Let’s talk green smoothies. More specifically, tropical green smoothies.
One thing I think we’re all looking for when we reach for a green smoothie is to just feel a little bit better, right? And no matter what kind of green smoothie it is– we usually want to feel healthier, lighter and more energetic after drinking it.
That’s what this recipe is all about. This smoothie is light, hydrating, and energizing. It’s also the perfect drink to make after a long, indulgent weekend, vacation, or holiday break. Or to kickstart a brand new year. 🙂
In this latest YouTube video, we’re breaking down how to make a Tropical Detox Green Smoothie.
(By the way, are we buddies on YouTube yet? I’d love to see you there!)
It’s the kind of drink your body is calling for when you’ve been having way too much fun eating out and your body is missing greens and hydration. It will add some energy and major detoxification into your day. And it tastes like a tropical paradise in a glass. 🙂
Tropical Detox Green Smoothie
- 1 cup coconut water
- 1 cup spinach or kale
- 1 lemon juiced
- 1/2 of a cucumber peeled
- 1 knob ginger peeled
- 1 cup frozen pineapple
- 1 cup ice
- Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender.
- Drink immediately.
So, when you want to make a smoothie to feel energized, light, and ready to take on anything- this your new go-to. It’s refreshing, packed with nutrients and provides some major help with detoxification.
I reach for it whenever I’m coming back from a trip and want to kickstart my health. And feel free to swap up the greens in it- spinach is a little milder, but kale works just as well!
