Ready for a reset? This Easy Detox Smoothie is filled with ingredients to boost immunity, promote healthy digestion, and keep you hydrated.



For the smoothie:

  • 1 cup frozen pineapple (unsweetened)
  • 1 green apple, cored and chopped
  • 2 handfuls fresh baby spinach or fresh kale
  • 2 inches fresh ginger root, peeled
  • 1 large juicy lime, zested and juiced
  • 1 cup light coconut milk (or sub coconut water or filtered water)
  • 1 cup ice cubes

Optional Boosters

  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
  • 1 teaspoon moringa leaf powder (or matcha powder)
  • 1 teaspoon spirulina
  • fresh mint


  1. Add all ingredients to a high speed blender and blend from low to the highest speed until perfectly smooth.  You may need to use your blender's tamper/plunger to get it started.  
  2. Serve immediately and enjoy with a glass straw.


If you want a sweeter smoothie add 1 soft pitted Medjool date.  I usually find that the sweetness of the apple and pineapple make it sweet enough for me.  Plus the ginger flavor masks the spinach completely.
