Smoothies make for the perfect snack or even meal; they’re fast, filling, and full of whatever fruits and veggies sound good to you. Go green with a kale, cantaloupe, and ginger smoothie — round it off with a squeezed lemon for extra zest.

Kale, Cantaloupe & Ginger Smoothie Recipe:

Pure Leaf Iced Tea asked me to come up with a smoothie that was inspired by the farmers market. I wanted it to be seasonal, local, really nutritious and packed with naturally derived sweetness. I added bananas, dates, ginger and lemon to balance out the cantaloupe and the kale and to give it a round finish.


  • 1 cup ripe Cantaloupe, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup Kale, stemmed and coarsely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons Flaxseeds or Flaxseed meal
  • 1 ripe Banana, peeled
  • 1/2 cup Medjool Dates, quartered
  • 1 cup unsweetened Black Tea, like Pure Leaf
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated Ginger
  • 2 tablespoons fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 cup Ice


  1. Place all ingredients in a blender and puree on high speed until smooth, about 2 minutes.
  2. Serve cold.

Yield: Serves 2.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
