When to drink your detox smoothie?
Whenever I feel exhausted dehydrated and heavy, I tend to enjoy a fresh detox smoothie.
Fruit smoothies can be enjoyed the whole day but I think they have a better effect on the body in the morning or early afternoon hours.

My Detox Smoothie Fruit Choice
I think some fruits are better than others in smoothies. Sometimes I would even go so far to combine certain fruits together and not with another fruit because they taste better that way combined.
My fruit choice for this detox smoothie is simple.
For one detox smoothie, I pick one fresh and ripe apple, grapefruit, and Kiwi.
Because apple grapefruit and kiwi taste great together and because each fruit is known to help the human body to detoxify.
Apples are known to bring us joy and a good dose of nutritious value. The fruit is stuffed with fibers, vitamins, and pectins. Pectin feeds the healthy good bacteria in your guts.
Grapefruit gets your metabolism running and may prevent kidney stones by flushing out excess calcium in your kidneys. The higher amounts of Vitamin C in the fruit keep your liver in the best shape by getting rid of the toxins in your liver.
Besides, grapefruits are my favorite fruits because they hydrate my body instantly. I feel the difference every time!
Kiwi is known to contain more Vitamin C than most fruits too. It acts as a liver cleanse, just like the grapefruit but kiwis also promote a regular bowel movement.
Your healthy fruit smoothie is completely sugar free if you use good quality fruits which are a bit sweeter in nature. For example, red apples are sweeter than green apples. Kiwis tend to be on the sweeter side too.
What other fruit can you add to this detox smoothie?
While I think my detox smoothie is perfect as it is, I can still give you some ideas on what fruits you can add to your smoothie.
However, keep in mind adding these fruits will change the taste. I would not recommend switching the apple, grapefruit or kiwi in this smoothie recipe.
Feel free to add the following fruits to your smoothie. It will turn your healthy smoothie not only into a detox beverage but also into a nutritious smoothie. As you can see tropical fruits tend to be a popular choice.
- Soursop – Very Rich in Vitamin C (antioxidants to prevent bad cancer growth)
- frozen Coconut Water instead of regular water ice cubes
I have compiled a list of lesser-known tropical fruits. The list might come handy for fruits you have not encountered yet during your travels or when something new hits your grocery supermarket.
Super Energy Detox Smoothie
- 1 Apple *see Notes
- 1 Grapefruit
- 1 Kiwi
- ice cubes or even better-shaved ice.
- Wash your apples well but do not peel your apples. Apple skin is stuffed with important nutrients and you don't want to throw this away. Quarter your apple and cut out the seed core.
- The thick grapefruit skin needs to be cut off. Start with the ends and continue to remove the remaining grapefruit skin, including the white parts. Take the grapefruit apart into bigger chunks.
- Peel the Kiwi fruit with a simple small fruit knife and cut into half.
- Place all the fruits into a blender smoothie jar with the ice. Blend the fruits into your detox smoothie. Make sure there are no bits left.
- Enjoy cold in a glass instantly. I suggest you drink it all in one go.
- I like a red sweet apple variety because we don't add sugar to this smoothie
