This was good. I doubled the recipe but felt it could use something more... for more sweetness. Maybe I'll try peanut butter next time. Read More

This is a good smoothie but I also add grapes and fresh ginger. The ginger gives it that extra zing. You can also substitute soy yogurt for the milk. Read More

I don't drink soy milk so I used fat free milk and a teaspoon of vanilla flavoring. Next time I'll use the whole banana. Read More

This was okay but there wasn't that much flavor. I think I might try it again substituting fruit yogurt for the soy milk and/or fresh bananas for frozen. Read More
