Detox Spinach Green Smoothie

Start spring cleaning with a delicious Detox Spinach Green Smoothie.

Detox Spinach Green Smoothie

Do you ever feel stuck? Like, I am currently in such a creative block. I haven’t been making new recipes regularly, as I have been in the past weeks, very few new material, and even writing seems like a chore.

I guess it happens to all of us, sometimes. Ideas and to-do lists, that I have. It’s the execution part that is severely lacking at the moment.

Combine that with the recent re-apparition of my dairy allergy and I guess a detox diet is just what I need right now.

Detox Spinach Green Smoothie

I guess it happens to all of us, the need to take a break, make a cleanse, disconnect. And when your job is sitting behind a computer all day long, writing a blog in the evening is sometimes not a top priority.

But this, too, shall pass, and coffee in the sunshine and delicious smoothies like this Detox Spinach Green Smoothie will surely help.

And this smoothie is really easy to make, too, and very healthy! And don’t worry if you do not particularly like spinach – you cannot even taste it in this smoothie!

So what do you say, give it a try? 🙂

      2. how much water should you use ?

        1. Kristina says: Reply

          Depending on how thick you like your smoothie to be! We usually use 1/2 cup to 1 cup.

  2. QUEEN 51 says: Reply

    My husband also loves this smoothie and he don’t like spinach. But he loves it he said you can’t even taste the spinach. So thanks .

    1. Kristina says: Reply

      Hi again Queen 51! So happy to hear that! Must confess, this smoothie was developed for just such husbands, that do not like spinach. I have one at home. He hates spinach, but loves this smoothie! 🙂

    Great smoothie taste great

    1. So I just made this smoothie literally seconds ago. Just started going back to the gym and was googling spinach smoothies and this was the first one to pop up. It didn’t specify which type of Apple so I got my fave granny Smith apples. Full of flavor and simple. Thanks!

          Hey can I replace the banana with avocado instead

          1. Kristina says:

            Thanks for your question, Briana! We have not tried replacing the banana with avocado in this recipe, but we do have a recipe using pineapple instead of banana here:

    I just made this, I didn’t have apple, but put some pineapple, omg delicious!!!

    1. Kristina says: Reply

      Hello Diana, thanks for stopping by! What a great idea replacing apples with pineapple! So glad you like it 🙂

        Tried this today so delicious and refreshing!

        1. It’s one of our favorites 🙂

  5. Ronetta says: Reply

    I am a first-time smoothie maker, and I must say this is the most delicious smoothie I have ever made on my own. I got it right on the first try and I think this will be a consistent drink me.

    1. Kristina says: Reply

      Hi Ronetta, we are so happy you like this recipe! We have plenty more delicious smoothie recipes on our blog as well!

    How can I make this carb friendly? I’m a type 1 Diabetic pump therapy. This recipe made my blood sugar level very high.

    1. Kristina says: Reply

      Hi Tracy, thanks for stopping by! So sorry to hear you had troubles. I would like to point out, that we are not dietitians and you should always consult your doctor for the right advice if you have restrictions. This recipe does call for fruit high in carbs, so perhaps try switching to fruit or veggies that are low carb, like raspberries or strawberries. Mind you, this will give you a different end meal than the one pictured. Hope this helps!

    2. Terri says: Reply

      I am t1d also! Try one banana instead of two and avocado would slow down how quickly it is absorbed. Be sure to bolts 15 minutes prior to drinking. Terri

  7. Nice recipe. But what can I use instead of spinach as I don’t like it? I would love to try this recipe. Keep sharing.

    1. Kristina says: Reply

      Thanks for stopping by! Well, you can try with kale instead of spinach, but if leafy greens is a problem, I’d say just leave it out and enjoy a fruity smoothie instead! But this smoothie is designed so that you can drink it even if you don’t like spinach – I promise, you can’t taste it at all!

  8. Sugey says: Reply

    It’s my first time making this and I hope it helps me lower my fat!

    1. Make sure you get less calories in than you spend an you should be going in the right direction 🙂 Let us know how you like it.

    Hi. When is the right time to drink this? Can I have this at lunchtime or dinner?

    1. Kristina says: Reply

      Hi Lyne. You can enjoy this smoothie at any time of the day, but we do recommend drinking it in the morning hours, as it will help you start your day, satisfy any sweet cravings and fill you with naturally-occurring vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

    just read your recipe, its super simple with less ingredients but healthy ones. being in india, its hard to get almond or soy milk and other ingredients. i will definitely try this smoothie and give you a review. thank you.

    1. Glad to hear that, let us know how it goes!

  13. Rhonda says: Reply

    Oh my gosh. This is so delicious. You cannot taste the spinach. This will be my breakfast smoothie from now on.

    1. Kristina says: Reply

      Thank you for your feedback, Rhonda! We are so glad you like this recipe 🙂

  14. Katie says: Reply

    Can you make this the night before?

    1. Hello Katie, I think it should be fine, just make sure you put it in an airtight container and store it in your refrigerator. It will probably change color a bit due to the oxidation though.

      If at all possible I’d still recommend you make it in the morning. It’s so fast to make and it tastes the best right after it’s made.

      1. Diana M says: Reply

        What blender is used in the video?

        1. Kristina says: Reply

          Hi Diana, thanks for your question. We have a food processor by Bosch, model MCM64060, such as you can see on the link. I don’t know if it’s available in your country.
          (btw, not sponsored, we just love the food processor and use it all the time!)

