"Stocked up on bags of frozen berries from Costco, along with the frozen cranberries I have on hand, I was able to follow this recipe right on down & we had a most delicious smoothie treat! Definitely a recipe worth keeping around! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in Everyday Is a Holiday tag]"
"Oh, WOW! I love ginger, and had some very fine crystalized ginger pieces from my last preparation, and used the very last of it that was left after making mikekey's Recipe #263179. So, therefore, didn't have to use any further sweetening. A wonderful smoothie for my last day of Comfort Cafe Summer 2009! Thnx so much for posting, BakinBaby."
"Very thick and rich indeed! I had to "drink" it with a spoon :) I like my smoothies really thick so that was great for me. I also found the ginger to be the prominent flavor, which I enjoyed, but this is not for someone who is unsure about liking ginger. For the green tea, I brewed Gunpowder Green Temple of Heaven type of green tea, which was strong enough to add some flavor through the rich ginger & berries - I recommend this variety of green tea here. I substituted 1/4 cup more blueberries & 1/4 cup more sliced strawberries for the 1/2 c cranberries as I couldn't find any. Thanks for posting! [Made & Reviewed for Everyday is a Holiday Tag]"
"This made a perfect post-swimming treat for a hot afternoon! DS (18 m) gobbled it up, and I think I might make more to freeze as popsicles! I, too, found the ginger flavor to be more prevalent than the green tea, but no matter since we love ginger around here! I just used bottled minced ginger. I also skipped the honey, as the fruit is sweet enough for us. Thanks for a keeper...I agree with CoffeeB that this is a great afternoon refresher. Made for Summer Comfort Cafe."
"This is so thick, rich and delicious. I didn't change a thing and used your recipes ingredients as listed. The ginger comes thru nicely as mine was the candied variety. What a great afternoon pick-me-up:-) Made for HolidayTag."
