People take a different view on the detox trend because it has it’s pros and cons. As I’ve been searching the internet about detox smoothies and other pure green foods I found it hard to find the perfect drink or food that suits my needs.
I don’t say that I’m totally into the detox trend – I’m absolutely not!I can say that I prefer a well-balanced healthy nutrition that comes with tasty and easy recipes. I started collecting my favourite drink- and smoothie recipes that I enjoy drinking regurlarly. On the weekends I stand up early and spend a lot of time in the kitchen to prepare my ultimate breakfast that always includes my favourite smoothie besides fruits and fresh bread. I decided to scoop up my favourite recipes to share them with you. I think most of you have just started their bikini body workouts to get in shape right on time for summers season- Check out my recipes below as they are just great to fit in your daily nutrition!
Detox Diary #1 – Pure Green Coconut-Smoothie
One of the main ingredients is Perfect 10 Superfood by LA Star Greens. I was happy to have it in my goodie bag that I received at The Daily Dose Social Academy event. I’m a huge fan of green smoothies so I decided to test is for a while. It comes in small bags and as a powder that comes with a great source on important nutrients – Vitamin C, B12 and iron. It’s raw, organic and vegan which in my opinion is a great benefit. Some main ingredients are acai berry, algae and much more. You just need to add one bag to your favourite smoothie and your done. One sachet is enough for a nice cup of your home-made smoothie (about 250ml). I was only able to order the powder online, until it became available at MaranVegan in Vienna. I drink that smoothie quite often recently, of course it is the most important part on my weekend breakfast table.
- ¼ cucumber
- 100 ml soy milk
- 100 ml coconut water
- 1 tbsp. chia seeds and more for decoration
- ½ tbsp. coconut flakes
- 1 sachet Perfect 10 Superfood
First, add the liquids, than the other ingredients. Depending on your blender’s power, it might take a while to blend all the ingredients – trust me, it’s worth the wait.
When it’s done and creamy, pour it in a glas. If you like to add some eye candy, be sure you don’t forget some cocoa flakes on top.
Detox Diary #2 – Cranberry-Dandelion-Drink
Just found this awesome recipe on Pinterest but decided to modify it for my taste. It’s a fresh drink, that purges your body. Dandelion roots as one of the main ingredients are great and helps when it comes to debloating. I don’t drink a lot of water during the day but since this drink I do more than before. It has a light taste and is great for everyone who enjoys drinks and especially water with a hint of flavour. You might find yourself visiting the toilet very often since it works like draining function for your body! But above all of this, it’s biggest pro is it’s function as fat burner.
- 1 great water jar filled with water
- fresh lemon juice (1 lemon)
- 3-4 tsp. pure cranberry juice ( natural without sugar!)
- 1 tsp. dandelion roots (pharmacy)
Mix all ingredients together and steap it for about 10 minutes. Use a tea strainer for the dandelion roots to make it easier for you to remove when the juice is ready.
I hope you enjoyed my recipes! Let me know if you decide to try them ;)
