I was so focused on the reviews on this one I didn't even realize I forgot a major ingredient. At least one of the reviews was saying it was hard to blend and they had a good blender. I looked at the ingredient list and did not see a liquid and knew I would have the same trouble so I added 3/4 of a cup of orange juice and then had no problem. I left out the kiwi because I don't care for it. The ingredient I accidentally forgot was the pineapple and it still tasted good. I used store bought shredded carrots per that reviewers suggestions also. I had to use a frozen banana cut up because it was what I had. I ended up adding a packet of Truvia because it seemed like it needed a little sweetening and I don't say that often. Overall even though I tweaked it the final result was good and like another reviewer said it was a great way to hide in a vegetable! Read More

The smoothie was terrible. We used all the ingredients listed We spent about 30 min. Chopping all the fruits and veggies. We were really disappointed on how it all came out. To make it taste a little bit better we added 2 tbsp. and it tasted much better. All in all it was not the best. Read More

Very thick. Next time I will add some water with the ice to thin it out a bit. Unless you have a heavy duty blender I can see this being difficult to blend till smooth. For those that would be using a standard blender perhaps grating the carrot will help. The tartness of the kiwi helps to balance the sweetness from the apple. I like that this does not include added sugar the fruits make it sweet enough. Read More

I added a cup of apple juice to make it blend smoother. I also used frozen banana in place of the ice cubes. Read More

A smoothie with a carrot? Wasn't sure I was going to like that but I did. The flavors blended well together and it made for a nice filling breakfast. I would have liked it a little more on the tart side but that aside a good drink. Read More

Good blend of flavors and an easy way to "hide" a vegetable in a fruit drink. Read More

Good stuff. Didn't have any pineapples so I added 1/2 C of OJ as well as 6 oz of plain yogurt. I liked it enough and so did my 2 yo. I great way to get him to get the benefits of vegetables...so that's good enough for me! Read More

Excellent and filling! But I think liquid was not put on the list of ingredients. Lack of liquid isn't good for the juicer and makes the smoothie/juice easier to drink. Read More

This one is pretty good. I added coconut water so that it would blend and it ended up being a good addition. I would make this one again. Read More
