3 Day Detox.  What is it and why now? Why indeed. This is the highest calorie consumption time of the year. It doesn’t just start with Thanksgiving. It starts with Halloween and everything falls apart after that. Pre Christmas parties, during Christmas parties, reunions, office parties. There’s absolutely no way to avoid consuming too many carbs and sugar, sugar, sugar, sugar.  Kudos to you if you don’t feel you’ve overdone it. For the rest of us, there’s a feeling of discomfort and exhaustion.  With the 3 day detox, which is a manageable way to control your weight, you can achieve renewal by the first of the year. The detox is also a good way to curb your sugar intake.

Don’t wait for the New Year.  Leap into the New Year’s resolutions now and give it a boost.  Try it!  Turn a new leaf and jump into the green smoothie detox for the next 3 days.  Find 3 days on your calendar where you have a break from parties and dinners for the 3 Day Detox.  This is the best time to do it.


  • Increases your vitamins, minerals and antioxidants intake
  • Delicious smoothie which satisfies hunger
  • Keeps you hydrated
  • Get your skin glowing

3 Day Detox Smoothie

The ingredients below make 2 servings:

  • 2-3 leaves of kale
  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • 1 apple (red is sweeter than green.  It is your choice)
  • 1 small cucumber or half big cucumber
  • 1 bunch or 1 cup broccoli
  • 3-4 stems of cilantro
  • ½ clove of garlic
  • 1 nail size fresh ginger
  • 1 nail size fresh turmeric
  • ¼ lemon (with the peel)
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup ice (optional)


Wash all the ingredients.  Cut the veggies and the fruits.  Blend all together.  Add more water as needed.  You may want to prepare ahead the washed ingredients in a zip lock for the next 3 days.  It would be easier just to pick up the bag and throw the content into the blender for each meal.  Prepare the smoothies the night before and you will have them ready for you in the morning.

To your health!
