kitchen gear

  • Cutting board
  • Sharp knife (adult needed)
  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring spoons
  • Blender (adult needed)


  • 1 cup  yogurt, milk, or almond milk
  • 2 overripe bananas, peeled, sliced, and (ideally) frozen
  • 2 cups pineapple chunks (fresh, frozen, or unsweetened canned)
  • 1 cup kale leaves with their thick stems removed or baby spinach
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • pinch salt
  • 2  ice cubes (if your bananas aren’t frozen, or if you want it extra-cold)


  • Put all the ingredients in the blender.
  • Put the top on tightly. Turn on the blender to medium speed and blend until the mixture looks like a frothy green milkshake, 30 to 60 seconds. (Add up to 1 cup cold water if the mixture is too thick to blend.)
  • Divide the smoothie into 4 glasses and serve right away, or cover and refrigerate up to 1 hour.


To help make smoothies colder and thicker, it’s great to have slices of frozen banana ready to go. It’s easy:
· Peel overripe bananas.
· Use a butter knife to slice them into thin rounds.
· Put the slices in a resealable plastic bag, label the bag with the number of bananas it contains, and freeze until needed.
