Homemade Detox Smoothie Series | Kissed by Kale Smoothie

Detoxification is this month’s key focus as we kick off summer. Perhaps you are feeling a little sluggish from a long week? Detox smoothies are a tasty and healthy way to reset your body after overindulging from the weekend. Jump start your week with this kale-worthy delight – sure to keep you feeling full yet light and healthy!

What is the Craze?

Kale is the new spinach. It isn’t called a superfood for no reason. Packed with antioxidants, kale is full of vitamins, like: Vitamin A, K, B6, as well as niacin, riboflavin, thiamin, calcium, iron, protein, magnesium, and more. But why is it one of my go-to detox foods? It naturally detoxifies the body and keeps you feeling healthy and full of energy. When consumed, it creates enzymes to help your liver detoxify and cleanse.

Why a Smoothie not Juice?

Smoothies consist of the entire fruit or vegetable – skin and all. In its whole form, it contains all of the fiber. In the blending process, however, the fiber breaks down to a form to digest while still creating a slow, even release of nutrients into the blood stream, avoiding any sugar spikes. Ideal for a morning breakfast or for a mid-day snack, these  homemade detox smoothies pack wholesome goodness to fuel and detox your way to a better, healthier you!


This week’s featured recipe is Kissed by Kale Smoothie! Antioxidant-packed, this smoothie replenishes and helps purge toxins from its various systems. Perk up your morning and kick it off strong with this baby!


  • 1 cup baby kale
  • 1/2 cup apple, sliced in 4 portions
  • 1/2 cup celery, chopped
  • 1 cup coconut water


  1. Blend everything together until you reach a smoothie consistency.  When detoxing organic produce is recommended.


Need an extra boost of nutrition to your smoothie. Try flax, hemp or chia seeds. For chia seeds, soaking it in a little water to make a gel will add a nice smooth consistency.
