Good morning green smoothie

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!
