RAW Minted kale smoothy! Vegan + Gluten-free!

on 01/10/2014

This afternoon, I made this delicious easy to make, very filling, healthy, power RAW power green minted kale smoothy! Check it all out! 😉 I am on a kale-kick lately, did you notice?




Recipe: For 1 really hungry person or 2 big smoothies!


1 stalk of kale cleaned, big stalk removed, cut up roughly

1 frozen banana

1 big pink grapefruit, peel, white bits & pits removed, cut up

250 ml water

30 smaller green mint leaves, cleaned & torn

2 teaspoons chia seeds


1. Place every ingredient in this order in your Vitamix & blend on high-speed until fully joined, using the tamper to push the ingredients into the running blades. This will take about 10 seconds .

2. Pour into 2 lovely smoothy glasses & enjoy with a thick straw! 🙂 Yum!
