    Hi, sounds delicious, but I’m confused. The dieprections say to blend the orange juice but the recioe list doesn’t list orange juice. Are we supposed to use ok or not? Best, Judith

      Hi Judith,

      Thank you so much for pointing out our mistake! You’re right this recipe does not contain orange juice. We’ll make sure and correct this right away!

      Thanks again! 🙂

    This was great. I could barely taste the banana( which was a plus), and i also added oatmeal to the receipe instead of the chia seeds. it was so yummy. Question how many calories are in this drink?

      Hi Britt! We aren’t sure how many are there. We focus more on counting the nutrients that are going into our smoothies 🙂 Lots of people use My Fitness Pal or Lose It to figure out how many calories are in each smoothie

    I’ve used lots of frozen berries with almond milk and oatmeal and never thought about using Greens and Chia Seeds. The taste is great. Thank you!

    Cherries (blueberries too) are a great way to hide the spinach for your kids! My picky little girl has no idea what she’s really drinking!

      Yes Jocelyn! Berries can be your best friend with picky eaters. 🙂 I used to have to do that with my kids, but know they honestly don’t care what color the smoothie is because they know they taste good. The only thing I am not allowed to put in my kids smoothies is celery. Everything else is fair game. Cheers to our healthy families!

    I’ve been an avid user of frozen berries, but because of this recipe, making me remember how much I love cherries, and how good they are for us, my next bag of frozen fruit will be cherries. Can’t wait to try it!
