- Half cup orange juice (or other flavors)
- Half cup fat-free yogurt
- 1 cup frozen berries (strawberries, cherries, cranberries, blueberries etc.)
Toss in the berries, orange juice and yogurt into the blender, and blend the contents for 30 seconds. Remove the lid to scrape off the sides and continuing blending for another 30 seconds, until the ingredients are finely pureed.

28. Detox Green Smoothie with Chia Seeds
Chia seeds are a fabulous addition to your diet as they are powerhouses of protein and a wide range of other nutrients. This is the ultimate superfood to brim up your daily diet with satiating goodness that keeps you full for hours, along with energizing your body. The best part is, this incredibly versatile food can be added to anything and everything.
However, most people don’t enjoy their funny texture, which is why, blending them into a smoothie is the best way to enjoy all their benefits without detecting the texture.
