    Loved this recipe! Substituted mango because it is what I had, and raw local honey instead of stevia. I also threw in a dash of nutmeg. Delicious.  -  19 Jun 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Interesting. I left out the stevia and any sweetener. Definitely a kick start to your day. I can see where mango would be a nice addition to or sub for the banana. This is one of those recipes you just have to try yourself to understand how good it really is.  -  11 Feb 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made changes that probably altered this smoothie significantly, but that's part of the beauty of smoothies! I had powdered turmeric & didn't realize this recipe called for the root until I'd put everything else in. So I put in a scoop of my powdered & added a roasted beet left over from last night's dinner. I probably used a little less cayenne pepper & subbed honey for stevia, probably almost 1/2 tsp. It's really an interesting flavor, I can definitely taste the beet, but I love the spice & it's surprisingly really great! Next time I'll be sure to buy turmeric root so I can try it as its intended.  -  13 Jun 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
