Not only are you getting the health benefits of fruit and vegetables in every sip.  This smoothie tastes fantastic too!

Okay, now that we got the whole YAY for healthy smoothies out of the way.  This smoothie tastes like the color Green!  Not like the ugly swampy green color.  This tastes like a happy cheerful green.

Basically, if this is your first time trying a Green Smoothie Recipe, don’t expect it to taste like a milkshake.  It tastes healthy.  It tastes good . . . and healthy!

You will need a good blender for this recipe.  There are inexpensive blenders that work well (I use the Smoothie Smart Blender).  And I’ll keep dreaming about the Vitamix!  {These are affiliate Amazon links}

The grapefruit and kale flavors really compliment each other.  This green smoothie recipe has quite a bit of kale in it.  If you’re going to drink a kale smoothie . . . Go Big!

The grapefruit brings a refreshing quality, while the banana and pineapple add the sweetness.  I added a dollop of Greek yogurt for creaminess and a little protein.  Feel free to leave off the yogurt if you prefer.

  1. I’m still sticking to my commitment to eat healthier! It’s been tough, but it needs to be done :) I’ve still yet to make a green smoothie. I know… it’s crazy! This sounds great though… maybe I’ll finally try a green smoothie :)

      This is actually my first green smoothie. I was pleasantly surprised. It does taste healthy … but a good healthy :)

  2. Yumm that sounds awesome! A bonus of the grapefruit’s vitamin C means that you absorb the iron from the kale better. Whoo hoo =)

  3. This sounds so refreshing! My husband is a grapefruit fanatic, so I’ll have to try this one!

  5. Caroline says:

    Is this doable without the banana? What would you suggest instead (to someone who does not like banana in smoothies?)

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Hi Caroline! You can definitely leave off the banana. Give it a taste, it may need a little sweetener without the banana. Enjoy!
