READER'S COMMENT:
"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 "

Great for kids

It was very delicious! For a healthier option, I didn't use the sugar. My child thought it was tart and needed sugar, but she drank it anyway. I thought it was wonderful, but don't recommend Splenda:) add some honey maybe instead..

Good taste

My New Morning Routine

I blend this recipe up every morning in lieu of coffee (and it's a lot faster than waiting for a pot to brew). It keeps my appetite satisfied until lunch, keeps my mind awake and alert until well after lunch-- I'd suggest adding some kale & spinach to bring down the tartness of the berries and add some extra nutrients! I also omit the sugar!

filling, sweet, energy, easy, quick, cheap

Tasty but missing something

I doubled the recipe & used only strawberries. I forgot to freeze the fresh strawberries last night so I added some ice. Instead of sugar I used honey. I thought the smoothie was good but one of the children said it was missing something & another said it could use some sugar (that one has a sweet tooth!) I brought out their packages of Emergen-C that I normally put in their smoothies & after adding that they had no complaints! Added my ZipFizz for extra energy & vitamins to mine & called it a meal! Perfect!

Delicious!

I made this the night before work for my partner and I. I doubled the ingredients and got 2x 500mL cups and 1x 300mL. I had the 300mL this morning and feel satisfied and awake. It is a great way to start the day! I will be making again!
Instead of tofu I put in Symbio yoghurt and I left out the sugar

Taste, Very filling, Great start to the day

Don't use Soy or Splenda

Soy is GMO, very dangerous to your health, as is Splenda, which is a neurotoxin.
Better to use one date, honey or Stevia as a sweetener.
Omit soy; use banana, or chia seeds as thickener.

Soy & Soy products are detrimental to health. Spenda is aneurotoxin
