Reviews for Berry Smoothie
"Sorry for the miss spelling.I don't know why not. Soften it some then put it in your blender.I have done that to smoothies because it is only me also."
"I don't know why now. Freeze it them let it soften some and put it in your blender."
"Okay, this and the comments sounds VERY good. However, I'm the only one to drink a smoothie. Can this be frozen for future use?Thanks!"
"I made it the same as the recipe and then made a few changes the next time.. I used berry blend from Gordans, the drinkable yogurt in place of milk, and it needed no sugar at all.. delicious both ways.."
"I use Splenda, cut milk to 1/2c add yogurt and 1/2 banana and low calorie and good for you."
"If you use Splenda instead of sugar, and skim or 1% milk, that cuts down on calories too!"
"I make a wonderful smoothie also.Take 1/2 cup orange juice; 5 ice cubes; spoonful of peanut butter (organic if you have it); 1 banana; whatever fresh fruit you have (I suggest strawberries & blueberries; a handful of walnuts; 1 tsp flax seed; and half scoop of whey protein (if you have it). Blend till smooth. Oh so yummy and healthy too. Marilyn"
"This sounds really good and I'll try it. I do have a similar smoothie that I make and would like to share: Mix 1 small carton of vanilla or plain yogurt, 1/2 c. pomegranate juice, and 1 c. frozen mixed berries. Blend. Really good.Sue"
"try adding some plain yogurt in place of the milk for a thicker shake. if you add Faje or another greek yogurt you will add protien. also, try adding almonds & blend up as directed & that works as protien too.remember: 20 mins after blending this it starts to change into sugar. so for the healthiest smoothie you should drink it before 20mins has elapsed.Kat"
"AND, it has 8 grams of fiber total, so about 3 grams per serving. Yum-O!"
"It's an even better nutritional bonus if you use a non-caloric sweetener (like Splenda) instead of the sugar and swap out the milk for an 8oz. container of your favorite no-fat or low fat yogurt. As a bonus that makes it nice and creamy and thick!"
"The fiber just posted is for the whole recipe. For 1/3 of the recipe it would be about 2.7 g fiber."
"The nutritional info is incorrect.1/2 cup of raspberries = 4.2 g fiber, and 1 cup sliced strawberries = 3.8 g fiber."
"How does the recipe have 0 grams of fiber with all those berries in it????"
