Didn't know what to think at first but I've just made this smothie as a snack and I absolutely love it. I didn't have a smoothie maker but I just mashed up all the ingredients (although i didn't put sugar in it - was already quite sweet:D ) and ate it with a spoon from a bowl. I also added a few chopped up brazil nuts and I think when I make it again I'll try it with a few oats tossed in. Very filling and healthy. Def would recommend! Read More
