    Thank you. I won't add raw rubarb as it is too tart for me and I am a bit worried about the oxalic acid in it. I just Krill oil instead of fish oil so I won't add the flaxseeds but for the rest I often use those ingredients together. I just freeze my over ripe bananas and use those instead of ice water. Also I just mostly frozen berries in my smoothies. I am glad that you dont add agave or or syrups because I think that is an overkill of a really good smoothie. Thanks for sharing.
