Dr. Furhman "Eat to Live" is a great proponent of the smoothie. My usual blend is leafy green + fruit + ground flax seed: spinach/orange blueberry or apple. The blending makes the greens easier to take in greater quantities. If the green taste is too much, add a little banana. I drink them right away, some times they look funky if they've been in the fridge for the day. I don't like very sweet ones, even though the fruit is whole, with its fiber, but if I don't have any greens I'll use frozen fruit + yogurt + extra fiber. Sometimes I add protein powder (chocolate). I find that smoothies, esp. the green ones, cut down on cravings.
