There are a lot of green smoothie recipes in the world, some with avocado, others with matcha. But this one is a Fitbit favorite because it doesn’t try to mask the earthy flavor of the kale. Instead, a little bit of citrus and ginger transform it into something fresh and bright. If you think you don’t like green smoothies, just try it. Pretty soon, you’ll be sipping it every morning.


1 banana, peeled and broken in chunks
1 cup (6 oz/185 g) frozen mango chunks
2 cups (2 oz/60 g) torn kale leaves
1 cup (8 oz/250 g) Greek yogurt, plain, low-fat
1 cup (8 fl oz/250 ml) 100-percent orange juice
1 slice fresh ginger


In a high-speed blender, combine the banana, mango, and kale leaves. Add the yogurt and orange juice and toss in the ginger. Blend on high until thick and smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides of the blender once or twice. Add a little water to loosen, if necessary.

Pour the smoothie into tall glasses and serve cold.
