  • 1 cup water (or fresh orange or apple juice, or almond milk)
  • 1 cup ice (crushed if possible)
  • 1 large handful of fresh spinach, about 1-2 cups (or mix of kale and spinach)
  • ½ cup cucumber, peeled and sliced
  • ¾ cup strawberries (fresh or frozen both work great); other fruits to try include blueberries, pineapple, banana, and mango


  1. Place all five ingredients in the blender in the order listed. Blend until smooth. Add in more almond milk and/or ice for your desired consistency, and strain if desired. Store whatever you don’t drink in the refrigerator for up to a day.
