Perhaps Tess Masters’ persona has taken control, as that woman is a machine. Otherwise known as The Blender Girl, Tess has been working day and night to develop the most amazing collections of blender-based recipes. Her most recent accomplishment is The Blender Girl Smoothies: 100 Gluten-Free, Vegan & Paleo-Friendly Recipes – a book spin-off of The Blender Girl Smoothies App.
To give you a sip of the deliciousness within The Blender Girl Smoothies, Tess graciously offered a recipe reprint. I chose the “Green Mojito” for its refreshing and healthy summer vibe, and for its ability to transition into cooler months. This mojito green smoothie is spiked with hearty kale and fresh citrus, both of which shine in the produce sections of winter.
Beyond this mojito green smoothie, The Blender Girl Smoothies includes loads of simple, nutritious, inviting blends like Red Velvet Cake, Morning Sunshine, Brownie Batter, Hangover Helper, and Tess’s
famous Tastes-Like-Ice-Cream Kale.
The Blender Girl Smoothies has a brilliant, clean, modern design. It’s full color throughout, but lets the smoothies speak for themselves. No props are used allowing those naturally colorful beauties to pop from the page and giving you all the visual enticement that you need. The sleek design also includes icons to help you quickly identify smoothies that are low-fat, low-carb, high protein, alkaline, anti-inflammatory, gluten-free, nut-free, vegan, paleo, unsweetened, great for weight loss, detox, and more.
This mojito green smoothie recipe fits most diets (from vegan to paleo, nut-free to gluten-free) and is labeled as unsweetened and suitable for anti-inflammation, weight loss, immunity, and detox.

I love mint in my green smoothies. I am weird about green smoothies and I need a “green” flavor such as mint or lime to get past the color. We just added coconut back into my daughter’s diet (she was coconut free for a while) and so I am looking forward to trying this.
I am the exact same way Debra!! It has to be a “green flavor” to look green – maybe we just like our food to look like what it is 🙂
I’ve been on a mojito kick lately…They’re SO refreshing! This will be perfect for breakfast since I believe it’s frowned upon to drink rum at 9 a.m. in the morning.
Yeah, probably not best to start the day with a buzz 🙂
I’m so into mint right now and I have tons of it ready to pick. I can’t wait to use some of it in this smoothie!
A green smoothie is always the way to go! And I love pineapple in my smoothies! Always so much flavor!
Me too, but it’s been ages since I’ve added pineapple!
A healthy, nutrient packed smoothie! Thank you for sharing the recipe from the Blender Girl’s new book (which I’ve been eyeballing with much interest). I’m going to need my own copy of this book!
I am loving this book! you are right, Tess’ hard work really shines, it is fantastic!
Loving the ingredients here and haven’t done pineapple in my smoothie for some time now. Looks like some great options here.
