Detox Smoothie

detox smoothie recipe with step by step picture tutorial

Yep, that’s a healthy green smoothie?

I realize things like these are rather scarce over here, at this little place of mine.

But before you start wondering whether I’ve overcome a head injury recently, let me explain what’s going on…

 

I made this smoothie yesterday. That allowed me to tick off my first New Year’s resolution – to bring a little more health into my life.

Then I did three (3) sit-ups.

I was feeling amazing.

A new person was born.

 

Today I made a batch of cookies and had two glasses of wine.

So everything is back to normal.

The new person has grown up rather quickly, it seems.

 

Still I wonder what made me feel better, the alkalizing smoothie or the lovely wine.

Need to think it all through.

  1. The idea that this “alkalizes” your “system” demonstrates a humorous ignorance of biology and its chemical underpinnings – but if you enjoy it and the placebo effect inspires you to get some exercise, then rock on.

  3. Dayton, Lemon does alkalize the body, it may sound backward but its true, google it. I don’t understand why you have to be so rude, there is no reason to call someone ignorant. Especially since you don’t have the facts straight.

    • Yeah, detox – somewhat… Cleanses nothing really, but it’s better than what a lot of people shove in their stomach for breakfast. Just google a cleansing detox smoothie! You’ll get lots of ideas, & you can always tweak it as you please. Just remember what your trying to do… cleanse – detox or smoothie…. just sayin’ not a lot of people can do a real cleanse, cause it’s 3 per day for a couple of days, w/ only water, tea – plain – no sugar or milk, & a chicken broth. Now that’s a cleanse.

  4. I’m going to try this smoothie first thing in the morning. Headed for the grocery store once my son gets out of school. Will you be posting any more smoothie recipes? I would like to try a recipe with sweet potato, or watermelon/honey dew flavors.

  5. Petra, I love your blog. I have made the garlic knots, and now the detox smoothie. I made some improvements to it – added parsley, mint, fresh pineapple, fresh grapefruit and dry ginger. Delicious! Even my 4 year old kid liked it 🙂

  6. This is an alkaline drink, and does help alkaline the body. Used together with other alkaline foods, it will improve your health because it does reduce the acid in your system.

  11. Sure, these foods effect the pH in your STOMACH, but you can’t possibly believe that it does much else. And just like having too low of a pH in your stomach is bad, having too high (or alkaline) has possibly worse effects. Your stomach acid is there to kill a lot of the bacteria that you ingest, because there is a lot of it. That acid filters out and kills most of that stuff, so as you raise the pH you also let more stuff in. There’s always a chance you could get some nasty illness that you could’ve prevented otherwise. Just eat a good variety of foods and you’re golden.
