I had spinach and avocado I needed to use before they got old, so I did an ingredient search for ideas besides making a salad. I keep frozen bananas on hand. This was a good smoothie recipe. Wishing I had coconut water to substitute/add to it though. I added matcha powder. Great snack/lunch recipe. Read More

Smooth and creamy the vanilla is definitely a must! I used almond milk since I didn't have regular milk. Next time I might use less honey and more spinach. Read More

So very delicious!!! I use Almond milk to make this dairy free- reducing the heaviness that cow's milk leaves in the gut. My go-to morning smoothie. Light and fresh, but plenty filling at the same time!!! Read More

Delicious - I left out the honey and still found it to be sweet enough! Read More

I tried this smoothie for the first time today and it was delicious! I omitted the honey, which was not needed since the banana added enough sweetness to the smoothie! Read More

I absolutely loved it. I used a frozen banana frozen spinach and almond milk instead of 1% no ice cubes I added water and it was still very creamy and delicious. Next time I will not use as much honey or no honey at all and will add some flax seeds or chia seeds. Yum Yum! Read More

Very good! I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk and had to add more to thin it a bit. This still came out on the thick but smooth and creamy side. My banana was frozen so I skipped the ice. I also added a scoop of vanilla whey protein powder. Thanks for the recipe which I'd make again. Read More
