Tropi-Kale Smoothie
I love vegetables, but I still find it hard to consistently get enough servings. I’m willing to bet that you can relate. When half your meals are on-the-go, snacks consist of things that fit in your purse or desk drawer, and dinner is the only homemade meal you eat all day (on a good day), how can you possibly get 9 servings of fruits and vegetables?! It feels impossible and maybe you don’t even try anymore.

How can you boost your fruit-and-veggie intake in a way that doesn’t completely disrupt your life? Smoothies! If you have a few minutes in the morning, you can make a produce-packed smoothie for breakfast. And if you do this everyday, you’ll feel healthier—those fruits and veggies can really make a difference in your day! That’s what Simple Green Smoothies’ 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge is all about.

The 30-Day Challenge is challenging you to drink a smoothie a day for a month. Simple Green Smoothies makes it easy by sending a weekly email with shopping lists, recipes, and tips.

Tropi-Kale Smoothie

Prep Time

5 minutes

Total Time

5 minutes


2 servings


1 cup fresh spinach

1 cup fresh kale

2 cups coconut water, unsweetened

1 banana

2 cups pineapple


Blend spinach, kale, and coconut water together until smooth.

Add remaining ingredients and blend again.


TIP: Use at least one frozen fruit to make the smoothie cold.


This will have more nutrition if you lightly steam the kale and spinach because the quick cooking brings out 100% of the carotenoids and eating them uncooked yields only 60%. I’m more interested in 100% of the nutrition so I always microwave/steam these veggies a little first. I also wouldn’t ever add the pineapple or high sugar (91%) banana that does nothing but add sugar trash to every blood cell in your body and begins a deterioration process because of it. It is called glycation.

@ Judith,
How much sugar is enough sugar? I thought this was a perfectly healthy smoothie. I want to transition to a raw vegan diet but want to make sure that I do it properly. Do you have any recommendations? Did you mean that one banana was too much to start the day? or that a banana had 91% of the recommended daily sugar intake? Thanks in advance for your response.
