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.

Extra Iron Smoothie

Extra Iron Smoothie

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.

    Your recipes always look so good!

  • Leslie says:

    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.

  • Tess says:

    Fingers crossed! Just got a Vitamix, would love some new smoothie recipes!

  • THIS SOUNDS SO GOOD! Inevitably when I try to make my own smoothie recipes I wind up adding too much ginger and blow my tongue out within the first three sips.

  • Kim says:

    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!

    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.

  • Diana says:

    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.

    Great giveaway and great smoothies! 🙂

  • Jan says:

    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

  • Monika says:

    Looks great!

  • Rose says:

    So exited to try some of these! They look great!

  • Janae says:

    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!!

  • This is a great app to keep me in the 83% Paleo Zone! Thanks, Abel. Cheers!

  • Everett Alexander says:

    What type of blender is needed for these recipes?

  • Alexander Gray says:

    Job done. New to juicing but loving it so far. I’ve never consumed so much raw fruit and veg.

  • Kimberly H. says:

    I just bought a brand new juicer. I think this will encourage me to use it!

  • Lisa says:

    Yum yum yum! These look awesome. They will definitely help with my early morning breakfasts!
    Thanks for the discount!

  • Cheryl says:

    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.

  • karen says:

    I am really excited about this! I love the pictures, and the shopping list is really helpful! Thanks very much!

  • Kyle says:

    I can’t wait to try this challenge!

  • 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!

  • Chava says:

    On my way!

  • elaina says:

    can’t wait to try these awesome looking & sounding smoothies
    thanks so much

  • Kelly says:

    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 🙂

  • holly says:

    I’m really enjoying your pod cast Abel. Thanks for sharing so much great knowledge with all of us followers.

  • Eric Reed says:

    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.

  • Anshul says:

    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 🙂

  • Shannon says:

    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?

  • MissBeth says:

    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” 😉

  • Miguel says:

    Great app. It has all you need to make awesome smoothies !

  • Marcia says:

    Love this app!! Off to stock up on all the ingredients tomorrow. Thanks for all you do for us!!

  • Bud Foltyn says:

    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

  • Erik says:

    Hurry up and get this on Android!

  • Molly says:

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

  • Peter says:

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

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

  • Peter says:

    Do you need a juicer or will a blender work?

  • Tim says:

    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.
