This Green Goddess Smoothie recipe features kale, almond milk and apples. It’s the perfect, healthy way to start your day.

I love taking time out for me, and fixing a smoothie in the morning. I would like to tell you that I crave fruits and vegetables and that I just can’t get enough of them, but that would be a lie.

Since I’m not a fruit & vegetable lover, smoothies are my way of jam packing at least three servings into one meal! That is, when I’m not on one of my healthy juice cleanses. But, I find smoothies so much easier to make than using a juicer. All you have to do is add all the ingredients to your blender and process.

A high-powered blender, such as a Vitamix, would be preferable for this recipe. If you don’t have one, just be sure to chop up your apples very finely before blending.

This green smoothie recipe really keeps me full and energized until lunch and it feels like I’m indulging in a decadent treat for breakfast even though it’s super healthy and full of fiber and vitamins.

Green Goddess Smoothie Ingredients

  • Green Apple
  • Banana
  • Kale
  • Peanut Butter
  • Flaxseed
  • Maple Syrup
  • Almond Milk

This green smoothie recipe is super adaptable too. Try swapping the green apple for a pear. Use spinach in place of kale. Switch out the peanut butter for almond butter. You can also use any milk that you prefer in this recipe – oat milk, dairy milk and soy milk all work here.

    I’ve tried with soy milk instead of almond milk, and honey instead of maple syrup. It works great this way too. Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe.

      Thanks SO much Mark! It’s one of my very first recipes posted on this blog, so the pictures aren’t perfect by any means, but it’s such a delicious way to start the day!

    I used flax meal instead of seed and lacinato kale and couldn’t get it smooth enough for my taste. But the flavor was delish
