These smoothie superfoods are add-in smoothie ingredients that will transform your health, help you get your energy back and lose weight.
After experimenting with different daily smoothie recipes for over 10 years now, I can tell you something interesting that I’ve noticed.
Superfoods do make a difference.
When I first started my blog, I really thought you could get great health just from eating clean healthy food and not using any supplements.

And in an ideal world, that is true.
But none of us live in an ideal world. We live in a world where we have inherited poor genes from our ancestors, we’ve eaten a diet full of processed chemicals most of our lives and we are bombarded by environmental toxins on a second by second basis.
Coupled with the fact that we’re all stressed out, rushed off our feet, emotionally drained and constantly dealing with the ups and downs of living this life.
No wonder, we need a little extra support.
I love to experiment with my smoothies and add superfoods that have constantly worked for me over the years.
Here are all my favorite smoothie superfoods that I have really noticed a difference after using and I keep consistently using.
Also, please bear in mind that some of these superfoods don’t taste very nice. So here’s what I do when trying a new superfood.
I add the powder to a glass and stir in a tiny bit of water and drink it down in one go.
If it tastes awful, I continue to consume it in this way every morning. But if it tastes bearable, I add it to my smoothie.
I wouldn’t want you ruining your delicious smoothie because you added in some powerful tasting superfood to it.

Green Thickies new 7 Day Detox will help you drop a dress size, improve your skin, your energy will soar and you are going to be so in control and proud of yourself.
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
