    Sweet, smooth, and a bit earthy...I was full for hours. Made just as recipe states.

  • Pretorria 9 Mar, 2013

    At first, all I tasted was the tahini, but I got used to it and ended up really enjoying this smoothie. For everyone that is looking for ideas for all that left over tahini: use it to make your own hummus, salad dressing, asian sauce for noodles, or in a marinade for meats.

    Loved it,had to make it without tahini didn't find it where i'm at. it was delicious had it this morning (its my first day)

  • Christinemz 24 Feb, 2013

    tasted a little too tahini-y for me at first (and I am Middle Eastern and love tahini) so I added a little more water and half a banana for a little more substance. Sipping on it as we speak - delicious and refreshing! never would have thought to use tahini

    very light and delicious!

  • Skina3 18 Feb, 2013

    The recipe was pretty good but my sister and I are in agreement that tahini is an acquired taste (sort of earthy, clean dirt taste) as well as being expensive. Also I am left with a whole jar of it left over, I have been eating it with pears which is pretty good :)

    LOVED it!! Made it exactly as directed. On my forever list.

    That was supposed to say "This smoothie was really good..."

  • vegantobe 31 Jan, 2013

    This smoothie. I've never used tahini before and now I have a full jar of it. Guess I'll be looking for tahini recipes.

  • ferg4africa 30 Jan, 2013

    I was really nervous about the recipe. I thought the combination of mango and tahini was odd, but for me it totally worked. I think this is my new favorite smoothie.

  • JAF87 29 Jan, 2013

    My favorite smoothie recipe ever...its definitely getting me through my first week of detox. I was nervous as I'm not a fan of tahini but it doesn't bother me (although my boyfriend does say tastes like drinking Chinese food....?) in this. I do substitute green tea for the water, just because I'm a 12 cup a day coffee drinker and need the caffeine

  • Liza_Nelson_45 28 Jan, 2013

    I also added almond butter instead of tahini and increased to 3/4 cup of water since the smoothie was pretty thick. Not my favourite recipe but it won't prevent me from carrying on.

  • HisSonflower 27 Jan, 2013

    I also used coconut water instead of water.

  • HisSonflower 27 Jan, 2013

    Was out of tahini so I used almond butter like the other reviewer said. Good addition. I don't think I'll ever use the tahini.

  • KristinSimms 25 Jan, 2013

    Not sure why they chose tahini for this fruit recipe ... even when I was adding it I thought, "This shouldn't go together." While I am drinking it, I am looking for an alternative to tahini. I understand we are cutting out animal products the first week like dairy, maybe freeze rice or coconut milk to add thickness. Hmm ...

  • Haleakalawow 25 Jan, 2013

    I loved it :)

  • IrishEyesAreSmilin 25 Jan, 2013

    Tahini for breakfast was awful. I will stick to using it in dips and dressings.

    For this recipe, next time I'm using almond butter instead.

  • Cat1000 24 Jan, 2013

    I used a 1/2 tbsp. of the Tahini so the taste wasn't so overwhelming.

  • foodsnob 23 Jan, 2013

    I used fresh mango and added a little plain yogurt. The tahini has a strong flavor but it is still tasty!

  • gailsox 22 Jan, 2013

    Very good. My store did not have just frozen mango, so I purchased frozen mixed fruit. A great way to start the day.

  • gailsox 22 Jan, 2013

    The store did not have just frozen mango, so I got mixed fruit. This taste very good.

  • DesertSunrise 22 Jan, 2013

    This one, to me, kind of tasted like drinking hummus, thanks to the tahini. It wasn't too good for me, but I'm looking forward to trying other recipes!

  • SIMPLESAL 20 Jan, 2013

    This was a delicious way to start the detox! I will definitely make this again, and I was thrilled that the slightly thawed mango made perfect finger food for my baby!
