Enjoy this nourishing and cleansing smoothie

With the great convenience that fast food offers when it comes to satisfying hunger, it’s easy to fall into the pattern of having it for lunch and/or dinner most days of the week. 

While it’s a cheap and easy fix to filling your tummy, fast food doesn’t really do much in providing you the nutrients you need. On top of that, fast food is often packed with sugar and salt. It also lacks the fiber needed to cleanse the gut, leaving you unnourished and bloated.

A good way to get both nourished and cleansed – that’s just as convenient as ordering fast food – is making yourself a spinach apple smoothie. (WATCH: Smoothie Saturdays: Cucumber mint yogurt)

Spinach, a “superfood,” is rich in vitamins A, C, and K; and other minerals needed for nourishment. This smoothie is also rich in fiber, making it a good remedy for bloatedness. It’s also a detoxifying drink.

Here’s our recipe for a yummy and nutritious spinach apple smoothie you can try at home!


  • 3/4 cup baby spinach

  • 1/2 medium frozen apple (cubed)

  • 1/2 4-inch frozen cucumber (cubed)

  • 1/2 cup low-fat milk

  • 2 teaspoons honey

  • 1/4 cup ice cubes


  1. Blend the spinach, apple, and cucumber together while gradually adding the low-fat milk in the mixture.

  2. Add the honey and ice cubes in and blend until the mixture smoothens.

  3. Blend the entire mixture until the desired consistency is achieved.

  4. Serve in a tall glass or a tumbler.
