A bit tart.  I liked it better with some unsweetened pomegranate juice tossed in.

I'm not going to lie. I was scared of this recipe. LOL However, I was pleasantly surprised. I used the 1/2 pom juice and 1/2 plant milk mixture because I did not have carrot juice on hand. It did come out a little on the thick side so I added a bit of water to thin it out and it was great.

I used red radish micro greens, and a beet/orange juice. I was very pleasantly surprised and had both servings at once!

I prepared this smoothie per the recipe. It was actually quite tasty and kept me satisfied through the morning. I did add ice to my shaker bottle. I plan to make it again.

Stick with the broccoli florets or something sweeter. I tried frozen broccoli with kale and frozen strawberries.  I juiced fresh carrot juice. I had to add half a cup of unsweetened almond milk because it was so thick and too green, even with the lemon which usually cuts it.  I feel like freshly juiced orange juice would be really good.   Have to try the pomegranate juice.  Am going to try a couple of different combinations. But still a good way to get greens in!  Am sure the right combo is delicious!

I was hesitant to make this but was pleasantly surprised and really enjoyed this smoothie.  I made it a handful of times now.  I pretty much follow the recipe with the exception of adding lemon.  I always used strawberries and broccoli sprouts.  I switched between kale or collard greens.  I also made it with freshly juiced carrots and I had it with 1/2 cup pomegranate juice & 1/2 cup almond milk.  Both ways taste good, but prefer the carrot juice a tad bit more.    This recipe is a keeper!

I was suprised by this recipe! I wasn't sure I'd like it, but it is so good! I used 1/2 unsweeteened soy milk and 1/2 pomegranate juice. I forgot to add the splash of lemon, so I will do that next time. The walnuts add a nice flavor. Will definitely make again.

A little tart, but not too strong or flavorful. Made it exactly as written (with carrot juice and strawberries). Decided to next add a scoop of Fuhrman's protein powder and it is delicious. Next time would try pom juice or soy milk and still include the protein powder.
