New Moon Detox Smoothies

Detox beet root smoothie with Coconut

Yum! Who doesn’t love a yummy healthy smoothie? I used these smoothies as meal replacements in the morning- you can optionally keep all the contents whole as a fruit bowl rather than mixing! All of them are vegan and gluten-free 🙂

These recipes follow my New Moon Detox story on Instagram. New moon is a great time to detoxify the body and realign yourself to prepare for a new lunar cycle. Don’t worry, I don’t believe in starving oneself on strict fasting diets for no good reason. This is purification from the inside out, but please be conscious of your own body. If you are a woman on her menstrual cycle, this is not recommended as the body needs real whole grains and other complex carbs & proteins (not to mention lots of love and rest!). In any case, the 4-day detox involves real food, but mostly in smoothie and soup form. Let’s start with a beet-root breakfast smothie:

Ingredients for Beatroot Detox Smoothie:

  • Cooked and peeled beet root (you only need about half, add the other half to a salad or mix it up in a soup)
  • Season fruit: in summer you can add a few apricots or 1/2 a peach, and in autumn and winter I like to add blueberries and strawberries and a 1/2 of a banana
  • A few dates for sweetness
  • The juice of one lemon and part of the rind (if organic)
  • fresh chopped ginger
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • optionally add some coconut yogurt for thickness, mineral water or ice in hot weather
  • 1 teaspoon ground flax or hemp seed
  • cinnamon and coconut flakes to top it off

Mix it up and enjoy! There are so many great variations to this same smoothie, altering ingredients depending on the season, or if you are a woman, where you might be in your cycle. You can read more about what yummy foods are right for you to balance hormones in another blog post!

If you are very active and tend to do harder exercise in the morning, the next detox smoothie is great for a post work out:

Peanut Butter Detox Smoothie

Ingredients for P & B detox Smoothie:

  • Small organic green apple with skin
  • 1/2 avocado
  • juice of one lemon
  • A bit of lemon rind
  • 1 tablespoon raw, organic chunky peanut butter (or another nut butter)
  • teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1/4 c coconut yogurt – greek style is the best!
  • mineral water
  • cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground flax or hemp seed
  • top it off with shredded coconut flakes

Detox and enjoy 🙂
