I love this green smoothie recipe! I’ve used this recipe in a few of my green smoothie challenges and it was so popular, I added it my RESET 28 Program for Energy & Weight Loss. It’s a step-by-step guide for losing weight, boosting energy and getting healthy!
This smoothie contains zero added sugar and it is loaded with nutrients! The nutrients in strawberries help protect against rheumatoid arthritis and have anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties. Chia seeds provide a rich source of omega-3s. (Don’t have chia seeds, try flaxseed!)
This green smoothie also contains almost 4 milligrams of iron!
Lemons (and other citrus fruits) are highly regarded for their cleansing properties. They are among the most water rich fruits which help support your body’s natural cleansing abilities. The fiber in lemons supports colon function (one of your body’s most important detox organs).
