Notes

Preparation Tip: Since this shake requires many different vegetables, try cutting up ingredients for multiple shakes at one time.  Freeze the extra veggie and fruit mixtures in plastic bags to keep in the freezer so that the next time you can easily dump them in the blender, blend, and run out the door with a healthy, nutrient-packed meal!
