Simple Detox Green Smoothie

Have you been wanting to start making green smoothies to add more GOOD FOOD to your diet?

Here is a simple recipe for a starter smoothie that includes lots of vegetables that have detoxifying properties.

What you will need is a high-speed blender, such as a Vitamix. While you can use a regular kitchen blender, the consistency will not be as smooth and palatable as with a high-speed blender. And often - especially when dealing with finicky eaters and children - it is more the consistency (and not the taste) of the smoothie that determines success!

Start with this base recipe, then venture into adding more and different kinds of vegetables.


Yields: 4 servings


3-4 stalks organic celery

2 organic cucumbers

2-3 stalks organic kale

1 cup organic spinach (fresh or frozen)

1 whole organic lemon (can be frozen)

1 organic apple

1 organic pear

1 organic carrot

1/2 bunch organic parsley

1/2 bunch organic cilantro

1 avocado

Optional add-ins: chia seeds, hemp seeds, 1-2 Tablespoons melted virgin coconut oil

Filtered water to fill up to 1/3rd of blender


1) Wash and chop all ingredients

2) Add to high speed blender and blend on high until consistency is smooth

3) Taste and adjust: add another lemon or an orange if too "green" or a 1/2 banana to sweeten.

To make a RED detox smoothie:

Add 1-2 raw or cooked beets and 1/2 -1 cup frozen berries


Stay happy and healthy,
