This green smoothie detox recipe with apple, spinach, avocado, ginger, and coconut water is incredible. Boost the smoothie with flax oil, wheatgrass, and cayenne pepper to dial up the cleanse karma.

This detox smoothie recipe comes from the Lookbook Cookbook by Jessica Milan.

Jessica is a young model turned photographer, and a cook. After combining her talents to create the Lookbook Cookbook site featuring desserts, she has published her first book dedicated to fashion-loving foodies with each recipe accompanied by a photo of one of her young models enjoying the food.

The cookbook includes recipes for smoothies and shakes, brunch recipes, appetizers and snacks, and sweet treats. All of the recipes are very simple, contain only a handful of ingredients, and are all gluten-free and vegan, making this book a great option for young hipsters, teenagers, college students, busy people, and novice cooks to get healthy.

Some of my favorite recipes include: Orange Mango Lassi, Drink Your Greens Smoothie, Quinoa Yam Patties, Sweet Chili Soba Noodles, Tahini Rice Bowl, Summer Rolls, Zucchini Bruschetta, Cauliflower “Couscous”, Carrot Ginger Soup, Avocado Caesar, Freezer Fudge, Banana Pops, Pecan Pie Balls, Cashew Cookie Dough, and The Detoxer Green Smoothie.

This is a great introductory green smoothie detox.

It’s sweet and loaded with chlorophyll and nutrients. Jessica says, “All things nice with a little bit of spice!” I’ve added some optional boosters like wheatgrass powder, cayenne pepper, and flax oil if you want to ramp up nutrition and flavor. Either way, this smoothie is delicious.

Notes:

*Probiotic Powder – I add 1/2 teaspoon of probiotic powder to all smoothies to replenish stores of healthy bacteria for immunity, digestion, detox, and to balance the acidic effects of high-sugar fruits and other sweeteners. The really potent probiotics require refrigeration. If you have capsules, break the shell and release the powder. Unsweetened probiotic-rich liquids like kefirs (water, coconut water, milk varieties) or kombucha make wonderful health-promoting additions to shakes, too.

*Celtic Sea Salt – I add a pinch (or more) of this alkalizing, mineral-rich salt to all smoothies to boost the natural flavor of fruits and veggies; temper the acidity of sweet fruits and sweeteners; stimulate the lymphatic system; replenish electrolytes; aid digestion; and help the body access energy. I do not recommend adding common table salt which is generally heated to extreme temperatures, iodized, bleached, processed, and refined. This salt does not have the same benefits. If you have a health condition that requires you to limit your sodium intake consult your doctor before adding salt to your smoothies.
