I am sure you have heard somewhere, on some Instagram page or wellness blog, that starting your day with a healthy breakfast, like this green smoothie, sets the stage for the entire day.

I’m a firm believer that you can always make the choice to be healthier—doesn’t matter breakfast, lunch, or dinner, but this breakfast smoothie makes it easy to start your day loaded with nutrients. I also love this green smoothie as a midday “pick me up” and to cool down after a workout.

I’ve experimented with multiple green smoothie recipes, and this one stuck. So refreshing!  

It also doesn’t have a banana in it—not hating on bananas (at all), but most all healthy smoothie recipes contain a banana, and I wanted to change it up.  This easy smoothie is absolutely delicious and packed with superfoods, making it highly nutritious, detoxing, and healing.  

Green Smoothie: Key Ingredients

  • Frozen mango and hemp seeds make this green smoothie extra creamy.
  • Dates add a bit of natural sweetness.
  • Spirulina is added in for its detoxifying benefits.
  • Flax and hemp are added for omega-3 and omega-6.
  • Cordyceps, also known as edible medicinal mushroom, give an immunity boost.  

Benefits of a Green Breakfast Smoothie

Starting your day with leafy greens and a healthy breakfast does have validity.  You’ll notice shortly after your nutrient-packed smoothie: better focus, less of a desperate need for caffeine, and healthier food cravings throughout the day. Even though you can always make a healthy choice post-breakfast as well, this smoothie detoxes the body, fuels it properly and sets you up for a day filled with nutritious foods.

I’ve personally tested it for taste and results for the past year. My verdict? You have to make this!  

Detox and Chill Green Smoothie Recipe

Serves 2 (Or if you’re like me, one.)  

You will need:

  • Blender

Ingredients:

  • 1 handful spinach
  • 1 heaping cup of frozen mango (frozen pineapple is also a delicious option)

  • 1 tablespoon of flax seed
  • 3 tablespoons of hemp seeds (I like Nutiva)
  • 1 teaspoon spirulina (I like Nutrex Hawaiian)
  • ½ tsp cordyceps (Optional. I like Sun Potion)
  • 2 cups filtered water

Instructions:

  • Place all the ingredients, with the exception of 1 cup of water, in a blender.  
  • Slowly add in the remainder of water while blending to aid in the blending process.
  • Enjoy, detox, and chill (and reap the benefits!).
