Reviews for Tropical Pineapple Smoothies
"Yummy and refreshing! Thank you for sharing."
"would indeed make it again. For the sugar I substituted sweet and Low packets. It turned out great. Thank you."
"To marian08: If a recipe doesn't indicate draining the liquid ~ as is the case with the crushed pineapple here ~ then I think you should use the whole can, juice and all. Hope this helps!"
"I omitted the sugar and extracts and used coconut milk. Very good for a hot summer day."
"Yummy! I approximated the measurements and made one serving. I personally don't think the recipe needs the sugar (or sweetener) I am a sugar lover and found it very sweet. Next time I will try it without and see how it turns out."
"this is so good, I love it"
"I used Splenda instead of sugar and it came out just as nice and since mom and I are both diabetic, we really loved this."
"I love this smoothie!"
