    Am I crazy? I don’t see the measurements and really wanted to make this one. I’m a horrible “eye-baller” so making this without it will mess me up lol.

    Hey so i am a beginner. And i was thinking can i switch milk for water? And take out the pineapple for this one. Will it taste good if my smoothie doesnt have pineapples? Thank you very much :)

      HI Althea,

      Thank you so much for reaching out! Of course you can swap in milk for water in our Beginner’s Luck recipe! We love switching up our liquid bases. Just so you know, we personally don’t include dairy in our recipes. It’s the #1 undiagnosed food allergy + can be pretty tough on your digestion. So instead we reach for dairy alternatives like almond milk, rice milk, + coconut milk. Learn more about our favorite liquid base options here…


      Not a fan of pineapple? Or don’t have it on hand? No worries! Just double the amount of mango for a delicious mango-rific green smoothie!

      Cheers :)

    Hey there,

    Just a quick question regarding making this great tasting smoothie and storing leftovers… Can I safely make a week’s supply and leave in the fridge as needed or do I have to freeze it? How much of the vitamins do I loose by pre-making a batch every Sunday for the week ahead and leaving it in the fridge?

      Hi Bridg,

      Great Question! Some people believe you need to enjoy your green smoothie right away to reap it’s nutritional benefits. It’s our belief that green smoothies will keep for up to two days in an airtight container in your refrigerator. Adding a little bit of lemon juice will also help preserve all of their green goodness! If you want to pre-blend a week’s worth of smoothies, you can freezer your pre-blended smoothies, just thaw them in the refrigerator overnight when you’re ready to enjoy. And separation is completely natural, so give your smoothie a quick shake before enjoying!

      Hope this helps answer your question!

    Made this one yesterday and although I’ve made green smoothies before, I was a bit hesitant about this one because of the added water. But I have to say that, even though my blender died halfway through making it and I was forced to finish it with an immersion blender, it was a delicious, fresh and thirst-quenching smoothie. Loved it! 😀 As soon as the new blender has arrived, I’m gonna make this one again!

      Hi Vreni,

      Oh no, we’re so sorry to hear about your blender, but we love hearing your love for our Beginner’s Luck recipe! What blender did you purchase to replace it?

    Hey guys
    This is a very exciting website!!!
    I have a question regarding the fruit: obvs fresh fruit and vege is ideal but could you use pineapple from a can if the real thing isn’t to be found (I live in Denmark and we don’t necessarily have a steady supply of all exotic fruits during winter/it can be quite expensive)?

    • SGS Rawkstar 9.23.2015 at 5:49 am #

      Hi Ceilie,

      We’re so excited to have you blendin’ with us! We definitely understand that certain fruits are not always available, thats why we personally love reaching for frozen fruit! Or we stock up + freeze our own while our favorites are in season. While you can definitely use canned fruit, just be aware that even those stored in their own juice contain additional sugar. You can always swap out ingredients for ones that are more available to you! Our recipes are here to inspire you, so please don’t feel like you need to follow them to a T.

      Cheers :)

    I absolutely love this site, and all of the smoothie recipes I’ve tried so far! It would be so great if you could add the nutritional information for each of them, too. It would be nice to know how much protein, sugar and carbs are in each :o) Thanks for an amazing site, Ladies!!

    Hi!!!!! I was looking for recipes for green smoothies and I just love your website. I would like to loose a couple of pounds and I was wondering if I could take this smoothie in particular for that. I know you recommend like adding oats, avocado, almond butter, chie seeds, but I would like to know if none of those ingredients can cause me breakouts, I have suffer from severe acne since I was like 11 years old and I don’t know if adding those kinds of ingredients would be a trigger to my skin. Definitely I want to start and eating healthier!!

    I’ve just started making smoothies and found your site by chance. What can I do to substitute bananas in my smoothies. Not allergic, just have never liked them. Your help would be appreciated.
    Thank you…
    Just getting started~

    I am on week 2 of green smoothie breakfasts and LOVING it! I really enjoy the recipes found here, but is there a place where it lists the nutritional information for each of the smoothies?
