Detox Island Green Smoothie Recipe
To make the Detox Island Green Smoothie, you will need a few simple ingredients and a blender. Here is the recipe:
- 1 cup spinach
- 1 cup kale
- 1 cup frozen mango chunks
- 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks
- 1 banana
- 1 cup coconut water
Alternatives to the ingredients mentioned above:
- Spinach: If baby spinach is not at your immediate disposal, you can use thesame amount of kale. Frozen spinach cubes will also work.
- Coconut water: Incase this is not available, you can use regular water, orange juice, or plant-based milk such as almond milk, soy milk, or coconut milk
- Frozen fruits: You can use any frozen fruits you like here.
- Banana: You can use doubled amount of frozen mango if banana is not readily available.
Other ingredients you can use in place of original ones and still gets your desired detox island green smoothie taste
- Tropical fruit: The original Detox Island Green smoothie recipe calls for mango, pineapple, and banana. You can substitute any of these fruits for other tropical fruits, such as papaya or guava. If you don’t like sweet smoothies, swap the banana for an avocado. Frozen fruit gives a nice thick icy consistency without having to freezing the smoothie again, I prefer it this way and also hope you will equally like it. You can buy already cubed and frozen tropical fruit or buy fresh and cut and freeze it yourself.
- Spinach and kale: All the fruit will hide any green flavor. Spinach particularly is a very mild leafy green. Kale is a little bit more assertive, you can use baby kale or substitute it for more spinach if you are not conversant with green smoothie.
- Coconut milk: while you can use any plant milk in this recipe, coconut milk gives the green smoothie that authentically tropical flavor. It also makes the smoothie rich and creamy. Coconut milk from the carton is my favorite but that doesn’t mean you should also use it if you are not at home with it. You can use canned light coconut milk/coconut water. Worthy of note is that at Tropical Smoothie Café, they use plain water and ice to make the Detox Island Green smoothie.
- Add the spinach, kale, frozen mango chunks, frozen pineapple chunks, and banana to a blender.
- Pour in the coconut water.
- Blend until smooth and creamy.
- Pour into a glass and enjoy!
This recipe makes one large serving or two smaller servings.
