You know that whole hatred of airports thing I told you about, and how Jamba Juice is their one saving grace?

Well, my affection for this smoothie shop has grown even greater recently with the addition of their green smoothie line. No longer just fruit, they also pack a vegetable punch (ftw)!

My absolute favorite green smoothie at the moment is their ‘Greens and Ginger’ smoothie. You guys, I’m straight-up obsessed.

I think you know where this is going. Let’s make a smoothie!

This smoothie is a 1-blender situation, requiring only 5 minutes and five ingredients to prepare!

Because peaches are out of season here in Oregon, I relied on organic frozen fruit. It’s not quite as good as the fresh, in-season stuff, but I couldn’t wait, and it was enough to satisfy my cravings for this super delicious smoothie.


  • 1 cup ice (optional)
  • 2 cups packed kale (fresh or frozen // organic when possible)
  • 1 cup ripe frozen mango cubes (organic when possible)
  • 1 cup ripe frozen peaches (organic when possible)
  • 1 Tbsp minced fresh ginger
  • 1 1/2 – 2 lemons or limes, juiced (1 1/2 – 2 lemons yield ~1/4 cup or 60 ml juice)
  • 1 1/2 – 2 cups filtered water
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup (optional // depending on the sweetness of the fruit)


  • Add ice to the blender first and crush. Then add kale, mango, peaches, ginger, and lemon juice (starting with one lemon (2 Tbsp or 30 ml juice) and working your way up) and 1 cup water (240 ml) to create. The amount of water will depend on how many of your ingredients are frozen.
  • Blend until smooth, only adding water a little at a time as needed and scraping down the sides/mixing as required.
  • Once well blended, taste and adjust seasonings as needed. If too tart, add more fruit or a little maple syrup (optional). For more zing, add ginger. And for more acidity, add more lemon juice. To make it thicker/colder, add more ice. Blend as needed.
  • Divide between two serving glasses and enjoy immediately. Best when fresh, though leftovers will keep covered in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
