Mango Passion Fruit Smoothie

This mango green smoothie gets bright tart flavor from frozen passion fruit, and inflammation-fighting benefits from fresh kale. Dates add natural sweetness without added sugar. While cilantro may not be a typical smoothie ingredient, we love the herbal notes it adds to this smoothie. Feel free to leave it out if that’s not your thing—it’s just as delicious without.

Active Time: 5 mins
Total Time: 5 mins
Servings: 2


4 cups kale, stemmed and roughly chopped
2 cups frozen mango chunks, thawed slightly (see Tip)
1 cup frozen unsweetened seedless passion fruit cubes
1 cup whole-milk plain yogurt
½ cup water
3 Medjool dates, pitted
1 sprig fresh cilantro (optional)


Add kale, mango, passion fruit, yogurt, water, dates and cilantro (if using) to a blender. Blend on medium-low speed, adjusting speed as necessary, until well combined and creamy.

To make ahead

Refrigerate in a covered container for up to 1 day.


Run cold water over the frozen mango to take the chill off. It makes it much easier to run the blender.
