Fruit Smoothies

I came up with this six-ingredient recipe when experimenting in the kitchen one day. The smoothies are refreshing and make a wholesome, nutrition-packed snack. They're also a great way to get going in the morning.—Bryce Sickich, New Port Richey, Florida

    It was very good .I used one apple instead of apple sauce. I took the skin off apple and cut the apple and put it in the blender with all the other ingredients.I am a diabetic and this is good for me.if you want it a little sweeter put about 1 teaspoon of sugar or honey in it.I liked it just the way it is.

    It was ok, I gave it 4 stars because I think if you just added more strawberries it would be really good. I liked the flavor, there was just not enough fruit.
