  1. I made this with frozen mango (no ice) and a lot more orange juice. The kids loved it! Reviewed for Healthy Choices ABC tag game.
  2. All things considered, I was sure this would be a thick one, & it was, but nicely so! I changed things a bit, using, as I did, a frozen banana & mango! I also used almost 1/4 cup of orange juice & just a small amount of crushed ice! Very, very thick & VERY, VERY TASTY! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Healthy Choices ABC]
  3. I made this for the kids this afternoon. They really enjoyed it. Great after school "pick me up". It is already requested for breakfast tomorrow morning! Thanks!
  4. This is a great, healthy pick me up with a lovely fresh and fruity flavour. It's a very thick smoothie, so I ended up 'eating' it with a spoon. If you'd want to drink it I'd suggest adding a little more orange juice.
