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!

Green apple or red apple
I don’t think it matters Skylar, use what you have or that’s the tastiest in season! 🙂
Before I make this, I have a blendtec (fabulous) but won’t the soup button make this smoothie hot?
Hi, Chandra! Great question. The Soup setting is perfect for smoothies when you don’t let it blend as long as you would for soup. The soup gets hot, the longer you let it blend. This should be fine for shorter intervals for smoothies.
Thanks, and Happy Blending XOXO
Can we add carrot as well in GGS?
Adding carrot will definitely change the texture and the taste. However, if it’s one of your favorite ingredients, go for it. Try it out and see if it’s better for you. Feel free to alter this recipe to make it your own. 🙂 Thanks!
I just don’t see any of the female celebs mentioned to look in great shape. Maybe they only ever did the program once. Kimberly Snyder is the only one who looks in good shape probably because she lives by the program long term.
Love how much better I feel after just one week of drink the glowing been smoothie
The results are almost instant. If you’re really looking for results, I recommend the 7-day blender cleanse. Not only will you shed a few pounds, but you’ll also remove harmful toxins in your body allowing you to get a kickstart on your health journey.
Hi and thanks for the health. . What about baby spinach instead of regular? Which has the most vitamins? I love this recipe! It has the perfect balance of fresh green with sweet!
Hi Ruth! Either type of spinach will work and they typically have equal amounts of nutrients and vitamins 🙂 HAPPY BLENDING! XOXO
