Rated 5 out of 5 by BKCA from Naturally sweet! The orange adds a great natural sweetness that my 6 and 8 year old loved! I used 1/2 cup water with about 1/2 cup ice cubes because my banana wasn't frozen. I would think the fresher your ingredients, the less water and more ice you could change out to increase the thickness. Great easy recipe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by dawndirect from Loved it but added more . . . I didn't know what I wanted for dinner so when it got late I decided to look for a smoothie as an alternative. I followed the instructions but added ice, 1 t. maca powder, 1/2 scoop of vanilla protein powder, about a teaspoon of peanut butter powder, a tablespoon of coconut oil, a large spoon of unflavored Fage yogurt, and a couple of mini ice cubes of beet juice I had in the freezer (from when I juiced them and had too many, I made mini ice cubes for such a reason). It was satisfying and I didn't go to bed hungry . . . nor was my stomach having to work too hard before bed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Snelson from Good balanced taste; not too sweet I've always had a love for green smoothies, but I thought about trying some fruit smoothies this week. Tried this simple recipe and I really enjoyed it. Every fruit balances each other. I followed the recipe exactly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Arri from Great if you like bannanas It is so good! It is great for kids and is healthy too! It has a strong banana taste that might not be for you, if banana is not your thing. However, I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kdrobs from Smoothie the whole family loves I love this simple all fruit smoothie! The texture is great - and I really like that I don't need to add yogurt. I sometimes add in frozen raspberries to the recipe (handful) for a nice sweet taste (masks the banana taste a bit).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bethany from Super tasty!!! I bought my Vitamix a few weeks ago and have been experimenting with smoothie recipes. This is one of my faves! The flavor is great and it's not too sweet. I used frozen blueberries that seemed to make it even better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JohnO from Great smoothies I use about 4oz of OJ, a handful of frozen blueberries, 1/2 fresh banana, maybe some pure grape juice or other juice we might have, or peel a tangerine and throw it in the mix, and a handful of ice cubes. Hit the switch and what comes out is a wonderful smoothie, that is healthful, about 150 calories (use only unsweetened fruit juices) and taste great. I have this every morning during my Bible time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kdishroon from Very simple and tasty I replaced the water with orange juice because I didn't have an orange and I added a few ice cubes because my blueberries weren't frozen...so quick and simple yet very tasty.
