Smoothies make it so easy to get lots of nutrients into your body all at once.

This purple detox smoothie is deceptively delicious. It’s sweet and refreshing, and nobody will be able to taste the red cabbage or kale. My children don’t especially enjoy cabbage in other forms, but they don’t have a problem with it in this smoothie.

Our bodies naturally detoxify themselves, with the liver doing the bulk of the work. But we can help things out by drinking extra water, avoiding sugary foods, and including lots of fruits and vegetables in our diets.

Purple Detox Smoothie Tips

Cabbage, blueberries, and kale are extra helpful with the detox process, so this smoothie can give your system a real boost. Plus, the purple is so fun, right?

Be sure the put the liquid ingredients into the blender first, followed by the solid ingredients. This makes it easier for your blender to yield a smooth drink.

Recommended Equipment


  • 1 cup non-dairy milk or water
  • 1/2 cup red cabbage
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 2 leaves medium kale chopped


  • Place the liquid in the blender, followed by the remaining ingredients.
  • Puree the mixture until smooth. A high-quality blender should achieve this without the need to strain the smoothie.
  • Taste the mixture to see if it needs a bit of maple syrup for extra sweetness. If your banana is ripe, the smoothie shouldn’t need any added sweetener.
  • Divide the drink into 2 glasses and serve. This can also be refrigerated for later.

    1. I don’t, Janice, but you can plug in the recipe at My Fitness Pal and they’ll provide the complete nutrition profile for you.

    1. I’m not sure what you mean by “regular” cabbage, Tracy. Do you mean green cabbage? You could definitely substitute green cabbage in this recipe, but it won’t come out purple. 🙂

  1. This looks very interesting, but even with my Ninja I have doubts of the cabbage blending well…can you steam it first? Grate it?

    1. Yes, you could definitely steam it first, Angela. You could even use a little of the cooking water in the smoothie.

  2. The purple is definitely fun! Love how you can get raw cabbage and kale to taste great. It is perfect for kids. Thanks for sharing

    1. Thanks, Steve. The kids won’t have a clue about the cabbage. (But I do tell them afterwards so they know they “like” cabbage now!)
