Stomach Cleanser Smoothie

This smoothie is the perfect way to start your morning. I used to make this all the time, but then winter crept in and it was hard enough to drink my usual morning green smoothie, let alone this one as well.

I always start my day by drinking 1 Litre (1 quart) of water. Sometimes I get real crazy and add the juice of a lemon. Sometimes this is really hard to do. The first few days of starting this are tough. And its hard to do on really cold winter mornings. I don’t push myself to drink it all if I can’t. The first week of doing this actually made me feel really sick, like a detox. But, that’s how you can tell it’s doing something!

I think this smoothie is going to replace my morning 1 Litre. My stomach felt GREAT after it :).

  1. That looks very tempting and healthy, shae. My husband has studied from Nsw university so I got the chance to live in Australia for some time after marriage. Sadly he was trasferred to singapore soon. Though that time was enough to fall in love with this beautiful country of yours.

    • Hi Nidhi, thanks :). This smoothie so perfect for spring weather which we are having here now. Australia is very beautiful! I feel very lucky to live here :)

    • Hi Janice, thats also a really good way to wake up in the morning! Sometimes when I am in a rush, I just juice a lemon and add to a litre (4 cups) of cold water. Yum!

    • i usually cut up a lemon or two into quarters, and add one squeezed to a glass of honey and cayenne, and repeat until the lemons are gone. it’s delicious, but don’t add too much cayenne until you get used to it.

    • Hi Carol, you should be able to get mint at any grocery or health food store, in the herb section. You could also get some seeds and grow your own in the garden or a pot. Hope this helps :)

  3. Good morning Shae. I’m now on day 5and I have lost 5 pounds. The first day it was kind of hard but now I do look forward to having this drink in the morning; I find it to be very refreshing.

    • Hi Mitch, no that would be fine. You could even add a honey thats good for your stomach, like Manuka honey which would probably help too. Hope you enjoy it :)

    • Hi Alex, I am not a nutritionist, this is just my opinion. All of the ingredients are great for aiding digestion and cleansing the stomach, you can look them up. You can feel the difference after drinking it.

  5. I thought it was going to be really thick for some reason. But to me it seems more like a juice. Very refreshing!

  7. I have been having terrible stomach problems for the last year, and have no health insurance so can’t afford to see a doctor. I am going to try this though and see if it helps! Thank you for sharing!
