Does a Liver Detox Smoothie Even Work?Green smoothies can be really helpful in increasing your vegetable intake…but far too often a green smoothie can turn into a sugary beverage. I’m sorry to say but this is going to do more harm to your liver detox efforts, gut health and overall inflammation levels than the benefits of ½ a cucumber you chucked in to call it a green smoothie. If you’re serious about gut health or taking care of your liver, then increasing your intake of high-quality vegetables should be a high priority. A (proper) green smoothie is a great way to about it, and those vital nutrients will soon be working wonders on your insides!
The OPTIMAL Liver Detox SmoothieA green smoothie should (in my opinion) contain low sugar fruit only, or use ½ serve of a higher sugar fruit. It should also contain as many veggies as you can. My go-to’s are cucumber, frozen zucchini (trust me), spinach, and avocado. Of course you can branch out more than that. Adding “thickness” by using ice, frozen fruit/veg, avocado or coconut milk also makes it more like a meal. The smoothie becomes something you have to “eat” rather than drink. This helps with satiety and promotes a healthier response in your body. Finally, I’d encourage you to limit the green smoothies to once per day. Don’t displace other nutrient-dense solid foods in your diet simply for the sake of convenience.
