  • We loved this smoothie. I used a left over orange in place of the tangerine. Was a great refreshing drink with BLT for a light supper.

  • Be careful with flax meal as flax seeds become rancid quickly upon grinding into meal.

    DrLynn on

  • I usually use frozen mango in place of the pineapple, but both are good. Like Kathie, I also use a combo of spinach and kale. And one more thing…use toasted flax seeds. Sooo good!

    Matthew on

  • I used a combination of spinach and kale which I had blanched and frozen in smoothie-sized batches. Also I used raspberries rather than pineapple. The color isn’t quite as pretty, but it was delicious and very satisfying.

    Kathie on

  • When you freeze the spinach / kale do you just stick it into a zip lock? How long does it keep for?

    thoroughbredstl on

  • The problem : toasted flax seeds… Like all "oily" stuff (seeds, nuts) the cooking brings some nasty chemical transformation to the fats making them quite harmful for the system !

    Colette on

  • I use this every morning, flax needs to be crushed in order to get full benefits or it just passes through your system. try Spirulina instead of flax seed many more nutritional benefits.

  • Spinach and kale freeze great. They break apart easily to use in smoothies.

    Bonnie on

  • Re: Flaxseed meal…How long will it keep in the ’fridge?

    Karen on

  • interesting. I didn’t know things like spinach and kale could be frozen. Do you use it frozen or thaw it first before putting in the blender?

    Jacki on

  • Spinach and kale can be frozen in a zip-top bag or a container with a lid. The frozen veggies will last for up to 2 months in the freezer.

    Blendtec on

  • Do you have to do anything to your kale before you throw it in the freezer? Or just rinse and bag it?

    Gail on

  • Well omega 3 is good for your body and healthy for your body

    Destyn on

  • You can use the spinach and kale when they’re frozen. Here’s a great post about how to freeze and store green smoothies: http://www.blendtec.com/blo…

    Blendtec on

  • I generally add a little apple cider vinegar or lemon juice to prevent the oxilates in spinach and kale from contributing towards kidney stones…..it doesn’t really impact the flavor…….always delicious!!!

    Shari on

  • Yep, you just need to rinse and bag it. Here’s a great post about freezing and storing green smoothies.

    Blendtec on

  • Should the flaxseeds be grinded before putting in to the blender?

    Melody on

  • Flax meal should be stored in the freezer and used up within a few weeks. If you store it in the fridge, be sure it’s in a air tight container, and used within a few days. Flax will stay longer when it is not meal.

    Blendtec on

  • If clementines are out of season- what can you use

    Sue on

  • No, just put them in as is.

    Blendtec on

  • Hi Vanessa, the calories are per serving. Happy blending!

    Blendtec on

  • Are the calories per serving or the total number of calories? Thanks

    Vanessa on

  • I always put the flax seeds into the dry BlendTech jar first and pulse them for about 15 seconds to pulverize them. Then I add the remaining smoothie ingredients and make my smoothie. This way I get the full benefit of fresh flax seeds and the ground meal doesn’t have a chance to go rancid.

    Peanut Lover on

  • Yes, it should! Another thing you could do is blend up a small batch of flaxseed and keep it sealed in the freezer so you have some flax meal on hand! Hope this helps. :)

    Blendtec on

  • If I use this recipe in my Wildside Jar, will the 2 T flaxseed be ground enough for digestion? I am unable to use the bag of flax meal quick enough and would like to move to using whole flax seed, but wonder if it really grinds up enough with a whirl in the smoothy recipe?

    LALS2B on

  • Yes, it would be a larger quantity in the WildSide+ jar. So just using the flaxseed is probably your best choice!

    Blendtec on

  • Thanks! I only have a WildSide Jar. Seems like I will need to grind a large quantity to work in that jar?

    LALS2B on

  • If I choose to use Flaxseed instead of meal, Does 1T seed = 1T meal?

    LALS2B on

  • I’ve not heard of Spirulina. How does it compare to flax?

    LALS2B on

  • Very tasty. I couldn’t taste the spinach at all and I’m not a spinach fan. My 3 year old son liked it too but I put it in a red plastic cup so the color wasn’t so obvious. I used flax meal instead of flaxseeds since it’s all I could find but I think they’re pretty much the same, just broken up.

    Newtogreensmoothie on

  • Any idea how many grams equal 2 cups Kale? Too many website opinions are confusing. One says that "chopped kale" 100 G = 1.5 cups. I just put handfuls in the blender on a scale for 100 g. Wondering how that differs from "chopped".
