Collagen Kale Smoothie Recipe
By Dr. Josh Axe
March 30, 2023
Kale is one of the most amazing superfoods. It’s packed full of vitamins K and A, minerals copper and manganese, and so many others. Combine it with some frozen fruit and our collagen powder, and then you get even more of a nutritional punch — collagen from four real food sources (beef, chicken, fish and eggshell membrane) and tons of nutrients.
With clinically studied ingredients, our Multi Collagen Protein boasts the ability to improve appearance of crow's feet after 28 days†, reduce knee stiffness in a week† and promote healthy hair thickness and growth while reducing hair breakage†.
While some folks get overwhelmed by the kale flavor in typical green smoothie, this one uses fruit and coconut to compliment the kale. Try this Collagen Kale Smoothie recipe and easily get of these nutrients and collagen peptides into your diet today.
As you see below, this is one of the healthiest smoothies you can make, in part because kale is a legitimate superfood loaded with nutrients. The kale plus the fruit in the recipe makes for nearly 100 percent or more Daily Value (DV) in vitamins A, C and K.

This is not complicated. Simply add all ingredients to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth.
The recipe calls for baby kale leaves, as they have more flavor and blend more easily than older, heartier kale. And you definitely want to avoid the big, thick stalks of fully grown kale.
Frankly, nearly any fruit will work well in this recipe, but pineapple, strawberries and peaches are three of the best. Why frozen? Well, mostly because frozen fruit makes the consistency just perfect and easy to consume with a straw.
If the smoothie isn't liquidy enough for your taste, add a little more water and re-blend.
Also, try my collagen-based chia seed smoothie bowl for a nice switch-up.
