A little more involved than I normally get when making a smoothie (even without a garnish!), but you certainly can't beat the taste of this GREAT SMOOTHIE! I did leave out the ice cubes, but for the frosty touch I used a frozen banana & made sure the rest of the fruits & juice were exta cold! The fresh pineapple, orange & apricots are a really nice combo! KEEPER RECIPE, FOR SURE! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Newest Zaar tag]
