Strawberry Green Smoothie

I have a new smoothie recipe for you!  This is my Strawberry Green Smoothie. I don’t know about you, but I had indulged a lot over the holidays.  So after Christmas was over, I decided to quit all sugar, including maple syrup, for a while.  It was HARD, but I did it!  Once I had been sugar free for 3 days, I started a really good smoothie cleanse.  It’s called the 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse from JJ Smith. I really didn’t do it to cleanse, but more to re-set my body after eating all the junk.  I LOVED it and it renewed my love for green smoothies again!  It also inspired me to make this healthy smoothie recipe for you.

Strawberry Green Smoothie - My Whole Food Life

I really enjoyed this particular cleanse because it allows you to snack in-between the smoothies.  Some of the allowed snacks are nuts, seeds, fruits and veggies.  You can also eat hard boiled eggs, but I didn’t because I am vegan. Another great discovery I made, was that water works just as well as almond milk when blending smoothies.  I really didn’t even notice a difference!  So I am using water from now on.

Recipe Notes

If the smoothie is not sweet enough for you, feel free to add more fruit. I was trying to keep the sugar count down, so I used the lower sugar fruits.

  1. This is actually in regards to your Cream if Broccoli Soup recipe. I am posting here cause there was no leave a message option there. Question: you mentioned the soup could be made in a crockpot do you have an idea about how long to cook it? Thanks, Michelle
    1. You can't comment under the broccoli soup post? That is weird. You should have that option. I will take a lot at that post. I think you can do it in the crock pot. I am going to say at least 3-4 hours on high? That would be my guess. :)
  2. I did the 10 day smoothie cleanse from JJ Smith as well. I dropped 10 pounds and feel amazing - I've noticed more flexibility in my yoga as well. I love your blog and all of your recipes and just ordered the Paderno World Cuisine Tri-Blade Plastic Spiral Vegetable Slicer. Thank you for all of the great recipes
    1. Thanks Natalie! It is a great cleanse. I plan on doing it again after I go on vacation in MArch. You will love that Paderno. I have recipes for it when you are ready. :)
