Notes

I use whole feijoas in this recipe, skins and all for maximum feijoa flavor and goodness.  If you really can't stand the skins you can scoop out the flesh.  Your smoothy will have a less strong feijoa flavor if you do this.  
Storage:
This healthy green smoothie is best served immediately after making.  The feijoas in particular will turn brown over time.  Still tastes delicious, just looks a bit less pretty.
