Kale & Pineapple Smoothie | Delicious Green Smoothie Recipes



Kale and Pineapple Smoothie | Delicious Green Smoothie Recipes

A green smoothie doesn't have to taste .... like green. With the right ingredients you can actually get your daily dose of healthy veggies without compromising on the taste with a glass of delicious green smoothie.

You'd know by now that smoothies are my go-to health drink, which I make sure to have every morning. Not only are they packed with nutrients, with the right ingredients they taste delicious, are super easy to make, keeps me energized all-day long and make for the perfect breakfast that keeps me satiated until lunch.

With thousands of trials and errors, I've learnt the secret to making delicious smoothies - from green smoothies to tropical delights to berry and chocolate treats.

On most days my post-workout meal includes a glass of green smoothie and here's one of my favorite - Kale & Pineapple Smoothie. I play around with different combinations in the Kale & Pineapple Smoothie itself depending on my mood and weather.




I N G R E D I E N T S 
1 cup pineapple chunks 
5 long kale leaves stems
Juice freshly squeezed from 3 Valencia oranges (or 1 cup coconut water)
1 teaspoon grated ginger (optional, I prefer it during winter or to resolve digestion issues)
Pinch of sea salt

D I R E C T I O N S 
Wash kale leaves with warm water and make sure its clean. 
Throw in all the ingredients in a high speed blender whip it well and serve fresh

Cook time: 7 minutes

This green smoothie is packed with healthy ingredients - 
  • Kale that is known as a nutritional powerhouse and is great for detoxification and weight loss, helps strenghten immune system, is rich source of calcium beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, helps in healthier skin, hair and nails and helps fights diseases as it is good source of vitamin K, folic acid and B6
  • Pineapple not only adds an amazing sweet taste to this smoothie but also has digestive and anti-inflammatory benefits, gives immune support and provides you a Vitamin C boost.
  • Ginger adds a nice spicy flavor to your green smoothie when you need it and must be added when you have any stomach issues, want help with morning sickness, muscular pain or soreness or want to fight cold or flu. Ginger has lots of medicinal properties to keep you healthy and strong
  • Orange juice is rich in Vitamin C and adds a nice flavor to the smoothie in addition to giving it a nutritional boost. You can choose to swap orange juice with coconut water (fat and cholesterol free and super rich in calcium and potassium) sometimes as it is also great for health and lends green smoothies a nice flavor.
For a creamy and delicious green smoothie, take off the ginger and sea salt and throw in a small avocado in the mix. It tastes super yummy! You can also add apple to make it extra creamy and sweet.

To keep things simple I sometimes use just kale, pineapple and orange juice and if need an extra green boost add spinach leaves in the mix. This green smoothie tastes delicious too and is packed with nutrients.

So what's the secret to making a delicious green smoothie?
Adding all the veggies in the mix may not appeal to everyone's taste buds so the best way to get yourself and your family to eat the kale, spinach and other greens is to mix them with sweet yet fibrous and nutritious fruits like apple, banana and pineapple and blend it with orange juice to add the nice combo to tangy and sweet and the great citrus flavor. Avocado is great way to make it creamy and if you need to change things up, then add cinnamon in the concoction. Not only is it super good for health, but also adds amazing flavor. Goes best with creamy smoothie. Avoid fruits like watermelon and papaya with your greens as they may not be great on your stomach when fixed with other things. Although pineapple and mint is an exception - it makes for a great juice combo.
