Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw coconut water or filtered water
  • 1 cup firmly packed baby spinach
  • 1 English cucumber, roughly chopped (do not peel)
  • 2 cups diced ripe fresh pineapple
  • 1 ½ tsp. finely grated lime zest, plus more to taste
  • 2 Tbs. fresh lime juice, plus more to taste
  • 1/8 tsp. ground turmeric
  • Pinch of natural salt
  • Alcohol-free liquid stevia (optional)
  • 1 Tbs. chia seed (black or white), plus more to taste

Optional boosters:

  • 1 Tbs. plain liquid chlorophyll
  • 1 Tbs. pure aloe vera juice
  • 1 tsp. wheatgrass powder

Preparation

Throw all ingredients except the chia seeds, but including the boosters, into your blender and blast on high for 30 to 60 seconds, until ingredients are completely pulverized. Strain with a filtration bag, nut milk bag, or fine-mesh sieve, and then whisk in the chia seeds. Transfer to a jar, seal tightly, and chill in the fridge for 30 to 50 minutes. Enjoy cold.
