Hi guys!<br>
So I have been making lots of green smoothies lately and want to get my boyfriend to drink one each morning before he goes to the office (he is really bad about eating breakfast). I was wondering if I could make 2 servings in the afternoon and refrigerate his serving for breakfast the next day??? Will it still be good?<br><br>
Thanx!

We've done that. it seems fine the next day--but it has thickened up quite a bit so i either eat it with a spoon the second day or add a bit of water and stir to thin it.

if you add flax or chia seed to it, it will definately thicken up, which I don't like. If you leave it out of the serving to be stored, and then add it to the one being consumed, it won't be as thick.

Weird, I was just wondering about this. I'd quite like to take smoothies on the tube with me into work but I don't want to be waking everyone up with my blender first thing in the morning. I was thinking about making a lot in bulk and jus pouring it out every morning but I'm really picky with smoothies and like them to be completely fresh. My main issue is if it all separates, does this happen much? Shaking it does me no good if I've already seen it separated <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

I think separation is just a natural occurance depending on the weight of the food used, and liquid used. how about if you put it in an opaque drinking container, so you can't see it separated, and then just shake it before drinking it?<br><br>
Victoria boutenko, the author of Green Smoothie Revolution and Green for Life, makes up a couple of liters at one time, then drinks throughout the day.

Yeah I just need to get hold of a large shakeable container that will fit in the fridge <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> it would work though...

Ooh maybe one of those metal water bottle would do the trick <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thinking.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":think:">

make sure it has a big enough opening so you can clean it well, or that you have a bottle brush. You won't be able to get your fingers or hands down one of those <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Yay! So glad I saw this thread...I just decided I want to jump on the smoothie bandwagon! I'm googling recipes and I wanted to know if I could make a smoothie in the morning and bring it to work so I can drink it throughout the day...apparently, I can! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/dancingbanana.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":nana:">

Ack good point! I've already ordered an enormous one, but a bottle brush should do it!

Yeah--ours has flax in it--explains why it thickens up. Today's smoothie was:<br>
cherry juice<br>
apple<br>
orange<br>
banana<br>
hemp<br>
flax<br>
cinnamon<br>
kale<br>
frozen strawberries<br>
frozen pineapple<br>
YUM!

The fridge smoothie was a success!<br>
Bf just had to add half a cup of soy milk and half of juice and it was perfect again <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I tried it with frozen fruit and with non frozen and with a combination of both.<br><br>
Ive decided to reverse my eating to fix the problem. Have my breakfast smoothie for dinner fresh and my dinner for breakfast :)
