Ingredients and its Health Benefits
Veggies and Fruits
Kiwi: One cup of peeled and diced kiwi contains 167 grams of Vitamin C. It is a great natural source of potassium and citrus! Green kiwis are detoxifying and naturally rich in fiber.
Pineapple: Freshly diced pineapple is a great natural sweetener that is plentiful in fiber, Vitamin C, and even aids in natural weight loss. Pineapple is rich in antioxidants and can help with digestion.
Green Apple: Crispy, green fresh apples are high in phytonutrients, vitamins A and C, fiber and are great to enjoy daily. One green apple contains close to five grams of fiber.
Spinach: Leafy spinach is naturally high in iron and anxiotidants which makes this a detoxifying ingredient for this smoothie recipe. Organic spinach leaves contains close to five grams of iron in addition to protein, fiber, calcium, and vitamins A and E.
Kale: Another nutrient-dense ingredient, leafy fresh kale is a great source of minerals, vitamins, and iron. Kale is rich in magnesium, calcium, protein and adds extra detoxifying qualities to the smoothie.
Lime Juice: Bold citrus is rich in calcium, vitamins A and C, potassium, and more. Fresh citrus gives this smoothie a hint of bold flavors and brings all the fresh flavors together.
Mint: Fresh mint is aromatic and contains calcium, Vitamin A, beta carotenes, iron, and can naturally aid in digestion. Fragrant mint leaves are great for this green smoothie and provide subtle flavors of mint.
Ginger: Anti-inflammatory fresh ginger is pungent and a great source of detoxifying nutrients. Ginger is known as a powerhouse ingredient that contains vitamins B and C, riboflavin, calcium, iron, phosphate, and more. Fresh ginger is used to help with nausea and is a superior antioxidant.
Water: Chilled purified water or coconut water allows this smoothie to not be super thick but smooth instead. Coconut water is rich with electrolytes and is a great source of hydration and potassium.

- Feel free to use fresh or frozen ingredients. If you would like a thicker colder smoothie, then use frozen fruits and veggies.
- For the best results, be sure to use a good quality, high-speed blender so the smoothie is perfectly blended.
- Use four to five small ice cubes for this smoothie if you would like it to be a little cooler. I only add a small number of ice cubes when I am making this smoothie with fresh ingredients(not frozen).
- Do not use a lot of ice cubes for this smoothie or they will water the ingredients down.
Fresh is best for this smoothie, but yes, you can make it one to two days ahead and store it in a clean airtight container or jar. You can also freeze the smoothie ingredients in individual packs and blend them just before serving.
Yes! Drinking a super green detox smoothie is great for weight loss, optimal gut health, and getting the recommended daily servings of fiber.
There are a variety of leafy greens you can use for this recipe such as swiss chard, romaine lettuce, beet greens, celery, collard greens, etc.
