  1. Should be 2 tsp of honey. Your editors need to make the Tbsp capitalized to distinguish easily b/t Tbsp and tsp. I’m surprised the nutritional info isn’t listed. I love these shakes, however. All natural ingredients!

  2. Still waaaaaay too high in carbs! I mix up a batch of Crystal Light (I like Cherry Pomegranate) pour some into ice trays and freeze. Then, I pop a few of those into the blender with some of the unfrozen Crystal Light, a couple scoops of unflavored whey protein powder, and a scoop of PB2 (peanut butter powder) for a PBJ smoothie.

  3. Are you really supposed to use a whole teaspoon of cocoa?  The recipe in the book calls for 1/4 tsp.! 

    1. Check the book again. It shows under the “flavorings” heading you can choose either 1 tsp. cocoa or 1/4 tsp. cinnamon.

  4. 2 TABLESPOONS of honey?????  My recipe for smoothies in the diet book says teaspoons and don’t be tempted to add more.  Is this a mistake???
