I made 1/2 the amount serving 2 of us. Used hemp seeds in place of the flax. Loved starting my day with this nutritious drink. Thanks!

I've made and thoroughly enjoyed this several times. :) My only change was to omit the ice cubes and - using fresh berries - to make this the night before. So easy then to grab it in a Tupperware container for a yummy, healthy breakfast on-the-run! Thank you for adding such a delicious smoothie to my list of smoothies made regularly. Made for Zaar Stars Tag.

So I tried out this recipe today with a few modifications and it turned out to taste very watery and bland and just not appetizing. I halved the recipe to make 1 serving yet made enough to serve at least 4 people. I think it might've been the nonfat plain Greek yogurt that I used although I did follow a previous commenter's suggestion of using a plain yogurt then adding vanilla extract. I tried adding an overripe banana into it last minute to try and give it taste, to sweeten it up, but unfortunately it did nothing really...
