    Hi, would this recipe still work if I tried the formula 70% fruit, 30% veg? I made it and I can still taste the greens. Thanks!

    Can I use broccoli instead of spinach

      Hi Laura,

      Of course! Adding broccoli to any green smoothie makes it a tasty health monster powerhouse, + a great source of calcium!

    Is there a green smoothie that is good for weight loss and is there one that uses orange juice in it?

    Is cantaloupe a good ingredient? Should it be used as a substitute for something else or can it be used on its own?

      Hi Consuela,

      We love blendin’ with melon! Find out why here…

      Looking to add cantaloupe to Beginner’s Luck, we suggest experimenting and finding what combination works best for you! If it was us, we would blend 1/2 cup of melon + 1/2 cup of cantaloupe!

      Cheers! :)

    This was my first green smoothie that I made and tasted. It was surprisingly good. It was mild tasting and slightly sweet.

      Hi Krista,

      We’re so excited to have you blendin’ with us, and love hearing you enjoyed your first green smoothie! Beginner’s Luck is our favorite recipe for those just startin’ out. What smoothie recipe are you thinking about for smoothie #2? Strawberry, Banana, + Blueberry is another one of our favorites…

    I made a smoothie that was not so smooth. Can you tell me what I might have done wrong?
    2 c greens (garden lettuce) blended with 8 oz rice milk. The I added 1/2 c each of raspberries, blueberries and lemons. All 3 frozen. I also added 1/8 c ground flax meal in with the frozen fruit. What could I have done to get a smooth consistency? I have a Ninja.

      Hi Erika,

      Thanks for reaching out! To ensure you’re getting a smooth consistency we suggest blendin’ your leafy greens + liquid base first, then adding your remaining ingredients. It’s possible the addition of flax meal adds a slightly gritty texture, we love adding flax seed oil to our smoothies to avoid this.
