Add some liquid. I chose pineapple juice today. Try coconut water instead or some other type of liquid. Water is also acceptable, but may cause separation later on.

Pulse and blend for a little bit to just break up the greens a little. Don't worry about getting it smooth, we just want to make some room for the other ingredients.

Add a banana to thicken it up. I like mine thick, so I used the whole thing. You may want to do half, or a quarter, or maybe you don't like banana so you'll skip it. There's no wrong here.

Instead of ice, add some frozen fruit. I chose mango. Sometimes I choose mixed berries but it's always better to drink a cold smoothie and ice can water it down too much and cause separation later on.

It's not green! Not in color, but there are greens in it. The blueberries fought with the greens and made a brownish color but the taste is perfectly fine. Later it turned purple.

Pour your drink in a glass and enjoy! Have as much as you can stomach. If this is your first time, don't force yourself to drink it all in one go.

Save any left over for later.  Try out different combos of greens and fruits to find your favorite. You can also add in other things like bee pollen, probiotics, and spirulina. Experiment & have fun!
