This was good. I doubled the recipe, but felt it could use something more... for more sweetness. Maybe I'll try peanut butter next time.

This is a good smoothie but I also add grapes and fresh ginger. The ginger gives it that extra zing. You can also substitute soy yogurt for the milk.

I don't drink soy milk so I used fat free milk and a teaspoon of vanilla flavoring. Next time, I'll use the whole banana.

This was okay, but there wasn't that much flavor. I think I might try it again, substituting fruit yogurt for the soy milk and/or fresh bananas for frozen.

My husband and I use this recipe quite often, mostly as a quick lunch. Enjoy a lot.

I do this every morning, I also add oatmeal to it, It keeps satisfied all day much like the strawberry oatmeal smoothie. I love it, very full filling, and healthy.
