Take Me Away Green Smoothie

Author Notes: The Winter Wonderland continues here in Upstate NY, and for those who aren’t lucky enough to be somewhere tropical right now…well…we wish we were.

Though I can’t get to somewhere warm right now, I rounded up the most sunshine-inspired ingredients in my kitchen and combined them with mega-vitamin packed kale for a tasty tropical treat.

Serves: 1


  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1 cup frozen mango
  • 1 large handful chopped kale
  • 1 cup filtered water


  1. Cut the avocado and scoop it out of peel. Add in frozen ingredients, chopped kale and water. Blend until smooth.
  2. If you don’t own a Vitamix I highly recommend purchasing one. It’s essentially self-cleaning, which makes it infinitely better than any other blender I’ve used, and well worth the extra expense.
