Notes

Storage: This green smoothie is best consumed straight after blending. 
Alternatives: If you feel adventurous and you want to try other options, you can experiment with some common substitutes.
Equipment: I make my smoothies in a cheap blender and it works incredibly well. If you can splurge on a Vitamix, I am sure you'll get even better results but I am a bit happy to keep things on a budget.
Nutritional values are just an estimate based on an online nutrition calculator and on two servings. It will vary based on the specific ingredients you use.
