This Detox Island Green Smoothie is a copycat recipe of the fan favorite smoothie from Tropical Smoothie Café. It uses nutrient-dense ingredients like tropical fruits, dark leafy greens, coconut water, and ginger to give you a sweet, delicious smoothie that has loads of health benefits.

Smoothies are such an easy way to add a lot of nutritious ingredients into your day in a way that will make your taste buds do a happy dance.
If you’re not a big fan of green vegetables, this is a great way to incorporate them. The sweetness from the fruits completely covers up the taste of the leafy greens that you won’t even notice they’re there (well, except for the green color).
This Detox Island Green Tropical Smoothie recipe is also so quick to make, especially if you use frozen fruit and pre-minced ginger, which require zero chopping. Plus, this homemade version is a lot more cost effective to make this smoothie at home rather than visiting Tropical Smoothie Cafe each time you’re craving it.
This nutrient-packed beverage is great for your health too. It has a healthy dose of dietary fiber and antioxidants, such as copper and vitamin C, which are great for reducing inflammation and your risk for many chronic diseases.
Another Tropical Smoothie recipe I love is: Triple Berry Oat Tropical Smoothie
I love the simplicity of smoothies and this smoothie recipe is no different!
All you’re going to do is add all of your ingredients into a high-speed blender and blend on high for approximately 30 seconds until smooth.
Then pour into a tall glass and enjoy!
The Detox Island Green smoothie from Tropical Smoothie is a blended mix of mango, pineapple, banana, kale, spinach, coconut water, and ginger.
Yes. This Detox Island Green smoothie is a great source of vitamins, minerals, and fiber which are great for overall health. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that can help with reducing inflammation.
Yes and no. Your body is perfectly capable of detoxifying itself thanks to your liver and kidneys. Detox drinks are largely a marketing ploy. There is not a singular food or drink that can automatically detoxify your body.
Including healthy ingredients and certain foods, in addition to a healthy lifestyle, can help to support your liver and kidneys though, allowing them to function at their highest potential. One example is cruciferous veggies (like the kale added to this smoothie!). Cruciferous vegetables can help to support your body’s natural detoxification pathways, especially for estrogen detoxification.
No, unlike many other smoothie recipes that use ingredients like honey or maple syrup to add sweetness, this smoothie uses natural ingredients and has no added sugar. The sweetness comes from the tropical fruits used in the recipe.
This smoothie is best served immediately but you can store it in the fridge for up to 2 days. Just give it a quick shake or stir before serving.
Yes, freeze all ingredients except for coconut water together in a container or in ice cube trays. On the day you’re going to prepare it, just add the frozen ingredients into a blender and add coconut water prior to blending.
