  • So I tried the smoothie using water and no additional sweeteners. Still as good, and a great alternative to the original. Good for the diabetics, such as myself, out there.

  • We use (and suggest) fresh! :)

  • Always fresh it works better.

  • Interesting post. I a similar combination two days ago from a book I bought. It is a really delicious. I didn’t have kale so I used spinach. The book didn’t mention chia seeds, but I added them because they are so healthy. Keep the recipes coming!
    I also freeze my bananas. It makes the smoothies so much better.

  • I always add kale to my smoothies, and most of the time I use frozen. Either packaged frozen, or bought fresh and then frozen myself for later use. Technically it doesn’t make any difference in the end product, the Blendtec can handle either equally well.
    For some reason packaged frozen produce has a worse reputation than it deserves. Unless you grow your own produce or buy it from the farmers market and know that the farmer you bought it from just picked it, and you process it right away, you have no way of knowing how much time the "fresh" produce has spent in the farmer’s warehouse, then on the road, then in the store warehouse, then on the shelf, i.e. how fresh it really is at the time you actually use it. If you buy it at the grocery store, chances are it is already a few days old and has lost a good part of its vitamins already. Packaged frozen food is usually frozen right after being harvested, in which case it has a lot more vitamins left than the "fresh" stuff. So don’t be afraid to use frozen. And if you buy fresh, and don’t use it right away, you’re better off freezing it. The big advantage of the Blendtec is actually that it can handle frozen just as good as fresh, and as an extra benefit your smoothie is already nice and cool without having to add ice. When I buy bananas, I peel them, break them up into thirds and freeze them. Then I just grab a segment of frozen banana and add it to my smoothie every time I make one. No more bananas going brown and overripe, and less grocery shopping.

  • Yes, it does.

    Blendtec on

  • Does the nutritional info include the "optional" chia seeds?

    lorrie on

  • Yes! Put them in last and decrease the ice – you may even want to omit the ice altogether.

    Blendtec on

  • Can you use frozen mangoes?

    Brenna on

  • i love this smoothie but i a diabetic and the sugar content is very high. is there an alternative to lower the sugar content?

    Antonia Gurrola on

  • Hi, I was wondering the benefits or Mango and Kale togethers. I am familiar with most ingredients but not those two specificaly. I had it it was great!

    Chaz on

  • Is the kale fresh-and-bulky or frozen? This looks good!

    John Hofland on

  • Those are natural sugars eaten with a lot of fiber. Just don’t add the stevia or sweetener. It’s still very good. Eating naturals sugars and high fiber is going to prevent high glycemy
