Juice Master Jason Vale shares one of his most popular juicing recipes for a delicious slimming smoothie. Most weight loss recipes don’t taste this good!

If you don’t fancy doing a juicing programme and want just a “meal replacement” smoothie to help you lose weight gradually – here it is! The Slimming Smoothie has been carefully designed to provide your body with the right essential fats, carbohydrates, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, water and enzymes – the right fuel to keep you sustained. If you replace your breakfast with this smoothie, it should keep your hunger at bay til at least lunch.

If you eat three times a day, you have totally transformed 33% of your daily intake to a no dairy, no wheat, no refined sugar, no trans or saturated fats, no artificial flavour, no artificial sweeteners, 100% pure plant based meal. Replace two meals a day with this and another smoothie from my book 7lbs in 7 Days, you’ve hit 66%. Follow that with an evening carb-free meal (perhaps some fish and salad) and you’ll be on your way to the land of the slim and trim in no time at all!


2 Golden Delicious apples
2 celery stalks
1/3 medium cucumber
1 lime, peeled
3cm chunk ginger
1/2 ripe avocado
Small handful ice


1. Juice the apples, celery, cucumber, lime, and ginger. Place the juice, ice and avocado into the blender, and blend until smooth.

Best served: as a meal replacement for breakfast. When you wake up, take on board some hot water and lemon, and go for a run. If you workout on an empty stomach in the morning you turn into a “fat burning machine”! You will be amazed at what a difference a little workout and this smoothie (as a meal replacement) once or twice a day, will have on your waistline and overall health.
