For some time now we have been hearing a lot about detox smoothies, fat burning diuretic shakes, detox diets and things like that. What I see is very simple, they are the same fruit smoothies as always, combined in such a way to give them a different touch, to which nothing else that is processed is added and they help fight toxemia, which is a metabolic imbalance. that makes us fat. Fruits and vegetables in the raw state have always provided our body with innumerable benefits because they are living foods, and their main component is water … but not only water, but loaded with vitamins and antioxidants that cleanse our body. Fruits, whether they are whole meals or in shakes, do not need to be digested, in fact, they already pass predigested to the stomach. I give you a list of 5 smoothies to make the most of all the benefits they offer us and preferably take them in the morning so that they fulfill their function and contribute to the natural cycles of the body.
Beets are excellent for weight loss as they have great cleansing power, are loaded with vitamin C and give your smoothies great color. In this case, it is combined with carrots, celery and melon. It is like a variant of the 3 in 1 (Beet, carrot and orange juice of always) This combination is perfect not only to cleanse the body, but also a very good toxin-eliminating diuretic and apart from ginger is an excellent stimulant of digestion.
Ingredients for the beet smoothie:
• 1 beet
• 1 carrot
• 1 stalk of celery
• 1 large slice of melon
• The juice of half a lemon
We peel the beets and carrots. We cut them into small pieces and put it in the blender. We also add the melon slice already peeled and without seeds, the chopped celery and the juice of half a lemon. Add the ginger, turmeric and water until it becomes a smooth and homogeneous smoothie. You can add honey or a sweetener if you want a sweeter taste.
Pineapple and kiwi diuretic smoothie
This shake is very good and effective when we have fluid retention in our body, we generally notice it because we feel bloated, especially in the abdomen and legs. As we know, pineapple, parsley and grapefruit are excellent diuretics, grapefruit is a fat burner and they are also exceptional antioxidants that will undoubtedly bring great benefits to our body.

To prepare it, first we wash the apple and cut it in half without peeling it, we only remove the center and the seeds, then we cut it into pieces together with the kiwi and pineapple, already peeled.
Chop the grapefruit in half and scoop out the pulp with a spoon and add it to the blender along with the parsley. When everything is homogeneous, add the ice cubes, serve in glasses. It is detoxifying and very refreshing.
Another detoxifying and diuretic shake is this one that includes celery and parsley that will give it that bright green color and will help eliminate toxins from our body by cleaning our entire system of all the toxins that we have. The Kale and the mango are packed with properties that aid in this cleaning process. I love mango, it is one of my favorite fruits ^. ^

Lechoza and coconut smoothie
Let’s give our tummy a healthy dose of probiotics with this delicious milkshake. The lechoza is refreshing and the touch of lemon balances its flavor.
