"I made this today as part of our ' big breakfast diet'- we eat most our days carbs and sweets in the morning having protein and veggies at dinner.

It was super sweet, not in a good way. Next time I'll cut way back on the added sugar. But it was good and I will be making this drink again"

"The drink is much more tart than I was expecting, which is why it IS a good "wake-up" drink. It says "serve immediately" because it will separate in the fridge, but you can stir it and it will be fine. It's light, frothy, and VERY easy to make. :)"
