    Milkshakes are out, smoothies like this one are just as yummy!

    I have not tried the recipe though I will. I was looking for a recipe including yogurt. This one mentioned yogurt in the description, though it uses silken tofu instead. Thought you might like to know.

    I really enjoyed a variation on this smoothie which involved substituting frozen strawberries for the mixed berries, orange juice for the pomegranate, and 1 T of sugar for the honey (only because I was out of the latter). I love the addition of silken tofu, and was pleasantly surprised that I couldn't detect any of the tofu taste. The texture of the tofu also gave the smoothie great body. A great, versatile recipe!

    This sounds so good. Thanks for the information. Did you see that there is a typo in the recipe? "neccessary" is spelled wrong.

    I like substituting Agave Nectar for the honey. it's sweeter so you can use less.
