This glowing skin green smoothie is not only energy boosting, delicious and super creamy, it also dramatically improved my skin appearance and skin health. You see … I used to have bad skin and I would develop bruisings in the cold season. Now it’s all gone and a big part of my solution was drinking this kind of vegetables based green smoothies.

The green smoothie comes with an interesting but unexpected taste, plus it has a rich and creamy texture that we all love in a smoothie. It’s loaded with many “good-for-you” nutrients and can be ready in 10-15 minutes. Let’s blend it together!

There’s something amazing about putting together a healthy smoothie from only a few ingredients. It’s all about the magic of starting with those raw ingredients and transforming them into a healthy drink that can give you a clean boost of energy.

If you’re looking for something different from your average banana and avocado smoothie, this one might be just the thing for you. This one comes with a very unexpected taste, and has that rich and creamy texture that we all love in a smoothie.

With this recipe I wanted to do something different, so I used prunes and grapefruit instead of bananas. I also used frozen spinach, carrots, fennel or basil, plus chia seeds. The result was a green smoothie made up from just a few simple ingredients, yet loaded with healthy nutrients and having more than one taste. I loved it, my wife loved it, and we hope you’ll love it too.

Need more reasons to try it? It was:

Creamy and Thick

Greens + Grapefruit Taste
Ginger + Turmeric Aftertaste
Balanced Aroma
Easy to Blend
& Fun to Drink

This glowing skin green smoothie is not only energy boosting, delicious and super creamy, it also dramatically improved my skin appearance. Give it a try!


  • Blender


  • 1 big avocado (skin and seed removed)
  • 3-4 big prunes (seedless)
  • 1 carrot
  • 2-3 slices fennel
  • 100 g frozen spinach
  • 2 slices grapefruit
  • 2 tsp turmeric + ginger powder
  • 4 tsp white chia seeds (or regular chia seeds)
  • 2 leaves fresh basil
  • 600-700 ml water


  • Add everything into your blender. Add enough water to level the ingredients.
  • Blend on medium to high until everything looks creamy.
  • That’s it! Serve fresh or store in the fridge for 2-3 days.


The secret to making this smoothie great is to use sweet prunes. Use locally grown prunes that are dark in color and have a rather soft texture. Don't be shy and test them, making sure they aren't sour.
Make sure to remove the skin in case your grapefruit is not organically grown. This is because conventionally grown grapefruits may have traces of pesticides in the skin.

  • Color: spring light green
  • Texture: creamy and thick, easy to drink
