    This is an OK recipe. I have tried it with several different combinations of fruit, but have found that the strawberries work best as the “base” fruit. I used cow’s milk with vanilla extract rather than soy milk as I think the soy milk ruins the taste of the beverage.

    I have tried various fruit combinations, as this recipe is a good guide. The soy-milk is much healthier, and beware of extracts if you are on medication that forbids alcohol: extracts are 36 percent alcohol.
