Kale avocado banana smoothie on a wood countertop.
Several years ago I tried making my first green smoothie. We couldn’t handle the chunks of kale in our smoothie. It was disgusting. Fast forward to the present and now we have a Blendtec which can handle kale with no problem. I’m impressed by any machine that can make kale disappear. One thing I really love about this smoothie is that it has a beautiful color. Sometimes “green smoothies” end up a weird brown color. My kids are skeptical of those. But this beautiful green smoothie truly is bright green. The banana and avocado makes it nice and creamy and the orange juice gives a zesty boost.
Time to Make It: <5 minutes
Yield: Serves 2
2 cups orange juice
2 cups kale
1 avocado, pitted and skinned
2 large frozen bananas
1. Pour the orange juice into a Blendtec
or other high power blender. Add in the kale and blend until smooth.
2. Add in the avocado and frozen bananas. Blend until smooth.

Can you substitute different greens for the kale such as collards?

Yes, almost any leafy green can work in a green smoothie. However, they will all have a slightly different taste.

Thanks for this very useful info you have provided us. I will bookmark this for future reference and refer it to my friends. More power to your blog. Vitamix
