  • I really don’t like to drink my calories, but this is a wonderful way to get in those greens! I might give it a try!

  • Hi Robyn and Lisa!! I recently got a Vitamix and LOVE it! One weird thing: I find that while I love celery to eat, I don’t like it in juices or smoothies. I also love cucumber and watermelon for adding liquid :-)

    I just got a Vitamix, too, Karen! Still in the box. Tried to find some organic kale yesterday to start the “journey” but no luck. Am definitely going to have to get more adventurous here. :-)

    This looks amazing! I wondered: it looks like you made a lot. Do Green Smoothies “keep” at all? Not forever, but, like, from lunch to dinner? I’m dead sure I’ll be the only one partaking and just wondered if I could do the prep for it once and not waste too much.

  • Robyn says:

    Hi Emily, I usually do make 2 very large portions for me and my husband. At first he would say “oh no” each time he heard the blender going, but once he realized they taste good he’s happy to help drink them. He will save his and drink it throughout the day. I like to drink it right away since the longer it sits, the more Vitamin C it loses. However, if you do save them, it works to put them in a mason jar with a tight lid. When you are ready to get back to it, just shake it before drinking. Otherwise, just use smaller quantities of the ingredients. I feel they taste (and look) best when freshly made.
