Green Monster Smoothie

4. Green Monster Smoothie

This recipe is a little bit more green-tasting than the rest of these smoothies, but if you’re ready to up the green ante, this is a great way to start!


  • 1 Haas avocado, peeled, pitted, and chopped
  • 1 apple, chopped and cored
  • 1/2 cup kale, ribs removed and chopped
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1-2 tablespoons of fresh ginger, chopped
  • 1/4 cup frozen mango or pineapple
  • 5 ice cubes
  • 2 cups water


  1. Blend. Blend. Give your blender a break, then blend some more. Take another break and blend one more time for good measure. Drink!
