(NaturalNews) Spring time is upon us, and now is the time to get rid of excess body weight by doing a "spring cleaning" of sorts for your body. The perfect way to achieve this is to take a smoothie day once a week.

These smoothies will help your body get rid of built up toxins, improve sluggish digestion and elimination and jump start weight loss goals. They help flatten the belly, clear the skin and increase energy levels.

Smoothies require very little energy to digest and assimilate into energy. This is because the ingredients, which are whole fruits, are already pureed into easily broken down nutrients. They are also very filling due to the high fiber content and wholesome nature of the ingredients.

If you need to, you can eat a very light dinner on your smoothie day. However, it works best if you drink a smoothie for each meal the entire day. If you'd like to add more nutritional value or fiber, you can also add a green powder, wheat grass or ground flaxseed to the recipes below.

Mango Pineapple Smoothie Recipe

1 cup chopped fresh pineapple
1 cup sliced fresh mango
1/2 fresh orange, sliced with seeds removed
1/2 banana, sliced
3/4 cup plain yogurt
1 T. coconut oil
2 T. of whey powder or soy protein powder
1 t. stevia optional if additional sweetness desired
1 cup ice

Blend all of the ingredients together in a blender. Put the ice in last to avoid getting the ingredients stuck in one place. This recipe supplies fiber, beneficial enzymes from the pineapple and mango, protein from the banana and protein powder and a host of antioxidants.

Vibrant Berry Smoothie Recipe

1 cup chopped strawberries
1 cup blackberries
1 cup blueberries
1/2 fresh orange, sliced with seeds removed
1/2 sliced banana
1 cup plain yogurt
1 T. coconut oil
2 T. whey powder or soy protein powder
1 t. stevia (optional)
1 cup ice

Add all ingredients to your blender and blend. This recipe is full of antioxidants. Blueberries, blackberries and strawberries all contain anti-inflammatory properties as well which makes this an excellent recipe for those who suffer fromchronic pain.

The yogurt in both recipes adds beneficial probiotic active cultures. These help to speed sluggish elimination, reduce bloating and water retention and assist in managing weight.

Coconut oil contains beneficial fatty acids which help keep you fuller longer and add vibrance and clarity to your skin. Vitamin C is also excellent for the skin and immune system, and this is supplied in abundance in the fruits contained in both of these smoothie recipes.

After an all-smoothie day you will feel lighter, more energetic and less bloated. It is a great way to detoxify the body and give it a break from the normal foods we eat every day.
