KIMBERLY SNYDER’S GLOWING GREEN SMOOTHIE
This is one of our FAVORITE go to green smoothie recipes of all time. Kimberly Snyder is a highly sought after nutritionist and for many of the entertainment industry’s top celebrities, and author of The Beauty Detox Solution.
Kimberly’s first book was published in 2011 and has drawn praise from celebrities and experts including Dr. Mehmet Oz, Drew Barrymore, Fergie, LeAnn Rimes, Josh Duhamel, Hilary Duff, Olivia Wilde, Channing Tatum, Teresa Palmer, Vince Vaughn, Jillian Barberie, Tom Hiddleston, Abigail Spencer, Kevin James, Chris Hemsworth, Owen Wilson, and of course, Blender Babes!
We love Kimberly Snyder and have featured many of her Beauty Detox recipes in addition to Kimberly Snyder’s Glowing Green Smoothie in our celebrity recipe section.
This Glowing Green Smoothie (aka GGS) could be a daily staple. It features lots of greens, and fruit to help balance that “green” taste. The lemon gives cleansing benefits in addition to the greens. Mix and match greens with fruit to your liking, or what produce you must use up! Ideally it’s 2 types of greens with 2-3 types of fruits plus lemon.
I personally don’t like celery in it (too strong of a flavor for me), so I leave it out. If I’m trying to detox, I’ll add some parsley or cilantro, or both and use more banana or even some dates to sweeten it up.
I love mixing up the greens & fruit, and sometimes using coconut water instead of filtered water. 🙂
The beautiful thing about the GGS is the idea is to drink a quart or so of green smoothie per day to easily get more than the daily recommended servings of fruits and vegetables!
If you don’t have a Blendtec or Vitamix or other high powered blender don’t fret, you can still make the Glowing Green Smoothie!
Just follow our tips on making green smoothies with a “regular” blender.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF ROMAINE AND SPINACH
Romaine: Just 1 cup of romaine lettuce meets the entire daily requirement of vitamin A, which works with vitamin C to create beautiful skin and prevent high cholesterol.
Spinach: Experts have identified at least thirteen different flavonoid compounds in spinach that provide antioxidant and/or anti-cancer benefits. These substances, along with other nutrients, offer a variety of healthy reasons to eat spinach – OFTEN!

Ok I must have done something wrong because this is the only smoothie from week one that I couldn’t even drink. I’ve loved 1-4. I might try it again – maybe I used too large of a head of romaine?
Otherwise – I have LOVED the other recipes and look forward to week 2! Thank you so much for the free download – it is giving me so many great recipes for my vitamin!!
that should be vitamix!
Please send me the green smoothie receipe. I’m from south africa and I’m in a area that so polluted and need help**thank you
Hello Marina! You can print the recipe from the post or copy it down. Please let us know how you like it!
Kimberly’s recipe in her book calls for “1/2 head large bunch or 3/4 small bunch organic spinach”, not 1 cup as shown here. This would be much more palatable for people complaining of too much celery taste here!
I’ll look into the original recipe again! Thanks for the heads up. I have a question though… how would reducing the amount of spinach change the celery taste?
The GGS is the best smoothie in the world! Not only did I lose weight but it gave me glow you get when you are in love. So many men and women have asked for the recipe that I have lost count. My son was having tummy problems for months so I decided to give him the GGS as well. No more tummy pain. We are addicted to the smoothie. God bless you Kimberly.
Super filling and refreshing!
The original!!! A 10 from me
Def a great go to green smoothie.
Yummy! Very green and refreshing
Super yummy! Very green tasting and refreshing
I would rate this one a 10! I think it is my favorite so far, it had so many veggies yet it didn't taste too green and because of the pear and apple I blended it twice to make it extra smooth. I made a lot so I had some for breakfast and I'll some for dinner.
I enjoyed it very much!! yummy!
The texture was unpleasant but it tasted ok. I don’t think I’ll make it again.
not sure where the other person’s name came from…but here is my review…sorry for a second post it’s not my fave but not bad either. Mine was super thick and VERY green haha. the toddler gobbled it up as usual. It makes A TON and VERY VERY filling
