  1. I make smoothies every day with spinach and I am really curious as to how this beautiful smoothie has no green color.

    • This particular recipe was from a reader who did not provide a photo, so a stock photo was used. But I also rarely get much green when I use spinach in conjunction with the amount of orange used in this recipe, so I chose a photo that reflected that.

  2. I made this and it is totally green. The orange juice does not offset the color.

    • Thanks for the info. I’ll try making this one exactly as written (it was originally a reader recipe) so that I can get an accurate photo.

  3. Mine came out Avocado colour nothing at all like the photo

  4. Mine also came out green, I only chose it because it looked a nice and fruity, not what I expected. Can’t taste much orange either.

  5. I get scared when I see recipes with 50+ grams of sugar in them. Surely this can’t be good for you even if it does come from fruit. Is it really ok to be eating this much sugar?

    • Personally, I am not afraid of sugar from fruit. Fruit provides a whole host of healthy nutrients. It is refined sugar that I avoid. If you want avoid all sugar you would have to remove fruit from your diet, which I do not recommend without talking to a nutritionist. If you are diabetic or are trying to cut but not completely rule out sugar, aim for more vegetable based smoothies than this one such as an all vegetable smoothie with just a touch if something like apple to flavor it. If you are trying to lose weight, note that some programs such as weight watchers encourage eating fruit and make it a free food. Other programs might restrict it more.

  6. Hello. Is the measure right for the pumpkin seeds? I can’t see even one fitting in a 1/4 tsp measure.

    • Good catch! You are right, that can’t be correct. I changed it to 1/4 cup and really anything between 1/8 cup and 1/4 would be fine. With nuts and seeds I often tend to just toss a small handful of them in.

  7. Very tasty and filling!

  8. in my smoothies and they come out thick this one came out then like juice so how do I make it ice cold and sick like a regular smoothiejodyhamm

    I don’t understand why this smoothie is like drinking juice, I am new to making smoothies however our use of frozen so I don’t understand why this smoothie is like drinking juice, I am new to making smoothies however our use all frozen fruit in my smoothies and they come out thick this one came out then like juice so how do I make it ice cold and sick like a regular smoothie

    • Smoothies can be made with fresh or frozen ingredients. When made with frozen ingredients they will come out thicker. When made with fresh, they will typically be thinner. If you prefer frozen smoothies, go ahead and freeze some of your ingredients or substitute frozen items for fresh ones. You can also use fresh ingredients and add some ice, although I like to use frozen fruit over using ice.

  9. i usually use frozen ingredients but there are none in this recipe. Am l missing something?

    • Some recipes call for frozen ingredient and some do not. If you want a thicker, more frozen texture smoothie, then substituting frozen ingredients for fresh is fine.

  10. Thanks Carleen
