Rated 5 out of 5 by Natalie from Great Smoothie! I just bought the latest Vitamix and when i tried this smoothie, it was incredible. The flavoring was nice and good. I usually don't like spinach, but in this smoothie, i didn't even taste it! It is also good for on the go. I would really recommend this smoothie to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Minkie from Love this smoothie I really enjoy this smoothie, it is a really good balance of flavor. I first tasted this at a Home and Garden Trade show and it has become my favorite 'morning' smoothie.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lizzy from Delicious My boys love this smoothie. I have had the same vitamin for over 20 years. I love it. Scared to replace it because it has been so faithful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by barb29 from Best Smoothie ever I bought the Vitamix 2 weeks ago and have made a different smoothie every day but I have to say this is my favorite one. You don't need the agave it's great tasting all by it's self.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pjeidy from Great easy recipe Love this recipe. Didn't add the agave as felt it didn't need it and I was right on. No need for it. Full body flavor. Just perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Foodie P from Yummy Smoothie First week with my new Vitamix we are LOVING it! I omitted the banana (I find it overpowers) I cut the recipe is 1/4 and made in my 20oz container (since I am experimenting with different smoothie recipes-good thing since I would have drank all four servings). Going out to buy more groceries so I can try more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by NanaTammy from In Love Finally made the plunge and bought my first Vitamix. Absolutely love it! Thanks to the representative on the phone at Vitamix who helped me to choose the correct one for me. Have made soup, smoothies, chopped veggies and made cracker crumbs so far. Favorite appliance in the kitchen.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Donna28R from Too Sweet I have a sweet tooth, and this receipe was too sweet for me. I didn't use the 2 Tablespoons agave nectar in the smoothie, and the grapes made it too sweet.
