Reviews

  1. Good smoothie. Did not change the the amount of the ingredients a bit except for including 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract to add to the flavor. Not sure why there are negative reviews about the smoothie being watery. More than likely it was the blender and/or their blending technique. Fortunately own a Blendtec blender. Threw - Read more ...
  2. Easy and sweet.
  3. It's really good but I'll add more strawberries next time
  4. the smoothie was runny so i added 2 cups of ice cream. this was good but i will use a diffrent recipe next time
  5. Both my strawberries and bananas were frozen which eliminated the need for ice. This was good but quite runny. Next time I'd cut the milk back by half. It seems to be missing something--I can't put my finger on it.
  6. I minused the wheat germ but the rest was exceptional!
  7. Very good smoothie!! A little too much of a banana taste for me so I added more strawberries other than that it was great!
  8. Very delicious and refreshing. I loved adding honey instead of sugar. If your berries are very sweet you might not need to add the honey. Instead of adding ice I made sure my berries were frozen. You can substitute flax seeds for the wheat germ as well. YUMMY!!
  9. I thought this smoothie was "watered down" way to runny for my taste. I feel a smoothie should be thick and full of fruit flavor this was neither. The addition of wheat germ is a great idea and i recommend adding it. Cut the milk down alot and add yogurt the honey is not necessary - Read more ...
