This simple green detox smoothie is made with banana, pineapple, apple, spinach, and coconut water. It’s the perfect healthy smoothie for when your body needs a reset!
I have never done a full on cleanse or detox, but I do love resetting my body with healthy foods after I have been traveling, after over indulging during the holidays, or if I feel a sickness coming on. Fueling your body with clean, healthy ingredients is always a good idea.
This Detox Smoothie is healthy in a glass and always hits the spot! It is light, clean, and made with only fruits and vegetables. I love it and my body loves it!
This smoothie recipe comes from my friend Catherine’s new cookbook, Smoothie Project. Catherine has been inspiring our family to drink smoothies and to eat healthy for years so I am thrilled to have all of her wonderful smoothie recipes in one book!
The Smoothie Project has almost 100 smoothie recipes to choose from and my boys have already bookmarked a ton to try! There is even a decadent smoothie chapter that we have been using for dessert nights! There are so many tips and suggestions on how to customize your smoothies. Catherine thought of everything!
Oh, and the photos are GORGEOUS! Colin Price, who shot my cookbook, photographed Smoothie Project and every page is stunning! The photos will make you want to get out your blender ASAP to start making smoothies!
Detox Smoothie Ingredients
You only need five ingredients to make this healthy Detox Smoothie. And don’t worry, the ingredients are basic! You might have them all in your kitchen right now! To make this smoothie, you will need:
- Coconut water or regular water (I like to use coconut water for the boost of potassium, but regular water is fine)
That is it! It’s a very cleansing smoothie! If you want to add bee pollen, chia seeds, hemp seeds, flax seeds, protein powder, collagen peptides, etc. you certainly can! I love smoothies because you can always mix things up and customize the ingredients to what you like and to what your body needs.
If you are looking for a good protein powder, I love Clean Simple Eats protein powder. I love the vegan protein powder too!
How to Make Detox Smoothie
I recommend using a high-powered blender to make this smoothie and all smoothies. I love the new KitchenAid K400 Blender. It is super powerful and a great price (under $200) for such a powerful blender.
If you don’t have a super powerful blender, that is ok. Just make sure you peel the apple before adding it to the blender. If you have a good blender, no need to peel the apple. The skin will blend right in and the skin adds nutrients and fiber.
To make the Detox Smoothie:
- Combine all of the ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth.
- Pour the smoothie into glasses and serve immediately.
We like to drink our smoothies with either glass straws or stainless steel straws! We was and use over and over!
You can enjoy this healthy smoothie anytime of the day. I like to start my morning with a green Detox smoothie, but it is also great after a workout, for a snack, or even for a meal when your body just needs something GOOD! You can drink this detox smoothie whenever you are feeling like you need a reset!

This looks amazing! I totally need to try this today after all the junk we’ve consumed the last couple weeks!
Hi. I’m allergic to bananas. Could you suggest a healthy alternative to use? Would plain Greek yogurt work? Thanks!
Try frozen cauliflower. I promise you can’t taste it and it will make the smoothie creamy like a banana. Greek yogurt would be good too!
Wanted to post because I made this yesterday (I doubled the recipe and froze some!) and as a skeptic – you CANNOT taste the spinach. The flavor of the smoothie is so refreshing and I felt so good knowing I was getting greens in at the start of my day. I didn’t have any frozen fruit (I did all fresh) so I added a few ice cubes to blend up and help make it colder. Thanks for sharing – I’ll be making this at least once a week!
I am so glad you loved the smoothie! Thanks for letting me know! It is so refreshing!
I just made this smoothie for the second time and it’s definitely the best green smoothie I’ve ever had! I’ll be making it again and again 🙂
I am so glad you like the smoothie! Thanks for letting us know!
Hi, I am new here, but this looks so interesting. I am laden with cholesterol – the inheriting type- so I am really careful that all the food I eat is cholesterol-free. can you help? I love the ingredients, of this smoothie but would love to know the Nutrition Facts
This is simple and Amazing. Gonna try it right away.
Thanks for the recepie.
Whole family enjoyed it, our new fav smoothie!! Thank you
I’m drinking this smoothie as I type and I love it, the taste is perfect!
Will this smoothie help me lose a few pounds?
Any suggestions to replace the pineapple with – it does not agree with me or my daughter but would love to try this one. Thanks.
Made this yesterday for a sick husband and two young kids (4 and 2) they all LOVED it! I added some chia seeds and a sprinkle of unsweetened coconut on top to compensate for not having coconut milk. It was delicious and will be in our weekly rotation!
I love this smoothie! I follow the recipe exactly and add collagen peptides, it is such a light and refreshing, yet satisfying, way to start the day!
So glad you loved the smoothie!
That has 30grms of sugareven if it is friut sugar
I just loved your blog and thanks for publishing this about the detox smoothie. I am really happy to come across this exceptionally well written content. Thanks for sharing and look for more in future!! Keep doing this inspirational work and share with us.
Good morning; is it good to have a detox smoothie every morning or should I have it every other morning?
You can drink it every day if you want!
Thanks for the recipe. This is worth a try. I tried a detox smoothie from iahas.com and it was very good and effective. But this one looks a little unique, and I would love to give it a try.
