Rated 5 out of 5 by Reviewer1 from Fresh and tasty I make this a couple of times a week on half the scale. Before this, I was not a "celery person" but I now regularly have celery on my shopping list. It's fresh, delicious, and very filling. I typically find that I'm less ravenous even hours after having the smoothie.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KtyP from Refreshing I made a half recipe and it filled a normal size drinking glass. The celery has a distinct flavor and very nice addition to the flavor. It's low in calories and I will make again for a mid afternoon treat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Supplementally Challenged from It's a good start I altered the recipe because the pineapple made it too sweet and there wasn't enough protein. Instead, I did: 1/4 Cup Yogurt 1/4 Cup Cottage Cheese 1/2 Cup Pineapple 1/2 Cup Green Grapes It's more balanced now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anne Klonowski from Really Liked it My husband & I tried this recipe as our first smoothie. It has a fresh taste & smell. The celery & pineapple are well balanced. The yogurt doesn't make the smoothie have a chalky taste either.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Paddler4x from Modified Pineapple Qty with Stevia 2 cups of pineapple chunks has 44 g of carbs, or 22 g per cup. I reduced recipe to 1 cup and added 2 packages of SweetLeaf Natural Stevia. The result was I enjoyed it. Next time I am going to try this with a splash of Cayenne pepper and/or cinnamon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bookworm63 from Great Taste! This was my first attempt at a smoothie in my Vitamix and didn't disappoint! I didn't have quite enough pineapple so added a few green grapes. The celery gives it a unique taste. Will definitely be making this one again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Seepnezorf from Super tasty Nice blend of citrus and healthy spinach. Great for kids who don’t like the taste of the greens. I used crushed pineapple which I had on hand vs fresh. It did clog up the blades initially. Seemed to make far more than three cups. Don’t recommend using an oat milk yogurt as it left an odd after taste. Will definitely make this again.
