Hi –
I would like to know if the majority of your recipes are for 1 serving?

Thank you!

Jason Manheim February 16, 2012

This particular recipe is a submitted recipe but most on the site fill about 2 full glasses or so. which is a single serving for most people.

Experimentation is encouraged. Play around with amounts and find what works for you in terms of quantity and texture.

If it’s too much for you in one sitting, seal the rest up and keep in the fridge no more than 24 hours. Keep in mind the longer it sits in the fridge, the more nutrients you’ll be losing.

Hope that helps!

Can you make these recipes with a food processor?? Thats all I have at the moment.

Jason Manheim January 2, 2013

I have never personally tried making green smoothies in a food processor but those who have written in that have, say it takes a bit more to get it smooth and if you’re not careful will start to heat the smoothie (which you don’t want). Also, you have to make it in small batches.

Experiment and let us know how it goes. Worst case scenario: add some salt and peper; you just made a tasty soup. 😉
