Green smoothies are great. I can only offer 2 pieces of caveats at the moment.

1. Watch out for consuming too much of a certain vitamin or mineral. For example, if you focus on super veggies like kale, you'll notice you're getting a lot of Vitamin K. Sometimes you can get too much of a good thing. For men, watch out for possibly overdosing on iron.

2. If you add berries or nuts to enhance the taste and nutrients, watch out for calories. Many people who drink these healthy smoothies report weight gains.
