This is a great recipe for those looking to add some greens and healthy fats to their diets. The avocado adds a luscious creaminess, and the bitterness of kale is offset by sweet apples, banana, and agave. You can prep the smoothie bowl in batches and freeze the bases ahead of time, then spin a pint in your Ninja® CREAMi™ when you’re ready to eat. This recipe works well with spinach, too, for those who aren’t keen on kale. — Chelven Randolph

Substitution Tip: If you don’t have agave, fret not; honey or maple syrup works just as well.
