  1. ALBA ROCIO CLAVIJO says:

    Love the mix of berries!! nice taste

  2. Cheryl B. says:

    Used the fruit listed, but in smaller amounts. Again, used kefir for 1/2 of the liquid. Added some hemp hearts and cinnamon. I have always liked smoothies with berries and bananas and this was good.

  3. Nancy says:

    We have another winner!!! I was able to modify this recipe to not include the cherries (I’m sorry, but I am not a fan of cherries) and it was very delicious & filling!!!

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      Lot’s of people (myself included) aren’t fans of cherries, yet find out they LOVE them in this smoothie. Let us know if you feel brave and give it a blend… 🙂

  4. Holly says:

    LOVED the addition of cherries in this smoothie! Super yummy!

  5. Dr. Aja Holmes says:

    I am such a cherry fan after using them in a smoothie!! It was yummy!

  6. Dr. Aja Holmes says:

    I am such a cherry fan after using them in a smoothie!! It was yummy! Adding them made the smothie taste really yummy!

  7. Gloria says:

    I never thought to use cherries in a smoothie and now that I have tried it I am definitely doing it again! This is a must try!

  8. Lynne says:

    Delicious! Tasty and good for you. Live the combination of the different berries and especially the cherries. My favorite. I added kale to mine and it’s fabulous.

  9. Luis Mejia says:

    This was good I used some super greens and a meal replacement oatmeal and almond butter this one was better than the first smoothie with the peaches that had no taste…

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      Glad this one was a good fit, Luis. Sounds like you’re #teamberry!

  10. Alannah says:

    This smoothie was so refreshing to me. I added Greek yogurt and a little honey for my lunch. Great combo of flavors.

  11. Betty says:

    Refreshing, but mine was mostly blueberries. I love the cherries, but didn’t have any strawberries, so added extra blueberries. Could have been better.

  12. Judy says:

    Really did like the flavor of this smoothie, love the taste of cherries. Will be doing this one again!

  13. Michelle says:

    This one was just okay for me. I’m not as much a fan of cherries. I may like it better with added protein powder.

  14. Ogechi Nwaokelemeh says:

    Day 2 smoothie was yum! Not quite ‘green’ as mentioned..but still quite yum!:))

  15. Cheryl Robillard says:

    This is my go to smoothie – sometimes add protein powder, hemp seed and flax seeds to make it meal

  16. Dora Suarez says:

    This was very refreshing and tasty; that said I’m giving it a 4-star rating not 5 because I modified the recipe and added an entire banana not just 1/2. I did this from previous experience with mixed berry recipes where I find them to tart for my liking. With the modification it becomes a keeper for me. So good and now I can reap the benefits of berries in a daily smoothie. YumYum.

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      Yum yum indeed! Adding extra banana def ups the sweetness, yet also adds more natural sugar. If that’s good with you, it’s good with us too! 🙂

  17. Amanda Hawkins says:

    I love cherries!!

  18. Joyce says:

    I liked this smoothie, but I forgot to buy the cherries, so I missed that flavor. I am looking for trying it with the cherries.

  19. Laura Jacobson says:

    This was very tasty and had nice flavor, I used the plant protein powder and had this smoothie for breakfast.

  20. Jennifer A says:

    Sweet and fruity! I love the combo of cherries and berries! I added Protein Smoothie Boost to make it a meal.

  21. katelyn allan says:

    yummy smoothie for my post workout, love the energy i have from these and i get my water in as well

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      Awesome Katelyn! Adding chia seeds to this smoothie would be a great post-workout recovery move as well. They help to replenish protein for your muscles, as well as give you omega 3s to fight inflammation.

  22. Sharon says:

    Rating Day 2 Smoothie. Easy to make. Pleasantly refreshing. Tart with a hint of sweetness. Surprisingly, no taste of spinach. LOL

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      We’re super sneaky with that spinach, aren’t we? 😉

  23. Nancy Lewellen says:

    Sweet but not too sweet, easy to make and liked that I had all ingredients already!

  24. Patti Langford says:

    I always thought that making a smoothie took a lot of time, but after 3 days I am realizing how easy it is!! I also love the flavors so far—especially the berries!

