If you’re looking for a natural way to lose those extra pounds or simply to detox your body, Upgraded Health has a solution. These miracle drinks are not only doctor recommended but also very tasty. They boost your metabolism and, as a result, your body burns more fat and gets toned more easily.
All drinks can be made with this Vitamix, which is my favorite blender and I use to make all smoothies, juices, and everything in between (even soups!)
1.) Strawberry Oat Smoothie
- 1 cup of coconut milk
- 1 cup of strawberries
- 1/2 cup of oats (these)
- 1 cup of yogurt
- 1/4 cup of chia seeds
- 2 Tbsp. organic whey protein
Blend everything together, and enjoy the flavor and benefits of the drink.
2.) Green Tea Infusion
- Prepare a cup of green tea.
- Add 1 Tbsp. raw honey.
- Add a pinch of cayenne pepper
- Add a tablespoon of ground cinnamon.
3.) Coconut Water Cocktail
- 1 cup coconut water

- 1/2 cup mango
- 1 cup kale
- 1/2 green apple
- juice from 1 lemon
- 1/2 avocado

4.) The Yerba Mate and Honey Elixir
Yerba Mate has the “strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea, and the euphoria of chocolate” all in one beverage. Of the six commonly used stimulants in the world: coffee, tea, kola nut, cocoa and guarana, yerba mate triumphs as the most balanced, delivering both energy and nutrition.
- 1 cup yerba mate (brewed)
- 1 tsp. raw, unfiltered honey
Brew Yerba Mate with 1 cup boiling water and 1 tea bag. Add 1 tsp. honey. Stir and enjoy warm.
5.) Lemon-Turmeric-Ginger Detox Drink
Most detoxification drinks for your liver involve a combination of ingredients that can help remove toxins and cleanse your system. Drinking lemon ginger turmeric tea is one of my favorite ways to start this process.
- 1½ cups of filtered drinking water
- 1 teaspoon of fresh grated turmeric root (or ½ teaspoon of turmeric powder)
- 1 teaspoon of fresh grated ginger root (or ½ teaspoon of ginger powder)
- ½ a lemon (juiced with peel)
- 2 to 3 twists of fresh black pepper
- 1 tablespoon of raw honey or to desired taste
To make your tea, combine the turmeric, ginger, and the filtered water in a saucepan. Turn the heat to medium-high and simmer for about 5 to 10 minutes. Do not let the mixture come to a boil. Strain the hot liquid and pour into a cup or mug. Stir in the lemon juice and honey. Your tea is now ready to drink.
6.) Green Juice
- 1 green apple
- 1 cucumber
- 4 leaves of kale
- 1 handful spinach
- juice from 1 lemon
- 1/2 inch ginger root
Peel the lemon and core apple. Add all ingredients through juicer and enjoy!
7.) Apple Cider Vineger Elixir
Drink first thing in the morning and before bed for a healthy digestive and immune system.
