Why choose healthy smoothies that have no (or very little) fruit?
Most fruits have a high acid and sugar content, which can cause a pH imbalance in your body. Eating more alkalizing foods like leafy greens creates a more balanced pH.
You will notice that the only fruits in these green smoothie cleanse recipes are lemons and limes in these recipes. Even though lemons and limes are technically fruit, they’re considered alkalizing, which helps to balance your body’s pH levels.
Green smoothies pack in several servings of leafy greens in one glass, delivering big on antioxidants to boost immune function and neutralize free radicals.
You’ll also get tons of fiber, aiding in digestion and stabilizing blood sugar levels.

Jar individual servings and store them in the refrigerator if you plan to drink the smoothies within a couple of days.
Make a couple of big batches ahead of time and store in the freezer. Set the smoothie 30-45 minutes before you plan to drink it; I put mine in the fridge overnight and then take them out of the fridge when I get up in the morning; they are perfectly thawed after a night in the fridge.
