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 StephieG from Lo-cal and refreshing Super easy! and a beautiful color! I substituted frozen mango for pineapple and added water. I'm not a huge fan of celery so next time I will use just 1/2 a stalk.
