How to make a pineapple kale smoothie

Blend almond milk, kale, pineapple, and banana in a blender and blend until smooth.

Tip: To make smoothie cold and creamier, use a frozen banana instead!

Note, if your blender needs a little love, I discovered Enbizio, a website that sells replacement parts for blenders as well as other kitchen gadgets!

Benefits of pineapple kale smoothie

It’s no surprise pineapple and kale are packed with health benefits! Here’s a breakdown:

Pineapple:

  • Inflammatory rich food
  • Natural detox for the body
  • Great source of Vitamin C and Vitamin A

Kale:

  • High in fiber
  • Rich in antioxidants
  • Is loaded with Vitamin K

Both kale and pineapple have great health benefits and when combined they make one powerhouse of a smoothie!

Okay, now that we have the basics down, it’s time to customize this recipe!

  • Add mango for an extra health boost and tropical punch

  • Substitute banana with avocado for a creamy texture (and a banana free smoothie!)
  • Add yogurt for a protein boost
  • Blend your favorite vegan protein powder (I recommend plain or vanilla) for a meal replacement shake
  • Substitute kale with spinach or another leafy green
  • Add chia seeds, flax seeds, spirulina, or another super food for a health boost
