Kale Pineapple Detox Smoothie

I’ve been all about re-setting my eating habits this January and incorporating even more whole food that are nutrient dense into my diet.  It’s easy to fall into rut over the holidays, but comforting to bring to back to basics in the New Year.  Green smoothies like my Kale Pineapple Detox Smoothie are the perfect place to start.

In fact this Green Smoothie Detox recipe with ginger will knock your socks off!  Whether you are looking for the ultimate healthy smoothie to add vitamins to your routine or something for detox or weightloss this delightful smoothie is perfect.

Detox Green Smoothie Ingredients:

The ingredients in this Detox Green Smoothie are simple, but all there for a purpose.  The ingredient list is perfect for wanting to look and feel your best!

The ginger and cinnamon may sound unusual, but they both add great flavor and nutrients.  Here’s your simple ingredient list.

  • Kale: If you need a vitamin boost after an indulging weekend or week, kale is the ideal place to start.  A handful of kale gives you a mega-boost of vitamins that you can’t beat.  It’s the ultimate superfood.
  • Frozen Pineapple: Pineapple is full of vitamin C to boost your immune system during a rough time.  Use frozen fruit so you will not have to water down your smoothie with ice.
  • Frozen Banana: Banana has potassium which is great for sore muscles.
  • Almond Milk: Use any non-dairy milk you like but low calorie almond milk is always a great choice.
  • Ginger: Fresh ginger gives this smoothie a bit of spice, but it adds lot’s of detox qualities! It both sooths the stomach and is anti-inflammatory.
  • Cinnamon: A bit of cinnamon adds some anti-inflammatory qualities to the smoothie.

This combination of flavors is not only good for you but tastes amazing too!  It’s remarkable how the sweet frozen fruit completely hides the flavor of the kale.  You’d never know this was good for you!

How to Make A Detox Island Green Smoothie:

You’ll need a good blender to make this smoothie!  This one HERE is my personal favorite and it’s NOT crazy expensive. <— Amazon Affiliate Link

  1. Pull out all your ingredients.
  2. Put them in your blender and mix until smooth.
  3. Serve in a mason jar!

I love this package of mason jars with adorable straws.

Kale Pineapple Detox Smoothie Variations & Questions

  • You can substitute other tropical frozen fruits for a similar flavor.  Mango is another great choice.
  • Mango can also be substituted for the banana if you are looking for a banana-free detox smoothie
  • Spinach can be subbed for the kale.
  • You can use any dairy-free milk to keep this smoothie light in calories.  Coconut milk is also delicious.

What does pineapple and ginger do to the body?

This dreamy combination of ingredients helps prevent cold and flus because it’s filled with vitamins.  The ginger also helps with nausea, stomach aches and even heart burn.


This smoothie is simple and delicious!  You’ll be surprised at how delicious and refreshing it tastes even with all of the detox health benefits.

    My small town grocery store didn’t have kale or frozen pineapple. I subbed Spinach and frozen peaches. Think that will still be okay?

      Oh man! That’s rough! I don’t think it will be the same, but I think it will still be good. 🙂

    Hi..would this work with coconut milk or coconut water? I love the almond milk, I made this today and it was yum, it’s just that hubby can’t have almond milk.

    Every time I have tried to make a green smoothie it has never turned out. I must never put the right ingredients in. I will have to try this one.

    Looks yummy, maybe after the storm and the cold winter months, I will get back on track and need something like this to push me in the right direction. Be safe through the storm:o)

      Hope you are staying safe today too! I love starting the day off with a veggie packed smoothie.

    I am all about resetting sone healthy habits! I don’t drink smoothies too often in the winter, but this one sounds great! I think it would really help to fend off a cold or just the winter blahs!

    • JulieWunder January 22, 2016 at 2:25 pm - Reply

      Yes! For some reason the cold doesn’t bother me, I just imagine all the nutrients keeping me healthy 🙂

    I have been having a green smoothie every day for the past year and I feel SO much better for it. During the winter months, I always add ginger to them too and I hardly ever get ill, which I think it because of the ginger.

    • JulieWunder January 22, 2016 at 2:18 pm - Reply

      There is some real proof behind eating super foods! I swear by them!

  24. Shelley Marcy January 21, 2016 at 7:48 am - Reply

    Am I the only one who gets super crampy when I eat/drink kale? Does the ginger help with that? I love kale and could eat warm kale salads all day long, but really pay the price afterward.

    • JulieWunder January 22, 2016 at 2:15 pm - Reply

      Oh no! I don’t have that problem– but my stomach is generally like steel 🙂 Maybe spinach or another green is better for you? You could easily sub that!

    You know that I”m not a huge smoothie person (I want to EAT) but I just agreed to try out a smoothie company before my colonoscopy next month. I figured it would be a great way to ease the transition….

    • JulieWunder January 22, 2016 at 2:14 pm - Reply

      I like it along side something small to eat! I’m curious to hear how you like the company!

  26. Jenny January 21, 2016 at 6:53 am - Reply

    Yum, Julie! This sounds awesome! Pineapple also has bromelain, which I’ve been reading more about lately–super anti-inflammatory! Have fun playing in the SNOW!

    • JulieWunder January 22, 2016 at 2:13 pm - Reply

      Ahhh!! Even more of a reason to eat Pineapple! Not that I needed one :-)))) Hope you are staying warm.

    Looks good .
    Wunder how this weekend winter storm will be for us.
    We’ll see.
