    Used different ingredients. I *really* don't like bananas, so I used a mango instead. Also, I used plain yoghurt instead of vanilla -- so to make it sweeter, I used some pineapple.  -  07 Aug 2008


    I thought this was really good! Never would have thought to put spinach in a smoothie. Nice texture and flavour. Thanks!  -  07 Aug 2008


    The only thing I didn't like about this recipe was that it was chewy. This was mostly due to leaving the skin on the apple. I would *not* do that again. Our blender couldn't seem to handle it, and I was left with a chewy, apple skin aftertase. Overall, good recipe. Not something I would eat every day, but for a once-in-a-while health food snack, it was very good.  -  07 Aug 2008
