Slimming Detox Smoothie – A Victoria Secret Model Favorite!

January 5, 2014

** See updated recipe here.

We all know stars love their juice diets, and who can blame them? They have amazing health benefits, and they also help them stay in great shape. With New Year’s resolution goals in full swing and many of us setting goals to be more healthy, I thought it would be a perfect time to share one of my favorite slimming and detoxing smoothie recipes. This recipe is Victoria Secret model Alexandra Ambrosia’s favorite juice recipe. If this gorgeous mother of two is drinking these and looks like she does, well then sign me up!

 

Another reason why I love this drink so much is the major health benefits.
-gives you more energy
-mental clarity
-crave less junk
-less snacking
-filling (I am so full after having one)
-improves skin
-improves your immunity
My challenge to you is to try this amazing smoothie in the next week and let me know what you think. Trust me you will love it! It really is tasty. Even my husband loves it. I like to incorporate one a day; either as a morning or afternoon snack. Here is what you will need to make.
2 servings Recipe-make one and save one for later, they keep well for one day.
1-very unripe banana
1-one large pear and or green apple
1 cup of spinach
1 cup of romaine lettuce or I prefer KALE
Juice of 2 lemons
1-cup of celery
Organic honey or I prefer Truvia (natural sweetener) to sweeten
1 cup of very cold water
 Add to blender.
 Blend together on high. I love the Ninja Blender.
Maison jars make the perfect to go cup. Add the lid and you can take your smoothie to work, gym or on the go wherever you’re headed. Your body will thank you!

  1. I’ve been looking for a healthy smoothie with regular ingredients. Made this today as is (but only one lemon). It was so good. Can’t wait to make it again tomorrow.

  2. I only have a small Ninja Magic Bullet blender. Can you recommend the amounts of ingredients for that? Thanks! Deana

  3. Well let me just start out by saying this recipe looks delish and i will be making tomorrow morning…The web can be a hostile place as it is. I see sooooo much negativity and just want to urge people to realize that life is short….choose to be amazing and be a blessing not a burden. Best wishes.

  4. Website wonderful I wish I could be like my website this site , My talking about things that are also important , such as your website,

  5. Thank you for the inspiration! I just made my version of it which included some substitutions based on what I had (and didn't have) in the fridge and freezer. Added a small slice of ginger, a generous dash of cinnamon, agave instead of honey and a persimmon instead of pears. Thank you. The color is beautiful and the taste is zesty. And the future seems just a little brighter. Thanks again.

  6. First of all, this is a smoothie recipe, people. There is no reason to leave such rude responses and treat the author and other commenters like idiots. Have some class.

    Second, I would just like to know what the texture is like on this recipe. It appears to be kind of chunky in the pictures, and I have a high gag reflex to things like that. Thanks!

    • Heather,
      Yes, I ate other food. I've had 4 heart attacks, and eat a fair amount of vegetables and fruit. I do try to walk and do minor exercises. I try to stay busy. However, there are benefits to eating regular food, your digestive tract needs to exercise itself on a daily basis. As long as everything is done in moderation, but must not stop.

    • I USE A NUTRI-NINJA, AND HAVE USED THIS PARTICULAR RECIPE SEVEN TIMES IN THE PAST 12 DAYS. I JUST CAME BACK FROM MY CARDIOLOGIST AND LOST 3 1/2 POUNDS. TO ME THAT'S GOOD NEWS SINCE I WAS LAST WEIGHED IN BY MY FAMILY DOCTOR 3 WEEKS AGO. I PERSONALLY RECOMMEND THIS SMOOTHIE, BUT KEEP IN MIND, EVERYONE'S METABOLISM IS DIFFERENT. HOWEVER, 3 1/2 POUNDS LOST BY DOING NOTHING BUT DRINKING THIS SMOOTHIE IS GREAT.

      AS FAR AS TEXTURE, IT'S SMOOTH, NOT CHUNKY. BLEND IT THOROUGHLY, AND ADD YOUR FAVORITE FRUIT IF BANANA DOES'NT AGREE WITH YOUR TASTE BUDS. I RATHER LIKE IT JUST THE WAY IT IS.

      GOOD LUCK, EVERYONE!

    • My sentiments exactly!!! Hate it when people are so rude. I used my nutribullett and makes ingredient so smooth, no chunks. It is delicious!! So glad I fount this…healthy and delicious. Who could ask for more.

  7. Someone here asked about why a green banana is relevant. I think it has to do with the sugar and starch content of a yellow banana. Green bananas have less sugar and the starch is a resistant starch. Resistant starches don't get absorbed into the body and therefore can't turn into sugar. Google resistant starches. HTH

  8. How long should you drink this to see results? With healthy eating. I'm not trying to lose weight (Im actually underweight,) I want to clean my liver and body of unnecessary body fat and gain weight in muscle!
