A Green Smoothie That Doesn’t Taste Like Grass!

by DailyHealthPost Editorial

If you’re looking for a super-clean, super-tasty start to the day when you wake up in the morning, be sure to see & save this smoothie recipe.

As with almost all smoothies, use the measurements as a reference and feel free to riff from there! If mango is too sweet for you, substitute with strawberries. Or if you love something tart in the AM, throw in a handful of frozen cranberries (the secret to a super-fresh-tasting smoothie!).


  • 1.5 cups raw kale, chopped
  • 1 frozen banana, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup frozen mango
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 squeeze of lemon
  • 1 cup coconut water
  • 1/2 bunch mint, for garnish (add a few leaves before blending if you like)


  • First, add the chia seeds to the coconut water to soak (2 min).
  • Add bananas, kale, and mango to your blender.
  • Squeeze about a teaspoon of lemon juice into the blender.
  • Add chia seed/coconut water mix.
  • Blend until smooth.
  • Add a few mint leaves as garnish, and enjoy!
