Golden Green Smoothie

Green smoothies should be perfectly smooth and absolutely delicious. This recipe is naturally sweet and brims with the fruit flavors of the tropics. You can get a creamy result from a regular, immersion, or high-speed blender. Without a high-speed blender, you’ll just need to be a little more persistent.


  • 1 cup coconut water
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • Flesh of 1/2 ripe avocado, diced
  • 2 cups pineapple chunks
  • 1 frozen banana, sliced
  • 1 cup tightly packed, finely chopped lacinato kale pieces (not including stems)


  • In a Regular Blender: Place the coconut water, lime juice, avocado, and pineapple into the blender. Starting on a medium-low setting and increasing the speed as you go, blend until smooth. Depending on your blender, you may need to stop occasionally and press the ingredients toward the blades, then resume blending. Add the frozen banana slices and kale and continue to blend until perfectly smooth and creamy. Divide between two tall glasses and serve immediately.
  • In a High-speed Blender: Just toss it all in there!
