  • 2 cups cold water
  • 1 banana cut into chunks
  • 1 orange peeled and separated into segments
  • ½ apple your favorite variety, peeled, cored, and cut into chunks
  • ½ lemon peeled and separated into segments
  • ½- inch piece of fresh ginger peeled and minced
  • 2 cups baby spinach


  1. Add all ingredients to a blender and puree until smooth and completely combined.
  2. Drink all at once, or separate into two servings. The smoothie can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one day. When it comes out of the fridge, it will have thickened, so give it a brisk stir (or use a small whisk) and enjoy!
