I made this but using a whole foods organic juice blend instead of OJ. The juice has banana and stawberry in it. With the fresh banana, cuke and ginger, it turned out really nicely. I haven't tried adding avocado to this, but I think that would be good too.-24 Jul 2018


Dandelion Detox Green Smoothie

Instead of choosing not to eat until summer, how about we start with a detox smoothie to help digest where we are and make some positive steps forward.

Sure there's easy go-to's like kale and spinach to put into a green smoothie, but why not try something different like dandelion greens.

Dandelion greens have a higher amount of calcium and iron than most other greens. On top of that they’re loaded with fiber, vitamins, antioxidants and is said to be a good cancer fighter.

Then there's that detoxing effect that we're after. These greens have been used as a liver tonic and diuretic for years, and adding in fresh cilantro only doubles the detoxification properties.

Dandelion greens can be a little bitter, so I've thrown in some green apples for a little sweetness and another detox bonus since apples have pectin, a soluble fiber to help you remove unwanted waste.

Ginger is an anti-inflammatory addition and great for digestion.

Cucumber and celery increase the vitamin C and can help with unnecessary water retention. The avocado is there to boost the protein level and make you feel a bit more full after drinking it. You don’t want to need another breakfast after drinking this healthy detox smoothie.

So after indulging, try and reset with a healthy dandelion detox green smoothie to start to get your system back on track.

How to make apple pear ginger smoothie

Blend apples, pears, ginger, apple juice and pulverized oats together until you get a smooth creamy texture.

I pulverized the oats first and then added the rest of the ingredients. Make sure to peel and core the apples and pears first.

This recipe yields 1-quart (1 liter) of smoothie. It can serve 4 (1 cup per person) or 2 (2 cups per person).

Even though this apple pear ginger smoothie has oats in it, it is not a protein-rich smoothie so I recommend combining this with other quick breakfast ideas (Banana Roll Ups, Chocolate Banana Toast).

Are smoothies actually good for you?

Yes! Smoothies (especially the homemade ones) supply your body with nutrients of all sorts (vitamins, antioxidants, minerals) and help you stay healthy.

What is the best fruit to put in a smoothie?

I would say it depends. If you want to make a protein-rich smoothie, then bananas, avocados (yes, they are fruits), raspberries (Raspberry Almond Smoothie) are great choices.

You can pair them with Greek yogurt (Mango Kale Smoothie), almonds, oats (like I did in this apple pear ginger smoothie) milk, peanut butter .…

If you like to try new flavors, I highly recommend Spinach Cucumber Smoothie. It’s dairy-free and refreshing or Blueberry Coffee Smoothie.

As you can see, various fruits (even veggies) can be turned into a delicious smoothie. The most important thing to remember is to achieve the right balance when it comes to flavor. For example: spinach is good in a smoothie but if too much is added, you might not enjoy it. Balance it off with the fruits you love.


Creamy Pineapple Cucumber Smoothie

I’ve been taking cucumbers for granted as the boring, flavorless vegetable I occasionally dip my hummus in. That is, until recently when I rediscovered their impressive health benefits.

Go grab a cucumber and let’s put half of it in a smoothie, and the other half on our face, shall we?

This 6-ingredient, 5-minute smoothie was inspired by the wonder food that is cucumber.

Cucumbers are important to add to your diet because they’re 95% water and naturally detoxify your body are high in Vitamins A, B and C and contain phytonutrients that provide anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-cancer effects.

They’re also a secret weapon for nails and hair, thanks to the nutrient silica, which helps them grow strong and shiny.

And because of their cooling and calming effect, they are excellent at calming stressed or sunburned skin and reviving puffy, dark under eyes – simply apply fresh sliced cucumber to soothe the affected area.

So whether you’re consuming cucumber or putting it on your face, the benefits are real, people.

I hope you all love this smoothie! It’s:

Refreshing
Creamy
Tart-sweet
Super healthy
Naturally detoxifying (thanks to fiber!)
Quick
& Delicious

This would be the perfect smoothie to add to your weekly line-up for breakfast or post-workout snacks. Pineapple and banana add citrusy sweetness, coconut milk lends to a creamy base, lime zest and juice offer plenty of bright citrus notes, and cucumber adds a subtle earthy flavor with a slew of health benefits (see above!).

