Green Goodness Smoothie


1 cup (250 mL) almond milk or water
¾ cup (180 mL) frozen pineapple
½ banana
1-2 kale leaves, stem removed, torn into pieces(about 1 cup/250 mL)
2 tbsp (30 mL) hemp hearts
1-2 tsp (5-10 mL) fresh or dried ginger
½ tsp (2.5 mL) turmeric
1 scoop plant-based protein powder (optional)
pinch black pepper
ice or water



  1. Add all ingredients to high-powered blender and blitz until smooth.


  • If you want this a little sweeter, add 1-2 pitted dates or 2-3 tsp (10-15 mL) maple syrup.
  • If the consistency is too thick, add a bit of water. For a thicker smoothie, throw in a couple ice cubes.
