Super-Powered Green Detox Smoothie

While we’re not exactly fans of detoxing in general – we do think giving your body a little extra help dealing with… life… isn’t going to hurt anyone. Especially if the help is as delicious as this smoothie.

It’s like a mouthwatering salad, but in liquid form, and with way less chewing. It’s loaded with enough vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to turn even the most toxic of bodies into a pristine paradise. And with ginger, chia seeds, and coconut water, it’s not just good for you, it’s also good-tasting. So why waste time feeling like a dumpster fire when you could be feeling like a freshly cleaned oven with this delicious and nutritious smoothie? We’re not saying it’ll give you Super-Powers, but… well… maybe it will! Drink up and detox away, my friends.

What’s so good about the ingredients you ask?

  • The spinach or kale provide a good source of Vitamin K, Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Vitamin E.
  • The pineapple contains bromelain an enzyme that help in digestion and reduce bloating.
  • The ginger is a natural anti-inflammatory that can help ease digestion and nausea, while the chia seeds are high in fiber and can help keep you feeling full and satisfied.
  • Green apples contain phytochemicals and antioxidants such as Quercetin, Catechin, and Chlorogenic acid, which have been shown to have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties.
  • Coconut water is a good source of electrolytes, such as potassium, sodium, and magnesium, which help to hydrate the body and maintain fluid balance.
  • Greek yogurt is an excellent source of protein, which is essential for building and repairing tissues in the body, as well as for maintaining muscle mass.
  • The acidity in lime juice can also help to reduce symptoms of indigestion and bloating.
