Out of all the detoxifying green drinks I’m going to show you, this is the strongest smoothie. If you aren’t used to detox drinks at all, I probably wouldn’t start with this one. Mint is a powerful blood detoxifier and reduces bloating. Lemon detoxes the blood as well, but it also flushes toxins from the liver and kidneys and aids in digestion. The taste of refreshing mint pairs nicely with the lemon in this smoothie, creating a light and delicious green-colored drink.
Don’t add any sugar to this smoothie recipe. We’ve got natural sweetness from the banana, blueberries, and pomegranate juice.
Kale: Kale is rich in vitamin K. The anti-inflammatory benefits of kale help you stay less bloated which will help prevent puffiness under the eyes and in the face in general. Kale also has sulfur content which helps reduce redness and it also deals with the flakiness of skin. As an added bonus it helps with bettering blood circulation in the body. Kale is definitely an important ingredient in any glowing skin smoothie.

We also want to share with you the shopping list with all the ingredients you’re going to need to make the challenge. The shopping list is for one person and to make 2 cups (500 ml) of each smoothie.
Even though the first smoothie was a powerful detoxifier, a green juice will beat out a smoothie anytime. That is because the nutrients are so condensed and you don’t have any fiber so it’s easy to digest. Like I said before, if it’s easy to digest your body can then use its energy to remove toxins from your body and clear your skin. However, easy to digest isn’t the only key component. Let’s look at white rice, because it is easy to digest. Yet, this doesn’t detoxify your body because it isn’t abundant in raw enzymes and nutrients. That is why high nutrient content is also important, and this green juice definitely does the trick!
