      Thank-you! So glad you enjoyed….one of our favorites too.

    • skinnyms ┬áMarch 13, 2012

      You're so welcome. Glad you enjoyed!

  2. Brenda Wendi Trigo  April 3, 2012

    This is sooooo good.  I add flax to mine for added benefit.

    • skinnyms ┬áApril 4, 2012

      Brenda, Good idea!

  3. Karen W. Smith  April 3, 2012

    This may be a dumb question but what is the size for one serving?

    • skinnyms ┬áApril 4, 2012

      1 Cup.

      • hapol2 ┬áAugust 24, 2014

        can this be refrozen to save for another day? I would had to waste 2 servings.

        • SkinnyMs ┬áAugust 25, 2014

          hapol2, Yes, smoothies freeze great! One clever way to freeze smoothies is in ice cube trays. They will be easy to re-blend when you pop them out of the tray.

    I drink a green smoothie every morning but this pretty color enticed me so i made it last night.  It was green like my other smoothies, how could it not be with kale and spinach? I made it again this morning and this time instead of mixed berries i just used strawberries and rasp for the fruit (and the bananas called for)  Still green. Regarding taste, it was 'okay" Since i like all these ingredients and use them regularly in different ways, i will not make this again. for those who don't use these ingredients  it would be a healthy way to get a good dose of beneficials….who said medicine had to taste great anyways? (it IS "okay")

  5. Lhanken  May 17, 2012

    This was very good but was kind of a gross brown color.  Maybe I had too much kale?

    • skinnyms ┬áMay 17, 2012

      Possibly. It should be loosely packed…so try a little less next time.

  6. Berkemess  May 20, 2012

    So yummy! I am on a super food kick and especially kale!

  7. Amie  May 20, 2012

    YUM…..  ­čÖé

  8. Jamie Deveau  May 20, 2012

    I LOVE this smoothie! So quick and easy for busy mornings getting my kids and fiancé ready. As a mother to almost one year old twins, this recipe is a great thing when we need to head out the door quickly ­čÖé

  9. Melbacheez  May 20, 2012

  13. Cindy Blankenship  May 24, 2012

    Great smoothie!! A treat that's good for you!

  14. Jennifer Murray Lewi  May 25, 2012

    I can't wait to try this.  Hoping the kids like it as well.

  15. Marjorie  June 21, 2012

    I made this recently and liked it, but it didn't look as pretty as the picture.  How did you get it so pink/red?

  16. CKR  November 4, 2012

    Delish! Great for a weekday breakfast!

  17. Adge  February 17, 2013

    Looks so yum

  18. Mary Anne  May 1, 2013

    I'm addicted to these now. It doesn't look so pretty but I really like the taste and I have a ton of energy

  19. Mcl  June 18, 2013

    What can be used to substitute the yogurt for dairy free?

    • Skinny Ms. ┬áJune 20, 2013

      Yes, but remember the protein content is important. Maybe try an avocado instead.

  20. flute bunny  March 2, 2015

    A lot of the comments said something about kale, but I read over the recipe over and over again and did not see kale. Are my eyes skipping something or did the recipe change?

    • SkinnyMs ┬áMarch 3, 2015

      flute bunny, The recipe probably changed.

  21. Kelli  June 3, 2015

    I am allergic to bananas. Is there something I can use to substitute?

    • SkinnyMs ┬áJune 3, 2015

      Yes, Kelli. A tablespoon of chia seeds will help to act as a binder and achieve a similar consistency.

  22. Tracey  April 24, 2016

    I’m dairy free. Any suggestions for a yogurt substitute? thank you.

    • Gale Compton ┬áApril 24, 2016

      Tracey, There are daily free options by the Silk brand.

  23. Shirl  March 9, 2017

    I can’t wait to try these smoothie

  24. Linette  March 29, 2017

    Thanks so much !! Do you think drinking the smoothies with excersiseing will help in loosing weight?

    • Gale Compton ┬áMarch 29, 2017

      Linette, With consistency and commitment, yes. ­čÖé

  25. Marilee  April 24, 2017

    Red fruit with greens will result in a brown color. Does not effect the taste. Blueberries will usually give you the beautiful purplish color. I’m looking forward to giving this a try. .

  26. Missy  June 20, 2017

    where can 100% pomegranate be purchased? In my area it is always mixed with other juices. I would prefer it not from concentrate juice. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

  27. Beverly  January 20, 2018

    If I used fat free Greek yogurt, would that lower the points?

    • Gale Compton ┬áJanuary 20, 2018

      Beverly, The points would be the same as regular yogurt.

  28. Jennifer S Herzer  January 31, 2018

    This is NOT a 5 point smoothie on weight watchers…..when you create a recipe , and list it as a DRINK, it changes the point value…this smoothie is a whopping 15 POINTS…according to my WW leader
