Kale is amazing. We know that. It fuels us with iron; vitamins A, C, and K; calcium; and powerful antioxidants. It’s good for our hearts and our skin. But sometimes, kale tastes a little too much like kale—especially in our morning smoothies. So, we’ve rounded up a collection of green smoothie recipes that will both excite your taste buds and keep you energized until lunch.
These shamrock-colored health treats all have five or fewer ingredients, or at least five or fewer required ingredients, so they are never too difficult to make. If you’re in a pinch, we’ve discovered that a kale (or spinach)–pineapple-banana combo is always a safe bet. Just add water, blend, and enjoy your morning meal. If you have a little more time, these delightfully refreshing (and surprisingly filling) recipes will have you keeping green all summer long.
