Quick Tips:
1. I buy beets in bulk and wash and chop them and freeze them. I keep the green's separated from the roots/ They are quick and easy to use and help make nice cold thick smoothies.
2. I put the chia seeds and hemp hearts in the blended with a touch of water and let them soak while prepping the rest.

I will continue to post new recipes from time to time on Saturday as I experiment with Smoothie and Juice recipes. And I collect mine and favourites from around the web you can find them shared here in a OneNote notebook, there are subsections for Juices, Smoothies, Gluten Free Options and Other.
