Weight loss can be tricky. If you are having trouble losing weight or your weight loss has stalled, it may be time to try something different.
Detoxing your body can naturally boost your weight loss. Improved liver function and gut health allows your body to get rid of waste and toxins easier, and can have a positive effect on your metabolism.
Why not try incorporating detox smoothies into your daily nutrition plan? They can give you a boost of energy and support your weight loss goals.
Tips for Making a Great Smoothie
First, I want to share some tips with you for making a great smoothie.
These recipes are just a jumping off point for learning how to make your own detox smoothies for weight loss. Smoothies are incredibly easy to customize, so feel free to try out your own ingredients.
Favorite Smoothie-Making Accessories:

5. Rinse out your blender immediately so you don’t have to scrub it later.
4. Add plain yogurt, oatmeal or peanut butter to turn your smoothie into a meal and a complete protein source.
3. Use frozen fruit instead of ice. It’s quick and filling.
2. Add broccoli, spinach, or kale. You’ll add vital nutrients and you won’t even taste it!
