Mango Mint Smoothie- Low Histamine Diet

Green smoothies are a great way for anyone to pack in nutrition. Since it can be difficult to find recipes with low-histamine foods, I’m sharing my favorite! I created this simple recipe with just a handful of ingredients. This smoothie looks super green, but it’s wonderfully sweet and minty. Give it a try!


Ingredients

1 cup kale (or other green of your choice like chard)

1 cup frozen mango chunks

1 tablespoon mint leaves*

1 cup milk of choice (I use rice milk and avoid vanilla flavoring)

Directions

Blend all ingredients until smooth! A food processor or quality bender will whip it up effortlessly.

*Mint is especially high in salicylates. Just skip it if you’re sensitive. Read more…

Nutrition

TLDR: This smoothie is healthy.

Kale is officially categorized as a powerhouse vegetable, providing an average of 49% daily value per calorie of 17 vital nutrients. The FDA says that mint might help digestion issues like heartburn, which may indicate that it has anti-histamine effect.
