This chocolate green smoothis looks delicious! I was wondering why use the potato starch? I do not have it on hand so can I leave it out and still get the taste/effect you’re going for? Thanks Louise!

    Yes – you can omit the potato starch (it’s a type of resistant starch that’s good for building up good gut bacteria – that’s why I put it in).
