This is review of my 8th delivery from a smoothie subscription box called Green Blender. This week I gave two recipes five out of five stars and three recipes three stars. My favorite recipe this week was the Chocolate Maple Almond smoothie. If you are here only for the giveaway, then scroll down.

Blueberry Walnut Cobbler

I gave this recipe five out of five stars. The strongest flavor was the oats, blueberries and cinnamon. It's a good substitute for a high calorie, high fat dessert. This one has 215 calories with lots of protein featuring immune boosting and anti-flammatory benefits.

Lavender Pluot Refresh

I absolutely love lavender in my drinks, but this one was too tart so I gave it three stars. The main flavor was lemon, followed by cantaloupe and then lavender. It's a low calorie recipe with only 95 calories and it offers calming and beauty benefits. 

Apricot Island

I gave this one three stars since it was a bit sour. The main flavors were pineapple and apricot. It's a low calorie recipe with only 86 calories and it features energy and immune boosting benefits. It definitely gave me energy which is difficult since I have several health issues that make me very tired. So for that reason, I would repeat this recipe. Perhaps the addition of a bit of honey would make it a bit less tart.

Chocolate Maple Almond

I gave this one five stars and it's just like having a high calorie dessert yet it only has 225 calories and it low in fat. The main flavor was cacao powder, almond butter and banana. It tasted like a banana chocolate shake so it was very delicious. It offers energy and immune boosting benefits. The bananas that arrived were very ripe, so I immediately removed their skins, chopped them into one inch pieces and froze them prior to making the smoothie.

Coconut Apple Mint

Hubby gave this one five stars and I gave it two. The main flavor was mint with a slight apple and coconut flavor. It was just too minty for me. It's 226 calories and it offers immune boosting and beauty benefits.

It was another enjoyable week of smoothies. They gave me a credit for the banana that I wasn't able to use all of since it was over ripe. I think was damaged during shipping due to the extremely hot weather. They have recently improved their packaging so that the ingredients aren't harmed during the hot summer months.
