TIPS AND TRICKS
I found that many smoothies required a banana for optimum flavour and texture,not so this one.
Although I wouldn´t reccomend it, this can be made the night before but it will lose its colour.Lemon juice, or a similar acidifier, will help delay this discolouration.and you may need a corresponding addition of honey once you are ready to drink your smoothie.
Add mint to your smoothie if you ever get bored of it! It really changes the flavour!
This smoothie is loaded with phytonutrients, and it´s filling. It is definitely a meal in a glass. When I was testing this recipe I enjoyed every sip and felt very energized for hours afterward.
