My daughter and son-in-law started my granddaughter (my little “Doll Face”) on green smoothies when she first started to eat lots of vegetables. I couldn’t believe it, but with no judgment about green vegetables at one-year old, she loved it. This is my daughter’s recipe, which I have also used for myself. You can change up the ingredients to your liking.



Total Time:

7 minutes

To Make


  • 1 handful of chopped kale, with the spine removed

  • 1 handful of spinach

  • ½ frozen banana

  • 1 apple cored, with skin on

  • ½ avocado

  • 1 ½ to 2 C. almond milk or coconut water

  • Optional: 5 ice cubes if banana is not frozen


Place all ingredients into a high-speed blender (I use a Vitamix) and blend till smooth. Pour into a cup with a straw and tight screw on top to avoid unnecessary spills.

 Tip: Keep this one in the kitchen. From experience, this one is hard to clean off the family room couch!
