Lemon Kale Pesto

Our Lemon Kale Pesto recipe is a spin on traditional Pesto! This recipe is vegan friendly, has the added goodness of superfood Kale, and takes only minutes to make in your Vitamix.


  • 1 bunch kale or 2 cups packed tightly (without stems)
  • 1 cup pistachio nuts
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 large clove garlic
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice and the zest of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup macadamia oil
  • salt (to taste)


  1. Put all the ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure the lid.
  2. Select speed 1, turn the machine on and quickly increase to speed 8.
  3. Use the tamper to effectively press the ingredients into the blades whilst processing.
  4. Blend for 15-30 seconds or until desired consistency is reached.
  5. Stop the machine and serve.


  • Make sure to always check that the nuts that you are buying are gluten free.
