I made this and it was delicious!

But it would really help if I knew the nutritional information.

Kind regards,

Kelly - April 1, 2019

How much and how often should you drink this? Is it something that you would want to drink for a certain number of days and then take a break from it?

    Donna Harrison - April 1, 2019

    Hi Kelly, I personally drink this once every two or three weeks, it’s a very powerful smoothie! Balance and variety is always best when it comes to nutrition.
