What You Need to Make This Kale Mango Smoothie

Smoothie ingredientsThere are only 5 ingredients required for this smoothie, and all can easily be found at your local grocery store. This smoothie is 100% vegan and can be made with fresh or frozen fruit.

For the kale, your grocery store may have several different options. Between curly kale, dino kale, or purple kale, it really doesn’t matter which you choose. Just remember to destem your kale before blending.

As for the mango, I’m using frozen because I find it to be the most convenient option, but fresh is great too. The same goes for your bananas—I’ll be using fresh today.

Don’t have orange juice? No worries! You can use water, dairy milk, or non-dairy milk, whichever is convenient for you.

The honey can also be swapped for agave nectar or maple syrup.

Ingredients:

  • Kale
  • Mango
  • Banana
  • Honey
  • Liquid of choice (water, dairy milk, non-dairy milk, or orange juice)

Optional Ingredients:

I’ve gone ahead and listed some other optional ingredients you can incorporate into this recipe if you want to switch it up. If using additional liquid or yogurt, reduce the liquid in the recipe by the same proportion:

  • 1 inch peeled ginger or 1 teaspoon ginger powder

Are smoothies with kale good for you?

Yes1 Kale is one of the healthiest leafy greens around. It’s packed with antioxidants, fiber, vitamins A, C, K, and potassium—the list goes on and on. I love adding kale to my smoothies. If you add enough fruit and perhaps a dash of something sweet, you won’t even be able to tell that it’s in there. (Source)
