View Full Version : How much to drink?

Hi there --I just made my first green smoothie and it was actually not too bad! Looks horrible-- but tasted pretty good! I have a stupid question though, how much are you supposed to make and drink at one sitting? I made a blender full and could probably drink the whole thing, but my anti-glutton voice says not to. Also, will they keep in the freezer or fridge for a while? I've ordered Alissa's book but haven't gotten it yet. Totally flying by the seat of my pants!!
Not sure if this should be under the recipe threads but took a chance here.

Drink whatever you feel to. They can keep approximately 3 days in the fridge.

Meancat . . . If your smoothie is based mostly on green leafy veggies, then you can drink as much as you want. The calorie content is low, but the nutrients in a smoothie are OUT OF THIS WORLD. If your body is saying "gimme more", then give it! The typical SAD diet is high in calories, but low on REAL nutrition. Your body may be telling you that it needs what is in those smoothies.
So indulge your body without guilt! You're only making yourself healthier.