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      Love this Patti! Yes, isn’t it so nice to find out eating healthy can be this easy? So glad you’re rawkin this 10-Day Green Smoothie Challenge with us.

  25. Jessica says:

    My new favorite!!! So good and juicy! You can really taste each flavor of fruit! This may be my go to!

  26. Kim says:

    Liked Day 2 Berry Smoothie very much. I can’t believe how easy breezy these smoothies are to make. I make them right before heading out the door to work. I tell myself I will wait until I get to the office to drink the smoothie but that never happens. After one sip on the drive in and it’s disappeared by the time I get to work! How’d that happen?! I used a frozen fruit blend. Worked very nicely.

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      LOL. The same thing happens in my car!!! Must be some sort of smoothie vortex? So glad you love it and are finding it easy to do. Healthy can be simple!!! 🙂

  27. Cori Dennhardt says:

    It was good!

  28. Alyssa says:

    What it lacks in colour it makes up for in flavour. I made this with a whole small banana, milk instead of water, and matcha. Next time I would definitely use less banana and use water as listed to allow the berry flavours to be the star.

  29. Toni says:

    I really liked this one. I think the cherries add to it.

  30. J'QUE says:

    Wowzer.. I was surprised by how great the flavors tasted together. I really wanted the color to be green. I’m not a big cherry fan, but this one is a keeper.
    Yummy Deliciousness.

  31. Cristina Ribeiro says:

    Mine has been mild tasting but because I used avocado instead of banana, frozen cherry berry mix and added chia and hemp seeds

  32. Dawn says:

    Funny it has spinach because it’s not green with all the delicious fruit!

  33. Lorena says:

    I used avocado instead of banana and also worked fine. Nice flavor with the cherries.

  34. Bonnie Clyne says:

    I didn’t get to the store in time to do the Day 1 smoothie, so this is my first time adding spinach. Don’t be afraid of the spinach! I am not a spinach fan and am very picky about how I will consume it and I was concerned that it would mess up a perfectly good smoothie. It did not! I followed the (doubled) recipe exactly and hubby and I could not detect the flavor of spinach at all, although we could tell that there was something very slightly vegetable-y about it compared to our normal smoothies with just fruit. I rated it 4 stars because it wasn’t particularly flavorful, but perhaps it was just my specific ingredients at this particular time. Others mentioned lots of cherry flavor, which I was surprised not to get, and the banana was on the under-ripe side, so less sweet. I would make it again with a more ripe banana, and hope for cherries with more pizazz next time.

  35. Barbara says:

    Very good. Great berry taste. Could not tell there was spinach in it.

  36. Churice R says:

    This kept me full all day and loved the darker berry selections, wonderful flavor added chia seeds.

  37. Grace says:

    Day 2 was delicious! I doubled the spinach, used blackberries instead of strawberries, plus added 1/2 an avocado and 2 tbsp of black chia seeds, making enough for two smoothies. The blueberries, chia seeds and avocado increased the thickness, so had to drink with a straw! (glass/stainless steel straws of course ;))

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      Super rawkstar moves happening in your blender, Grace! Love all the extra protein and healthy fats you gained from the avocado and chia.

  38. Pat L. says:

    I liked it. Again, my banana flavor was strong. Wondering if it’s because I used older bananas than greener ones? Anyone else’s look more dark brown than green?!

    • Grace says:

      Hi Pat, you’re correct, the older/more ripe the banana, the more flavour. My smoothie was not green either. Started as a dark red, then changed to brown after sitting out for awhile (oxidation). At least it still tasted delicious!

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      You’re totally right Pat! The older and yellow-er (it’s a word now!) a banana is, the sweeter it is. If you’re concerned about a smoothie being too banana-y (also now a word!), def feel free to use less. You can always toss more in as you blend. Smoothies with berries will for sure look purple, pink or even brownish in color instead of green when blended because of those berries.

  39. Janice says:

    This was much tastier!

  40. Linda says:

    Day two’s smoothie is way more tasty than yesterdays. I am not a fan of raspberries, but they tasted good with the other fruit today.

    • Simple Green Smoothies says:

      So glad you now have a way of blending up the health benefits of raspberry in a way that is yummy to you!
