Adding one of these smoothie recipes to your diet every day could be one of the smartest things you do for your health.
If you are trying to improve your health, prevent disease or lose weight, the best thing you can do is drink smoothies.
It is so much easier to drink your fruits and veggies rather than eat them. You can take your smoothie on the go with you which makes it a very attractive breakfast for our hectic modern lives.
We all know of the benefits of eating more fruit and veg in terms for weight loss and disease prevention.

Flavonoids are just one of the many phytonutrients in fruit and veg which is responsible for giving us an improved quality of life.
One study involving 9959 men and women in Finland showed the more flavonoids they ate, the less they got cancer. The people who ate the highest amounts of flavonoids reduced the risk of lung cancer by 50%.
And if you’re worried about ingesting too much sugar from fruit you don’t need to be. Studies have also shown that the body reacts in a very positive way to fruit in terms of blood sugar levels, compared to the refined sugar that is added to most processed foods.
Do smoothies really help us lose weight?
Yes! Studies have also shown, the more fruit you eat, the more weight you lose.
So there’s all the proof you need that smoothies need to play a big part of your diet. I personally have been drinking 2 smoothies per day for the last 10 years. My energy is sky high and my weight is exactly where I want it to bed.
Now, dig out that blender and get making some smoothies! Here are my favorite smoothie recipes, because they are fast and delicious.

You won't go hungry on this diet ... And better yet - it actually requires minimal time in the kitchen.
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
