Thank you so much for such an informative, step by step video. My husband and I are newbies, we're learning more and more every day thanks to wonderful people like you! I'm going to try this smoothie for lunch tomorrow.

You are welcome, Linda! We were all new at some point. I learn every day. Enjoy making your own green smoothies and let me know how it goes. :-)

This is so great! Thank you! I will get some sprouts and a mango so I can make this.
I would LOVE to get one of those charts you have!!! Do you know where to get one?
Also, have you heard that vitamix does something bad to the properties? A friend mentioned that it oxidizes it too much and that juicers are better.... I have a vitamix and will continue to use it daily, but didn't know if you've heard of that?

Oh, I notice you didn't mention cacao powder or goji berries. Some of my favs!

Hey Cari!

You can get the food combing chart from my blog link above. When you go to the blog, look for the link above my video. Let me know if you can't find it.

Yes, I've heard that Vitamix could potentially destroy nutrients BUT to do that, you have to run your blender for more than 2 minutes. The motor is 2HP which could heat up the food when blended for too long. That's how you actually make soups in the let it run for 5-7 minutes and you get hot soup as a result.

However, you don't have to worry about that because the average blending time for a smoothie is 15-45 minutes pending on the density of ingredients you throw in the blender.

For juicing, I wouldn't use my Vitamix. I use the Omega VRT330 juicer which is a slow-juicing system that does very little oxidization to the produce. To blend fruits/veggies and then to strain them takes so much time and effort. It's not recommended if you want to get maximum nutrient value from your produce.

And I use cacao powder and goji berries all the time. For some reason, I don't like them mixed in me green smoothies. Cacao and green veggies do not create the best taste combination. I prefer making a chocolate protein smoothie or berry smoothie using goji berries. It's up to you and what you find palatable.

Thank you a million! I just printed out your chart and will post it above my vitamix (posted on your blog too =).
Thanks for the info too. Yes I know what you mean about the vitamix heating food... but it was something else... I will ask my friend to send me exactly what she was referring to. Either way - I love my vitamix! =)

I need to buy a juicer (and a dehydrator, spiralizer, sprouter =). I will check out your model. (I wonder if you posted a direct link through amazon or another store you could get credit somehow...).

I see what you mean about mixing flavors, and now I have your chart! I've just been tossing everything in to get the nutrients. But know I feel well informed. Thank you! Namaste
