Can you drink a 1 day old Smoothie ?

I made a green smoothie yesterday, couldn't finish the whole thing so I put it in the fridge and forgot about it.
So this morning, I saw it and thought...."Can I still drink it ?"
I smelled it, smelled fine
It was still green, not brownish.
I'm aware that everything in the smoothie might be oxidated or might have started to breakdown even ?
But I wanted to drink it anyway,
so I added 1 banana and 1 aloe vera to the smoothie and put it in the blender for a short while.

So.... Can you drink a Smoothie leftover that's been left in the fridge for 1 day ?
Is it safe ? Are the enzymes still alive ?
I dunno ;p
But mine was still ok looking and tasting, so I drank it anyway :)
I'll try to always finish my smoothie right away next time :D

I think it is ok- not as good as fresh- but I heard the Raw Family say that within 24 hours. I think..

I've read that you should drink them right away, but if you can't - freeze it instead of the fridge. (I've never tried this myself though) said...

Hi Debra and Aubade...
Thanx for the comments, I'll try to always drink it all up... I always seem to make too much though :)
