Wow, what a poor little beat-up recipe! Check out these reviews. One person hated the idea that it calls for food coloring. Huh. One person thinks that it tastes - impossibly, look at the ingredients - like *flour*. Another person is obviously bored and wants to insult someone. A couple people think it's not sweet enough - okay, I might buy that. I made this exactly as written this morning. A perfectly decent strawberry-banana smoothie, a little heavy on the cinnamon (which I thought was interesting rather than offensive). My fruit was quite ripe, so the sweetness was perfect for me. Mine is just another opinion. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I'm sorry but the minute I read that the recipe called for food coloring I had to say something. A smoothie is a drink made with fruit so don't go and mess it up with something like that. Read More

If I could give this recipe a lower star rating I would. I love the strawberry-banana flavors together but with a recipe like this I think this person should be banned from any kitchen anywhere. Read More

My daughter made this because she was craving a smoothie and it was easy to make. She said it tasted like flour. We had to add more strawberries and some vanilla extract to even make it drinkable. Sorry not a good one for us. Read More

This was great! I added extra strawberries and some orange juice. That gave it a little extra flavor. I wanted it to be thicker so I added ice. I highly recommend it. Read More

This is a fine smoothie recipe. I was scared of the cinnamon, so I skipped that and added a little OJ, but this is a quite normal recipe for a smoothie. I made it after a workout and enjoyed it. I don't often review recipes, but this one has gotten a lot of unfair 1-stars. If you feel the need to add whipped cream, ice cream and sugar, I suggest you search for milkshake next time, not smoothie. Read More
