7-Day Green Smoothie Challenge (with Recipes!)

Are you ready to jump into a 7-day green smoothie challenge? You should be! Whole foods smoothies are the next step in your wellness transformation journey.

Why?

Green smoothies are a time-effective way to get in a ton of micronutrients and macronutrients in a way that is easy for your body to digest and absorb. They are also easy to prepare in advance so that on busy mornings you can just throw a prepped smoothie bag in the blender and then be on your way.

In addition to the fact that they are a straightforward and effective way to increase your fruit and vegetable intake per day - something that most people in America could use help with -  smoothies preserve fiber, vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals that are essential for body detox processes.

Our bodies are constantly trying to repair themselves; they have a survival code written into them that’s both self-regulating and detoxifying.

If you find yourself a little sluggish in the afternoon, have irregular bowel movements or have more than the occasional glass of wine (no judgment!) a green smoothie challenge can be the easiest way to reboot your system - and can complement a bigger full body detox, if you want to embark on one.

Help your liver, adrenal glands, kidneys, gut, and blood get rid of all the things that are no longer serving you - which will more than likely also help you shed a few unwanted pounds!

I talk in depth about the benefits a green smoothie challenge can have when it comes to detoxing your body in this short video. Plus, I take you through a three-ingredient smoothie to detox your kidneys.

If you’re ready to commit to one week of protein-rich, organic, healthy and delicious smoothies, you’re in the right place!

7-Day Green Smoothie Challenge Recipes for Busy People

This seven-day green smoothie challenge is going to give you a boost in creating a new healthy habit and also get you familiar with the many benefits smoothies have to offer.

If you’re brand new to smoothies, have a sweet tooth, think kale is gross and a ‘green smoothie challenge’ sounds like your worst nightmare, this is the perfect smoothie challenge for you! 

I’ve got 7 smoothies recipes to get even the least veg-friendly person through the first week. They are:

  • Sweet enough that you won’t miss sugar - and healthy enough to even help you curb those sugar cravings
  • Protein-rich, so you can have them for breakfast
  • SO tasty you won’t be able to tell it’s a green smoothie The smoothies don’t actually look green all the time!
  • Perfect for those who think greens are rabbit food but still need it

These smoothies are delicious, full of nourishing superfoods, easy to shop for and will help you make this 5-minute ritual a habit you’ll enjoy and benefit from for the rest of your life.

First, a shopping list!

There’s a good chance you already have a bunch of these ingredients sitting around your kitchen. So go through this list and cross off what you already have, then head off to the grocery store!

  • 1 container Organifi Complete Protein, vanilla
  • 1 container Organifi Complete Protein, chocolate
  • 1 container Organifi Green Juice
  • Almond milk
  • Coconut milk, 2 cans
  • 1 container organic coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder

As you read through the recipes, you'll see that not all of these have greens in them, but most do! Feel free to add a Green Juice drink whenever you feel like it for an extra dose of delicious veggies.

#1 Monday: Pina Colada Protein Smoothie

It’s Monday and I am giving you an easy and sweet pick-me-up for your morning! Kick-off this green smoothie challenge with a tasty pineapple and coconut smoothie that is going to give you an energy boost as well as 21 grams of protein AND some healthy fats to keep you satisfied until lunchtime.

  • 1 ½ tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 scoop Organifi Complete Protein
  • 1 cup pineapple
  • Handful of ice

Instructions: Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Makes approx. 16-24 oz.

#2 Tuesday: Minty Protein Slim Smoothie

Mint is one of my favorite herbs to throw into juices and smoothies. It gives a nice fresh taste, a kick of energy and is excellent for digestion. Combined with the unique digestive enzymes in Complete Protein, this smoothie is a good choice for people who normally feel digestive upset after drinking blended veggies and protein.

  • 1 scoop Organifi Complete Protein
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp fresh mint
  • 1 small handful of spinach
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips (optional, adds a fun texture)

Instructions: Combine all ingredients into a high power blender. Drink immediately.

Step It Up: Add green juice for a surprising mix of refreshing flavor and maximize the health and detox benefits of this green smoothie challenge!

#3 Wednesday: Banana Coffee Protein Smoothie

It’s hump day and you need your coffee ASAP! I’ve got your back. In this supershake, we combine chocolate protein with a cup of your favorite coffee. It’s the perfect start to a Wednesday and a nice change from the black coffee or sugary latte you’ve been drinking.

