Kale Kick Smoothie
A punchy fusion of ripe mango, super spinach and enriching kale. Can you kick it? Yes, you can!
Mango, Spinach, Kale
Good for VITALITY
- Beta-carotene found in Kale is converted to Vit A and plays a key role in vision, the immune system, and reproduction.
- Iron in Spinach helps to create haemoglobin, which carries oxygen in your red blood cells to your body’s tissues, and is therefore a great supplement for women, who have a higher tendency towards anaemia and all the associated symptoms of tiredness, low mood and energy.
Blend it with
- All our smoothies blend beautifully with 200ml apple juice, but for something different, try:
- 100ml pineapple juice + 100ml water to ramp up the tropical flavours and boost the vit C content (115kcal)
- 200ml oat milk for a creamy and filling smoothie that boosts your intake of fibre and protein (149kcal)

All of your smoothies are epic but this is my favourite 🤩
Been having lovestruck smoothies for a few months now. Easy to order, swift delivery, so convenient. Great taste, 30 seconds in blender, what’s not to like? Kale kick is a great way to start my day.
Ask us Anything
What should I blend my smoothies with?
You can blend your smoothies with almost any liquid of your choice – we recommend using 200ml apple juice, but for a lower GI option you could use coconut water, almond or oat milk, half water/half juice, pineapple juice, or even a mix of water and Greek yoghurt. There’s a handy little chart here showing you which juice is the best option for each flavour.
How big are the sachets, and the blended portion?
Each smoothie sachet is 140g, and after blending with 200ml liquid you will get a 12oz smoothie. That’s a standard UK size, the same as you’ll get in a café. We find it’s a large-ish portion for an adult, or two smaller portions for kids. Each smoothie has its own ‘nutritionals’ section – for example, see Pash n Shoot here – which gives you the calories per 100g and all the other info you might need.
How long can I keep my smoothies for?
They will keep for up to 2 years from production date in your freezer, but check each packet for its own Best Before End date. If your smoothies have defrosted a little in transit, don’t worry, simply stick them straight in the freezer and they’ll be good to go. A lumpy sachet may take a little longer to blend, so either give it a few minutes to defrost before blending, or a good bash with a rolling pin if particularly lumpy!
Are frozen fruit smoothies good for you?
We pick our fruit and veg at peak ripeness and blast freeze them almost straight away. This means that they retain as many vitamins and minerals as their fresh counterparts. In fact, because fresh produce is often picked when it’s not ripe and artificially ripened in transit with ethylene (yikes!), frozen fruit is actually higher in key vitamins (for example Vit C in blueberries).
Have you also noticed how bottled smoothies seem to all taste of banana? They’re the most common addition to smoothies because they add sweetness, body, and nutrients. We’re obviously a bit biased here, but this means that the problem with ready-made is that there is too much sugar (sweetened fruit juice, sugary frozen yogurt, dollops of honey, all those bananas). So it’s pretty safe to say that frozen packs are healthier than bottled smoothies.
Finally, because we use the whole of the fruit and veg in our smoothies, you’ll get all the fibre in your drink, and therefore a slower sugar release. If you want to lower the GI even further, use coconut water, almond milk or water as your blending liquid. Having a wide variety of different fruit & veg gives our smoothies a depth of flavour as well as nature’s wonderful variety of vitamins, antioxidants and minerals.
Can I recycle the packaging?
Yes of course! You can recycle the cardboard box with your normal recycling, and the little sachets together with supermarket bags. UK law states that we can’t yet use recycled plastic for food packaging, but we’re working on a couple of more sustainable options for the future – watch this space!
