This 2-Minute Paleo Kale Pesto is zingy and flavorful, without any dairy, nuts or seeds. Add it to pasta, fish, chicken, veggies and more! It’s the perfect flavor booster for any AIP, Paleo, Vegan meal or snack – add it to your weekly rotation or whip up a double batch and store it in the freezer. 

The peppery flavor of the kale harmonizes beautifully with the spicy garlic, tangy lemon juice and savory nutritional yeast (for AIP ensure you’re using NON-fortified nutritional yeast – click to read why that’s important), creating a complex flavor combination that can be added to almost any dish.

Use this Paleo Kale Pesto as a veggie dip, cracker or flatbread dip, pizza sauce, sandwich spread, pasta sauce, salad dressing, or anywhere else you enjoy pesto. (Looking for AIP crackers, flatbread, pizza or pasta options? Check out Fully Healthy for some tasty options, easy mixes and more!)

2-Minute Kale Pesto

♥ RECIPE & IMAGES BY: Andrea - Formerly "Hurried Health Nut" ♥ This 2-Minute Paleo Kale Pesto will add flavor to just about any dish.



  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor or high-speed blender
  2. Pulse until desired consistency, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed
  3. To store, drizzle a little extra virgin olive oil on top (to prevent browning) and store in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-5 days. Alternatively, divide among silicone molds or an ice cube tray and freeze. Once frozen, pop out and store in an airtight container, freezer bag or silicone bag in the freezer for 3-5 months. To use, either add a frozen cube straight to a hot dish and toss, or thaw in the fridge until softened
