BFF Smoothie Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: May 13, 2015
This is a great recipe for beginners to the smoothie world. I omitted the whey, and added a tbsp of vanilla extract. I added black cherries & 1 banana, blueberries. And I added just over a tbsp of fresh honey. omitted sugar for a little healthier option. This was both sweet & tart, but perfect! Fills you up. Thanks for submitting!!

In my experience frozen strawberries aren't very sweet (unless you freeze them yourself at the peak of ripeness) so I didn't have high hopes for a sweet smoothie since this called for no sweetener AND plain Greek yogurt but the vanilla whey protein powder had just enough in it to make it the perfect sweetness. I chose to replace the milk with water since it called for both yogurt and protein powder. I also cut the yogurt to 1/2 cup (I tend to think greek yogurt is quite tart). Milk, protein powder and yogurt seemed like protein overkill for me. I didn't have mint in my garden so I skipped that also. The smoothie is VERY thick from the frozen fruit. Even my Vitamix needed a little attention to get ingredients to blend but adding more liquid would help solve this problem. I chose to give it a little time and use the tamper to push the ingredients into the blades. This may be a problem with a regular blender so letting the fruit thaw a bit before blending would be helpful. This smoothie turned out very tasty. I enjoyed it!
