She drinks one "every morning, whether or not she’s detoxing".

Nobody understands her audience like Gwyneth Paltrow.

The actress and super-relatable healthy lifestyle activist (43) shared a recipe for her favourite breakfast smoothie on her website Goop, which she drinks "every morning, whether or not she’s detoxing".

Unfortunately for fans, the "basic" juice will set you back a whopping $200 to make (just over R3000), MailOnline reports.

The concoction contains health food staples like almond butter and coconut oil, which are pricey enough, but also includes items like vanilla mushroom protein powder, Ashwagandha (which is said to help soothe anxiety) and -- wait for it -- MOON DUST.

The mushroom protein powder, which supposedly helps relieve stress, retails for a pricey $35 (R566) per jar.

The Ashwagandha will set you back a hefty $17 (R275).

Another crucial ingredient, cordyceps (which "increases cellular oxygen absorption", apparently) also costs $35 per jar.

And the moon dust? It appears it's not actually from the moon. But judging from the price, it may as well be. The "dust" is a range of Gwyn's specially concocted powders that boast a range of lofty benefits like "maintaining healthy systems for superior cognitive flow" and "stimulating and cultivating sexual flow".

Despite the eye-watering bill you'd rack up buying all the weird and wonderful ingredients, Gwyneth says it's an "extremely basic version".

"You can put in bananas or berries," the mom-of-two told Refinery29. "Sometimes I put in half of a sweet potato and make like a little pumpkin pie smoothie.

"And that’s really it."
