The Kale & Banana Smoothie

Looking for a quick and refreshing way to boost your mornings (or afternoons)? Look no further than the Kale & Banana Smoothie! This powerhouse blend packs a punch of vitamins, minerals, and creamy deliciousness, making it the perfect on-the-go breakfast or a healthy afternoon pick-me-up.

Why Kale & Banana?

  • Kale: This leafy green is a nutritional superstar, loaded with vitamins A, C, and K, as well as fiber and antioxidants. Don’t worry—the strong flavor is mellowed by the other ingredients!
  • Banana: This potassium-rich fruit adds natural sweetness and creaminess to the smoothie, making it a delicious way to sneak in some greens.

Ingredients (makes 1 serving):

  • 1 cup leafy kale, roughly chopped
  • 1 ripe banana, peeled and sliced
  • 1 cup unsweetened plant-based milk (almond, oat, soy, etc.)
  • 1/2 cup water (or more, depending on desired thickness)
  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup (optional, for extra sweetness)
  • Optional additions: a handful of spinach, frozen berries, a scoop of protein powder, pinch of ground cinnamon


Blend it up! Toss all ingredients into your blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Adjust the amount of water or plant-based milk to achieve your desired consistency.

Tips & Tricks:

  • Frozen bananas add a thicker, creamier texture to the smoothie.
  • If you don’t have fresh spinach, a handful of baby kale leaves will work just fine.
  • Feeling adventurous? Add a scoop of your favorite protein powder for an extra protein boost.
  • Don’t like honey or maple syrup? Dates or a squeeze of agave nectar can also add sweetness.


This Kale & Banana Smoothie is a delicious and nutritious way to start your day or conquer that afternoon slump. So ditch the sugary drinks and blend your way to a healthier, happier you!
