Kale Pineapple Green Smoothie without Banana – Refreshing & tasty smoothie with kale, pineapple, grape, apple, orange juice, and flaxseeds.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 small size apple, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1/2 cup frozen green seedless grapes
  • 1 cup packed frozen kale (or 2 cups loosely packed)
  • 1 and 1/2 cup orange juice (or less)
  • 1/2 cup of water (depending on how much orange juice you use and to adjust the thickness)
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds
  • Ice cubes (optional)

Instructions

  1. Place everything in the high-speed blender. 
  2. Blend until everything is smooth. Adjust the thickness by adding more orange juice/water (to make it thinner) or ice cubes (to make it thicker).

Notes

  • Freeze kale, pineapple, and grape ahead of time. Using frozen kale, pineapple, and grapes help with separation as well as foaming up the smoothie a lot less.
  • Please feel free to adjust the amount of orange juice and water. I like to have about 2 cups of liquid (orange juice and water combined) added to my smoothie. If you use more orange juice, it will be sweeter. 
  • If you are not using a high-speed blender (like Vitamix or Blendtec), blend the orange juice with kale and apple first, then add the rest of the ingredients. Start with the low speed and gradually increase the speed as the smoothie becomes smooth. 
  • Please see the substitution and variation above for more information.
