This Chocolate Mint Smoothie Has the Nourishment You Need

Posted by cleanteam

Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream - it's a classic dessert that's both rich and refreshing. Unfortunately, it also typically contains excessive amounts of sugar and dairy that can both cause breakouts, bloating, and leave you feeling sluggish. We've taken the classic flavor combination  to create this good-for-you alternative chocolate mint smoothie, perfect for cleansing. You'll have a hard time believing it's a healthy breakfast.

Ring in the Season With This Vegan Eggnog

Posted by cleanteam

Traditional eggnog is prepared just as the name would suggest, with egg yolks, plus refined sugar, cream, and rum. We've made this vegan eggnog version sans alcohol and dairy (but we won't object if you spike it when not cleansing)! Thanks to the addition of soaked cashews, you'll still get the thick, creamy texture you crave from eggnog, without the sugar crash or bloating effects of dairy. You can optionally add some Vanilla Daily Shake for a fun alternative to your regular AM smoothie!

Posted by cleanteam

Have you tried this beautiful orange fruit before? A persimmon tastes like a hybrid between a plum and tomato and they originate from China. These nutritional powerhouses are anti-inflammatory and high in antioxidants. We've added even more anti-inflammatory value to this persimmon smoothie by adding turmeric. This is the perfect way to enjoy a fruit you might not be accustomed to, while changing up the nutrients you get in your morning shake.

Lavender Blueberry Smoothie with Cauliflower (And It's Actually Good)

Posted by cleanteam

We recently went through the reasons why you can't eat certain foods on the 21-Day Clean Program. This includes bananas. In spite of being a common smoothie ingredient, many people are allergic or sensitive to certain fruits and don't even know it. You can also become intolerant to bananas by consuming too many! So, I decided it was time to lower my sugar intake and omit bananas from my smoothies completely. I started to experiment and soon discovered that there is life without bananas ...

A Raspberry Smoothie with Surprising Protein Power

Posted by cleanteam

All too often high-protein meals equate to dry, skinless chicken breast or chalky protein shakes. Whether your goal is to build muscle or to simply add more protein to your diet, this vegan shake is a tasty alternative. Our Daily Shake is delicious enough to have alone with almond milk, but the combination of bright lemon zest, creamy vanilla, and flavorful raspberries will have you thinking you're eating dessert.

#MyCleanProgram - Jasmine

Posted by cleanteam

 When I was asked to write this post, I was on day two of the 21-Day Clean Program, and all was well in life. The Clean Diet didn’t seem or feel like too much of a change, and I thought to myself, what am I going to write about? I feel great, I love the two smoothies a day (I’m somewhat of a smoothie freak), and I’m not craving coffee (my one true vice in life). Well, it’s been quite a journey since day two, my friends.

This Low-Sugar Smoothie Bowl Is Awesome for Immunity

Posted by cleanteam

We all know we’re supposed to watch our sugar intake. Eating too much sugar (especially refined sugars) can lead to some serious health problems like insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s, obesity, heart disease, and even cancer. It's also very addictive and can damage our gut health by promoting the growth of unhealthy bacteria. 

Probiotics help replenish intestinal flora and restore balance to the gut. They can help tip the scale back towards good bacteria and away from bad bacteria, fungus and yeast, reducing sugar cravings. It's also important to make sure you have some enjoyable recipes like this low-sugar smoothie bowl.
