers)
- 3 oranges (Alternatively if you’re a grapefruit fan: 1 large ruby grapefruit & 1 orange) *Any citrus would work well here with the exception of lemon
- Feel free to adjust sweetness to your liking with stevia or a couple of dried dates
- Wash all fruit and veggies well
- Peel citrus fruit and take the stems off capsicums (I leave the seeds in)
- Add to high powered blender
- Blend until smooth
Hope you give this delicious nutrient packed drink a go! Love and Smiles,

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