If you try this smoothie, let us know what you think! Leave a comment, rate it, and don’t forget to tag a picture #minimalistbaker on Instagram so we can see what you come up with. Cheers, friends!


20 Healthy Smoothies that are Dairy Free

This collection of healthy dairy free smoothies has something for everyone! These easy smoothies use fruits and vegetables to make delicious drinks for snacks and breakfast without dairy products. Perfect if you are vegan or just want to live a dairy free life.

This post contains affiliate links. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

I love smoothies, but I prefer them without dairy products like yogurt and milk. For me it is just a personal preference, but many people avoid dairy products for a reason. Some, like my son, have a dairy intolerance, and others are vegans who eliminate all animal products. But no matter what the reason it can be a little tricky to make a dairy free smoothie.

Many, many smoothies include yogurt or whey protein powder. This makes sense since these items are rich in protein and help make a smoothie tasty and creamy. But there are ways to make delicious and healthy non dairy smoothies.

I put together this collection of 20 healthy and tasty smoothies that you can make without dairy products. Smoothies are perfect for adding more fruit or vegetables to your day. These smoothies include all kinds of healthy, delicious fruits like mangoes, pineapple, blueberries and apples. They also include fresh vegetables, like kale, carrots, cucumber and avocado. Ok, maybe avocado is a fruit, not a vegetable, but either way – it is delicious in smoothies!


Healthy smoothies - 4 different flavours

Celery is highly alkalizing which can be beneficial in helping to effectively remove salicylates from the body. Researchers have found when the urine pH exceeds an alkaline reading of 7.5, more salicylates are eliminated than reabsorbed, and three times the amount of salicylates are excreted via the urine. This can be effective for helping reduce itchiness caused by food chemicals and calming a flare.

Protein powder - Protein is one of the building blocks of skin tissue and therefore essential in the repair of the skin. Protein contains certain amino acids such as proline, glycine and lysine which is needed for supporting collagen production. If you are vegan or vegetarian and following the Eczema Detox programs, a plain pea or rice protein powder can be helpful to ensure you are receiving enough protein each day.

Mango is high in many vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C and vitamin A, which is needed in the production of collagen. Additionally, the vitamin E, potassium and beta carotene found in mango can be helpful for hydrating and moisturising the skin. Mango contains moderate salicylates and some may find they react, but if your skin tolerates mango this is a fantastic addition to your skin healing diet.

Make these smoothies your own, they have been tested only with the ingredients suggested, however using different dairy-free milk, adding in some chia seeds or a different fruit can be trialled to make this suitable to your needs.

Suitable dairy-free milk for those following the program is rice milk, oat milk, cashew milk and soy milk.

Skin friend AM or PM can be added to these smoothies for an additional nutrient boost, this can change the taste and colour slightly.

If you are already a green smoothie person skip this paragraph. If you're not, why not? I used to drink green smoothies (spinach or kale combined with fruits in an attempt to make the greens palatable) and feel virtuous, not satiated, so I understand the lukewarm feeling towards the green smoothie. But I would like you to try this one, if you've got spinach and banana lying around and feel so inclined.


In Ohio I'd walk down to the farmer's market each Saturday to buy a bag of spinach and make this. It's that good. It's NOT like the other green smoothies I used to drink. I drink it because I enjoy the taste and feel satisfied after a glass. My kids ask me to make this. Our whole family enjoys this smoothie.

I've moved on to my neighbors and my spinach guy in my quest to change the perceptions of the green smoothie. The 5th time I said to someone, "oh it's easy, just throw a banana, a handful of spinach and a big spoonful of peanut butter into a blender" I clued in that maybe this recipe wasn't too simple for the blog.


I never thought I'd share a smoothie recipe, period, but here's my second. Want a terrific idea for (most recently) teachers, or new moms, or anyone recovering from oral surgery who may need an easy nutrition boost? Check out my Make and Take Smoothies post.

I mentioned allergen friendly in the title, and yet this smoothie contains peanut butter and dairy products, two of the big players in the food allergy list. Guess what? THIS SMOOTHIE IS DELICIOUS DAIRY FREE AND/OR PEANUT FREE! Yeah, I'm shouting.

