I didn't love this one. I rate it between a 3-4. I am glad I read the first review about the strong cinnamon taste. As a result, I only did 1/4 tsp. and it still was a dominant flavor. After blending I found this to be more icy then creamy, which I prefer. So, I just left it in my Vitamix until it was smooth and all the ingredients were well incorporated. By that point, it was more like a thick cold chocolate milk with a hint of cinnamon and peanut flavor. Only change I made was subbing peanuts, 2 Tablespoons, for the peanut powder. Read More

After reading the reviews, I omitted the cinnamon. Other than that I followed the recipe, using a frozen banana. I like a thicker smoothie and this was very runny. I did not add more ice because it would have watered it down and to me it lackes flavor as is. Will not make this again. Read More

Made it exactly as listed except only had 1/4 cup of almond milk so I added 1/4 of whole milk. I also used a frozen banana. Refreshing and delicious. Read More

I like the fact that this smoothie has fewer calories in it due to the powdered peanut butter and the unsweetened almond milk. I really like the peanut butter and chocolate combo. However, I don't care for the cinnamon flavor in it...and I really like cinnamon, just not in this particular smoothie. I will omit it the next time I make this drink. Read More

I made this one and it tasted awesome and was super easy to make, I would tone down the cinnamon a little though. Read More

I really liked it. I didn't add any cinnamon or cocoa powder since I used peanut butter powder with hazelnut which is pretty sweet for me. And I also used almond milk instead. Read More
