"This smoothie is quite tasty. I didn't add any sugar but did add a bit of toasted wheat germ. Sweetness was perfect for my taste, but the kids thought it was a bit tart. Either way we all loved it and have made a few times.q "

Good Morning Smoothie :)

This was delicious!
Frozen Raspberries, Black Berries, & Cherries
Frozen Pineapple bits
1 banana
Organic Pulp Free Orange Juice
1/4-1/2 tsp of Vanilla Extract
YUMMY!! :) no sugar, no dairy!


why on earth would you add sugar???


I just dont have alot of food in my house. To be honest i really needed something more easy it seemed like all the ingredients were the stuff that arnt in my house. I dont think i have 1 ingredient from that list. :( My family dosnt have any food in the house... except for like canned food. No milk or cereal no cheese nothing. I just wish there was something more " Easy" for my morning. We were literly tearing apart the house for money...... i really think this was a waste of time to read this. I am dissapointed i really thought i would like this. :'(
but on the bright side i think it looks beautiful and i LOVE ur train of thought on the strawberries! :)

Some minor adjustments

I didn't add sugar or OJ. I added a tablespoon of flaxseed and a fist-full of spinach (I try to sneak in spinach whenever I can because I hate the taste). Much better! :)

Fruity and filling
Nice refreshing,fruity taste.

I did everything but add the sugar orange juice has enough sugar in it.

easy,healthy, tasty.
