When you have been drinking regularly you may choose to increase the volume of greens. It’s best not to add too many greens too quickly, otherwise you may not enjoy your smoothie. * Rotate Greens - there are small amounts of alkaloids in greens so mix it up to ensure they don’t accumulate in your body. * Remember making smoothies is like mixing playdough colours.
