"I like my smoothies frostier than this...this was more of a straight-up drink...but my kids liked it. It was flavorful and tasty. I added a bit of ice to mine to make it thicker and colder, but then it was watered down. I think I'd maybe freeze the bananas next time so the shake would be thicker. I'll bet it would be really good substituting strawberries for the blueberries, too. This recipe filled a 1-liter carafe, making it easy to pour and serve to my family. Each serving was 6 oz."

"Decent. I think I prefer smoothies with yogurt rather than milk. But everyone drank them up! Yielded 4 smoothies.
