In January, we decided to go on a 10-day smoothie cleanse. Immediately after the holidays, we decided we had to get back on track.
We have done the smoothie challenge, and the smoothie diet before and we have seen great results. However, what we did find is that it is much more sustainable to do it for less than 21 days. 10 days seemed to be the best range of time for us to drink smoothies only. So, we went on a 10-day detox weight loss smoothie cleanse this time, and we are sharing our recipes!
10-Day Smoothie Cleanse Benefits
People begin a smoothie cleanse for different purposes, the most common being weight loss.
Here’s a full list of the benefits of the 10-day green smoothie cleanse:
- Weight Loss
- Immune Boost
- Lowered Cholesterol
- Bone Health
- Digestive Health
- Eased Constipation (If Present)
10-day Green Smoothie Cleanse Instructions
You will need to be drinking smoothies for the whole day, so it’s best that you prepare smoothies ready to go for the day in the morning.
Here are some other instructions you need to follow:
- Avoid Processed Inflammatory Foods
- Make Sure You Sleep Well
- Ensure Your Smoothies Are Filled With Nutrient-Dense Ingredients
- Keep Active
- Enjoy The Results!
In a nutshell, you will be consuming primarily smoothies for the next 10 days. If done well, and you get all the vitamins and minerals from your smoothies, you should find it really easy.
For that reason, the smoothie recipes we have provided for you in this article are packed full of the right nutrients and goodness your body needs.
Other Snacks You Can Eat During The Smoothie Cleanse
You can of course drink smoothies only during the 10-day period, but some people may find it hard. And for that reason, there are a couple of snacks and ingredients you can include during the cleanse.
- Raw Bars
- Raw Brownies (much like raw bars)
- Boiled Eggs
- Seeds & Nuts
- Dried Fruit
- Nut Butter
- Raw Veggies
The way we like to eat the tuna is by using a can of tuna and use lettuce as a base, and we add the tuna chunks on top and add chopped fresh dill.
A perfect high-protein snack!
