Notes

To prevent your smoothie from turning brown, avoid dark colored fruit (blueberries, blackberries, etc.)
For milder tasting green smoothies, stick to spinach and kale. For smoothies with a spice, try adding arugula.
Play around with the proportions of fruit, greens, and liquid to suit your individual preferences. 
For a protein boost, try adding 3 tbsp hemp seeds.
