Mighty Mojito Green Smoothie


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.

A Mighty Mojito Green Smoothie Recipe from The Blender Girl Smoothies Cookbook

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.

Prep time
Total time
This is a cold-and-flu buster and potent detoxifier, all in one zesty cocktail! The bromelain in pineapple suppresses coughs and loosens mucus, while mint clears respiratory congestion, soothes sore throats, and alleviates nausea. The vitamin C in limes has antibiotic power, anti-inflammatories in kale and pineapple combat arthritis, and ginger boosts immunity, aids digestion, and adds a powerful zing.

  1. 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.

  2. 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!
