Beauty Smoothie time: SPA Skin Cleanser

beauty smoothie

I can’t count the number of battles I’ve had with my skin over the years. From acne, to dry skin to oily skin to sunburns… I can go every which way. I’ve learned a few constants over the years to keep my luscious skin between the ups and downs: hydration, fiber and healthy fats. Yep— those three things are the magic ingredients to beautiful luscious skin.

Wanna know why? Your skin is the largest organ on your body. And like your other organs, it’s affected by what you feed it and how other organs are functioning around it. I’m gonna be blunt here: if you’re having plumbing problems, there’s a good chance it’ll show on your skin. If foods are moving through you and leaving the body at a healthy pace, then the toxins will make it out via bowel movements. Yet if you’re clogged up, the toxins will find another way out… and the skin is the next avenue (and it isn’t pretty).

The Beauty Smoothie

To help keep my skin healthy, I rely in this beauty smoothie — SPA Skin Cleanser. It’s loaded with fiber, hydrating coconut water and healthy fats. It’s a gem of goodness and the taste is amazing too. Blend it, and let me know what you think by leaving a comment below.

    Hi There.Can you freeze your greens? Doesn’t freezing destroy them?

    Hi Kim,

    Yay! We’re so happy to hear you are loving our recipes! We suggest adding one (16oz) green smoothie to your diet everyday! Can’t get enough of our Spa Skin Cleanser Green Smoothie, enjoy this recipe throughout your week, just switch up your leafy greens occasionally. I try to blend this one at least once a week!

    Hi 🙂
    so i have been reading a lot of your recipes and they include pineapple. i don’t really like pineapple as it makes my smoothie taste bitter. and so i was wondering if i can substitute pineapple with something else?

  8. SGS Rawkstar

    September 3rd, 2015 at 3:40 am

    HI MJ,

    Not a fan of pineapple? No worries, we’ve got you covered! Orange, grapefruit, + mango are all great substitutes! You can also try adding a natural sweetener like honey, maple syrup, or dates to your green smoothie to help cover any bitter flavor from the pineapple.

    Hope this helps! 🙂

    Love all the info and your site
    I’m in for the next 30 day challenge

    Just wondering about turning recipes like this into meal replacement.
    Would I still add both a half avocado and hemp hearts? Or leave out the extra avocado? Or does it matter? Lol
    ☺ thanks in advance

    Hi Desiree,

    Great question! This is one of my favorite recipes (I add ginger, yum!) + perfect for using as a meal replacement because it’s already packed with healthy fats from the avocado! Simply add a protein like hemp hearts, your tummy + taste buds will thank you!

    I generally drink a green smoothie every morning as a breakfast meal replacement, but I add plant protein powder, like Vega…you don’t have protein powder in any of your recipes – is there a reason?

  12. SGS Rawkstar

    October 15th, 2015 at 10:45 am

    Hi Heather,

    We love adding plant-based protein powders to our green smoothies! Especially when using our green smoothies as a meal replacement. We also suggest adding healthy fats to ensure you’re getting a complete meal…



    We don’t include protein powders in our recipes, as we want to give our SGS tribe the option of adding proteins + healthy fats to any recipe!

    Cheers 🙂

    Is this a good shake to drink every morning? I can add flax seed or chia seeds to it? Also in making smoothies in advance how do you store the avocado in a jar or bag?

  14. SGS Rawkstar

    February 11th, 2016 at 5:14 pm

    Hi Stephanie,

    This is a great morning smoothie! Adding flaxseed or chia seeds is a great idea! When using your green smoothie as a meal replacement we suggest adding protein + healthy fats to ensure you’re fueling your body with a complete meal. Learn more here…


    Planning on having this smoothie every day? We do suggest rotating your leafy greens to prevent oxalate build-up. So one week blend this recipe with spinach, and then the next week blend it with a green from another leafy green family like kale. Learn more about the importance of rotating your leafy greens here…


    We personally love freezing our avocado! ou simply purée/mash it, put it in a air tight bag, and place it in the freezer. It might help to put a little lemon juice in with it, too! Don’t be surprised if the color is less of a vibrant green and more of a dull brown–it still has a great taste and lots of nutrients!

    Hope this helps! 🙂

    Hi there!
    What would be a good alternative to coconut water? I unfortunately cannot find it in my country, and I think the smoothie is a little too tasteless if I use regular water instead.

  18. SGS Rawkstar

    February 16th, 2016 at 7:13 am

    Hi Ida,

    Can’t find coconut water? No worries! Filtered water is the perfect substitute! Learn more about our favorite liquid base options here…

    Do you recommend a particular brand of coconut water? Thanks!

  20. SGS Rawkstar

    February 22nd, 2016 at 6:51 am

    Hi Lola,

    Great question! We suggest reaching for coconut water that is unsweetened and free of additives or preservatives. Personally, we love reaching for brands from Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods.

    I’ve recently started having green smoothies, a number of your recipes have pineapple and some have kiwi fruit. I’m allergic to these two fruit, can you please recommend what other fruit or vegetable I can use in their place. Thanks for a fab website and yummy recipes!

  22. SGS Rawkstar

    February 26th, 2016 at 8:27 am

    Hi Pauline,

    We’ve got you covered! Some great substitutes for pineapple are orange + mango. And reach for mango, orange, tangerine, or lime in place of kiwi!

    Hope this helps! Reach out with any questions! 🙂

    Hi, when you indicate fresh spinach( or fresh greens in general) can I substitute it with frozen ones instead? Thanks!!

  24. SGS Rawkstar

    February 29th, 2016 at 11:34 am

    HI Lucbabe,

    Great question! We love using frozen greens, but those from the grocery aisle don’t always yield the tastiest results. For that reason, we love to free our own!!

    So I stumbled across this website and I’m eager to try this recipe, (I have acne prone skin), and all the other recipes.

    The only problem is that I don’t have a fancy blender. But I do have a juicer. Could I make these recipes in my juicer?

    What are the benefits of fresh smoothies over fresh juice? Or does it not matter?


  28. SGS Rawkstar

    April 25th, 2016 at 5:58 pm

    Hi Josephine,
