I enjoyed this but was caught a little off guard by the first taste. You really have to love grapefruit which I do because that's mostly what you taste and this drink can be quite sour depending on your grapefruit. You also get a nice subtle ginger flavor in the background. Very refreshing and super healthy. Mine didn't come out as a smoothie consistency - more like a really cold juice. I cut the tops and bottoms off the grapefruits then cut the peels off and proceeded to segment the fruit with a sharp knife so as to not put the membranes in. I just prefer it this way and it cuts some of the bitterness. For those who don't like sour you may want to add a bit of sweetener to your "smoothie". Read More

I made my smoothie with peeled grapefruit including the white membrane fresh skinned pineapple one inch piece of fresh ginger peeled 1 tablespoon of chia seeds 8 drops of homemade Splenda 12 oz of water & 2 handfuls of fresh spinach tossed in my 1100 watt Ninja blender and it's fantastic. I could not taste the spinach; the grapefruit & ginger melded well. Read More

Had a nice fresh flavor and felt good knowing how healthy it is. Just one thing... I must not have cut the ginger enough since I had a few "hairlike" pieces in my smoothie. Would love to know how to rectify that. Read More

It was okay at first but it kinda tastes like sour grass. Perhaps this is because I don't know how to measure 3 ounces of spinach but I wouldn't recommend. Read More
