It tastes great with the silver beet being a very subtle flavour.

Depending on how much water you use it’s more like a juice than a smoothie, and each of the flavours comes through to make for a green juice or smoothie that is filling, subtly sweet, and very refreshing. I found one glass (around 250ml) kept me full all morning.
