How To Make a Green Detox Smoothie

Get the complete ingredients list and instructions from the recipe card below.

  1. Put all the ingredients in a high-powered blender.
  2. Blend until smooth.
  3. Pour into a glass and relish the goodness!

Expert Tips

  • If you have time, soak the blanched almonds overnight or for a few hours. This makes them easier to blend and enhances their creaminess in the smoothie.
  • Start by blending the spinach and coconut water first to ensure the spinach is finely blended. Then add the frozen ingredients for a smoother consistency.
  • If the smoothie seems too thick, add a bit more coconut water. If it’s too thin, toss in a few more frozen blueberries or another handful of spinach.
  • For the best taste and texture, enjoy the smoothie right after blending

Delicious Variations

  • Make it even more tropical: Replace the coconut water with pineapple juice, or add a handful of frozen pineapple chunks for a burst of freshness.
  • Make a Smoothie Bowl: Try a Green Smoothie Bowl instead!
  • Try different berries: Mix and match blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, and blackberries for your perfect blend.

Prep and Storage

  • Prep Ahead- I do not recommend making this recipe ahead- It is best right after blending!
  • Store- If you have leftover smoothie, you can store the smoothie in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. Keep in mind that the color may darken due to oxidation, but it should still be safe to consume.
  • Freeze- Prepare individual portions in freezer-safe containers or ice cube trays. Freeze for up to 2-3 months. When ready to drink, thaw the frozen smoothie in the refrigerator overnight or blend the frozen cubes directly into a smoothie.

    I do more juicing than I do making smoothies but i do enjoy a smoothie now and then just to change things up. I am always looking for new recipes that can provide some of the same effects that drinking fresh juiced fruits and vegetables has and this recipe gets dang close. It sounds very delicious and healthy so I will definitely be giving this recipe a try.

    This reminds me of Helen’s post workout green smoothie. I don’t care if it’s for before or after a workout, I just love my green smoothies. Nice combo! Tweeted, stumbled and pinned!

  3. Just seeing the word workout, makes my body tremble with foreboding, but I’d very happily polish off your green smoothie. I’m sure it would set me up for the day, whether that was going for a long walk or sitting in front of the computer. That Froothie blender is one powerful beast.

  4. Girl! You and I must be on the same wavelength… heck yeah, I’m joining you! that smoothie is perfect, and I seriously need to start working out again. This would be perfect for my after morning work-out, so it’s also breakfast. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. That looks amazing and I’d love to know what it tastes like, the combination sounds like it would give you a real boost.
