Tips for Using Vegetables in Green Smoothies

This is great. I love smoothies and know people who swear by putting in a few greens!

To veg out may help out the waist-line. A smoothy way to ge there.....


Good idea!

I use a juicer for this too. Really like my juicer! Bit of a pain to clean though.


ive heard of this... but always been a bit weary!! might have to try it now!!

Also, the article says "anything goes. You can add anything you like, as long as the vegetable or fruit is fresh". Is this true? I thought it was bad to eat raw potatoes, and I can't imagine kumara being very nice either.


what sorts of fruits are best to add with vegetables - im always using apples and dislike bananas
