This refreshing and healthy vegan papaya kale smoothie is pure nutrition and the perfect way to start off your morning.


  • 1 1/4 cup papaya chunks
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup kale
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup  


  1. Add the papaya chunks, orange juice, kale and maple syrup to a blender. Blend until smooth. 
  2. Serve.


  • If you are looking to make this smoothie even healthier and decrease the sugar, you can substitute the orange juice for water. 
  • My preference is kale for this smoothie but you can substitute the kale with spinach if that is what you have.
