I really try to follow the recipe particularly if I'm the first reviewer but I must say that I had my doubts about 2 tsp of lemon extract but I added it. Well I was right not only does the lemon extract overpower everything it also leaves it very artificial tasting. I tried to weaken the lemon extract by adding a little vanilla which helped a bit. I would recommend starting with 1/2 tsp taste and if more is needed add it. The vanilla wafers thickened it nicely and contributed good flavor but overall this smoothie was a disappointment.
