I thought this was a great drink high on protein. It's not the average fruit smoothie but for healthy quality it's quite good. Thanks for sharing will use again:) Read More

I'm not sure I enjoyed the nutmeg in this drink. Otherwise it was flavorful and had a creamy texture. Thanks Marianne. Read More

I thought that this was a great recipe. I eliminated the egg and replaced the wheat germ with flaxseed meal due to having a wheat allergy. All in all it's a nice quick smoothie to throw together quickly in the morning. Read More

I used 1 frozen banana 1 cup almond milk pasteurized egg whites instead of a raw egg and the wheat germ honey vanilla and nutmeg. It made a thin smoothie so I added some ice. I might make it again. Read More

THE BEST banana smoothie I've ever had! I eliminated the wheat germ (because i didn't have any) and it turned out fine. You have to try this if you love bananas. Read More

I have experimented with many of the smoothie recipes featured in this site and this is by far the best. Just a few minor tweaks (FROZEN banana VANILLA ALMOND milk and PASTEURIZED LIQUID egg)have made this The Perfect Breakfast Smoothie simple to assemble not too sweet and stick to your ribs until lunchtime. Kudos to you marianne! Read More
