The kale shake is so popular that Joe Rogan’s Twitter followers have retweeted the kale shake recipe hundreds of times:

Joe Rogan uses a Vitamix to blend his kale shake rather than to juice kale. In the YouTube video below, Rogan explains that he believes that blending is better than juicing. Others disagree. Let’s leave that debate for another day and instead look at Joe Rogan’s kale shake recipe.

Joe Rogan Kale Shake Recipe

  • 4 stalks kale
  • 4 celery stems
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 pear
  • 1/2″ ginger
  • 8 oz water (optional, to help items blend together more smoothly)

Blend the items together in a heavy duty blender like a Vitamix (here), BlendTec (here), or Ninja (here). Read more about Vitamix blenders in this article, “Vitamix or BlendTec?

Joe Rogan Makes a Kale Shake on YouTube:

To make a good kale shake, you need to shell out decent money for a high speed blender like a Vitamix, BlendTec or Ninja. With a good blender, your kale, cucumber, celery, and pears are actually blended together rather than merely chopped into fine pieces. A high speed blender will turn kale and bananas into a milkshake like consistency where as a less-heavy-duty blender will turn your greens into a watery salad.

The top-of-the-line blenders are a BlendTec and Vitamix. I watched several YouTube videos and did my homework. The Vitamix and BlendTech are equally good.

Check out my post, “Vitamix or BlendTec?”

I ultimately decided on a BlendTec because it takes up less counter space, but you can’t go wrong either way.

If you don’t want to go “all in” with a blender, a Ninja NJ600 is a good option. The Ninja NJ600 won’t turn your greens into a milkshake but it will blend everything together.

Joe Rogan’s kale shake is good. Yet the kale shake is not the only green shake on the block. Here are some other healthy kale shake recipes:

Smooth Kale Shake

  • 1-2 cups water (depending on the desired smoothie thickness)
  • 3-4 stalks kale
  • 1-2 bananas
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1/2″ ginger
  • 1 peeled lemon
  • 1-2 scoops protein powder (vanilla tastes best; use your choice of whey, caseinegg white or even raw vegan protein)

Sweet Kale Shake 

  • 1-2 cups water (depending on the desired smoothie thickness)
  • 3-4 stalks kale
  • 1-2 apples (or pears)
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1/2″ ginger
  • 1 peeled lemon
  • 1-2 scoops protein powder (vanilla tastes best; use your choice of wheycasein,  egg white or even raw vegan protein)

(The lemon and ginger aid in digestion.)

 Superfood Kale Shake

Like Joe Rogan, I make kale shakes several times a week and am not alone. Many elite athletes and weekend warriors also make kale shakes.

:

When making a kale shake, experiment. Throw in as many greens as you can stomach. When starting off, use more apples and less kale and spinach. As your tastes change from that of a sugar-craving American to someone who eats for performance, use less apples and add more greens.
