If you want to design your own detox smoothie program there is also a section in the book that gives details how to achieve your personal detox goals. It explains the health benefits of the fruit and vegetables by colour and is really interesting.

Each of the detox programs includes 5 different detox smoothies and an 11.00am Cleansing Smoothie.

The recipe I’m sharing is called Purple Sunshine Detox Smoothie. I’ve modified the recipe slightly to add an Anti-Aging component.  I have also included fresh ginger for it’s metabolism boosting properties. I’m not taking part in a detox cleanse, so I added extra water.  This enabled me to drink my smoothie over the course of the day.

Even if your not a detox type of person, the smoothies look pretty delicious. The first smoothie in the Super Smoothies is “Oaty Nana”.  I will be making this smoothie for the kids in place of a regular banana smoothie.  It looks so much nicer and far better in nutritional value.

Now I have a chance for two lucky readers to win a copy of Super Smoothies by Fern Green.

About Julie


  1. Have done many detoxes, including water fast for 6 day.
    10 master cleanse, done that a few times for different lengths of time.
    Juice feasting (drink as much juice as you want… This gets expensive)

    At present, I am trying to create a healthy energy drink replacement, something that tastes good, but also gives you a not subtle kick of natural energy..

    So far it looks something like the below:

    20gm Aloe Vera
    20gm strong elderberry juice
    50gm Blueberry
    50gm Mulberry
    150ml Very Very strong yebra marta
    2 big handfuls of ice..
    dash of honey to taste..
    Stivia if you have a real sweet tooth (which I do)

    Blend in hardcore blender..!

    Not 100% happy with it..
    A Can of V or a very strong coffee still works better, which would be the ultimate end game, to replace one of these..

  2. The smoothie you made looks amazing. I would love to do a detox but I have to be very organized to get it done, and at the moment that is not happening 🙂

  3. That’s an amazing smoothie! Detox..well, not at this time of year 🙂 but a good smoothie is always great for any time.

  4. A very sensible idea to start thinking about smoothies now!. i must must come back and read your snap chat post x

  5. Hehe I’m putting that away for after Christmas but I have that book! 😀

  6. Alesah Villalon :

    Did I hear “detox”?! I love detox juices and smoothies!!! This giveaway is just perfect to shed off the holiday bulge 🙂

  7. Going to finish my Christmas shopping today! And with the way I’ve been consuming food and beverage this holiday season, I’m going to be so ready for detox come January. So this is super timely — thanks!

  8. I’ve been drinking too much alcohol, need to drink more of these 🙂

  9. Sounds great! I have done a full fasting detox once for 3 days I loved the results but I found I don’t have the willpower to not eat for 3 days again.
