So there seems to be a new smoothie thats all the rave in Hollywood and they all swear it practically makes you glow!

Kimberly Snyder, clinical nutritionist and author of The Beauty Detox Solution, says a plant-based diet is optimal for clear skin, renewed energy, and weight loss.

When asked what one food she recommends for weight loss and why, she suggested her signature recipe for the Glowing Green Smoothie.

Made up of about 70 percent green vegetables and 30 percent fruit, this smoothie helps you eat far more greens than you ordinarily could or would.

Since the greens and fruit are blended, it makes for easy digestion and your body is able to absorb more of the vitamins and minerals without working so hard.

Thanks to all its nutrients and fiber, the smoothie is incredibly filling, so it keeps you from reaching for that midmorning second cup of coffee and that fatty snack you really didn't want to eat.

Here's what you would need and how to prepare this special smoothie just so you can glow.

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups water
1 head organic romaine lettuce, chopped
3 to 4 stalks organic celery
1/2 head of a large bunch or 3/4 of a small bunch of spinach
1 organic apple, cored and chopped
1 organic pear, cored and chopped
1 organic banana
Juice of 1/2 fresh organic lemon
Optional: 1/3 bunch organic cilantro (stems OK) and 1/3 bunch organic parsley (stems OK)

Preparation

  1. Add water and chopped head of romaine to blender. Blend at a low speed until smooth.

  2. Add spinach, celery, apple, and pear, and blend at high speed.

  3. Add cilantro and parsley (which help chelate heavy metals from your body).

  4. Finish with banana and lemon.
