This refreshing and nutritious green smoothie is perfect for starting your day with a boost of vitamins, minerals, and fiber. It’s also designed to support liver detoxification and overall health.


  • 1 cup fresh spinach leaves
  • 1 cup fresh kale leaves (stems removed)
  • 1 green apple, cored and chopped
  • 1/2 cucumber, chopped
  • 1 small piece of ginger (about 1 inch), peeled and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 cup water (or adjust for desired consistency)


  1. Prepare the Ingredients:
    • Wash the spinach and kale leaves thoroughly.
    • Core and chop the green apple.
    • Chop the cucumber.

    • Add the spinach, kale, green apple, cucumber, and ginger to a blender.
    • Pour in the water.
  3. Blend Until Smooth:
    • Blend the ingredients on high speed until smooth. If the mixture is too thick, add more water a little at a time until you reach your desired consistency.
  4. Add Chia Seeds:
    • Add the chia seeds to the blended mixture.
    • Blend again for a few seconds to incorporate the chia seeds evenly.
  5. Serve:
    • Pour the smoothie into a glass.
    • Let it sit for a few minutes to allow the chia seeds to swell slightly, which will give the smoothie a nice texture.
  6. Enjoy:
    • Drink the smoothie immediately to get the maximum nutritional benefits.


  • Optional Additions: You can add a squeeze of lemon or lime juice for extra freshness and vitamin C.
  • Sweetness: If you prefer a sweeter smoothie, add a half banana or a few slices of pineapple.
