Kale and Berries Breakfast Smoothie


I make this kale and berry smoothie every morning because it's quick, easy, and healthy. The berries provide a bunch of antioxidants, the kale packs in nutrients, and the almonds give it a nice crunch and added protein!

Prep Time:

Total Time:
10 mins


  • 1 banana, broken into chunks

  • ½ cup mixed frozen berries

  • ½ cup shredded kale

  • ½ cup orange juice

  • ½ cup water

  • 10 almonds (Optional)

  • 2 tablespoons plain yogurt


  1. Combine banana, berries, kale, orange juice, water, almonds, and yogurt in a blender; blend until smooth, about 20 to 30 seconds.


If I don't have any kale on hand, I substitute with spinach. I'll add a scoop of protein powder if I'm looking for more protein. Using just water works if you don't have any orange juice on hand.
