Made with almond milk (coconut water is delicious too), kale, chia seeds, pineapple, mango and orange, this smoothie is light and refreshing. Whenever I make this for myself and my kids for a snack, I feel energized and ready to tackle whatever is next on my to do list.

I’ve been loving almond milk in my smoothies and overnight oats because of its smooth, creamy texture and short ingredient list. It doesn’t have any strange, unrecognizable ingredients and I love the simple unsweetened almond flavor. I’ve slowly been transitioning to plant-based milks and unsweetened almond milk is a staple in my kitchen.

We love all kinds of smoothies from my list of breakfast smoothies to my collection of all the best smoothie recipes and this topical smoothie is one of our fruity favorites.

I’ve made this Tropical Green Smoothie with both baby kale and the green curly kale that you most often see in your grocery store. Either way, you can’t taste the greens. When adding kale to your smoothies, it’s best to add some sweet fruits to offset kale’s bitterness. A quadruple combination of pineapple, mango, banana and orange do the job in this refreshing smoothie.

You can add whatever greens you have left in your refrigerator to your smoothies. You’ll see baby kale in the photos here. You can also blend in spinach, swiss chard, romaine lettuce, or even carrot top greens! To keep your greens fresh for days in your refrigerator, see my tips for how to wash kale.

Tips for making this Tropical Green Chia Seed Smoothie:

  • 1/2 cup of mango (fresh or frozen) is a great substitute for the fresh orange.
  • To bulk this smoothie up even more, add 2-3 tablespoons of raw, old-fashioned oats.
  • Store your chia seeds in the freezer to make them last longer.
  • A high powered blender will ensure that the kale and chia seeds are completely blended for the smoothest smoothie.
