This is a quick blender recipe that creates a drink with a thick texture, beautiful colours and a fruity fresh taste.
What a great way to get fruit, w/out a lot of extra added calories! I followed the recipe, pretty much as is (I even measured stuff!). The only deviations I made were I did not have fresh mint, so I used a dash of mint extract, I left out the applesauce, and forgot to freeze the strawberries (I threw them in the ice in the freezer while I prepped everything and they actually got a little frozen). The mint really makes this! It's a little "frothy" in consistency; I may add some ice next time. I'd considered adding a little Captain Morgan to make it a grown up smoothie, but decided not to w/the frothiness. I added some frozen grapes at service and I liked their addition. - 18 Jul 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Not only is it healthy it is delicious and beautiful! It looks like it has confetti in it, so light and refreshing. I used regular applesauce because we didn't have unsweetened. Still turned out great! Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. - 24 Mar 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This was really good. I used green grapes instead of red since I had some already frozen, otherwise all the ingredients are as suggested. I did need to add the pineapple in w/ the applesauce,grapes & lime - there just wasn't quite enough to get things going in the blender. I added the stawberries & mint later, but decided to blend them smoother than suggested so we could use straws. Thanks for the recipe! - 26 Mar 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
