Green Detox Smoothie

Green Detox Smoothie is one of my favorite cleansing smoothies. It’s lovely and filling especially when you’re looking for something comforting to battle the cold, grey days.  But don’t worry its still wonderfully green, detoxifying and healthy beyond belief, like goodness in a glass.  Gluten free, Dairy free, and Vegetarian.

Halloween is behind us and Thanksgiving is in front of us.  Good-bye candy bars, hello potatoes and gravy.  Not to mention holiday shopping is creeping up.

Yikes, how is a girl or guy to stay healthy? Kohl’s wants to help us by sharing ways that living a healthy life can be easy when you have the tools you need to succeed with their #MakeYourMove campaign.

One of my tools is my little green detox smoothie, which is full of goodness and nutritionn and the perfect way to clean up your system and reboot.   You will need this in your life as the stress of the holidays comes at you full speed, and eating healthy becomes more difficult.

We all need something that is easy and quick to prepare, and helps set us up to start our day off by feeling fantastic.

Sometimes when the stress is at its worst, its not just about what we are eating, but also a sense of pride and happiness associated with knowing that we are doing what we can do to look and feel our best. I think consciously looking after our bodies really instills an awesome sense of pride and self worth, which everyone needs a little extra of most of the time, especially during the busy holidays.

Thanks to Kohl’s for offering products that not only help us fuel our bodies, but our self worth and pride.  Kohl’s department stores have an entire section dedicated to the ease of blending. Several different shapes, sizes and styles of blenders are for sale as well as blender bottles, and superfood powder packets.  You are sure to find the perfect fit blender for your lifestyle, kitchen size or volume need at Kohl’s.

I used the Ninja BL660 Professional Blender to make my smoothie, which is the perfect size and power for any home cook.    It also comes with single serving blender cup to help you take your smoothie on the go when you are running out the door.

About this recipe: This smoothie is loaded with protein and iron, thanks to the spinach.  Fiber and antioxidants, thanks to the apple. But the real powerhouses are the chia seeds, which are full of healthy fats, and Omega-3’s and good quality honey, which will help stimulate your immune system into action. Then that delicious spice cinnamon helps us fight infections and the common cold.

I hope you enjoy a little bit of green love in the morning to #MakeYourMove to a healthier and happier you!

    I love everything about this smoothie. I need to detox before the holiday begin. I know once the holidays start the baking and goodies will start too. Great recipe and love the color! 🙂

    I usually eat pretty healthy (contrary to all my blog posts on desserts!) Lately, especially since Halloween passed, I have found myself feeling blah. I have cut back on my sugars (not entirely out, but definitely cut back) and I can feel the difference! I have never been a smoothie person but this sounds really good and something I would enjoy!
