  • I just made the Jolly Green Smoothie and it was great !

    Troy Simon on

  • This smoothie is great so creamy!

    Twila Davis on

  • Love the picture showing the paper cup-cake holders on the Mason jars. What a great idea for making and storing the smoothie which should preserve all the nutrients. Just punch a hole for the straw and YUM!

    nana9 on

  • where are these jars available?

    cruiserhb1 on

  • You can find these jars at most grocery stores.

    Blendtec on

  • I used my blender for the Cornbread recipe in the book and added a can of creamed corn and cook it another 10-15 minutes. It was the best. I make green juice daily but like a lot of the comments I do not use fruit mostly greens and veggies. Cucumber, celery, Kale, carrots.

    Lynn on

  • Why paper cup cake holders and not he original lid?

    Ashlife on

  • My banana, spinach and berries were frozen. I halved the ice but still had to add more liquid. Probably could’ve skipped the ice entirely. When my bananas get very ripe I peel and half them, then flash freeze laid out on a plate and toss them in a gallon bag. My spinach for smoothies I get in a huge bag at Costco and toss it straight in the freezer!

  • This was perfect the way it is. A great breakfast smoothie. Thank you!

    Flash Mom on

  • What could we diabetics replace the honey with (since that’s a major source of the sugar contents)

    LookGee on

  • Hi , I am new to this so pardon any silly questions. I would like to make a meal replacement in the mornings for 2, myself and husband. If I use a protein powder do I need 2 scoops or one and…. with all the ingredients how much does one consume to meet a meal replacement requirement?
    How long can you keep it in the refridgerator ?

    Melissa on

  • How in the world does this smoothie turn out green for people? Mine turned out kind of brown…seems like there is too much red from the raspberries and strawberries to turn out as green as in the picture?

    Mike on

  • Your questions are not silly. Serving size of protein powders may vary by brand, though typically one scoop is one serving. For this recipe, one meal replacement is about half of the recipe or about 22 fl oz with 2 scoops of protein added to the recipe.

    Blendtec on

  • Only way I see to have a green smoothie is to leave out the raspberries and strawberries. I’ve made green smoothies with banana, kale, celery and apple.

    Nutz In Ya Mowf on

  • Hi Mike, we just tried this and it is absolutely not green at all. Followed the recipe exactly…turned out brown. Tastes great though.

    Jimbo on

  • I make one for my husband and I each morning. Our favorite combination is as follows: 1/2C 100% carrot juice, 1/4 c orange juice, 2 Tbsp low fat vanilla yogurt, 2 C kale, 3 strawberries, three large pineapple chunks, 2 thirds of a banana, a dash of cinnamon and a handful of ice in that order. Press the smoothie button and enjoy! So delish and good for you.

    Dawna on

  • Are there any recipes for one serving?

    April Paloma on

  • You can always reduce the recipes by half or 2/3rds to give you less. There has to be a certain amount of ingredients for it to blend, though. If you have the Twister jar, smaller amounts will work best with that.

    Blendtec on

  • Why in most of the receipe there is ice cubes? Can I replace it by water? or do I need to replace it by water? If yes what could be the equivalence

  • What is best jar for smoothies for 575?

    Andrea Wo on

  • I would recommend "THE BODY RESET DIET" By HARLEY PASTERNAK / LAURA MOSER
    The book is literally how to reset through smoothie, not juicing, meal replacements.

    It has all the smoothies, ingredients and measurements.

    I have zero to do with it. I just use it, which is why I bought a Blendtec.

    WhiteDoberman on

  • Any jar will work for smoothies. If we had to choose, we’d recommend the WildSide+ jar. :)

    Blendtec on

  • Yes, "C" is "cup" :)

    Blendtec on

  • Hi, we don´t have the same measurement system – I guess C stands for cup?

    Inger Friding Wallenholm on

  • Under "Nutritional Information" it says the number of servings as well as the serving size. This recipe has 5 servings of 9 fl oz.

    Blendtec on

  • Hi, Your recipes do not say how many they serve. The ingredients here seem rather a lot for just 89 calories ???

    Louise Ripley on

  • my strawberries and raspberries are frozen , i tried this and it came out watery..any suggestions?

    Donna Dempsey on

  • I had cut the ice in half as the berries were frozen. Should I omit ice completely?

    Donna Dempsey on

  • Did you still put the ice in?

    Blendtec on

  • Hi there

    I love your Jolly Green Smoothie, and we would love to feature it on our website, GreenThickies.com. Would it be OK for me to use one of your photos within my post? I will of course link back to your post.

    Thanks so much

    Green Thickies on

  • No, you’ll still want to put the ice in (there aren’t enough frozen berries to replace the ice completely). If it’s too thin/watery, add more ice until you get the desired consistency.

    Blendtec on

  • :) thanks a lot.

    Green Thickies on

  • Absolutely!

    Blendtec on

  • Amazingly delicious and easy. The first thing I made with the ES3 Designer Blender and still my fav.
