I've tried many of these, but my favourite is blueberry, I don't like the taste usually, but when blended with ice, banana and natural low fat yoghurt, they taste gorgeous, I've also played around with adding other berries and honey and sometimes adding sugar to sweeten it. 


They're a brilliant antioxidant and wash out all the bad toxins from your body as well as freshening your skin, hair, nails and helping your immune system.

Mcashe8- just made the smoothie:) it's soo good, my husband really likes it. Thx!!

Hi! My favorite breakfast is 1 cup kale + 1 apple + 2 oz blueberries + small piece of fresh ginger+ cold water. If I want a "complete" breakfast, I also add 1 scoop of Vega Berries Powder.


My hubby also loves 1 cup spinach +1 banana + 1/2 avocado + cold water.


You can check out the book "Green Smoothie Revolution" by V. Boutenko from your local library for new recipes. Enjoy!

My personal favorite recipe is add 2 cups of spinach with one cup of frozen berries. Then add a cup of diet v8 juice which only adds 10 calories!!! Finally if you want add 2 tablespoons of flax seed and blend! I eat it almost every morning and it's very delicious(:
