Cleansing Green Smoothie

sometimes you just want a detox. 

from. everything.


Here is a smoothie that you can make in a juicer or blender.  It is actually more like a juice than a smoothie, but you get the idea.  

The recipe that this is based off of uses Kale, but I usually only have spinach, so I use a handful of spinach leaves. 

These ingredients will rid your body of all those toxins…


Ahhhh. feels good.

Cleansing Green Smoothie

  • 1 organic apple, cored and cut up. (leave the skin on for maximum fiber)
  • juice of 1 lemon, or 1-2 tbsp of lemon juice
  • 1 cup fresh kale or spinach
  • 1 stalk of celery, chopped OR 1/3 cup peeled cucumber
  • 1/3 cup fresh flat leaf parsley or cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • ¼ tsp. ground cinnnamon
  • 1 cup chilled water or unsweetened almond milk


- In a blender or magic bullet, add the apple, spinach, celery, lemon joice and blend until smooth.  Add the rest of the ingredients.

- This recipe makes 1 serving, but if you don’t drink it all, store in the fridge for up to a day. 

- I put what is left in the mason jar (naturally) with a lid and stick it in the fridge. Then I just shake it up before I drink it.

This is basically like a juice and it is best served over ice.

go green!
