Can I have smoothies on the 17 Day Diet?

Can I have smoothies on the 17 Day Diet besides those on the transitional day fast? I hear this question being asked quite a bit.

Here’s a little hint:

If the ingredients you use for your smoothie are 17 Day Diet approved, then go for it. When you think about it, the only difference between a salad and a smoothie is your smoothie is blended.

Here’s an example of what I mean – let’s say you want to have a kale and orange salad, but you don’t feel like chewing your food and you need to get on the road quickly.  

Putting your kale and orange (along with liquid) into a blender produces a different outcome: a green smoothie.

Green Smoothie Recipe Book

Even in my Addicted Green Smoothie recipe book, I feature 29 smoothie recipes you can use for meals or snacks on the 17 Day Diet.

So, yes, they are allowed on the diet!

Making green smoothies are super easy. In my green smoothie recipe book, I also have a section where you can make your own custom recipes.

How to Create a Custom Green Smoothie

In fact, making your own custom green smoothie recipe is super simple.

If you follow my formula of 1 cup greens, 1 1/2 cups of fruit and 1 cup of liquid (iced water, yogurt, kefir, etc), then you have yourself an easy, grab-and-go smoothie for breakfast or lunch.

Tired of the same old breakfast? Why not try a green smoothie as part of your 17 Day Diet! Get the recipe now!

You can certainly have a green smoothie while on the 17 Day Diet. If you want to make it a total meal replacement, make sure you have sufficient amount of protein (and maybe a little bit of fat such as flax seed or coconut oil).

At the end of the day, make sure your ingredients are 17 Day Diet friendly, and blend away!

  1. We’ve been having kefir, spinach, frozen approved fruits and a tablespoon of Chia seeds. Such a great alternative and our little ones love it!

  2. I make a simple breakfast smoothie, using 1 cup frozen berries, 1 cup kefir, and 6oz. fat / sugar free strawberry yogurt. Delicious, and surprisingly satisfying

  3. My only comment is that Chai seeds are not good in your intestines and can cause serious health issues as they stick the the lining of your intestines. It has happened to my friend. So be very careful!

    • Nicole, I’d make sure the protein powder is pretty close to containing only protein. Be careful for those ingredients such as added sugar or artificial ingredients.
