Rated 5 out of 5 by missdawes from the coconut water is the key ingredient Because so many smoothie recipes that I want to try call for white grapes - I bought several pounds, and froze them (washed, and de-stemmed). So this is my first green grape recipe that I didn't make a substitution. The only change I made was that I added 10 mint leaves - because I'm loving mint in smoothies. It was the coconut water that really made this smoothie the success that it was. I was skeptical about 'wasting' coconut water on a smoothie because I thought it would be lost among all the other flavors. I was surprised to discover that it was the coconut water that joined them all together. By the way: I made another one the next day - and only used the suggested 6 mint leaves, and it tasted better than my mintier 10-leaf version.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Metka from The machine is great.....recipe not Way too much sugar. I know it’s “natural sugar” from fruit. Too sweet for me. Next time I’ll eliminate pineapple and mango.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lamorna from Easy favorite. An alternative to the coconut water is a tub of 80 calorie coconut yogurt. The flavor is great with these ingredients, and can carry the day even if you are out of mint. Love the idea of freezing a large quantity of green grapes. I also freeze a large box of baby spinach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CeliRene from Nutritious! Refreshing. I will reduce mint leaves to 4 next time. I love mint but the large leaves I selected overshadowed the overall drink.
