My Favorite Green Smoothie Recipe

Happy New Year!

How are you feeling this morning? Ready to start the new year with a bang? Or was there a bit too much excess last night? Are you still feeling the effects?

If you’re ready to kick sugar entirely for an amazing 10 days, check out the 10-Day Sugar Detox to feel amazing, lose weight, boost your energy, and finally kick your sugar addiction. We start Wednesday.

But if you’re looking for a little pick-me-up, I’ve got just the thing.

I get a LOT of requests to share my smoothie recipes. I don’t usually measure when I make my smoothies – you know, a handful of this, a little of that! – but this time, I made an exception for my favorite green smoothie recipe.

This recipe is one of my all-time best. I recently hosted a small gathering at my home, and the other women LOVED it – and they’re not even Health Junkies!

The funny thing is, I really had to encourage them to drink it after they saw the color. It’s hard being green!

They later admitted that they probably wouldn’t have tried it knowing it had kale in it. (Yep. Kale. But trust me, it’s awesome. And you probably won’t even taste it.)



Green Deliciousness Smoothie


  • 2 cups water (or coconut water)
  • 3/4 cup tightly packed kale (remove thick stems)
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt


  1. Blend water with kale thoroughly
  2. Add banana, blend
  3. Add pineapple, blend
  4. Add yogurt, blend
  5. Enjoy fresh with a friend

Note: If you have a Vitamix or something equally powerful, toss it all in together and blend. But if you have an average blender, add your ingredients 1 at a time.

This recipe is child-friendly. My little guy can’t get enough.
