Summer Drink: Jugo Juice Mighty Kale Recipe

Happy Summer to everyone! Here in Vancouver, it's feeling a lot like summer and my mood is definitely up there with my dear Mr.Sunshine! Since it's summer, it's time we start working on that healthy body of ours to prep ourselves for the amazing summer to come!

For those in North America, you might have tried Jugo Juice and for the past year, their "Mighty Kale" juice has blown up all over the place and I am here to provide the recipes for this healthy drink! My rendition of this drink is not a 100% dupe but it's at least 90% there and tastes just as good.

So let's get going!

Mighty Kale Recipe

I didn't have any kale at home so I used spinach as a substitute. I would recommend getting baby kale and/or spinach from your local grocery store. The pre-washed ones are better only because you can skip the step of washing your greens.


  • 1 handful of baby spinach and or baby kale 
  • 1/2 cup of Mixed Fruit (I recommend going to Costco to purchase a large bag and pick the blend with peaches, mangoes or pineapples) 
  •  1/2 cup of orange juice 
  • 1/4 cup of apple juice 
  • Water if it's too thick 

  1. Put your frozen fruits in first, then greens, followed by your juices.
  2. Use the crush ice mode on your blender to break down the frozen fruits then gradually move into the chop, puree then liquefy mode. 
  3. If you feel it looks too thick, simply add more juice or water to your smoothie. 
  4. Pour it into your favorite cup and away you go! 

I just saved you $7.00 for a smoothie!

Did you know? Frozen fruits contain just as much nutrients as fresh fruits, in fact frozen fruits may contain even more nutrients than your fresh fruits because they are picked and frozen right when it's fully riped! Even though fresh fruits are "fresh", they've most likely traveled in trucks or cargoes for at least a month before they reach your local grocery store! So how "fresh" are these fruits? If you have a local farmers market nearby, those are guaranteed a better option than to frozen fruits! For smoothies, I prefer frozen fruits because they act as ice as well to give you that slushy, smoothie texture.
