I usually do an orange juice base with pineapple and bananas. Yesterday I added some raspberries! For my greens, I use Nature's First Food from rawfood.com
When I do fresh greens, I'll use spinach or a mixed baby green salad mix.
I don't much care for chard; it has a sort of "dirt" taste to it, doesn't it? It's a shame because it's sooo pretty
Pineapple,celery, parsley, greens of whatever variety. Yummmm
Just added Maca powder and just choking it down. Thought I needed to make it more dense, stay with me longer, or just wanted to see if Maca might help me feel better( fatigue from my auto-immune diseases). I made it pretty close to my basic smoothie, and added just maca, no wonder everybody uses it with cacao. Isn't that countering the purpose of the adaptogen? Any other ideas besides cacao? It is so bitter, it smells good, but the taste of the Maca powder reminds me of how burnt hair smells. But....., as with anything I do in my health journey, if it makes me feel better.......
my current GS is spinach, banana, some frozen mango and water. yummmmmy

I have, whay may be, a silly question ?
I keep hearing about strawberry tops, does that just mean the leafy heads of the strawberries that people usually cut off? Because I've been cutting them off out of habit, and if I don't need to I most certainly won't!!!
Spinach with bananas or cantelope and almond milk. Fabulous!
