There are two things I know for sure about my friend Tess Masters. One is that she knows smoothies. The other is that she has an extraordinary palate. Which means when she comes up with a smoothie idea, it’s going to be a winner!

The Green Mojito Smoothie from The Blender Girl Smoothies is a perfect example. Like the mojito flavors of lime and mint? Blend in some pineapple, coconut water, and kale, and you have not only the zesty refreshing taste of a mojito, but it’s good for you too.

Like your power green smoothies? So do I, but not so much the flavor of raw greens. That’s one reason why this smoothie is so lovely, you feel like you’re enjoying a mojito, while you’re drinking kale.

My only change to Tess’s recipe was to add half an avocado to give the drink a smoother consistency. A little ginger can give it some spicy zing.
