  • Cook's Notes:
  • If you like your smoothie frozen or colder, you can add frozen banana or mango into your smoothie instead of room temperature fruit. Or you can chill it afterwards if you are patient.
  • If you like a thicker smoothie you can also add almonds or cashew nuts. But then it becomes less drinkable, at least with a straw.
  • You can use flax seeds in place of chia seeds if desired. Use maple syrup or stevia in place of honey if desired.
  • If you have a smaller blender, start with the hardest vegetables and then add them one-by-one until you get your required smoothie-consistency.
  • Be careful if you add chia seeds as they tend to form some jelly around them as they are put into water, so you might be able to eat your smoothie with a spoon if you add too many.

This was very interesting. It had a deep orange color and did have an orange like after taste. What I was surprised by, was all of the optional ingredients. I decided to use them all and in the amount suggested. The lemon juice helped give the citrus taste of an orange, the honey gave the sweetness, and the chia seeds work as a thickener. My mango and banana was frozen, so on the water part I had to add an additional 1/2 a cup for half the recipe. I am not sure what mineral water is, but I used cold spring water. I like having a smoothie that incorporates a vegetable or two. ty

I made this as written, other than I used frozen mango and frozen banana. I had to add more water as well. My husband and I both thought it was ok, but the flavor of the pepper was overwhelming. My children wouldn't drink it. It's a good base recipe, so I think I'll try it again, adjusting some of the ingredients.
