Reviews for A.M. Rush Espresso Smoothie
"I make smoothies almost every morning and then switch to coffee at work so I thought I would try to combine them. I substituted vanilla almond milk for the fat free milk and found it to be very refreshing"
"This is a nice summery change, but not truly delicious. I skipped the flaxseed. The banana flavour was a little odd; another time I'd skip the banana too and only use half the ice, as it was quite watery."
"I usually have this for breakfast 2 times a week and I love it. I am not a coffee drinker, but I really enjoy this smoothie. I used sf vanilla flavoring and sf cappuchino powder (wasn't paying attention at the store!) and actually put a whole banana in, instead of half. Love this recipe!!!"
"This is the best. I use Vanilla Almond milk and skip the vanilla syrup. Also use Vanilla Soy milk. Includes some great nutrients."
"I cant believe how much I liked this. Now I have to say that I didnt follow the recipe exactly. Because I did not have the vanilla syrup I improvised and instead used 2 tsp vanilla extract and 2 tsp pure maple syrup. And the only instant coffee I had was actually Starbucks Via Iced ready brew. It is already a little sweet so Im not sure if that or the other made up for the sweet I was missing but it worked. If I try again with different ingredients I will post again."
"quick and easy! I threw this together this together on the way out the door. I felt like I was getting some nutritional value too!"
