Recipe by Jim Wohlgemuth
"Thick and healthy fruit drink with apple, banana and orange juice. The frozen banana takes the place of shaved ice and results in a smooth, creamy texture. Serve with dollop of whipped cream for added effect."

YUM! Made this today for me and my toddler. He loved it! I didn't freeze the banana so it would be easier for him to drink through a straw.
This was awful... The apple made it gritty and tart, the juice made it really sour. The best part was the banana... I will never make this again!
DEICIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I liked it alot!!!!But I used frozen strawberries not an apple.
I really like this recipe. Not only is it a nice healthy treat for myself but my 1 yr. old can also enjoy it, which is always a plus!
Okay, but won't be making again. I froze the banana with the peel still on--perhaps peeling and then freezing is better, considering how difficult it is to get the peel off (should I have known that??). Mixing 8 oz of milk with 1 1/2 bananas of medium ripeness is better and easier to make. Bananas need not be frozen.
Good smoothie recipe. Apples are usually not an ingredient found in smoothies due to their grittyness ( I'm assuming), but this tasted refreshing. I didn't freeze my banana ( I was in a hurry ) and did add a tsp of almond extract. I used a blend of carrot/orange juice and really enjoyed the mixed flavors and texture. Had this with cinnamon toast from this site. Thanks Jim!!
This was excellent! I used a red delicious apple and it was not gritty at all. My five year old liked it very much as well.
This was ok...different but ok. I added a couple of scoops of fat free whipped cream in the blender to take away the gritty taste that everyone was talking about, and it turned out nice and creamy. I just think that the apple brought a sour taste that I wasn't too crazy about. Maybe it would taste better with a sweeter apple...unless tart smoothies are your thing. But my 7 yr old son like it so we're giving it 4 stars.
