food combining
by: Anonymous

I thought combining fruits like bananas with high acid fruits like oranges or pineapple was bad food combining.

******It can be for some, but I have never had an issue with it particularly when mixed in a smoothie with greens. I feel that when you make a smoothie you're combining all the foods into one new food, which digests very well.

How well does it freez?
by: Anonymous

Can I make a week worth of this recipe and freeze it?


******I would not. I would make no more than you can consume in a day. The idea is to drink it as fresh as possible.

Oranges or grapes
by: Nobody Important

Greetings,

I usually use grapes for both liquid and sweetness in the smoothies I make. To make the smoothie smooth, I use banana and/or a little flax seed oil.

I haven't tried this particular smoothie so I can't really rate it.

****I use grapes sometimes too for the liquid portion, but this one uses the oranges, celery and a little water. Give it a try and see how you like it. :-)

Use a blender for this one

Bananas and juicers don't mix.

Yes, this is a smoothie recipe, not a juice recipe.
