Detox Smoothie.

My favorite “eat clean” detox smoothie. Rejuvenating, full of vitamins, fruits, protein packed yogurt, and spinach.  It does not taste like vegetables!

I just got back from a girls weekend at the beach!  It was such a blast celebrating my friend Nina’s bachelorette. There were 20 of us in a gorgeous house (that had TWO kitchens!) in Dewey Beach, DE.  Beautiful sunny weather, dancing, cocktails, loud music, and a lot more dancing.

Back to reality today!

Today I’m sharing a smoothie recipe that I make all of the time. It’s my go-to smoothie that I whip up after a sweaty workout or a few days of too much sugar and greasy food.  Packed with summer fruits, yogurt, and a handful of spinach to get my veggies in.

And no, this smoothie does NOT taste like spinach. You can’t taste the green veggie at all.

I call it my detox smoothie.  Nourishing, neutralizing, detoxifying, and antioxidant-packed.  It’s my favorite way to give my body a break from chemicals and preservatives.  And it’s even tastier than it looks, I promise. :)

The recipe is very forgiving. I like to mix and match different fruits that I have on hand like peaches, mangoes, pineapples, and blueberries.  Sometimes I use spinach, sometimes I use kale. Today’s vibrant green smoothie is made from frozen banana, Greek yogurt, almond milk, spinach, peach, pineapple, and a squirt of fresh lime juice.  The frozen banana and Greek yogurt make it infinitely creamy.  The spinach adds nutrients and volume without affecting the taste.  The fruits add flavor and the almond milk makes everything nice and smooth in your blender.

Why I love adding spinach to my smoothies:

Low calorie, nutrient dense, readily available, loaded with flavonoids, heart-healthy, anti-inflammatory, excellent source of Vitamin K, Vitamin A, magnesium, folate, iron, and about 1 million other things.

Peach

Sometimes I like to add fresh peeled ginger (to taste) if I have it on hand. Other times I add 2 Tablespoons of lemon juice and 1 small chopped and peeled cucumber.

Kevin, who thinks drinking a green smoothie is totally weird, LOVES these smoothies.  I usually have to make a second detox smoothie if he’s around. Because he likes to drink all of mine.

And let me repeat myself one more time – NO, this smoothie does not taste like vegetables! It tastes like fruit. Pineapple, peachy, banana, with a zesty kick of lime.  One of these babies will leave you feeling refreshed, give you high energy, and ready to take on the day!

    You are the 2nd friend today who has posted a spinach, banana, pineapple, Greek yogurt smoothie!

    And it’s my #1 fave smoothie combo! I loooove using pineapple/bananas to balance the spinach. And I usually use vanilla almond milk and some Greek yog if I have it. I seriously love this combo, Sally! Gorgeous pics, too!

    And so glad you had a blast on your girls trip!

    I am loving this detox smoothie of yours, Sally! Isn’t it interesting you cannot taste the spinach? With all that fabulous fruit, and lime juice to give it some spark (love lime in everything!), the fruit just shines thru! Gorgeous styling and photography, too. I’m loving that purrrty blue floral saucer! Thanks for sharing! Pinning… xo

    We don’t have fresh spinach here. :( Or we do but it’s hard to find and supposedly non-organic spinach is pretty bad. So. I don’t get it.

    I have to endure the frozen stuff. I hate all veggies so I figured if I’m going to eat them, I might as well go with the most (or one of the most ) nutritious. I really hate frozen spinach. Anyway, your post wasn’t about hating frozen spinach so I’ll move on. ;)

    This sounds super yummy and when I finally have access to decent spinach, I’ll definitely be making this!

    Every time I’m looking for a certain recipe you come up with just what I need Sally! Since I just had my beautiful baby boy AND already lost weight, I wanted to continue this progress with healthy but tasty smoothies. Even ordered a smoothie maker a few days ago. My hubby wanted to join in and kept talking about green smoothies. You’re giving us a great starting off point and I KNOW you won’t disappoint! Thank you Sally! I really can’t wait for your cookbook to come out next year!

      Keyia – first of all, congratulations on your new baby boy! That is so wonderful to hear and I am thrilled for you and your husband. And that’s great to hear that you lost some baby weight – I’ve never had a baby, so I can’t imagine how hard that must be physically and mentally. This smoothie is a great jumping off point – it’s fruity and sweet but has so many good-for-you things packed inside. I hope you and your husband enjoy it!

