Kale Fruit Smoothie Recipe (No Dairy, No Banana!)

Go Dairy Free

I know, you’ve heard it before. Kale is a great source of dairy-free calcium. But it’s also high in vitamins A, C, and K and is a good source of several other minerals that support strong bones and general health. And this dairy-free kale fruit smoothie is a quick, easy, and tasty way to incorporate this super veggie into your diet. It’s naturally made with no allergens, has no added sugars, and yes, unlike most kale smoothies, it’s banana free.

Dairy Free Kale Fruit Smoothie that is also Banana Free

This dairy-free kale fruit smoothie recipe was originally shared with us by Linda DeVoe as an entry for a recipe contest we ran in 2013. We’ve since updated her recipe, and I’ve got a few options you might like.

Tropical Kale Fruit Smoothie

Replace the flesh of a ripe mango with the pear. Make sure to use a mango variety with limited fiber, such as sweetheart, ataulfo, Keittor Knows. Also use coconut milk drink or lite canned coconut milk for the milk drink.

Kale Fruit Protein Shake

Add about 2 tablespoons of your favorite dairy-free protein powder in plain, vanilla or berry. Most brands add a bit of sweetness, so I would add the protein powder before testing the smoothie for sweetness. For best consistency I like to use collagen, protein proteinor pea protein powder.

Calcium Rich Kale Smoothie

Each serving of this dairy-free kale fruit smoothie has about 85 milligrams of calcium, of course. You can add more calcium by sprinkling in some calcium citrate powder, or you can use a calcium-rich milk drink. See our Milk Alternative Calcium Card to find a good option for your needs.

Kale Berries Fruit Smoothie

You can substitute 1/2 to 3/4 cup blueberries, strawberries, or blackberries for the kiwi. All three of these berries go well with pineapple and pear. If using blackberries, crush the blackberries and strain through a fine mesh sieve to remove the seeds. I don’t mind them in smoothies, but they are noticeable.
