This vegan green smoothie was SO TASTY when I first tested it, that I knew we had to include it in one of our free superfood smoothie challenges!

The almond butter and dates add the perfect caramel flavor, it’s hard to tell it’s a kale green smoothie!

Katja enjoys this delicious high protein green smoothie post-workout.

Blender Babes found Katja Glieson first on the live streaming app Periscope.

We not only watched her make several vegan green smoothie recipes, but we also watched the trials and tribulations that young women face as they follow their dreams.

We felt a need to share Katja’s favorite vegan recipes as well as her inspirational story with our community. In the meantime, we highly recommend watching her as Frozen’s Elsa in the viral music video, Princess Rap Battle.

A high powered blender, such as a Blendtec or Vitamix, will easily pulverize sticky dates and kale.

If you don’t have a power blender yet don’t worry, you can also make this green smoothie recipe in a “regular” blender using these tips!

Be sure to join our community for more green smoothie recipes and if you try this, please let everyone know by rating it in the comments! 🙂

  1. Hi, BlenderBabes!

    Quick question: is it okay to use diced FROZEN mango instead of fresh? Sometimes I cut up my bananas and other fruit and freeze them in ziploc baggies or in containers, and just grab what I need from the freezer and throw it into my smoothie. Does that work for this particular recipe, or do I need fresh mango for the proper consistency?

    Thanks! It sounds yummy!

    1. Yes absolutely! Frozen fruit such as the mango and/or banana will make the smoothie thicker. You definitely can then omit the ice. HAPPY BLENDING! 🙂

    We’ve been making frozen fruit pops by just blending whatever fruit and spinach we have and freezing in popsicle shape. Great on a hot night.
