Not only does the avocado in this smoothie give it a rich and creamy consistency, it also adds healthy fats which enhance the absorption of fat-soluble nutrients in the greens.

I am becoming additcted to these blended salads. I think they are really good, and they really do give me a boost during the day. I like the pineapple in this particular salad.

This was the first veggie smoothie we tried for a breakfast replacement and my boyfriend couldn't stop talking about how good it was for the entire day. We just recommend using a little more liquid because it was a bit too thick to drink.

I substituted raspberries for the kiwis and loved the results anyhow. Would probably taste very similar with the kiwis.

This is absolutely fabulous! I added some Kale, 1 Tbs. chia seeds, and substituted blueberries for the Kiwi as I didn't have any. It was very thick, so I also added 1/2 cup pomegranate juice.

Had this today for breakfast and we both enjoyed it. The only changes we made were adding a whole avocado instead of a half of one and added 8 ounces of Zico coconut water. (It was still on the thick side.) Also we did not peel the kiwis.

Tried this for my first smoothie with the exact ingredients listed above. DH and I really enjoyed it. A great recipe for a newbie to start with. So easy and good we can't wait to try other more involved recipes!

Used frozen pineapple and a banana which made for a great consistency!

Very good! I used 2 kiwis (all I had on hand) and 1/2 orange. I would make this again. Thank you!

I really like this one--first time I've tried kiwis in a smoothie! Baby kale is so much better than adult kale, but I'll probably try 50:50 with baby spinach next time. I used the whole avocado. Blending just the ingredients listed (with frozen banana and pineapple), I got more of a paste than a smoothie, so I thinned it with coconut water to smoothie consistency. Maybe substitute frozen mango chunks for half the pineapple next time.

Excellent pick up! Very very refreshing with frozen pineapple and frozen banana. Was feeling low on energy and this instantly provided the energy I needed. Also found it thick, and thinned it with more water, to taste. A 4-5 star indeed!
