Easy Vegan Green Smoothie Recipe

The hubby and I have been sipping on smoothies for months now. They make a quick meal on the go, plus they're full of vitamins and minerals.

You really can't go wrong with fresh fruit and vegetables in your glass, you know?

So this past weekend I created a new green smoothie for myself. I'm not a huge fan of the green drinks that taste like grass, so this was a nice change. Often I add a handful of spinach to my smoothies, and it's simply too flavorful. So, now I'm experimenting with baby kale. If you're not a fan of grass-flavored smoothies, try this!

Spinach-Free Green Smoothie
  • 3 cups baby kale
  • 1 cup green seedless grapes, frozen
  • 1 banana, frozen
  • 2 cups almond milk*
Mix all ingredients in a blender until they're creamy and smooth. Serve in a tall glass. I use a beer mug and tall straw for fun.

*Note: You can use any type of milk in this recipe. I can't digest cow milk very well, so my choice this week was Almond Breeze flavored with a hint of honey. The extra sweetness makes this smoothie taste even better! Next time I plan to try vanilla-flavored almond milk.

What's your favorite green smoothie recipe? Please share in the comments below.

Until Next Time,
Choose Healthy!

  1. I have added kale to a fruit smoothie and you can't even taste it. I haven't tried a true green smoothie yet. I do like adding frozen pineapple to my drinks as the bromelain is excellent for curbing inflammation. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

    1. I agree! Isn't it amazing that kale has less flavor than spinach in a smoothie? I also love pineapple in smoothies!! :) ~Angela

  3. Thanks for providing wealthy knowledge about drinks. There are many good energy booster supplements. So it is bit difficult to judge which drink is best. As I am taking Green drink and so I can claim it to be best organic supplement.
