Blend on high for a minute or two until the dates and kale have been completely incorporated.
Pour your smoothie into a cup and mix in the remaining green tea.
A word of warning. Don’t fill your smoothie maker up with boiling hot tea. It’s either going to shatter the glass (if you have a glass jug) or it’s going to come wushing out with a tonne of pressure when you open the lid after whizzing things up. Check if your smoothie maker or blender can take warm or hot liquids.
