We liked it! We've tried other green smoothies from AR in the past that we like better, next time we'll use smaller lime and lemon because that made the smoothie a little too sour for our taste, but I loved the subtle flavor of mint in the smoothie, i'm sure we are going to love it once we reduce the lemon/lime flavor, hence the five star rating.

Too bitter and sour for me. For first timers I would start out with half the mint (5 leaves). You can always add more. Read More

Didn't have any mint and used orange juice instead of the orange. I will make again, great way to get plenty of vitamins. Pretty color too. I've made other green smoothies on here, but this was my favorite. Will be interesting to use mint next time. Read More

This was definitely different. Didn't even taste like an average smoothie but a drink. I made it with and without the mint and both tasted great. Next time if I make it with mint, I would go with half the mint Read More

Just made this for my 10 year old son and he loved it. He especially liked the mint. This is very easy to adjust for your preferences. I substituted coconut water for the water, added a cup of vanilla yogurt and four tablespoons of ground flax seed meal. Thanks for the great recipe! This will make a great pre-game snack. Read More

I made this recipe in my Omega juicer and poured into Popsicle molds for the kids in the morning. One of my neighbor kids stopped by and kept asking me "What smells so good?" while I funneled the last bit of lime and spinach through. She even asked if she could come back in the morning to try one of my "green" Popsicles! Who can say no to that? Read More

Loved this! I omitted the ice cubes because both my banana and pineapple were frozen. Since my pineapple was frozen, I didn't have any juice from the can so I added coconut water. I used a whole orange and half the juice of both the lemon and lime. It was delicious without the need of any sweetener. Update: 07-27-17 I made this again today, I love it! Read More

This is one delicious healthy smoothie! I used frozen pineapple and used the whole lemon and lime peeled and segmented. Just for the health of it I used coconut water. It did taste mojito-ish! Fabulous! Read More
