I love mint—its fragrance, its color, and its healing properties. So adding this fresh herb to one of my green smoothie recipes is a no brainer! I especially enjoy this as a post-workout smoothie, since the potassium from the banana helps repair muscle and the coconut water replenishes with natural electrolytes. I’ve been experimenting with Blendfresh raw whole food formulas and love adding the fresh dried fruits and vegetables options to simple smoothies like this one to totally boost the nutrition. Blendfresh Fiber and Probiotic is also an easy way to add these to your diet. Of course these are optional ingredients, as this kale green smoothie is wonderful on its own!
Mint Kale Smoothie
½ cup unsweetened milk substitute
½ cup coconut water OR filtered water
¼ cup loosely packed fresh mint
2 cups kale
1 apple, cored
1 scoop Orange or Green Blendfresh (optional)
1 scoop Blendfresh Fiber (optional)
½ tsp Blendfresh Probiotic (optional)
1 cup ice
- Place all ingredients into the blender in the order listed and secure lid.
- Press Whole Juice OR blend on a Medium to Medium-High speed for 50 seconds.
- Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments! Tag #BlenderBabes and #Blendtec. Enjoy!
