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

    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.

    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

    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 :)

    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.

    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.
