If you’re looking for an easy change you can make with big results, I invite you to try drinking a fermented green smoothie daily for 30 days and see what happens. I did.
To be clear, this is not our ordinary 21 Day Detox article, but my first-person account. I am a woman in my early 40s. I have 4 kids and 2 businesses. I am a nutritionist, and I am in pretty good shape. I say this to let you know that I already do many healthy things every day, so it takes something very special to really make a drastic difference for me. This did.
And, I’m busy. I like healthy habits that make my life easier, not stressful.
I’ve already consumed a lot of smoothies in my life. This is nothing new to me. But, this recipe included a powder that is new to me. It’s Divine Health Fermented Green Supremefood®. More on that below. But first, here’s the recipe and what happened when this was my lunch for 30 days.
Fermented Green Supremefood® Smoothie
- 1 cup coconut or almond milk (from a carton, not can)
- 1 scoop Divine Health Fermented Green Supremefood®
- 1 cup fresh mixed greens (try alternating greens)
- 1/2 cup frozen raw cranberries (try alternating low-sugar frozen fruit)
- 1/2 cup frozen cherries (or berries) (try alternating fruits)
- 1/2 avocado
- juice from 1/2 lemon
- 1 scoop Keto Zone Hydrolyzed Collagen
- 1 scoop Keto Zone Fiber Zone
- 1/2-1 cup water
Mix all ingredients in a blender, adding water as needed for desired consistently (I typically use about 1 cup water). Makes 1 large serving. Enjoy!

30 Days. Here’s What Happened
So, I set off to drink this for 30 days. I had the products, and this simplifies my life, so why not. I looked at it as lunch, not anything really life-changing. Here’s what happened.
Modest Weight Change
As I said, I’ve drunk a lot of smoothies. I’ve also used collagen, fiber, fresh fruits and vegetables, and healthy fats for years. The only variable this time around was the Green Supremefood. Here’s what I experienced: I lost 3-5 pounds. I was not intending to change my weight. My lifestyle stayed the same otherwise. I don’t even think that I noticed the weight as I was losing it, but slowly and surely it was dropping. I weigh about once per week, mostly to keep track of my hydration (I’m an avid athlete). By the end of the 30 days, my normally very stable weight was now consistently 3-5 pounds lower than usual. Of note, I always look at weight in a 3-pound range to account for daily ups and downs…this can keep you from going crazy if you track it.
How did this happen? Healthy green smoothies are great for weight loss. They make you feel full because they generally are big in volume. In studies, this has proven successful for dieters (1). They also pack in a lot of nutrients for a relatively small amount of calories. What’s more, the detox nutrients in the Divine Health Fermented Green Supremefood®, fresh fruits and vegetables, and fiber helps your cells to be in a healthy state for weight loss. This means they are sensitive to insulin and ready to oxidize fat.
I generally have pretty healthy skin, but I do experience hormonal blemishes on my face every month. During these 30 days, while I fully expected to see my 3-4 typical pimples, I did not. The days came and went, and my skin seemed to simply be consistently healthy and clear.
I believe the ORGANIC detox ingredients in the Divine Health Fermented Green Supremefood® did the trick. Detoxifying compounds work in cells to make them healthier, including skin cells. What’s more, they help the liver process toxins, so they don’t build up throughout the body. Since this product is USDA certified organic, it certainly does not add to the toxin load like many cheaper products. The consistent shot of Keto Zone Hydrolyzed Collagen certainly didn’t hurt, either.
While losing 3-5 pounds may explain the flatter belly, I’ve always had a bit of a belly pooch no matter my weight. I’ve been extremely lean when I was at the top of my athletic competition days – still a pooch. I’ve had 4 kids and experienced weight gain and loss with every pregnancy – still a pooch. Honestly, I’ve accepted it as just how my body is, and I’m fine with it. So, I was amazed to see a flatter stomach, and a looser fit around the waist of my jeans, by the end.
How did this happen? I’m sure it has to do with theKeto Zone Fiber Zone combination of inulin and psyllium husk. It improves digestion, even when you don’t know there’s a problem, and helps reduce bloat. Perhaps my natural pooch was due to bloat throughout the day. It’s not there now.
Better Energy – No Afternoon Slump
I have a busy schedule, and sometimes despite a healthy diet need a cup of afternoon coffee to push through. I noticed an improvement of energy during the 30 days. It wasn’t a hyper or intense sort of energy or change. I just noticed I never needed that coffee.
How did this happen? I think there are a few things that contributed, and some I’ve seen before with smoothies. For one, smoothies allow your gut a rest from digestion because your blender did the hard part. Digestion is incredibly energy-consuming. When your body gets a rest from one function, it has more energy for others. In addition, look at these ingredients. This smoothie is simply jam-packed with energizing nutrition!
Smoothies can go one of two ways. In my experience, some people feel famished on them. Oftentimes, they are drinking either high-sugar, low-nutrition smoothies. Or, they are drinking smoothies that simply don’t contain enough calories.
This is not a low-calorie smoothie. What’s more, the combination of fiber, high-volume fruits and vegetables, water, and air whipped into it (this always happens with a blender), allows it to help you feel full and satisfied, without needing a big solid-food lunch or an afternoon snack.
How did this happen? Fiber absorbs water from your gut and creates a high-volume mass that expands your stomach and digestive tract. This helps you feel full. In addition, this Keto Zone Fiber Zone promotes slow, healthy digestion. Instead of experiencing a peak and valley of energy, you get slow steady energy.
I want to be completely honest in an age of tricky internet articles – I work with Divine Health. My job does not require me to report on personal experience with any products. But, I was absolutely blown away by this experience personally and professionally. I’ve become passionate about telling others about the easy benefits I experienced, with just this handful of products and one Divine Health Fermented Green Supremefood® smoothie per day.
