Yum! How could one not like a smoothie that qualifies as dessert in a glass?! I made 1 chg in the recipe, but not out of any intent to do so. My DH shopped for my RSC supplies & knew I favored coffee-flavored yoghurt, so that's what I got & used. Its use certainly did not seem to diminish how good this was. In fact, it may have enhanced it for me. I used my hand-held blender, so it was made in a flash & clean-up done even faster. The possibilities are endless simply by varying the flavor of preserves & yoghurt or by opting to use fresh berries in season w/sugar added. Thx for sharing your easy-fix recipe w/us & good luck in the contest! Made for RSC #15 & It could be you! *Edited to Add* I forgot to say that I also did not use ice cubes.
This was good, but I did find that the ice watered down the flavour a little for me and it was thicker than I liked - I made it again with some vanilla almond milk added it and no ice cubes and I liked it a lot better! As well, instead of a graham cracker, I used some graham cracker crumbs. Thanks!
This tasted a great and cake together quite well. Next time I won't use ice because I felt it ened up watrering down the smoothie, I"ll just freeze my bananas first. I really loved the graham cracker in it!
This is dessert in a glass! I did thin it with some milk at the end. (My grandson wanted to use a straw.) We both liked the chocolate pieces, but I would probably leave them out next time and stay with the fruit. Thank you for your contribution to RSC & good luck!
I did take one liberty with your recipe when I made a double batch ~ I left out the ice cubes (as I usually do) & substituted about 2/3 cup of apricot nectar! I also used frozen bananas to get a chilly frost effect! Very enjoyable, & very much a keeper! [Made & reviewed in RSC #15 Contest]
A very rich smoothie that feels like a creamy dessert. It is wonderful. but in future, I think I'd thin it a bit with soy milk and stretch it to two servings. I did use a honey graham cracker (all I had at home) and I believe it enhanced the flavor without really changing it from the original. The chocolate chips did blend in, but with little chocolate flecks: if you're picky you may want to melt and drizzle the chocolate chips into the blending mixture.
Yum..Yum. The best part of this for me is the little bitty pieces of choc-chips that were still left in the mix. A creative use of ingredients chef as they all compliment each other perfectly. Other flavors of jams and yogurt would work perfectly as well. Just don't forget the choco-chips:-) Made for RSC#15.
