I have been going through recipies and can't imagine the amount of fruit & veggies some of them call for.  ie - 1 banana, 1 orange, 1/2 cup pineapple, 1/4 cup almonds, 4-5 strawberries, handful of spinach, water and ice.  If I put all this in my tall cup, it would start leaking within 10 seconds after blasting.

Our recipes are designed to be an outline since all fruit and veggie shape and size vary. As long as you are getting a good balance of all the ingredients, you will still be receiving all the health benefits outlined.
I have found in my personal experience that the liquid level is what counts for leaking. My fruits/vegetables usually go a bit over the max line. I keep the liquid level just below the max line, and all is fine.....
Often times the recipe doesn't fit but I don't let that stop me. Instead I do two batches and then poured into one of those tall Nalgene bottles that you get at GNC or other active sports stores and it does just fine try that instead
