Deep Tropical Vibes Green Smoothie - The First Mess

Deep Tropical Vibes Green Smoothie

Deep tropical vibes green smoothie is naturally sweet and refreshing. Kale hides within the tropical flavours of mango, coconut, and ginger.

Servings 1



  • ½ cup fresh orange juice
  • ½ cup coconut water
  • ¼ cup plain coconut milk yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger juice (see notes)
  • pinch sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3 stalks of kale, chopped
  • 1 ripe Ataulfo mango, peeled, pitted and chopped
  • 1 ripe banana, preferably frozen
  • ice (optional
  • shredded coconut for topping (optional)


  • In an upright blender, combine the orange juice, coconut water, coconut milk yogurt, ginger juice, salt, vanilla, kale, chopped mango, banana, and ice (if using). Blend on high until creamy and smooth. Serve the deep tropical vibes green smoothie immediately with a sprinkle of shredded coconut on top if you like.


  • If you’re sensitive to the taste of kale, I’d stick with two stalks only. I’d also throw a handful of ice into the smoothie as well. A colder temperature/frothier texture seems to knock out the hint of brassica.
  • If you have a high speed blender, a 2-inch chunk of peeled ginger is fine (as opposed to juice). You could also finely grate it with a microplane if you have a normal blender.
  • The best coconut milk yogurts (in my opinion) are Coyo or Anita’s.
