I really liked it. I gave some to my younger brothers though they didn't like it. But my mom really enjoyed it. I estimated on a lot of the measurements but it came out fine. I don't think age really mattersI am I never actually thought of adding ginger to smoothies. But it really enhanced the flavor. I didn't have any orange juice so I put a few teaspoons of lemon juice instead. Than more water. I thought it looked a bit watery so I looked for ice in the freezer. But I couldn't find any do I added an extra banana. I was really satisfied with the results and I am definitely going to make it again. Read More

Meh. I really wanted to like this smoothie but the actual color is not vibrant green as seen in the profile picture and the flavor is just ok. I followed the recipe exactly but it makes a dull yellow-green smoothie which was a turn off. You can see the picture in the gallery it's the one that does not look appetizing. Read More
