This simple and satisfying green smoothie is made with just 4 ingredients and comes together quickly. Feel free to halve the recipe to make 1 smoothie.


  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 medium bananas, previously peeled, sliced, and frozen
  • 2 cups fresh pineapple chunks
  • 2 heaping cups kale


  1. Make sure you have a strong, powerful blender that will blend up the kale and frozen bananas.
  2. Add all of the ingredients to the blender in the order listed. Blend on high for at least 3 minutes or until smooth. Scrape down the sides of the blender as needed. Add more milk if it’s too thick. Serve and enjoy.
  3. Cover and store any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 8-10 hours.

  2. Almond Milk: We usually use unsweetened almond milk. Coconut milk or coconut water, soy milk, or cow’s milk are fine replacements. You could also use orange juice, which would add a lovely citrus flavor. Smoothie tastes creamiest with milk, though.
