Sunset Smoothie is rated out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by HelloMichelleLee from Great mix of nutritional and sweet ingredients This smoothie had the perfect balance of sweet and savory and really packs a lot of vitamins and nutrients into one glass. Be careful not to overdo it on the beets and follow the recipes proportions as the strong flavor can easily overpower other ingredients.

Rated 5 out of 5 by torched from This one will be in my smoothie rotation. Per previous review, all ingredients were measured at the specified amounts. The only identifiable flavor was ginger, so be careful to not use too much because it's difficult to compensate for excessive ginger. This smoothie is not sweet, yet it does not taste strictly like vegetables. The contrasting flavors balance each other, making kind-of a neutral taste. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a less sweet tasting smoothie.
