Loved this recipe! Substituted mango because it is what I had and raw local honey instead of stevia. I also threw in a dash of nutmeg. Delicious. Read More

Perhaps it was a bad idea to omit the Stevia. I tried 1/2 cup of blueberries instead. I'm sure it's very good for me but it's not delicious. Read More

Interesting. I left out the stevia and any sweetener. Definitely a kick start to your day. I can see where mango would be a nice addition to or sub for the banana. This is one of those recipes you just have to try yourself to understand how good it really is. Read More

I made changes that probably altered this smoothie significantly but that's part of the beauty of smoothies! I had powdered turmeric & didn't realize this recipe called for the root until I'd put everything else in. So I put in a scoop of my powdered & added a roasted beet left over from last night's dinner. I probably used a little less cayenne pepper & subbed honey for stevia probably almost 1/2 tsp. It's really an interesting flavor I can definitely taste the beet but I love the spice & it's surprisingly really great! Next time I'll be sure to buy turmeric root so I can try it as its intended.

I used coconut milk and ground turmeric and ginger. I wanted to make this and didn't have fresh. Very good. Love the spice and kick of the pepper. Read More

I wanted to like it so badly, but I don’t love it. I only did 1 tbsp ginger but it overpowered everything. I was hoping I’d taste the almond butter! I tried adding more honey (I subbed for stevia) and even some mango juice to help, but it only did a little bit to tone down the ginger. In defense of the recipe I gave 4 stars b/c I didn’t have turmeric root so used powder, so that could change it. I’d like to try again with less ginger. Read More
