What a great way to get fruit w/out a lot of extra added calories! I followed the recipe pretty much as is (I even measured stuff!). The only deviations I made were I did not have fresh mint so I used a dash of mint extract I left out the applesauce and forgot to freeze the strawberries (I threw them in the ice in the freezer while I prepped everything and they actually got a little frozen). The mint really makes this! It's a little "frothy" in consistency; I may add some ice next time. I'd considered adding a little Captain Morgan to make it a grown up smoothie but decided not to w/the frothiness. I added some frozen grapes at service and I liked their addition. Read More

Not only is it healthy it is delicious and beautiful! It looks like it has confetti in it so light and refreshing. I used regular applesauce because we didn't have unsweetened. Still turned out great! Other than that I followed the recipe exactly. Read More

This was really good. I used green grapes instead of red since I had some already frozen otherwise all the ingredients are as suggested. I did need to add the pineapple in w/ the applesauce grapes & lime - there just wasn't quite enough to get things going in the blender. I added the stawberries & mint later but decided to blend them smoother than suggested so we could use straws. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I really liked this and will make it again but I could detect the applesauce - mostly texture-wise - in it and that was the only thing I didn't like. Maybe I'll try a little apple juice or pineapple juice next time or blend in some unfrozen grapes. Other than that this was refreshing and tasty! N R Read More

Instead of grapes I used frozen peach slices...apple juice mixed with plain yogurt instead of applesauce...a little honey to taste. It did have a really appealing confetti appearance and tasted good too. Love the mint flavor with the fresh fruit. The second time I made it I used frozen red grapes frozen blueberries vanilla yogurt apple juice honey and mint. I guess the fruit combinations you can choose to use are endless... Read More

This is a really tasty mix of fruits even though it sounds a bit odd. I left out the mint couldn't find any. I also as I usually do added a couple scoops of vanilla ice cream it toned down the lime and thickened it up. The lime seems a bit strong and makes it somewhat tart so if you don't like lime I would leave it out. I thought it was wonderful as is though. Read More

I gave this to my little friends and they thought the mixture was a little applesaucey and didn't like the mint in it. Me and my older friends loved it though. Read More
