Now, this is a tasty way to try raw kale for the very first try! It looks amazing!

I love all the ingredients that you used too! I will try this with my home-made cashew nut milk! :)

MMMMMMMM! Georgous! xxx


Yummm! Thanks for posting this, Amy. I will try it :)

Melanie, Glad to hear from you! Let me know if you try it out. Sending you love.

Zella Sage

Sophie, I hope you LOVE this. Cashew nut milk will work perfectly. It is a great way to get your raw greens without an overpowering bitterness. If you want more sweetness, you can always add some raw honey. Enjoy!


Yum!! Just got 2 free pineapples from Earth Fare -- now I know what to do with them. :)

Zella Sage

Sherry, Even better with fresh pineapple! I still haven't visited an Earth Fare. Will try to when I'm near one. Hope you love the smoothie!

I just posted a recipe last week that's very close to this! Glad you love your green smoothies as much as I do!

Zella Sage

Averie, I peeked at your pina colada and it looks great!


MMM, looks amazing! I have never tried kale in a smoothie before, so I will definitely try this. I love coconut oil and butter as well, eat it every day, and I truly believe in its benefits. Thanks for sharing this superb recipe:) Have a wonderful day!

I love the idea of mixing pineapple and kale. The smoothie looks wholesome!

Zella Sage

Thess, kale in a smoothie is such an easy and yummy way to get your greens! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do...with the ever-so-perfect coconut oil.

Zella Sage

It is so wholesome and delicious, Angie!


I just had a very similar smoothie yesterday: fresh pineapple, kale, Meyer lemon (hybrid of lemon and tangerine), slice of ginger, Japanese pear for added sweetness. Delicious~~! I'm an overnight office cleaner. I cut my smoothies in half with filtered water, then bring to bottles to work with me; I'm an overnight office cleaner, and I need all the energy I can get!

Zella Sage

Rosemary, I love the addition of pear and lemon in the smoothie...sounds like a great combination with kale and ginger. I'm sure it gives you a boost for the overnight shift. Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a wonderful day...hope you get plenty of rest!


I will have to try this!

Zella Sage

I like your blog, Emily. Thanks for stopping by.

This smoothie has my name written all over it! I love the addition of the coconut butter. Yum!

Zella Sage

Andrea, coconut butter makes everything better!


What kind of blender do you use?

Zella Sage

Christine, I have been using Vita-Mix for the past 8 years and LOVE it.


Amy, I just came across your blog while searching for some good recipes using Kale. I am very much into healthy eating, exercising etc etc. I am planning to go for yoga lessons. I am trying to convince my husband to go with me too :-) There are so many DVDs, books instructing yoga. But I feel more comfortable to learn from a teacher personally. The only one I am comfortable doing is Surya Namaskar which I learnt when I was in teens. I am now over 40. Other exercises I do are running 5k and 3k alternately and doing stretches, crunches to strengthen my core. I also do some exercises for the legs to keep it strong so I don't feel too sore after the running. I will try it definitely this week and give you feed back. I like your blog. Thanks for sharing. I love meeting & interacting with people who like to eat healthy and exercise and lead a balanced life physically, mentally and spiritually. That helps me too...Warm Regards...


When I said I try it definitely this week...I meant the smoothie recipe... :-)


I'm allergic to nuts but really want to try this smoothie - any suggestions for the nut milk substitution?

Zella Sage

Julie, I would just use water as a substitution. In fact, when I don't have any fresh-made nut milk in the fridge, I use water. I've also been adding cilantro to mine recently...great addition! Hope this helps.

We use greek yogurt, strawberries, mango peach protein drink and fresh kale....but fresh pineapple sounds marvelous!!


This looks amazing and I will try this today.
