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!
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)
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…
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.
