    Today I made this recipe using frozen strawberries instead of the ice and I liked it even better. I didn't freeze the banana this time or last. - 7/7/15

  • This is very good. I did modify the recipe some. I used agave nectar and put frozen strawberries in instead of the ice cubes and it was really delicious. Definitely will make it again. - 7/15/11

  • I used this recipe without the instant coffee and it was still very very good. It really hit my sweet tooth for chocolate. I also used agave syrup instead of honey and it is still very good!! - 6/1/11

  • My 13 year old son made this smoothie for us to share today! Thanks for such a great recipe!!!!!!!! Who needs Starbucks! :-) The only thing changed: I am lactose intolerant so he used my light vanilla soy milk and omitted the vanilla flavoring. - 2/22/10

  • This was yummy. Definitely satisfied my chocolate craving. By mistake I doubled the cocoa powder. I also used Truvia instead of sugar or honey. Will definitely keep making this one. - 1/6/10
