Green Detox Smoothie

I find this smoothie makes for the perfect fresh start after a weekend full of not so many healthy choices. Case in point the Doritos Locos Tacos at Taco Bell. Don't judge people, they were amazing. I mean a Dorito taco shell, hello!? Anyway, back to the subject at hand. Leafy greens such as spinach are rich in chlorophyll, which is believed to purify the blood and cleanse the body. This is one of the hubster's favorite smoothies and he is anti-veggie so that says a lot! Here's what I used, but you can switch it up any way you would like:

one healthy handful of baby spinach

a cup of fresh pineapple

1 tablespoon of ground flaxseeds

1 tablespoon of chia seeds

1 teaspoon of freshly grated ginger

11.4oz of coconut water
Blend all ingredients with a few ice cubes and that's that.

The result is a super refreshing smoothie that will probably wake you up better than a cup of coffee.


  1. I'm going to try this out this week! :)


  2. Can't go past a good smoothie and that one looks delicious

  3. I must try this! Do you have any suggestions to other smoothies just to stay fit and healthy? Maybe after a nice jog in the morning?
