    i have underactive thyroid n ive heard that diet can help my metabolism so im less tired,anybody recommend a good one?

    I was wondering why the instruction was to peel the cucumber? Mine are homegrown and “untreated”, so would you still recommend peeling?

    • SGS Rawkstar 8.19.2015 at 5:18 am #

      Hi Cath,

      Great question! If you’re using organic cucumbers, go for it, + add the peel. We suggest peeling when using conventionally grown cucumbers.

      Cheers :)

    What size cucumber? How many cups?

    • SGS Rawkstar 6.18.2015 at 6:59 am #

      Hi Gpe,

      It depends on how much you like cucumber? I LOVE cucumber, so I can never get enough, and usually add 1 cup, or a half of cucumber.

      Hope this helps!

    Are there any green smoothie recipe that would be good for people who have year round or seasonal allergies? Thanks

    • SGS Rawkstar 5.5.2015 at 6:17 am #

      Hi Yi,

      Spirulina is reported to help with seasonal allergies + can be a great addition to any smoothie! You can also reach for this amazing green hulk when you’re looking to add more plant-based proteins to your diet. There’s a whopping 65% protein in this super green machine! This natural “algae” will knock your socks off with its high levels of calcium– it has more bone-building power than milk. High in iron and omega fatty acids.

      Find spirulina powder at your local health store or on amazon!

        Thank you for your suggestion. Does the spirulina powder needs to be organic? How much of the spirulina powder would you recommend to put? Does this powder make the smoothie taste bitter?

      • SGS Rawkstar 5.5.2015 at 7:24 pm #

        Hi Yi,

        For starters, a single serving of spirulina powder is 1-2 teaspoons (3-6 grams). As you become accustomed to having spirulina in your diet, you can gradually increase the dosage to 1 tablespoon (9 grams). When adding just a teaspoon or two, you shouldn’t be able to taste the spurlina in your smoothie. We always try to buy organic when we can, but understand that it’s not always possible.

        Hope that helps! :)

    what can i substitute for cucumber

    • SGS Rawkstar 4.20.2015 at 8:11 am #

      Hi Janelle,

      Romaine lettuce + zucchini make great substitutions for cucumber!

    Hey! I have everything but parsley. Can I still go ahead and make this smoothie?

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 2.23.2015 at 1:09 pm #

      Go for it. Next time you are at the store, pick up your favorite herb and you can blend it in next time. :)

    Hey can i use anything else instead of mango And parsley?

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 12.22.2014 at 2:36 pm #

      Hi Aarti.

      Try pineapple & mint. :) Enjoy!

    This smoothy is great. I used only half a lemon. Since I didn’t have celery or parsley, I used 1 cup romaine and 1 cup watercrest. It was delicious!!!

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 9.2.2014 at 7:02 am #

      Wonderful, Carla! Thanks for the feedback! Glad it worked for you!

  12. stephanie 8.11.2014 at 2:36 pm #

    This smoothie is delicious! I’ve become obsessed with ginger and it really has improved my digestive health. I used to suffer from acid reflux daily and now I rarely have any issues!

    I was wondering if anyone has tried this smoothie with kale added? I’d like to add some but I’m afraid of ruining it! Maybe a little won’t hurt?

    Thanks! :)

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 8.12.2014 at 7:09 am #

      Hey Stephanie! Thanks for sharing about your great experience with ginger! :) Try adding half of your leafy greens kale and the other half spinach to start off. :) Ease into kale if you aren’t use to it, also you can try baby kale, it is more mild that full grown kale. :)

    • liz 11.23.2014 at 9:45 pm #

      Awesome I have suffered from acid reflux all my life tired of medication crap and junk gonna try the ginger thing !

  13. Danielle 7.23.2014 at 1:04 pm #

    Love this smoothie! This may be my favorite – I prefer the less sweet smoothies and this one is perfect. I add banana for the kids to make it a bit sweeter for them.

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 7.23.2014 at 8:58 pm #

      Great idea, Danielle! How do the kids like it?

  14. lizette 7.14.2014 at 12:04 pm #

    hi I love to try the mango ginger smoothie, but I am allergic to mangos, what can a substitute for this?

    Thanks.

    • SGS Rawkstar Shauna 7.14.2014 at 4:09 pm #

      Hi Lizette! You can totally sub in whatever you do enjoy – bananas, kiwi, oranges, are good ones. You can also make a combo of these fruits or others you like. :)

  15. Hilly 7.4.2014 at 10:04 am #

    I haven’t seen wheat grass in any recipies…you don’t use it?

  16. Miguel Briceno 5.21.2014 at 7:57 pm #

    Hoy tome mi primer “smoothie” me preocupaba tener retortijones estomacales o deseos imparables de ir al baño, pero todo fue perfecto, mi estomago se porto muy bien, sin ningun efecto secundario. Estoy feliz, le perdi el temor a los batidos verdes, pues francamente tenia muchas reservas sobre su sabor, son DELICIOSOS

    MUCHAS GRACIA CHICAS
    GRACIAS GRACIAS GRACIAS

  17. Stephanie 3.18.2014 at 10:18 am #

    Can ground ginger be used? Are there any major differences?

    • SGS Rawkstar Dan 3.18.2014 at 1:28 pm #

      It can be, Stephanie, though we’d prefer to use ginger paste as the second option :-) That can usually be found near the herb section in grocery stores.

  18. Tiffany P. 1.5.2014 at 1:53 pm #

    I was a little skeptical, but this was delicious! I substituted the celery for kiwi (my celery had wilted :() and put in lemon juice instead of a full lemon, but the ginger and the parsley in this really pops! Thanks for sharing!

  19. Yolanda 10.5.2013 at 6:37 am #

    I tried the Mango Ginger smoothie this morning-Loved it! I noticed a nice minty breathe from the parsley…great recipe!

  20. Merrijo L 8.7.2013 at 9:07 am #

    Hi, I made a parsley, ginger, frozen honeydew, watermelon, and unsweetened almond milk today. Pretty tasty. Love your smoothies!
