  5. OMG .....Just checking
    I did it from memory and was a bit off, but one orange peeled frozen, three bananas pelled frozen, three tbsp cacao powder, one half tbsp of orange extract, ice cubes and hemp milk (I used coconut milk cuz there are so few options) but d$#@ it was bitter and no matter how much agave nectar I added, it wouldn't get any better. What did I do wrong?

    1. Hmm, not really seeing what would cause it to be so bitter. Make sure you get all the pith and membrane off the orange when you peel it and maybe use just a few drops of the orange extract. Let me know if that improves it :)
