  • This recipe sounds terrific, but how can there be no carbohydrates when there is a banana in the mix?

    Bertram on

  • This recipe sounds great…however, this recipe has about 18 carbs per serving if my calculations are correct and not 0 carbs. This is certainly not a low- or no-carb recipe for those who are counting carbs.

    Bananas and pineapples are big red flags…

    Maverick on

  • Wow! Sounds terrific, but pineapple and bananas spell carbohydrates in my book…

    Michael Thomson on

  • Great observation. HOWEVER,, Carbs are not altogether a BAD thing. It is not wheat which has greater side effects, and you need the energy.

    Movingforward on

  • This is a great recipe for those on Weight Watchers because it would be 0 points so long as the pineapple is fresh not canned.

    Kat Mark on

  • I see that a number of these recipes have bananas and pineapples. Not sure how the nutritional information is being formulated

    Carbwatch on

  • Mg or g??

    Wiglaf5 on

  • Can I add Cilantro instead of Parsley?

    Anitha on

  • Not all carbs are bad. Fruits and vegetables have numerous phytochemicals that promote good health and disease prevention. The benefits far outweigh the carbs.

    Jen on

  • Tastes great and it’s healthy. "Carb counters" will have to find something else to enjoy.

    Don Sewell on

  • A carb error like this for a diabetic may cause a blood glucose issue!

    dshipman@q.com on

  • Since I eat virtually no bread, grains etc. I welcome this recipe and think that I can benefit from the inclusion of bananas and pineapples.

    Thanks Blendtec for cool raw veggie/fruit smoothie recipes!

    Juna on

  • There are more calories than 77 as well. One banana has around 105 calories, and pineapple has a lot, too.

    Bennett on

  • Yes, but it will change the flavor slightly.

    Blendtec on

  • Thank you for the catch, we’ve updated the recipe to show the correct carbohydrates.

    Blendtec on

  • How much parsley is considered a bunch? I just pick it from my garden?…..1/4 bunch about 2 Tbs chopped, more or less ?

    Shari on

  • It would be nice if you would give weights for some of these items. Cucumbers and bananas can vary in size. And how much is a 1/4 bunch of parsley?

    Janet on

  • How much more water would I need if I added spinach?

    Kathy on

  • It shouldn’t need very much more water. Give it a try adding no additional water and see how it goes. You can always add more water if needed.

    Blendtec on

  • Great suggestion!

    Blendtec on

  • Do I need to peel and remove the seeds before I put the 1/2 cucumber in the blender?

    Lynn on

  • This sounds delicious! Cant wait to try it. My kids and i are very athletic and we eat a lot.of.bananas. Thanks!

    Jess on

  • The nutritional information states that there are 19.5 grams of carbohydrates, unless I am reading incorrectly.

    Just saw that it was updated after I posted.

    PGCMD on

  • This a great recipe. I ususally print the good ones but I do not see a print tab here for a formated printable page. Of course I can still print,just wondering if I am blind.

  • You need to get "ZipList" button so we can save our recipes. :-)

    Rhonda Langford on

  • Made this with the anxiousness of a great lunch. It turns out rather thin and pale in color. Needs a re-do

    Jo on

  • Carb counters can always add fiber to nix out some of the carbs if limiting carb grams throughout the day.
    The beauty of a juice/smoothie like this for breakfast or lunch is that it keeps you "cleansing" the body’s cells until you consume something with protein and fat (more like a main meal). Some days, I sip a fruit smoothie (and water) all morning and afternoon long until dinner – it keeps me going!

    Mariella on

  • My GI tract has problems digesting fruit (sugar) (as well as gluten.
    Can we have more blender recipes emphasizing veggies/greens please?

    Tyndalstone on

  • Delicious!!

    Leroy on

  • A bunch of parsley weighs 50 – 70 grams.

    Judy on

  • Thank you for the suggestions!

    Blendtec on

  • Fruit and vegetable carbohydrates are not the the enemy…white breads, pastas and rice are. For those that are following a low-carb diet please be aware of eliminating fresh fruits and veggies. These are nutrient dense foods and too much protein is taxing on your digestive system, liver and kidneys.

    Elizabeth on

  • They didn’t have the 19.5 g of carbs populated…guess they added it when I made the original comment :)

    Maverick on

  • Yes, need more recipes for people who are not able to have dairy, sugar or gluten please. Thanks!

    EssentialBeWell on

  • people… Eat Vegetables, not enriched foods. Replace a smoothie like this for a doughnut, or a slice of bread, you’ll get more nutrition and less energy than the aforementioned…

    Richard on

  • Where did you read it had 0 carbs? I read it says 19.5 carbs!

    Layla on

  • Somebody at Blendtec needs to correct the nutritional info, it is not possible to have no carbs in this Smoothie with a banana and pineapple chunks included in this drink.

    Don on

  • I also would like the above please. Thank you !
