Green Detox Smoothie
When your body feels like it could use a little reset, a detox smoothie might be just what you need to refresh and replenish. We packed ours with prebiotic fiber and probiotics to help get your gut back in balance. Plus, some fresh fruits and veggies to fill up on vitamins (like A and C) and minerals (like iron and magnesium).
And let’s not forget about the matcha. It’s filled with antioxidants that our bodies love. Not to mention a serious dose of caffeine to help jumpstart your day.
Just blend the ingredients below, then top with a dollop or two of whipped coconut cream and matcha powder.
Serving Size: 3/4 cup
1 cup spinach
1 cup baby kale
1 banana, peeled, chopped & frozen
1/2 cup pineapple, frozen & chopped
1 cup coconut cream
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup (or more for extra sweetness)
1 tablespoon matcha green tea powder
2 packets or scoops Regular Girl
Whipped coconut cream and matcha powder, for serving
To make your life even easier, try making single-serving smoothie packs. Just chop all of your fruits and veggies, place in freezer-safe containers and store in your freezer. Then when smoothie time rolls around, all you have to do is pop the frozen pack into your blender along with the rest of your ingredients.
If you really feel like channeling your inner meal prep queen, you can also freeze the coconut cream in ice cube trays. The average ice cube tray (16 slots) will hold about 2 cups of liquid. Then just slide the cubes into your smoothie packs.
Now, for a little bit more about all those good-for-you nutrients.
Fiber & Probiotics
In each serving, you’ll get 5 grams of prebiotic fiber and 8 billion active probiotics from Regular Girl alone. They work together to help move everything through your digestive system at just the right pace so you can say ‘ba-bye’ to excess gas and bloating.
Bananas are notorious for helping prevent muscle cramps (thanks, potassium). But they’re also great at helping your body turn food into fuel with the help of vitamin B-6.
So much vitamin C. Just ½ cup of pineapple has more than half of the daily recommended amount of vitamin C, which helps keep the immune system healthy and works as an anti-inflammatory.
Spinach & Kale
Both are chock-full of vitamin A & C. We already touched on vitamin C, so we’ll move on over to vitamin A. It plays a huge role in bone growth and helps keep the skin healthy. Like vitamin A, it also does great things for the immune system.
