Hi, and welcome back. Today we’re gonna make a kale smoothie with blueberry and mint.

I got this recipe from an awesome green smoothie book I just discovered by a guy named Bo Rinaldi, that has an amazing variety of inspiring combinations of fruits and vegetables that you can put together in smoothie drinks.

I’m modifying them slightly so that they turn into kale smoothies, and they’re mind-blowingly good.

Without further adieu, let’s get to the blueberry and mint smoothie-makin’!

Our ingredients today are – left to right – a cup of ice water, a cup of fresh blueberries, a cup of frozen blueberries, a half-cup of cashews – roasted but not salted – some mint leaves, 8 small, pitted dates, and 2 leaves of kale.

Okay: First step – we’re just gonna start throwin’ stuff in. First thing we’ll just put in these blueberries. Fresh and frozen, dump ’em in.

Cashews, ice water, mint leaves, dates, and we’re gonna blend that before we put the kale in.

Now we’re gonna throw in this kale – tear it into chunks – stuff it down in there… and THAT, is the consistency we want.

Pour it into a cup, and enjoy! Cheers.

Thanks for watching, I hope you enjoyed this video, and I hope you enjoyed the odd, yet delicious, and oddly-delicious combination of blueberries, mint, cashews and dates et cetera. Have a good day!

    Man, I tried this and it was really good! The blueberry gave it a complimentary richness to the kale. It was like Hall and Oates. The Captain and Tenile. A natural combo. You should put your videos on youtube and make a channel with tons of meta tags so everyone can learn about your site and get kaleified.

    • Hey Steven, Thanks for the nice comment! My videos ARE on youtube in fact! Wait’ll you see my new recipe with blueberries and beets – it’s so good!

    Mindblowingly good! I think I could actually get my nephews to drink this. Thanks for the recipe!

  4. My wife recently bought a vitamix blender, much to my dismay (it is expensive!). However, in less than a week I have become a complete worshiper of the kale smoothie. Thanks for the amazing recipe. It was mind blowingly delicious.

    • Hi Dave,

      You are quite welcome! Nothing makes me happier than for someone to enjoy one of my recipes.

      It’s true, a good blender is expensive indeed, but when you look at how much it adds to your quality of life, it begins to make some sense. Blend on!

    I made this smoothie this morning. This was my first foray into the world of Kale shakes. Absolutely incredible! I used these succulent Iranian dates (the best) from my local middle-eastern shop in West London. So very very good! I’ll move onto some more savoury recipes next. I like the look of the ginger and garlic one which Joe Rogan makes. This blueberry mint one will always be a fave though! Cheers! Frank x

    • Hi Frank,

      Thanks for the interesting local insight, and I’m glad you are enjoying my recipes! I do try to make them as good as I can. Let me know if you have cool suggestions for flavor combinations in the future, won’t you?

    • Hi Amy,

      Excellent! I’m glad you like the consistency – credit the bananas with that. Thanks for writing!
