Comment

I tried this with a class of adults and the bell pepper flavor was pretty intense, almost overwhelming.  It was better when we diluted the smoothie with more juice (we added orange juice), but still not a class favorite.

I took this recipe to my event last Saturday, and it was very well received. People were surprised to know that the smoothie had bell pepper, but they loved it. They were asking for the recipe because they wanted to make it at home.
