Cleansing Smoothie

Prep Time: 5-10 min

Prep Notes: When preparing smoothies don’t worry about exact measurements, think ratios. 

• 1 C liquid
• 2 handfuls of fruit (fresh or frozen)
• 2 handfuls of tender greens or chopped vegetables

• Optional add-in's (superfoods such as protein powder, collagen, seeds, herbs, spices) – usually a tbsp of one or two, don’t add too many at once.

Cooking Time: 1-2 min in blender

Yields: 1 serving - double ratios for more servings


  • Soak flaxseeds overnight (about 1 tbps), add everything including the water to your smoothie the next day.
  • 1 C milk of your choice (I prefer plant based milks)
  • 1 small avocado
  • 1 pear
  • dates* (you can put 1 per cup or more, it depends how sweet you want the smoothie)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 piece of aloe meat
  • 1 tbsp of coconut oil or avocado oil


  1. Blend and drink or eat with a spoon if it’s too thick. 



Create your own smoothie using your favorite ingredients and have fun experimenting with different combinations!
