Rated 5 out of 5 by Starvel from So good This tastes good. I’ve never added spices to my smoothies before but now I open to it. I used pumpkin spice, skipped the honey, & added only 1/2 tbsp of sugar.

Rated 3 out of 5 by EricaAg from Meh. I don't know if it's the apple pie spice I bought but it this smoothie had way too many spices in it. Also, wasn't sure how much water to add since the recipe says 1 cup (120 mL), 120 mL is only 1/2 cup. I added the full cup and it was too watery! I'm going to try to make this again next week with less spice and less water.
