This is wonderful as written. I didn't make any changes, and it made a great thick smoothie (like I like them -- to enjoy it longer!). The banana and mango complimented the raspberries wonderfully so it wasn't too tart, but just right. I didn't have any flax seeds, but hope to add them in next time for the nutrition. If you look at Rita's photo of this recipe, you see what you get -- a wonderful thick drink, but just think enough to enjoy it slowly instead of gulping it down in a hurry! I used a frozen banana and skim milk. Thanks for posting!

I didn't have flax seeds or raspberries, but I used blueberries instead. Used skim milk. This was so nice and thick and very tasty. Will definitely make again and also will try it with raspberries.

WOW! This smoothie is super delicious! I had it for breakfast today in the car, and it was so thick and cold, mmmm-mmmm! I'll definitely make this again and again! The only change I made was to use orange juice instead of milk, because I so enjoyed your other smoothie like that - oh, and I added a scoop of protein powder, too. Since my mango was frozen chunks, I used a cup of them, which worked out awesome. YUM!! Made for Veggie Tag #60, July.

It was pretty good, but not as good as I had expected it to be. It seemed like it was missing something, so I added some frozen peaches, but still not as good as expected.

This smoothie was a great way to start my day and it made me feel like I was in the Caribeaan! I used a combination of frozen berries instead of just frozen raspberries and as I don't like my drinks thick, I skipped out on the extra ice. Also, i didn't have any flax seed in the house(good excuse!?!?) so I skipped out on that too! All in all I was very happy with this drink!Thanks for the awsome recipe Rita L!!

Very easy, creamy, very healthy: just scrumptious. I used a all fresh fruit and soy milk, and I included the flax seeds but skipped the iceblocks. Thanks for sharing! I'll be making this again and again!

Yummy! I used frozen mixed berries and only half of a banana and mango... this was so good and healthy. I did add the flax seeds to make Rita proud! Thanks Rita!

Yummmmm. I had a mango to use up and lots of frozen bananas. I was sure I had rasberries.. well I didn't so I used blackberries. Left out the flax (I know Rita will be mad at me about it *LOL*) and left out the ice cubes. Thick and lovely as it was.

Mmmmm....I added Frozen Watermelon since I don't care for Mango. I can't wait to make another one.
