How to make a fat-burning green smoothie

green smoothie - fat burning man

Whew, what a whirlwind. Just finished filming in LA for a new documentary about how to get back to your ancestral roots and reclaim your health and vitality. Details soon…

To counter the jet lag, I just downed a huge green smoothie – have you had yours today?

I get loads of emails asking, “Abel, what do you put in your green smoothies?” I’m about to spill the beans.

Drinking a green smoothie every day will provide you with all the vitamins you need, which comes out to be more economical than multivitamins. Green smoothies have a balanced natural sugar content, so they offer a burst of energy that’s easily metabolized and a lot better for your body than the sugary juices you find on grocery store shelves.

Plus, they keep you hydrated, are easy to digest, and help boost your immune system to help shed excess weight.

Berry Healing Cleanse Smoothie

Berry Healing Cleanse Smoothie

We love this popular smoothie for the healing and cleansing balanced combination of vitamins, minerals, fiber, water and phytonutrients. Cucumber and celery are classic cleansers and the berries add more vitamins as well as antioxidants, fiber and delicious flavor. The ginger is a powerful cleanser and anti-inflammatory for healing and the chia seeds add protein along with omega 3 fatty acids with their many potent health benefits.

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen berries
  • ½ cucumber
  • 2 celery ribs
  • 1-inch piece ginger root
  • 1 tbsp hemp or chia seeds
  • 1 cup water

Add all ingredients to the blender, and process until smooth.

Both the stems and the leaves can be consumed, and are rich in antioxidants, the substances that help to defend your body from free radical damage. Cilantro is an excellent source of potassium, a mineral that helps to balance the fluid levels within your body.

  • 1 orange
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 2 cups greens
  • 1 handful cilantro
  • 1 cup coconut water or regular water

Add all ingredients to the blender, and process until smooth.

  1. I need to win the iPad, because mine is too old to run the app! I promise I’ll buy it if I win. :^D
    Your recipes always look so good!

  2. How do I access this app? I have an Android. I’m not super great with technology, but it looks like this is only available for iPhones. Is that correct? I would love to be a part of this challenge and be able to get these smoothie recipes.

  3. I am an avid smoothie drinker and have been for over 5 years! I find the 30 Day Smoothie Challenge App really helpful in mixing up the variety of smoothies I drink. Thanks Fat Burning Man!

  4. Love green smoothies…going to get the app for sure. Found that small variations have really big taste impact – ginger, cinnamon, more coconut milk, etc. Super food !

  5. I can’t wait to try out the recipes included in this app. If it’s anything like Caveman Feast and GF Desserts, it’s bound to be a hit at my house!

  6. Great job Abel & friends!
    The app looks beautiful, is installed on my iPad & iPod and the blender is waiting to be loaded! These recipes will make the perfect post-rowing workout smoothies. Thanks for all of your creativity, hard work and enthusiasm. Here are wishes for massive success!

  7. Looks like another awesome app! Can’t wait to get blending! Might need to bite the bullet and upgrade to a blendtec 😛

  8. I can’t wait to go shopping now! I also can’t wait until it’s warm enough to put my garden in so that I won’t need to go shopping as much.

  9. Just ordered the app! Am excited for lots of new smoothie recipes as I was getting a little bored of my usual. Am also happy to support Abel an the great work he’s doing!

  10. Just snagged the app. BEAUTIFUL graphic design! Who knew there were so many variations on a green smoothie…excited to try them!

  11. Melanie Goss says:

    I’ve actually tried something like this on my own & felt great. Just haven’t been consistent with it. Something like this will really keep me motivated. And keep the recipes interesting.

  12. This app is perfectly timed with Spring! Winter finds me eating warm foods and drinks, but Spring is a great time to start back with smoothies. Thanks for all of the ideas.

  13. What a terrific collection!!! Will absolutely be working with several of these (the need is great… LOL!) Don’t have anything that works with “apps” at this point, but may have to soon — this one alone looks like it would be worthwhile! 😀
    Many thanks – Jan

  14. Love the new app! Of course that’s no surprise, because I LOVE ALL YOUR APPS! Thanks for making it easy, beautiful, fun, and nutrient dense. I’ve been in a boring rut with my smoothies lately. Now I’ll have an excuse to be brave and try exotic and slightly frightening ingredients in my smoothie…. like bok choy 🙂 Yay for new culinary adventures!!

  15. Really want the recipes, but don’t have this kind of phone. Maybe I’ll win the ipad! Will definitely try the two free recipes — they look so easy.

  16. Rene Johnson says:

    Carl Jr has been asking us to do juicing. Think this will make it much easier with grocery list for the juice right on our phone! No more excuses! Looking forward to trying these!

  17. I have such a hard time coming up with new smoothie recipes that don’t all taste the same – or worse – have too high of a GI. Looking forward to testing out the app 🙂

  18. Thanks, Abel, you always give us some good information. I don’t have a device for apps yet, but it’s in my near-future. These two shared recipes are a good start for me; I really like the berries, veggies, & hemp seeds.

  19. This looks tempting. And surely would help me shed my fat away. Icing on the cake would be if I win an iPad too, apart from losing weight 🙂

  20. First I have to say that I love every recipe I’ve tried from your cookbook and Caveman Feast app. They are delicious and make eating whole foods really easy and effortless. I just purchased a Blendtec and have been experimenting with green smoothies some which have been good and some not so good. I saw your Green Smoothie 30 Day Challenge and got really excited, but was disappointed that there is not an app for Android. Do you have a date as to when it will be coming out on the Play market?

  21. I’d love to try, but I don’t have any of those tech devices (yet). Laptop, Kindle and a phone of just “average intelligence” 😉

  22. Tweeted, +1, Linked….this app looks great, and I’ve always been a big fan of smoothies, but am due for some new varieties!!
    Looking forward to adding these to my morning routine along with my healthy Thunder energy drink from WakeUpNow (see my site)
    Thanks and best of succees to ya’ ~Peace, Health, and Wealth

  23. I just found out about your blog through This looks like a beautiful app and I’d love to get it. Will you be having another $1.99 sale?

  24. The apps look good. Can you have a Kindle version?

    Thanks for all the information and leading edge thinkers (like you).

  25. Whoa! The Berry Cleanse smoothie is amazing…I went 1 cup of berries and 1 whole cucumber because I just didn’t feel I needed 2 cups of berries..that’s deeeeelicious.
