Delicious! My husband loved it also. I used vanilla yogurt. The hint of almond was very nice in this. Next time, I'll peel the bananas first and THEN freeze them, or I'll let them thaw a bit before peeling. Trying to peel frozen bananas was extremely difficult!! The peeling was difficult to remove, as were the "stringy things" that sometimes adhere to the banana from the peeling. I had frozen stubs for fingertips, and it took way longer than the listed 2 minutes just to peel the bananas!! Otherwise, it was excellent! Read More

Maybe I did something wrong but I made this twice and both times the kiwi flavor was so tart it was like sucking on a lemon. I make lots of smoothies with other fruits but I won't make them with kiwi again. Read More

This is the best smoothie I have tasted out of all my allrecipes.com smoothie experiments. Not only was it delicious, but it even looked gorgeous! It scaled very well, I scaled it to serve half as much as normal, and it turned out perfectly. The consistency was just right. I used frozen blueberries and vanilla yogurt, and it was a dream. Thick (just how I like my smoothies), and sweet, but not overpoweringly so. Definitely a 5-star recipe. Read More

This smoothie has such great flavor. I omitted the blueberries since they were out of season but the kiwi had a wonderful distinct flavor. I didn't freeze my banana and it turned out fine - just not as slushie (which is what I prefer!) This is going on the morning smoothie rotation! Read More

I loved this recipe and am planning on making it a lot. I didn't use kiwi though don't like it. Used unfrozen bananas frozen blueberries vanilla yogurt honey and vanilla extract. This is what I had on hand. I didn't use ice because of the frozen blueberries. Excellent nice and thick really cold and refreshing. I am going to try it next with mixed berries in place of the blueberries for something different. Thanks a lot for this great drink! Read More

Spectacular though I had to modify based on the ingredients I had available. I didn't have kiwi so I used mangos. I omitted blueberries completely and substituted vanilla for the almond extract. The taste weighted slightly to the banana side but no complaints at all--I love bananas. I'm looking forward to trying this as written. Thanks for the great smoothie recipe! Read More

I made this for my boys (3 and 7) and I and we all loved it! I made it the same except I didn't have kiwis on hand and my bananas weren't frozen. It was still delicious--the flavors blended wonderfully and the consistency was what I've been looking for. I've tried other smoothie recipes but this is the best by far. Read More
