5 Green Smoothie Recipes
5 Kale Smoothies You Need to Try
Kale is having a moment—and for good reason: The crazy-versatile green is an awesome source of vitamins A, C, and K. What’s more, it’s loaded with fiber and iron, and (no, we’re not done) it’s super-low in calories, too.
You can use it to make chips, salads, sides , desserts, and—a current favorite—smoothies. Read on for the tastiest-looking kale smoothie recipes we saw on Instagram this week:
This smoothie contains 2 cups kale, half a pineapple, 1 cup coconut water, and a garnish of coconut flakes and goji berries. And for the record, we’re loving that pineapple bowl serving idea.
Banana helps cut the bitter taste of kale. Combine 1 small one with 1/2 cup frozen kale, 1/2 cup nonfat Greek yogurt, 1/4 cup skim milk, 2 tablespoons unsweetened apple sauce, 1 1/2 tablespoons chia seeds, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, and 1 cup crushed ice.
If green drinks creep you out, give this recipe a whirl. Fresh raspberries and strawberries help disguise the kale and produce a pretty pink smoothie. Add pineapple, banana, a splash of milk, Greek yogurt, and protein powder to try it.
Kale, avocado, pineapple, and ginger make this recipe unique. Top it with hemp seeds for an Insta-worthy crunch.
The coolest ingredient in this icy smoothie (besides kale)? Frozen cucumber. To try the recipe, combine 2-3 cups spinach and kale, 1 frozen banana, 1 frozen cucumber, 1 frozen lemon, 1 tablespoon almond butter, 1 scoop vanilla protein, 1 tablespoon chia seeds, and water.
