To make the breakfast drink, blend 1 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of flax seed, 1 cup of raspberries, a banana and 1/4 cup of spinach, along with 1 tablespoon of almond butter and 2 teaspoons of lemon juice. The lunch drink blends 4 celery stalks, a cucumber, 1 cup of kale, 1/2 a green apple and 1/2 lime with 1 cup of pineapple, 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and 1/2 cup of almond milk.

For the dinner drink, place 1/2 cup of mango, 1 cup of blueberries, 1 1/2 cups of coconut water, 1 cup of kale and 1 tablespoon of lemon into a blender, along with 1/4 of an avocado, 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper and 1 tablespoon of flax seeds.
