I suggest you blend the oil and 1/2 of the leaves, then the rest of the leaves, and finally add the other ingredients.
When I did it all at once, the dryer ingredients gummed up a bit and had to be scraped down by hand. When the leaves broke down, the liquid consistency was smooth and blended nicely.
