This tastes good - can't taste the spinach at all. Just apples and cinnamon. I was expecting a smoother consistency but it ended up being a mix between chunky and liquidy. I think this is because there is no banana yogurt or peanut butter to make it smooth. So 5 stars for taste. Of course smoothies are versatile so you can always add protein powder for extra benefits.
I rate this a 5 because of the health factor and it is very tasty. When deciding different variety of healthier snacks this is a great smoothie to make especially for those who are trying to lose weight. This is also a good alternative for a low calorie breakfast. Thank you very much!!
Pretty good I tried a different variation I switched out the apple juice and used vanilla almond or soy milk instead and added a small ripe frozen banana a handful of frozen blue berries and 8 ice cubes. If you have a ninja it will blend pretty fast ( even the ice) This makes it feel like a shake. It's a nice breakfast and it takes a long time to get hungry. This will work with kale too if you're tired of spinach.
When you first look at it you might think Ew! But my advice to anyone who hasn't tried it yet is to give it a chance. It's actually really yummy. You can't taste the spinach or any of the other "yucky" veggies at all. Kids love it. I love it. Also it's pretty healthy too so your kids can enjoy a yummy serving of the veggies that you can't get them to eat otherwise. Try it!
Really enjoyed it but also as an alternative I have also added a cup of orange juice instead of apple juice to give a new flavor.. I used the juice with pulp. I found that helps to mask the spinach flavor as well. My kids really enjoyed it.
I haven't tried many of these kind of smoothies yet but I found it hard to take down. My kids didn't like it at all. I think it would have been better maybe with more ice. Or if the apple juice had been frozen. Wasn't cold enough for me.
I would give it 3 stars because it's healthy but I don't like to chew my smoothies. It was too grainy/pulpy. I have a very good blender (Ninja) but it still had too much apple peel pulp. I used an unpeeled green apple - I think I will try and peel it next time (but I like the fiber and health of the peel). My kids liked the flavor but to get past the pulp I had to convince them that it was just like eating an apple.
Glad I checked this recipe further because I make smoothies in my Vitamix every morning and this one was just as good as those I have tested. I was worried about the cinnamon taste because I am not crazy about it but in this recipe the teaspoon was just fine to give it a little something-something.
