    what are you supposed to soak overnight before blending, confused me, lol.

      Hi Vicki,

      We suggest soaking the almonds overnight prior to blendin’. It softens the nut to make blending easier, and it also helps break down enzymes, making it easier on your stomach too!

      Cheers :)

    Can I take out strawberries and still get all the benefits of this smoothie? Also, do I have to change the ratio of liquid (milk) to solid (everything else) after removing a half cup of ingredient?

      Hi Aemy,

      Of course you can remove the strawberries from this recipe! Are you removing the strawberries because you don’t like them, or because of the added sugar content? If you’re removing the strawberries because you’re not a fan, you can always add more blueberries, or sub in raspberries, blackberries, or cherries – they’re all a great substitute for strawberries! If you don’t want to add anymore fruit to your smoothie, I would suggest adjusting the leafy greens + liquid base ratio to match the amount of fruit you’re blendin’ with, or if you’re a big leafy green fan you can always add more leafy greens to make up for the missing berries!

      Hope this helps!

    I use this recipe quite a lot. Usually after I have commuted into work and need a boost.

    My only suggestion for those that are weight training/maintaining muscle mass would be to add a scoop of unflavoured Whey and a sprinkle of glutamine.

    Great work guys.

    Can you use something other than spinach, like kale if you don’t have spinach?

    hey, can you use canned spinach if it has been drained??

      Hi Adam.

      Thanks for the question. We prefer fresh or frozen. Canned items sometimes sits in sugar or added salt.
