    For those of us who are sugar intolerant, consuming this would be a disaster.

    This serves 4, so it’s only 3 oz of orange juice per serving. Yeah, there are healthier options than orange juice, but this is probably delicious to someone not used to green smoothies, making it a great starter smoothie.

    It doesn’t sound that bad compared to all the candy kids are usually eating around this time. I would probably adjust it, but give credit to the bledtec team for their effort. :)

    Not healthy google "Sweden be comes first western nation to reject lowfat diet" and this is baised on over 16,000 published studies – for over 40 years we have been given the wrong dietary advice – wise up do your own research

    Rick Fernandez’s comments are grist for the mill. Its alot of sugar. I wish there were recipes like the carrot juice and tomato vegetable juice found on pgs 17 and 18 of the Blendtec recipe book. I love the fruit drinks but am conscious of all the sugar thats inherent in them.
