I’m always on the lookout for a new green smoothies so that I don’t get too stuck on the same old recipe of spinach & blueberries. Green smoothies are an awesome way to get an extra green boost in the morning, especially since I sneak in some greens with every single meal (or at least aim to do so!)
This apple and kale smoothie will leave you glowing from the inside out, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
We’ve got the apple for a delicious natural sweetness, which works really well with the kale and doesn’t let your smoothie taste too, well, green! We want something that is good for us AND we can enjoy!
This one is packed with protein, as we’ve got the protein powder, the bee pollen, the green superfoods, and the pumpkin (pepitas) seed butter! You’ve also got some amazing Omega-3 and fibre from the ground flax seeds, so all in all this is a nutrition king of a smoothie!
This delicious 'Glowing Green' Apple and Kale Smoothie is a perfect way to start your day with some sneaky greens! This smoothie is a nutrition powerhouse which will get you glowing from the inside out! Full of protein & healthy fats, with a naturally sweet taste, it's a winner!

Recipe type: Breakfast, Smoothie
Cuisine: Healthy, Vegan, Paleo, Raw
1 apple, chopped (leave skin on!)
Handful of kale leaves
½ cup water
½ cup nut milk (I used almond)
1 tbsp ground flax seeds
1 tbsp pumpkin seed butter
1 tbsp greens powder*
1 tsp bee pollen, for sprinkling
1 tbsp vegan protein powder (optional)
Add your apple, kale, and liquid to a blender and blitz until fully combined, about 1-2 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend again until they're all combined without any lumps and pieces.
Serve in a glass, sprinkling your bee pollen on top!
GREEN POWDER -There are many options out there, so look for a greens powder that has at least wheatgrass and spirulina! Preferentially raw and organic, but if you can't find any good ones then just some spirulina or wheatgrass on its own will do!
VEGAN - simply omit the bee pollen
GROUND FLAX - If you can, make the ground flaxseeds yourself. To do so, place the wholeflaxseeds in a spice or coffee grinder and blitz them into a powder. Store in the fridge for up to a week!