Spinach, banana and ice are the common ingredients, but I've had it swapping cultured vanilla soy milk 'yogurt' and vanilla almond milk for the dairy ingredients and my neighbor liked a dairy and peanut free preparation using sunflower nut butter (she let me borrow her jar for the photo op).


So many brands, so little--as in zero--sponsorship. This is what I bought. Or my neighbor did.

So, are you going to try this green smoothie? If you eat peanut butter you'll love this flavor. If you are peanut free use the nut butter of your choice. Are you dairy free? Use a vanilla-flavored nut milk and cultured soy milk for an absolutely scrumptious smoothie.


[After making dairy-free smoothies for my daughter's teacher recovering from throat surgery, I was going to hand over the rest of the almond milk carton to my neighbor. I could use the room in the fridge. However, once I tasted a smoothie I was smitten and kept the rest of the carton.]

Sometimes I feel like I'm cheating on my Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farmers. I have a weekly Saturday morning rendezvous with my Spinach guy because, quite frankly, he gives me what I crave. It's a mindset switch. Instead of only eating from the farm share and the garden, I'm eating what I want in addition to the produce from the farm share and garden. And I want spinach. For this.


A selection of dairy free smoothies for the teacher.

For other recipes using spinach, please see my Spinach Recipes Collection, part of the Visual Recipe Index by Ingredient, a resource for folks like me eating from the farm share, the farmer's market, the garden, the neighbor's garden, and great deals on ugly produce at the grocery store.

This recipe makes enough for 1 very large serving or 2 servings. Smoothies are easy to keep for several days (I use a 1 pint canning jar with these reusable caps (Amazon affiliate link). Simply store in the fridge, take out and shake up to combine the settled out flavors, and enjoy.

Cook time: 00:00
Total time: 00:05

2 Tablespoons peanut butter (sunflower butter works great)

2 cups spinach leaves (baby or grown up, the age of your spinach does not matter)

English cucumber vs standard cucumber

This cucumber juice is easiest with an English cucumber: because you don’t have to peel it! Alex and I typically buy English cucumbers because we like the flavor so much better. You can definitely use standard cucumber here: just peel it before using. But most of the nutrients in a cucumber are contained in the skin, so it’s another pro for using an English cucumber if you can find it! Here are the major differences between English cucumber vs standard cucumber:

  • English cucumber is long with very thin skin, and the seeds are small. The flavor is sweeter than the standard cucumber, and it doesn’t need to be peeled or seeded before eating. Because the thin skin is so fragile, it’s sold with a plastic covering in the grocery store.
  • Standard slicing cucumber is shorter, with very thick, dark green skin and very large seeds. The thick skin and seeds can be bitter, so they’re often removed when cooking. We recommend removing it for this cucumber juice recipe.

Pear Zinger Juice with Cucumber and Ginger

About 5 years ago, juicing became an integral part of my life. In fact, I credit juicing as one of the top reasons I was able to free myself of the wheelchair that became necessary after a major, year-and-a-half-long lupus flare-up. Though the effects of juicing didn’t kick in right away I continued on. Within two to three months, major changes began to happen.

Today, I incorporate juicing into my daily regimen because of the incredible energy and nutrients it provides. Most of the time I do a dark, leafy green, heavier juice, but there are days when I need something light and refreshing. This is one of the juices I turn to I incorporate ginger because I love the taste and it works wonders on inflammation, cucumber because of its water content and flavor, and top it off with my favorite fruit, pear. Have fun with this juice and play around with it depending on how much ginger you prefer and your tastes when it comes to sweetness (pear)!

Further Food Commentary:

For Marisa, juicing is a great way to get a concentrated amount of nutrients into the bloodstream. Ginger is a rockstar addition to this juice. Its anti-inflammatory properties are helpful in mitigating the swelling and joint pain associated with lupus. It has also been found to help reduce blood pressure, cholesterol and clotting, which is essential because those with lupus are at a higher risk of heart disease. Pear contains glutathione, a potent antioxidant that is also great for keeping blood pressure and stroke-risk low.
