About the recipe

When you have kids, you come up with all sorts of ideas to ensure their growing bodies are getting enough greens. That is exactly how I came up with this green smoothie. The pineapple, banana and pear make it plenty sweet, so they won’t know that I snuck celery, cucumber, kale and ginger in there.

Celery and ginger are anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral; kale boosts digestive health, containing fiber, antioxidants, calcium and vitamin C; cucumber promotes hydration, may lower blood sugar and is low in calories. What’s not to love?

Serves 2.


  • 2 cups cubed fresh pineapple
  • 1 banana
  • 1 Bartlett pear
  • ½ cucumber
  • ½-inch piece fresh ginger
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1-2 cups water
  • 1 cup Willo baby kale
Baby Kale


  1. Combine all ingredients except for the water in a blender. Add 1 cup of water and blend together until all large chunks are gone, adding more water as needed. Pour into a mason jar and enjoy!
