BLENDER BABES RECIPE TESTER NOTES
“This was fantastic. It was my first time using vanilla protein powder, and I was a bit nervous. I shouldn’t have been! It was creamy and delicious. I omitted the yogurt portion since I’m dairy-free. The nutmeg was a nice addition. This was as velvety as a milkshake and quite filling.
“The nutmeg really lends a nice warmth and the vanilla pulls everything together.”
“I would much rather have this banana almond smoothie knowing that it is better for you instead of a Diner’s Malt Shake with all of the sweets, creams, and dairy in it! Barely tasted Almond Butter, am surprised by that and that made me wondering that next time I would use About Time’s Vegan Chocolate Protein, maybe it would taste like Jamba Juice’s Chocolate Moo’d, I can already imagine and taste that!”
