Making this smoothie is simple, all you need is some fresh or frozen pineapple chunks, some leafy greens like spinach or kale, peeled fresh ginger, one peeled lemon, a green apple, and wheatgrass. This flavor combo is very fresh and the ingredients offer wonderful health benefits.

Detox Green Pineapple Smoothie Ingredients

Pineapple adds sweet flavor to this smoothie but also amazing health benefits-  the fruit contains bromelian, a rich source of enzymes that benefit digestion and in reducing inflammation.

Ginger is known for its ability to soothe an upset stomach, ease nausea and aiding in digestion, plus it adds amazing flavor.

Lemon adds a nice distinctive sourness to this smoothie that balances out the sweet pineapple. The citrus is a staple in many detox folk remedies and is a great source of vitamin C, an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent.

Apple adds a little sweet and sour tartness to this smoothie, I use granny smith apple but you can substitute with different apples that you like.

Kale or Spinach are a base of this smoothie because we all need more leafy greens in our life!

Wheatgrass is more commonly used in juicing but I also like to add fresh wheatgrass to my smoothies. wheatgrass is believed to help cleanse the lymph system, restore balance, and help remove toxic metals from your cells. It is optional for this recipe, so if you have difficulty finding fresh wheatgrass simply leave out.

Water, coconut water and ice can also be added to this smoothie to get your desired consistency!

How to Make Detox Green Pineapple Smoothie

Making this smoothie is very simple. Add the pineapple chunks, peeled ginger, cut apple, kale or spinach, wheatgrass and lemon to your high-power blender, I use a vitamix. Blend and add up to 1/2 cup of water or coconut water until it reaches a consistency that allows it to blend thoroughly.

Next, add up to a cup of ice until the smoothie is your desired consistency.

Pour between two large glasses or four small glasses and enjoy!
