Detox Green Smoothie
Nutrient packed ingredients like banana, almond butter, fresh spinach, strawberries and chia seeds. This Detox Green Smoothie is what I drink daily and feel great doing it. A filling and vegan/plant-based breakfast or snack idea.
So here’s a new year, a possibly new diet or a simple detox from the holidays. I’m not a fan of diets, but I do like to really cut back in January to counteract everything I put into my mouth over the holidays.
I call this the detox green smoothie because it has everything you need to jump start your nutrition and get you back on track to better eating.
Every ingredient in this smoothie plays a part in the overall nutrition. Here’s the breakdown:
Banana: This give the smoothie creaminess as well as B vitamins, potassium, magnesium and improve digestion
Almond butter: Not only does this give the smoothie a lovely nutty flavor, you also benefit from the added protein, fiber, good fats, calcium and helps stabilize blood sugar
Frozen mango: Chills the smoothie, adds natural sweetness, helps boost metabolism, improves digestion, clears the skin, as well as Vitamin C and betacarotene.
Strawberries: Loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and help control blood sugar.
Fresh Spinach: So many vitamins (to many to list) protein (yes), and is the best all round vegetable for detox.
Almond Milk: A great dairy replacement and provides fiber and lactose free so it’s easier to digest.
Chia Seeds: As well as added protein, they have fiber to help you feel fuller longer.
Doesn’t all that info want you to make this smoothie everyday? You can add optional additions like match green tea powder, protein or collagen powder or any additional fruit or veggies that you love.

This was delicious. The mango adds great flavor.
Thank you I’m glad you enjoyed it.
Me and my family are a big smoothie fan and can have them anytime of the day! This looks so delicious and healthy!
I wonder if I can add a bit of collagen to this? I need to start making and drinking more green smoothies, looks so refreshing!
This looks filling and delicious! My kind of smoothie 🙂
My daughter is a big smoothie fan, and I know she’s going to want to try this one. She can’t eat spinach though, so maybe kale would be a good substitute.
I saw this on Pinterest and was floored, it’s gorgeous!
I was lacking energy and motivation to do work out. And whenever I did, I’d be sore the next day. As soon I started taking this supplement, I wasn’t nearly as sore or tired the next day, and my recovery time also improved.
Thank you for stopping by. I always feel much better taking this too.
Burrata and heirloom tomatoes…what a fantastic combination!! SO delicious
It’s my favorite way to enjoy heirloom tomatoes. Thank you for visiting.
Since I get plenty of fruits and veggies I think I’ll take your recipe for “Green Juice” and make it without the Aloha. Although for some, I bet it comes in handy. Most of the time I like to eat my meals, but, like you said, in a pinch a smoothie is the perfect thing. Thanks Janette! Pinning.
Thank you KC, don’t forget the protein from the almond butter 🙂