    My son and I love it! Thank you!

  18. Katie says: Reply

    I have made this smoothie multiple times, but have found that I only drink about half of it because of the foam texture. Is there anything that can be added or changed that will reduce the amount of foam?

    1. Kristina says: Reply

      Hello Katie, thanks for your question. We have never had problems with that, but on the top of my head, the only thing I can think of is perhaps you could try running the smoothie through a fine strainer. This will make it smoother and may help reduce any excess foam.

  19. Kate says: Reply

    This is a great smoothie – keeps well in the fridge if made the night before (just add some fresh water and give a shake). I’ve also added kiwis occasionally and it works well. I have this as a mid morning snack and think it helps with my headaches.

    1. Kristina says: Reply

      Hello, Kate, and thanks for your feedback! We are so happy this smoothie helps you and you like it

    I am low in iron would you recommed this as a supplement?

    1. Kristina says: Reply

      Hello, Ella. Thanks for your question. If you have a medical condition (iron deficiency) we recommend seeing your doctor who will advise you on the proper supplements for optimal health.

  21. Alesha says: Reply

    Loved it! Added a few things to it to make it more my personal taste. Love how versatile it is!

      Thanks, Alesha for your lovely feedback! 🙂

  22. Heather J says: Reply

    I usually make a smoothie with flax seed in the morning. I want to mix it up and this one sounds great. Can I add flax seed to it or is that too much

    1. Kristina says: Reply

      Hello Heather, yes you can absolutely add flax seeds in the smoothie!

      1. Pramila says: Reply

        Kristina, will you add raw flaxseeds or dry roasted falx seeds to the smoothy?

        1. Kristina says: Reply

          Hello Pramila, there are no flaxseeds, raw or roasted, in this recipe! But if you’d like to add them, I’d use raw.

  23. Lyndi says: Reply

    This smoothie is magical!! I am allergic to pineapple, and finding a tasty green smoothie without pineapple is harder than you’d think! I will definitely be adding this to the snack/breakfast rotation. I did only 1 banana and 2 cups of spinach to up the greens and lower the carbs/sugar, and added a few ice cubes to make it cold – so tangy and refreshing! Thank you for sharing this recipe! 🙂

    1. Kristina says: Reply

      Thanks for your feedback, we’re so happy you like it 🙂

  24. Kathleen says: Reply

    I’m new to making my own smoothies. Can you give me an idea of how much water to add? Thanks!

    1. Kristina says: Reply

      Hello Kathleen, I usually add about 1 cup of water and blend. Then I check how thick the smoothie is. If it’s too thick to drink, I’ll add another 1/3 cup or more. I would suggest starting with adding 1 cup, and see from there if the smoothie thickness is to your liking!

    2. petra says: Reply

      Wonderful recipe! I peeled lemon and cut in chunks and added that instead of just a juice. I am so happy there is no milk element here, and it boosted our mood instantly. My hubby loves it – we saw this can help belly fat to start checking out, so I am so happy it tastes yummy. The best: 1 apple 1 banana and 1 lemon serves us both as that magic bullet of mine barely fits 1/2 of these.

  25. Michelle says: Reply

    Is this smoothie meant to loose weight, or just detox? Thanks

    1. Kristina says: Reply

      Thanks for your question, Michelle. This smoothie is not meant to be used to lose weight and we do recommend you seek medical advice if you plan on dieting for the purpose of losing weight. This smoothie adds greens to your diet and can be enjoyed as a breakfast or morning snack, along with a healthy meal plan throughout your day.

  26. Daisy says: Reply

    Do you drink this as a meal in he morning or do you drink it through the day? How many times a week can you drink this smoothie?

    1. Kristina says: Reply

      We usually have it as a meal or snack in the morning. You can have one every day, but have it instead of a meal – like breakfast or snack.

  27. Kyle says: Reply

    Hi, love this recipe thank you very much!

    But as its only me drinking it, can I have a glass in the morning and store the rest in the fridge for the next morning?

    Thank you 🙂 xx

    1. Kristina says: Reply

      Thanks for your question! You could store it in the fridge, but we do recommend making it fresh and drinking it ASAP, so maybe try making half the portion.

    Is this smoothie good for diabetics?

    1. Kristina says: Reply

      Hello Bobbi, thanks for your question. Sadly we do not know this information, as we have no experience with food for diabetics and we are not doctors. Keep in mind, this smoothie has sweet fruit in, like banana and apple which will influence blood sugar. Please, consult your doctor about this, to be safe.

  29. Vivek Singh says: Reply

    Can I drink this daily?

    1. Kristina says: Reply

      You can drink this smoothie daily as your daily fruit & veggie intake. Just remember the recipe yields 2 servings.

  30. Anita says: Reply

    Very good love this recipe.

  31. Can you use frozen spinach? I always have a bag in my freezer.

    1. Yes you can! We often use frozen fruit / vegetables in our smoothies, especially bananas.

  32. Sarita says: Reply

    This is the best smoothie, I love it so much, thanks for sharing this recipe

  33. UGh so helpful. Thanks for the tips! Love your post, advice, and your style too!

  34. Lauren says: Reply

    Do I have to take the skin off the apple? Or can I just chop up the apple with the skin on and put it in the blender?

    1. Kristina says: Reply

      The recipe says “peel banana and apple” so we do peel the apples.

      But, if you have a powerful blender, you can keep the skin on the apples, especially if the skin is crisp and not whitered.
