It was delicious! Like another person who commented I used two tablespoons of honey instead of teaspoons. And I actually used a pinch of ground cinnamon and a few cubes of ice to make it colder. I was impressed with this simple recipe.

Response: Thank you Jillian for the feedback and tip.

OMG I cannot even begin to say how good this is. I added protein powder to mine as well and it is definitely my all time favorite smoothie.

Oh my god this is delicious. I added peanut butter just for a little bit more flavor and protein.

I used this recipe and it is delicious even though the milk had to be substituted. Regular almond milk tastes nice and with around a handful of blueberries it made it a bit better in taste for my sister and I.
