Emerald Smoothie is rated out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by KtyP from Refreshing I made a half recipe and it filled a normal size drinking glass. The celery has a distinct flavor and very nice addition to the flavor. It's low in calories and I will make again for a mid afternoon treat.

A diet restriction in our house is Pineapple. What would be a good substitute for the "green" type drink recipes?
A great substitute for pineapple in green drinks would be oranges, grapefruit or even grapes.

When should protein powder be added in the order of ingredients listed? Thanks!!
Protein powder should be added with the liquid so that it will combine easily.
