Detox Blueberry Fruit Smoothie

I don’t necessarily think that New Years means that you HAVE to immediately start dieting, but I feel like it is a good time to start out fresh. I like to refine my eating and exercising habits after the holiday bingeing is over. I recently did a cleanse to start out fresh before my move. One key component to a cleanse is flushing out your system and getting detoxifying nutrients, which makes this smoothie perfect for a cleanse.

This smoothie uses unsweetened cranberry juice and no dairy, yet it tastes SO good! If you are not trying to cleanse, you could add milk to the recipe; I am sure it would be delicious. I also think coconut milk would be pretty tasty too. Keep your eyes peeled for the core of my cleanse, a detox green machine soup, which I will be posting next week!

  1. Umm. It looks lovely.

    Wow, it looks so thick and creamy, I’d never guess there’s no milk/yogurt involved! Tasty!

  3. Smoothies are such a lovely way to start the morning. I usually have a smoothie a couple days a week to start off my day. I usually add milk but I bet the unsweetened cranberry juice would be so delicious! Good luck with your cleanse!

    I made some blueberry smoothies last week that used green tea! They were delicious! I wish I made time every morning to make a smoothie. It is a great way to start the day! Looking forward to that coconut smoothie recipe!

  5. Oh Yum! I want this tomorrow for breakfast!

    My problem is that I hate bananas. Any suggestions for a substitute?

  9. Well if you want the milky feeling without the milk, I would say bananas, but if you are OK with milk I would just substitute milk in, or even almond/soy milk.

    even a half of a banana is healthy and you can hardly taste it!!

    I use a protein powder with a banana, a T of cocoa powder, 8 oz of lactose free milk and a lot of ice for a great smoothie….so adding the bluberries and or the Cranberry juice wold be easy to do… I actually have some pure unsweetend cranberry juice that I bought not long ago and since it was so bitter, I was going to just toss it!! Guess I’ll have to try it in my smoothies!

    Just wondering how long should a person be on this cleansing drink & how long does it take to kick in ?

  16. This isn’t a cleanse drink. There is a whole cleanse that I did called the Master Cleanse that went with this. This is a healthy smoothie with detoxifying ingredients but should not be used as a cleanse. Hope that helps! Let me know if you want more information about the cleanse I did I can send it to you!

    Try just a forth of a banana.
    I’ve been reading a bunch of recipes from a variety of sites…other things they have used that might substitute could be: avocado, almond butter, coconut oil.
    Good luck and have fun experimenting!
