    thanks for your sharing your inventive love of kale and smoothie recipes!
    Is so much easier to feel motivated when you watch someone do something rather than read about it only. happy blending!

    • Hi Colleen,

      Messages like yours make the whole endeavor worthwhile, thanks for your appreciation!

    Hello,
    I am looking to start using Kale Smoothies, I just have one question. I noticed your recipes are only for 1 or 2 servings, at most. I was wondering how well a smoothie would keep. It would be better for me if I could make a weeks worth of smoothies and a time and then have them all ready made. Any suggestions?
    Thank you very much

    • Hi Rachel,

      I always think fresher is better. I like kale leaves clipped right off the plant growing in the ground. It’s true that your average blender will only do 24-36oz of volume at most, so you’re pretty much limited to the range of 1-3 servings. However, I think that’s a good thing, because it insures that the smoothie you drink is always pretty fresh.

      My only suggestion if you want to make a week’s worth ahead of time, would be to just triple any of my recipes, and store them in the fridge in a pitcher or multiple glasses (covered, of course). They definitely won’t go BAD; they just won’t be as fresh. Let me know how it works; I haven’t made that many at once before!

    • I’ve noticed that if I make smoothies and leave them they get kindof sluggy and not really very appetizing anymore. One thing I’ve noticed that works is putting the smoothie in a bottle that I can shake. It works better than stirring.

    Hi! So I was wondering if you knew of a smoothie that had more greens in it like kale and cucumber and celery and parsley and cilantro and broccoli? And make it taste good? I have tried some I found online and they never taste good! It’s awful. Obviously fruit helps but nothing I have tried is working. Can you make a really green smoothie? Looking forward to it!

    • Hi Lindsey,

      You could totally make a smoothie with all the ingredients you mentioned and it would be delicious. With the exception, however, of maybe the broccoli. Haven’t tried that in a smoothie yet, because I just like eating it on its own so much. I did read of (and experiment with) a smoothie once that used only cabbage and a couple other ingredients, but it didn’t taste so hot. More experiments required.

  4. Hi regarding kale smoothies
    I have been chopping my fruits and veggies ang making dufferent fruit combos ahead of time in ziplock bags in freezer, I usually add kale , beets and a different fruit for each day of thr week, also I add a piece of lime, ginger, handful of nuts and seeds at the same time in bag begore throwing in the freezer.
    It has been awesome, saves a lot, I throw my contents of a bag in my nutribullet cup with slmond milk or water,

    • Hi Amy,

      Wow, what a cool, efficient strategy. Sounds like it would save a lot of time and effort. Maybe I’ll explore doing that myself and write a post about it someday. Thanks for sharing!

  5. just started doing the juice thing, do you know of a good book that would tell me what is good for things like acid reflux, menopause and other health issues? thanks Tina J

    • Hi Tina,

      I’m sorry, I don’t actually know of a good book for helping acid reflux and menopause through juicing. I wish I did! Anyone else out there in the community have any leads on this?

    Thank You for your great tasty and most of all nutritious recipes! Learning from your experience has added much to my home kitchen preparation options. I was wondering If you could share some ballpark figures regarding Nutritional Facts. It’s a little difficult considering fiber content and metabolism boosting effects, but I’m assuming you have thought about this already.

    • Hi Dustin,

      This is actually a request I have gotten more than a couple of times. Me, I’m a generalist – I like to know that I’m GENERALLY getting good, nutritious foodstuffs in my blended drinks. However I would also like to know which nutrients I am getting, if only to compare said information against the requirements that an average human body NEEDS to have in a given day, and see how the smoothie is satisfying those requirements (or not). I have thought about this, but I’ve also realized that it’s a gigantic realm of study and will take a lot more analysis and time to arrive at reliably accurate figures to cite on my website.

      In sum: I’m thinking about it, and thank you for the suggestion. I will let you know when I start to figure out a system that I feel confident sharing publicly. Thanks for the kind words and I’m so happy that my actions have affected you positively!

    Hi Paul,
    I have recently been making kale smoothies for myself for breakfast with a recipe I made up just out of pure experimenting (kale, non-fat vanilla Greek yogurt, skim or almond milk, frozen mango chunks and blackberries). It’s pretty good, but will get boring soon enough, so I just googled “recipes, kale smoothies” and your site popped up. So many interesting recipes! Not sure if I missed it–do your recipes include the nutritional information (calories, fat, protein, etc.)?

    • Hi Kathy,

      You are a true experimenter, like myself. But you gotta keep trying different things, or else like you say it will get boring soon enough.

      I have not gone to the trouble to post the nutritional information on any of my recipes yet, just because I’m not a certified nutritionist or anything and I can’t be exactly sure what’s in each recipe. However, a lot of people seem to be asking about that lately, so I’m thinking of doing an “estimated nutritional value” report of some sort, just so people have a general reference of what’s present. Would you like something along those lines?

  8. Hi! So glad I found your website. I got a “Magic bullet” for Christmas and I’ve been wanting to make a lot of healthy things in that blender including using Kale and other green healthful things!! So cheers..!! Before this I only knew how to make a smoothie using yogurt and strawberries… lol.

    • Hi Carmen,

      I’m so glad you found my website, too! Have you gotten a lot of use out of your Magic Bullet since the beginning of the year? Do tell!

      Thanks for writing,

    Hi Paul–
    Just made one of your kale smoothie first time for my son. He loved it! and so did I.
    you are right–blend-tech IS the best blender. Thank you for all your effort with these new recipes, you made my life sooooo much easier.

    Thanks again–
    Ginder

    • Hi Ginder,

      I’m super glad that you and your son liked the kale smoothie recipe, and glad I could be of any help. I agree that Blendtec blenders are awesome.

      Thanks for writing!

  10. Vicki on

    Hi I have an interest like Lindsey. Is there a yummie smoothie with kale spinach,parsley, cucumber? What juice or coconut milk or rice milk would be good mixed with them? I have a liver problem and was told eat all greens uncooked can you advise?

    • Hi Vicki,

      I’m not a nutritionist, so I can’t advise you on what to do specifically about organ problems, but I CAN tell you that spinach, parsley and cucumber will very likely be delicious if you combine them with some of the following ingredients: banana for smooth texture and sweetness, fresh ginger for zest and character (and aid in digestion), and either of the two milk types you mentioned. I have been thinking about integrating some non-dairy milk options into my future recipes, so thanks for the reminder!

  12. keira on

    I’ve been told that I should eat kale to help with my iron intake. Sadly I don’t like the taste of it,but I do love smoothies…lol…any ideas??????

    • Hi Keira,

      TONS of ideas. You don’t have to like the taste of kale in order to get it into your system. All you have to do is:

      1. always remember to de-stem it before you put it into smoothies, because the stem is the bitterest part, and
      2. use other smoothie ingredients that are stronger in taste than the kale.

      It turns out that this is easier to do than you think. All my smoothie recipes are guaranteed not to taste like kale itself, because it’s so easy and fun to find and mix other flavors around it!

    • Hi Hanna,

      Thanks for the nice words! I have had readers ask which recipes and combinations of ingredients are best to combat acid reflux – can you answer that, or would you like to do a guest post on the subject?

  14. Hi there, I think your web site could possibly be having web browser compatibility problems.
    Whenever I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in Internet
    Explorer, it’s got some overlapping issues.
    I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Other than that, great blog!
