I made this smoothie for my health class - it scored alot of points from me for high nutrition and a lower sugar content than most smoothies. Also, my students loved it and I am so happy they enjoyed something that is good for them!
WONDERFUL! Love the orange flavor here. It was a bit thick and I had to keep adding lots of OJ to offset the thickness from the frozen berries, however, that was a bonus because it meant we had more to drink! I doubled the recipe but with all the added oj to thin it out this served 4! PERFECT! Love the added wheat germ and my 2 and 4 year old LOVED this!
TERRIFIC!!! My daughter and son really enjoyed this smoothie. They had no idea there was yogurt or wheat germ included. They told me it was better than what we buy at the smoothie shop! Thanks NC for a great recipe. Made for Bevy Tag Apr08
