There is a whole thread on here somewhere about green smoothies, @Lara Moss . It is in the health and wellness section, and one on the Vitamix in there somewhere, too. Searching is probably the best way to find them, and if you also add my name, then you should find the threads I started. Both juicing and blending are great ways to get that fresh raw fruits , greens, and veggies, and make them more digestible. And WELCOME BACK ! ! We have all missed your friendly smile and informative posts.
