Very good. Just made a few modifications. Used walnuts instead of almonds, hemp milk, grapes instead of raisins and chia seeds instead of flaxseed. Delicious, would make again

Delicious, I added some white beans and a few dates to make it more substantial as a meal.

Very tasty! Made it as written except used Dr. fuhrman's almond butter instead of the raw almonds. . Loved the hint of parsley flavor that came through.

Very good smoothie recipe. Kids loved it with the mods that we made. Mods, instead of chia seeds, used flaxseed. Used spinach rather than kale and left out the parsley. With those modifications, it turned out wonderful. Plan on putting this in my morning smoothie list.

This was very good. I also made a chocolate version using chocolate almond milk, but 1 T. of cocoa powder would also work. In the chocolate version, I added 1/2 tsp. of almond extract.
We found the serving size small, smaller than most of the smoothie recipes we make, so will up the measurements a bit next time.

Good tasting and a nice set of healthy ingredients. I followed this recipe exactly as is. I will continue making other smoothie recipes before I make this one again. But it was good. Thank you!
