    This was pretty good as-is. I used frozen mango to help make it really cold (besides being convenient) and added about a quarter cup of fat free greek yogurt just to make it a little creamier. - 8/16/10

    I love Green Tea Lattes from SB and Seattle's Best... this was very close! ... Only I added a little sweetener and used fat free milk instead of water... delicious! Thanks! - 9/7/08

    Delicious! I added a packet of Sweet N Low for some added sweetness. But the drink was great and refreshing. - 10/21/07

  • I am going to add half a packet of stevia to mine ... I think I steeped the green tea too long or something because its quite bitter ... but definitely a great morning starter... I used caffeinated tea and next time I would use another half a mango:-) Cheers - 1/4/08

  • I love all of the ingredients to this smoothie but thought that the combination was really bitter. Next time I will definitely add some sweetener and give it another try! - 3/18/07
