    Hey! Can you use orange juice in the smoothie if you're just starting out? Does that negate the good effects of the greens?

      I have never tried orange juice mixed with greens. I would try water first. You don’t need orange juice. if you want to throw an orange in I would say go for it!

      people always ask me if they can use milk. Milk + greens is not the best combination.

  2. Agreed you don't need the orange juice at all. I started throwing in a handful of spinach and you would be surprised at how quickly you will add several handfuls.
    I don't like eating manufactured protein powder so I use greek yogurt as well to make it a breakfast.
