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.
