Fresh Kale and Fruit Smoothie

Fresh Kale and Fruit Smoothie

We drink a lot of smoothies, especially in the summer when ingredients are fresh. I grow kale in our garden, so this smoothie is one of our favorites that we drink on almost a daily basis


  • Kale
  • Banana
  • Pineapple
  • Mango
  • Chia seeds

As with most everyone, mornings are tight on time. To save myself time, I prep ahead by slicing the bananas, chopping the pineapple and mango into cubes and freeze them in individual reusable bags. As the kale season ends in our area, I will chop and freeze the kale with the fruit, that way I can just throw it all in the blender, add water and chia seeds, blend and go!

Kale Benefits

Kale is a dark leafy green that is highly nutritious and is full of vitamins, minerals, fiber and iron. On average, a serving of raw kale has about 3 grams of protein.

Chia Seeds

I’ve mentioned this in other posts, but chia seeds are such a power-packed little seed! They are full of Omega 3’s, antioxidants, and are also a source of fiber and protein.


You can mix it up with other fruit if you like, but I have found this combo to have the best fresh flavor.

Our family tries to be as environmentally conscious as we can. Which is why I love these bamboo straws, fun and eco-friendly! You can check them out and other cool reusable items @ use code: E38D8DCD for a 10% discount.
