I would never have thought to add avocado or ginger to a smoothie but they both are awesome in this smoothie. Sometimes, I'll throw in berries instead of apples. P.S. I had so much fun making this smoothie in a Facebook Live (check EatingWell's Facebook page), mainly because I got to taste it in our rehearsal and on set!

very good this is actually very good! the person who said they couldnt drink it --- it was probably because of the CELERY ! when i first starting making smoothies, I had to throw them away also, I later realized-- it was from the bitterness of the celery!!! Just omit this ingredient
