Green Detox Smoothie

My favourite Green Detox Smoothie. Rich in antioxidants, vitamins and packed with goodness. It tastes amazing and you wouldn’t even guess it’s good for you!

I’m starting the new week on a healthy note with this Green Detox Smoothie. I originally posted this recipe back in January 2014. It’s a firm favourite of mine so I wanted to update the photos and share it once again.

This is my absolute favourite green smoothie. It makes a delicious and nutritious snack or breakfast and whenever I sip on this smoothie I always feel energised and my skin is glowing.

This last month I’ve been eating really well and trying my best to eat more healthily as I’m always baking so many sweet things like cakes and cookies. I’ve been experimenting and testing out new healthy recipes recently like these energy bites.

The one thing I love most about this green smoothie, is how beautifully vibrant and naturally colourful it is. Almost just as appealing as a plate of homemade cookies! Almost… 😉

This green smoothie has a tropical twist. A gorgeous combination of mango and pineapple adds the natural sweetness. It tastes like sunshine and transports me back to the summer.

Smoothies are seriously one of the easiest things you could make. Once you have you ingredients on hand, grab a blender and blend everything all together until smooth and no lumps remain. Then pour into glasses (this recipe makes two small smoothies), grab a straw and enjoy it. I sometimes make smoothie bowls. Just pour the smoothie into a small bowl and top with fresh fruit, nuts, seeds and granola.

Makes 2 small smoothies (or 1 large glass)

Ingredients:

1 large mango, peeled and cut into chunks

165g (1 cup) pineapple chunks

2 large handfuls of fresh spinach

120ml (1/2 cup) apple, orange or pineapple juice

Method:

  • Place the mango, pineapple, spinach and juice in a blender. Blend until smooth. Add more juice if you want the consistency thinner. Serve immediately. The smoothie will store in the fridge for one day.

Notes:

  • The mango and pineapple can be blended fresh or frozen.
  • You can swap the spinach for kale, if preferred.
  • The juice can be replaced for coconut water.