 

  • 1 scoop Organifi Complete Protein
  • 1 cup brewed coffee, chilled
  • 1 large banana
  • 1 cup plain coconut milk yogurt
  • 1 tsp chia seed
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp turmeric
  • 5+ ice cubes

#4 Thursday: Orange Julius Smoothie

This is for all you citrus lovers. The orange will provide 130% of your daily vitamin C, Complete Protein doubles as a whole-foods multivitamin, coconut milk is full of healthy energizing fats and the banana will make it creamy and delicious.

  • 1 whole orange
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 1 whole banana
  • ⅓ cup coconut milk
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 scoop Organifi Complete Protein
  • ¾ cup water

Instructions: Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Makes approx. 16 oz.

You’re over halfway through the seven-day smoothie challenge and you’re doing great!

#5 Friday: Vanilla Superfood Smoothie

There is nothing like throwing together vanilla protein powder, some nut butter, a banana, and almond milk. This is one of my absolute favorite smoothies and is especially energizing because of the medium-chain fatty acids in the scoop of coconut oil. This tastes just like a milkshake (the nut butter and coconut mask the spinach taste) and is going to power you through the first day of the weekend.

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 scoop Organifi Complete Protein
  • 1 tbsp nut butter (I prefer almond or cashew)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 cup pineapple
  • 1 handful of spinach or kale
  • Handful of ice

Instructions: Blend all ingredients together until smooth.

A green smoothie challenge that includes a milkshake smoothie? YES! And you’re still getting all these incredible health benefits that boost your immune system, help your organs detox your body, and feel good about yourself!

You’re claiming your health! Great work!

#6 Saturday: Green Goodness Smoothie Saturday

This is a great day to start off with a cup of greens! Instead of protein, today we are filling you up with stress-reducing superfoods so that you can replenish your cells and cleanse your body over the weekend. With ingredients like ashwagandha in Organifi, kale, avocados, and cucumber, you are getting a powerful punch of micronutrients and detoxifying superfoods.

Don’t worry about the flavor; you won’t notice it’s mostly green! The banana, apple, and mint will more than cover your basis. It’s so good, we’ve had kids drink it as “monster juice” and they loved it!

  • 1 scoop Organifi Green Juice Powder
  • Handful of kale
  • ½ frozen banana
  • ½ green apple
  • ½ avocado
  • ½ cucumber
  • 6 mint leaves (more if preferred)
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 ½ cup water (more or less depending on thickness desired)

Instructions: Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Makes approx. 16-24 oz.

#7 Sunday: I’m Beet Smoothie

You Made It! Your seven-day smoothie challenge is in the bag. After a busy and productive week, it’s time to kick back and take a day for yourself. Beets are high in immune-boosting vitamin C, potassium and manganese.

Worried you won’t like the taste? We mix the cooked beets with fresh blueberries and protein powder to keep things sweet and creamy. The blueberries are packed with anti-aging antioxidants that will also help protect your heart.

  • 1 scoop Organifi Complete Protein
  • ½ cup fresh blueberries
  • ⅓ cup sliced, cooked beets
  • 1 small handful of spinach
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk

Instructions: Blend all ingredients together until smooth.

How a Smoothie Challenge Helps Detox your Body

I’m a big proponent of green juice, whether alone or mixed into a smoothie; leafy greens are loaded with vital phytonutrients that help oxygenate your blood and nourish your body. However, I won’t deny that some people find it hard to get into the habit of juicing or drinking smoothies, that’s why I have designed multiple strategies to help you get in the groove and ease into this lifestyle.

There are so many health benefits! A green smoothie challenge (even when not all the drinks are green) is just one tool to cleanse and energize your system.

Not ready for a seven-day green smoothie challenge? Try a three day smoothie challenge instead!

Why? Well, it...

  • Can help enhance nutrient absorption by simplifying the digestion process
  • May boost energy, because of that simplified nutrient absorption
  • May help balance your gut. Smoothies use the whole fruit or vegetable, keeping the fiber that helps neutralize bacteria in your gut and promote healthy digestion and bowel movements
  • Aids your immune system giving you more vitamins and minerals that help you build stronger defenses
  • May help your body detox by injecting those vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients into the bloodstream, which stimulate the adrenal glands and help your liver, kidneys and intestines flush out toxins 
  • Reduces sugar intake! As your body detoxifies from excess sugar, your cravings go down, helping you control your diet and weight better.

Why wouldn’t you try a green smoothie challenge knowing all that? Start today and let me know how it went!
