A two-minute smoothie represents one example of a quick and easy recipe to include in a colon-cleansing diet, as described on Alive. Ingredients for a two-minute smoothie include protein powder, plain yogurt or a quarter of an avocado, water, flax seed powder, mixed frozen berries and a banana. Other quick recipes for a colon-cleansing diet include fiber-rich salads, soups and additional smoothie options.
A colon-cleansing diet emphasizes fiber-rich, whole, unprocessed plant-based foods, about six to eight glasses of water a day, and the reduction or elimination of meat, dairy and sugar, according to Alive. High-fiber foods include fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds and beans. Soups, salads, smoothies and snacks comprised of high-fiber foods characterize a colon-cleansing diet.
Homemade Body Cleanse suggests that raw soups, in particular, aid the colon cleansing process because their ingredients help to detoxify and balance the body.
