    This is one of the most unusual smoothie recipes I’ve seen! I’m going to have to make it just to see how it taste like pistachio ice cream. It certainly can’t get much healthier! Great post ladies!

    @mjskit, Thanks! You will just not believe how delicious this smoothie is. It does contain a fair bit of banana, cashews and agave….so this one is all about the fun!!! LOL! But a fantastic way to get greens into kids nonetheless!

    I’m dying to try this this Tess! I don’t eat pistachios anymore, but love them… especially pistachio ice-cream. Oh how I love that taste! This will be my breakfast tomorrow for sure!

    I read this and was very skeptical. But read the comments and saw many positive comments on the taste… So …I tried it. WAS very very yummy!! Tastes like a dessert! I even shared with my 7 & 8 year olds and they LOVED it…. although they call it ‘Swamp Goo’….. lol They even asked for seconds…and said it (the recipe) was a ‘keeper’ :)

    @Debby, LOL! I LOVE this! Yes! Kids absolutely go bananas over this smoothie. It is such a fantastic introduction to drinking kale. Thanks for your lovely comment Debby.

    @The Blender Girl, Made it this morning! :) Love it. I think I threw a bit of extra kale, because personally, I’m used to cramming my smoothies full of greens, but I can get the ice cream flavor reference! It’s lovely and creamy and sweet.

    @Alta, LOVE the extra kale! You can never have too much kale. But, yes, too much will throw the balance of flavours off a bit :) Alta, you are just so lovely. I CANNOT wait to meet you at Nourished!!!

    I’m so excited to try this. A friend of mine made coconut kale ice cream with dates and it was fantastic. Ever since then, I’ve been a huge fan of kale in smoothies and “ice cream”.

    We just made this! I highly recommend a GOOD blender. Mine is pathetic and would not process the Kale. Thankfully, my mom just got a Vitamix and it made quick work of it. I also had extremely ripe bananas (very brown spotted – good for alkalinity though!) and would not recommend 3 TBSP of Agave if your bananas are really ripe. I personally think it would be too sweet – we used 2 and it was perfect. I will definitely be making this again, thanks!

    @alissabeth, Thanks for that great feedback and tips about the blender and the ripe bananas Alissabeth. That will be really helpful for others! Enjoy :)

    Hi dear! Very nice presentation! Pistachio ice cream so amazing I just love to eat this ice cream. I make this item often because my family is very demanding for this food item. It’s really a good strive. Thanks a lot for sharing. :)

    @Deanna, I know!! You really do need a high-speed blender to process the kale properly…..I am manifesting for you Deanna :)

    OMG! Wow! I stumbled on this recipe through David Vanadia’s website, and having recently befriended a raw foodie, had heard about kale smoothies. Not a word about them tempted me to try one until now. I mean, drinking kale sounded even worse than having to eat it ;) But, pistachio ice cream?? I just tried it (halved the recipe and substituted the agave nectar with a 1 gram packet of stevia), and… I’m in love! Who knew anything dairy and sugar free could make such creamy love to a mouth like that!! I highly suggest EVERYONE try this!!

    @Gabrielle, I am SO pleased you tried this Gabrielle and are experiencing the sweet kale love! LOL! Enjoy every sip :)

    I love this recipe…make it 3 times a week or more. Add 1/2 cup of chickpeas for some good morning carbs–cannot taste them at all.

    @Amy, I LOVE that. Glad you have been enjoying this smoothie.

    I Iive near Sun Cafe and an a big fan of theirs and green smoothies in general, so I was excited to try out your recipe. So delicious! I sub date syrup and dates for the agave most of the time and have never added the salt as I’m trying to limit my intake. I really think the ginger and vanilla give it that extra special taste. I like to use whole vanilla bean powder when I have it because it is so decadent. Thank you again! BTW, I’ve shared your recipe around the internet many times over since September. :-D