      Hi Stacy! The consistency of the smoothie is much thicker and creamier with the banana. You could leave it out, but the taste and texture would be much different. You could use a ripe avocado instead though. (not frozen)

    Hi Love your website! I was wondering about the detox smoothie. Do you know the amount of calories?

    I forgot to mention I am trying to find a smoothie that is less than 250 calories. I am hoping this may be one!

      Hi Cheryl – no, I don’t know the calorie count. Feel free to plug the ingredients into an online calculator if you can find one!

    Yum! I just love green smoothies. I feed them to my kids all the time, and I drink them all the time, they are awesome! Just haven’t quite sold my hubby on them yet. I love the lime in yours, I need to try that. And your suggestion of fresh ginger is great, I use it in my mango lassi type smoothies and it is so good :)

      I haven’t had a mango lassi in so long! I have to make one soon. And yes, so good with ginger!

    Sally,

    I am trying to lose about 40 pounds. Can you reccommend some smoothie recipies that will help me? I love smoothies and would drink them in the place of breakfast and lunch if that’s what it will take.

    Thank you,
    Rita

      Hi Rita! I can certainly share the smoothie recipes I enjoy, however I cannot say whether or not they are suitable for any sort of diet plan. You can find my smoothie recipes in the drinks section of my website: http://sallysbakingaddiction.com/category/drinks/

    Sally,

    I have a very old blender that won’t liquify smoothies properly, leaving chunks of apples and other fruit. I’m looking to buy a new one. I was hoping you could let me know what type blender you use or if you know of any reliable blenders on the market right now

      Hi Lydia- I strongly suggest you look into a Nonja blender. The one I have is so inexpensive for its premium quality. Plus, it doubles as a good processor. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B003XU3C7M/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?qid=1380316481&sr=1-2&pi=AC_SX110_SY165

        Thank you for the recommendation Sally :) I intend to buy myself a new one for Christmas! I just found the link to your amazon store though and I have a question. You recommended the the QB900B master prep, but i noticed another one on the page called the “ninja BL660″. I’m tore between the two trying to decide which one would be a better purchase. Is the BL660 a good blender for smoothies as well? do you find yourself using one more than the other?

        • Sallyreplied on December 15th, 2013 at 7:30 pm

          Hey Lydia! I have both blenders. I prefer the cheaper one, actually. The QB900B master prep. It doubles as a handy food processor and is much smaller and can fit easily into my small cabinets. Both are great for smoothies though!

    Sally, I have not commented in eons (or even baked), but I want you to know that you continue to be a ray of sunshine in my life! I invested in a Vitamix last week and I instantly came here to pick something to break it in. I made this recipe, using half spinach and half kale, and it tastes SO GOOD. What an amazing way to up your fruit and veggie intake… I was honestly anxious to have my second one a few hours later. Thank you for the delicious recipe! You are my favorite (and sparkliest and sprinkliest) baker! :) Hugs and blessings to you!

      Thanks Karen. I love reading your comments, even though it’s been awhile. I love this detox smoothie! I haven’t made it in a few months. Thanks for reminding me how good it is. Enjoy your new Vitamix! I just got one too :)

    This is so good!! I make a lot of juices/smoothies with veggie fruit combos and this recipe called my name, but I was a little skeptical about the “detox” aspect. But I have to say this is a really refreshing and energizing drink! I think it’s the lime zest that really gives it the kick. But I do feel great after drinking it and will be putting this recipe in my rotation. Thanks for another great recipe!!

      The lime zest is my favorite part. So glad you enjoy this smoothie recipe Anna!

    Hi Sally-
    I have been in a breakfast rut for a while now- yogurt /fruit or oatmeal are my go tos. Made this today and looks like I am out of my rut!! Delicious!!!! I’m also pregnant and have been struggling to get my veggies in lately so this is great.
    I cannot get over how big it is too. So filling. Thanks for all the great recipes. And good luck in the last few weeks before wedding. Love reading about your journey.

    Thanks!!!

    Sally, this definitely sounds delicious. I am goimg to try it out for my husband and I in the morning. is it possible to make it the night before so it is ready to go for the next morning?
    Thanks

      I don’t suggest the night before; a smoothies’ texture and taste is best fresh. It only takes a few minutes to blend.
