Apple Mango Bok Choy Smoothie

This apple mango bok choy smoothie from The Blender Girl Smoothies book is a fantastic sweet introduction into using bok choy in smoothies.

How To Use Bok Choy In Smoothies

Include bok choy in your green smoothie rotation as it’s relatively mild in flavor with 1 cup going into most blends all-but unnoticed. In larger amounts it can get bitter. The flavor of baby bok choy is easily masked by sweet fruits like pineapple, mango, banana, apple, pear, citrus, berries, and grapes.

The Health Benefits Of This Smoothie

Baby bok choy is rich in vitamins A and C, folate, calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, phosphorous, manganese, and fiber. It also contains anti-inflammatory agents that boost our immunity and help combat free radical damage. It’s also high in vitamin K to help build the blood.

Mango is also chock-full of antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E, and phytonutrients that combat oxidative damage, enhance digestive, heart, eye, and brain function, and help with glowing skin and hair. The pectin fiber in the apple helps sweep out the colon and offloads toxins in the liver.

So, this apple mango bok choy smoothie from The Blender Girl Smoothies book is a dynamo in the detox department.

  1. Looks way too healthy to taste as good as it does! This is a great summer wake me up. I can’t believe I thought making all these things was too hard not so long ago. Love the website!

    1. Oh, thankyou. I am so glad you are getting into green smoothies! They are so good for you and can taste amazing 🙂

    1. YES! Really green and SOOO delicious!
      Can’t wait to hear what you think 🙂
      Thanks for the lovely shout out on FB today.

  2. Do you have a recipe for meal replacement smoothies? Cleansing recipes? I am trying to lose some weight and love to juice but it’s not satisfying my hunger for very long and I end up eating something quick and unhealthy.

    1. Try the alkaline smoothies under the alkaline category. I love the Alkaline Lime Smoothie. That is good for weight loss. But, different things work for different people, and I don’t recommend drinking the same smoothie every day. Download my app. There are 100 smoothie recipes, and they are categorized under weight loss and other health goals. Enjoy 🙂

    1. It depends on the ingredients. You can plug this recipe into cronometer or edamam to get the nutritional data for this recipe.
