Personally, I haven’t been eating very well at all. Even when I started going to the gym 2 years ago and then continued my workouts at home, my diet is not something I paid attention to. As delicious as fast food, processed meat, ramen noodles and gummy candies truly are, I have to face the truth that they are holding me back from achieving my fitness goals. So to restart my diet before managing a healthier eating habit, we’re going to go on a little Smoothie Cleanse or Detox.
What is a smoothie cleanse/ detox?
A smoothie cleanse is a type of diet that involves consuming only blended vegetables and fruits with the goal to lose weight and/or detoxify the body. The duration is usually within one (1) to five (5) days, depending on your goal.
What is the difference between a smoothie cleanse (blending) and a juice cleanse (juicing)?
Juicing involves squeezing the juices from fruits and vegetables and separating them from the pulp. Blending mixes all of the edible parts of fruits and vegetables, including the pulp, or fibrous portion. This makes smoothie cleansing more filling, easier to sustain and more affordable.
Okay so for 3 days, I will not be eating solid food. All meals will be replaced with smoothies. 1 liter of smoothie every meal for 3 days. This bring the total to 9 liters of smoothie during the entire cleanse! Won’t this be fun? And, I just found the perfect companion for this super tough escapade right here in Metro Manila. Trust me, they’re muy delicioso!

My personal favorite is the Work Smoothie which is made out of Apple, Pineapple, Celery, Cucumber, Moringga and Ginger. This was the greenest and healtiest drink I think I’ve ever consumed and I was surpised how I really loved it. I thoroughly enjoyed the drink and you can barely taste the celery in it! I sip through these smoothies feeling like Popeye while working or watching my favorites shows on Netflix. My second favorite would be the Clean Mix which has this strong banana presence.

Some Reminders when Going on a Smoothie Cleanse:
Diet: Start a light diet 2-3 days before your smoothie cleanse to put your body in an alkaline state. This will also help you lessen the hunger cravings during the cleanse. Avoid alcohol, meat, dairy, processed food, sugars, and caffeine.
Attitude: Set goals to help yourself commit to the cleanse. What do you want to achieve? Why do you want to be better? Be prepared with reminders of why you want to detoxify your body, including your mind and soul.
Diet: It is recommended to only consume the smoothies within your cleansing period. If you strongly feel that you must eat, choose organic vegetables and fruits.
Activities: Do not engage in extreme and stressful activities during your cleanse. You may find yourself more sensitive during these times. Your energy levels will change so pay attention to what your body needs. Take some time to meditate. Light exercises, such as yoga and walking, are allowed.
Diet: Slowly go back to eating solid food. You can start off with some salads, boiled vegetables, and fresh fruits. After 1-2 days, you may go back to your pre-detox diet.
Activities: Take some time to rest and heal after your detox. Reflect and plan your activities carefully. Try to eat clean from now on.
FAQ’s about the Delizioso Detoxify Smoothies
How do I serve and drink the smoothies?
Shake your smoothies well before drinking. It’s best to pour what you can consume into a glass with ice and keep the rest chilled inside your fridge.
What do the smoothies taste like?
They taste exactly like all the fruits and vegetables combined. The sweetness comes from the natural sugar content of the fruits added.
Can I replace my meals with these smoothies?
You may substitute 1 liter of smoothies per meal.
How long will the smoothies last?
Always keep your smoothies refrigerated! There are no preservatives added so we highly recommend to consume your smoothies within two (2) days.
Can I keep my smoothies for more than two (2) days?
You may freeze your smoothies for up to five (5) days, depending on the blended fruits. Pineapple would taste bland and acidic sooner than the other fruits.
Why is the taste not exactly the same with my previous order?
The sweetness and ripeness of fruits may vary. Rest assured, everything is organic and weighed properly before blending.
