Rated 5 out of 5 by Camp Nanny from Great product This recipe I s a keeper. Love the spices. I didn't have Apple pie spice so I used a pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HollyD from This was YUMMY! My girls and I think this was really yummy! But I will probably make it with less apple pie spice next time so the fruit flavors can shine through a bit more. We used a pink lady apple as our apple and fresh cranberries instead of frozen.
