    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 :)
