    If I had to describe this smoothie in one word, it would be "delightful". Creamy and delicious but not overly sweet. Add more water to thin it out if desired. I think it's great as is but I have on occasion used coconut milk in place of the water which was excellent! I've read that it wasn't sweet enough for some people and I suggest adding either some raw honey or try adding 1/2 an apple. I highly recommend this recipe as is but don't be afraid to customize it to your preference. Enjoy!

    This was amazing. I used a soft, ripe avocado, which I couldn't taste past a slight creaminess, and Julep Mint. I This turned out sweet, refreshing, and tasty. This has become a post-cleanse favorite.

    So very sadly....NOT DELICIOUS!! Needs honey or something. The added mint made it very "earthy" to say it nicely. I had to force it down just so I didn't starve at work today. Moving on to the Mango Tahini Smoothie. I already make an awesome mango pineapple smoothy so I am sure this has to better than the blueberry pond sludge. Yuck....sorry to be so honest...but yuck!

    Don't be shy with the mint because it adds so much dimension. This is a very filling and smooth smoothie with the avocado. Yum!

    It tastes..fresh, healthy and clean. Definitely tasted the avocado and mint the most, but I'm not complaining about that because this is a detox diet so I'm going to suck it up..literally.

    I love the blueberry/mint smoothie concept. Orange juice makes my stomach hurt, so I added pomegranate juice instead and a little almond milk. Minus the avocado, and it was yum!

    Love the ingredients in this smoothie! I've made it several times, altering or adding a few ingredients that I had on hand. Last time I added a collard green leaf and left out the avocado since I had some for lunch in the broccoli soup (also part of this plan). I also added a bit more OJ and less mint to balance the flavors more toward my sweet tooth.

    On day 3 of detox, this was my favorite of the smoothies so far but it lacked in sweetness and a whole 1/2 cup of mint was a little over whelming so I'm going to substitute for a 1/4 cup tomorrow and add either a banana or some agave nectar :)

    Very thick (perhaps let frozen blueberries thaw more) but this makes two 8 oz glasses, so by the second glass was full and didn't mind the crushed mint as much. Still missing sweetness.

    Made this and loved it! Except I left out the mint. I hate mint. The frozen berries make this nice & thick.

    I am wrapping up week 1 of this detox. This has been quite a feat. This smoothie was absolutely delightful! If my tongue could reach to the bottom of the glass I would have licked it clean.

    I substituted blackberries for the blueberries because we live in an area where it's too expensive to get blueberries. I thought the combination was too bright for me but that may have had to do with the blackberry substitution. So the second time I added a half of banana and it was awesome. Loved the mint.

    Delicious! Love the hint of mint and I'm not a mint fan.

    So far, I can't try any of the other recipies for smoothies because this one is so awesome! Fourth day in a row and still love it. I took the advice of one of these reviews and subbed in almond milk for the water. Totally keeps me full til lunch. YUMMM.

  • 24 Jan, 2013

    Very nice...I did not have a lemon so I used lime, tasted great. I also used fresh orange juice. What a great combination. Today is starting day 3 of this detox and going well so far.

  • 23 Jan, 2013

    I might have this smoothie every day - YUM! I made the recipe exactly as written (for the OJ I squeezed a small orange rather than store bought OJ).

  • 23 Jan, 2013

    This was a great smoothie! I used lemon mint (growing in my kitchen window) and used almond milk instead of water. Also I used fresh blueberries instead of frozen (cheaper right now).

  • 23 Jan, 2013

    I bravely added the avocado and was pleasantly surprised. After the first couple of sips I wasn't sure..but after you sip it for a moment it grows on you. Very rich thick smoothie.

  • 22 Jan, 2013

    The orange juice did not mix well with the mint for me - I'll be trying it again with apple juice swapped out or just water.

  • 22 Jan, 2013

    Excellent smoothie (as all others). I'm on my seven day diet program, I lost 3 kg (6.6 lb !!!) and I feel so good! Sure I go on with your 2013 Action Plan. Many thanks!
