About this recipe: Exactly what it says on the tin - simple and straightforward and kids love it.
This was a good, refreshing smoothie that was easy to make with ingredients we almost always have at home. It is not as creamy as those make with yogurt and/or milk, but definitely easy and quick. After a taste test, my only change was adding some more fruit to take away some of the tartness of the orange juice. I could have drank it either way, but my daughter preferred it, (and I agree), with a few more strawberries and touch more banana. Also, if you are looking for that slushy texture, but don't want to water it down with too many ice cubes, use frozen bananas & strawberries... you could even freeze some OJ in ice cube trays! We might try that! Overall, a good, quick, easy way to get in a great serving of fruits!! - 10 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I used a frozen banana which eliminated the need for ice. This was delicious! NOTE: I'll use this recipe for a summer yogurt pop, just add a cup or so of greek yogurt. I bet that would be really tasty! - 24 Mar 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Yummy! I added a few more strawberries, used a frozen banana and omitted the ice cubes. Plus, I used organic, whole orange juice (not from concentrate, which typically has added sugar). It was only slightly sweet, not tart; the perfect accompaniment to lightly savory sandwiches. And a great way to get in lots of healthy fruit! - 14 Feb 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
