A Green Smoothie To Help You Detox Decadently

January Greentox Smoothie

Serves 1


  • 1 tablespoon of almond butter (I adore Dastony’s silky smooth, raw and sprouted almond butter, but any will do. Try to buy organic and sugar-free if you can, or better yet, make your own!)
  • ½ tablespoon of coconut butter (or coconut oil, but the “butter” really adds a coconutty flavor and creamy texture. This is also sometimes more easily found as “coconut manna” – an apt title since I am convinced it does hail from heaven.)
  • ¾ cup of coconut water (or filtered water)
  • ¼ teaspoon of vanilla powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon of ginger powder (or fresh ginger, to taste)
  • ½ teaspoon of Matcha powder (make sure this is a good quality Matcha such as Got Matcha Gotmatcha.com)
  • 1 handful of your favorite greens (kale, romaine, spinach…)
  • ½ teaspoon of spirulina powder
  • ½ small cucumber
  • 1 small apple, cored and chopped
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tablespoon of Goji berries


1. Add date to hot water for a few minutes to soften, then pit and peel.

2. Blend the almond butter with the coconut water, date and vanilla in a high-speed blender, preferably a Vitamix, until it becomes “milk”.

3. Add the goji berries to a small bowl or glass and pour hot water over the top. Chop apple and cucumber. Add all ingredients to the blender with the almond milk. Then blend. You can add more almond milk or liquid as needed — I like a thick shake, but if you prefer more liquid, go for it.

4. Once the Goji berries are plump, add them to a glass or jar. Pour the blend over the goji berries and drink. When you come across the goji berries, rejoice — you’re King / Queen for the day, congratulations! And if you’re not happy about that, the nutritionally-dense goji berries; aka “happy berries” will certainly brighten your mood.
