MY REVIEW

"This is a fantastic recipe and is delicious. There is one small mistake in the recipe itself. It calls for 2 Tablespoons of vanilla extract. This is far too much and makes the smoothie very bitter. Just 1 teaspoon is all that's needed for the vanilla extract. Thanks guys!!!"

"This satisfied my sweet tooth. It is thick and very creamy. I felt like I was having a rich treat when in fact I was enjoying a guilt free treat! I made the whole batch, poured out 1 serving and froze the rest. The next day, I took another serving out of the freezer, let it sit on the counter for a bit and then blended it again. Delish treat again without the fuss of throwing it together!"
