I submitted this recipe with a slight mistake. 1 tsp. of almond extract might be too strong so I suggest cutting it down to a 1/2 a tsp. Thanks Read More

too much orange and not enough cherry. I won't be bothering with this smoothie again. Read More

This recipe is delicious! I used Dannon cherry yogurt and absolutely loved it. Tried it without the banana and using Breyer's light vanilla ice cream and 2% instead of the half and half and that was excellent too. This will be a favorite in my kitchen from now on. Read More

Really really good smoothie. Orange-cherry-almond flavor. Better than Orange Julius makes but I never liked them that much anyway. Read More

What a nice flavor!- A little too fatty for me so I did change a couple things- I used Fat Free yogurt and instead of half & half used 1/4 cup FF whipped topping- still thick and delicious! Read More

This is definitely our favorite - voted #1 by all my children. I did take into account the 1/2 teaspon of almond extract. I added a frozen banana and a little more ice to make it a little thicker for our tastes. We've already shared this recipe with our friends. Definitely a keeper! Read More

I love the taste of almond so i excitedly went out and bought each ingredient to this smoothie and unfortunately it was a complete letdown. I made it for 2 friends and they wouldn't even finish theirs! I tasted mostly the banana and the consistency was lacking that smoothie feel. Read More

I made this with strawberry yogurt as I couldn't find cherry. I liked the almond taste but wasn't crazy about using canned mandarins (the flavor was just ok for us; a little too subtle). I'll make this again when Colorado peaches are in season. Read More
