This apple kiwi kale smoothie is a delicious way to pack in some nutrients in your day and is super refreshing! It's great for breakfast, or a healthy snack, and will only take you 5 minutes to make!

This might just be one of my favorite green smoothie recipes! It's a little tart, a little sweet, and super refreshing. It's not creamy since it's made without a banana (don't worry, there is an option to add one if you want it creamy😉) so it's sort of a mix between a green juice and a green smoothie. Either way, it's delicious!

Smoothies can be a power house when it comes to nutrients! My Strawberry Almond Smoothie and Easy Berry Spinach Smoothie are some of my other go-tos!

  • â–¢ 1 cup packed kale (see notes)
  • â–¢ 1 green apple, cut into 1" chunks
  • â–¢ 1 kiwi (see notes)
  • â–¢ juice from ½ lemon
  • â–¢ 1 tbsp. honey
  • â–¢ ¾ cup coconut water (regular water works too)
  • â–¢ 1 handful of ice cubes (optional)

Place all ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend until smooth.
Taste and adjust as needed. Add more honey or lemon juice to taste. If it’s too thick, add more coconut water.
Pour into a glass and enjoy!
  • I use curly kale, but Lacinato, or even baby kale will work. Tear the kale leaves from the thick inner stems before adding to the your smoothie.
  • Cut the ends from both sides of your kiwi, then cut the kiwi into quarters and add to your blender, skin and all (the skin is the most nutritious part!)
  • Please see full blog post (linked below) for add-in options and substitutions.
  • If all ingredients are at room temperature when adding to your smoothie, I recommend adding in a handful of ice cubes.
  • If you don't have a high-powered blender, you can blend the kale and coconut water first before adding remaining ingredients (this will help the kale to break down.)
