Great recipe, but tweaked it a bit. First of all, I added the lime and sugar to the blender alone. I then strained the mixture. Next, I poured the mixture back into the blender, added the milk, ice, and then I added some Vodka which is purely optional. It was very refreshing, frothy, and creamy.
Following the recipe as is, I thought it was "ok". I think perhaps most people are more used to the bitter aftertaste this drink leaves. But other than that, it's pretty healthy for you and tastes decent. I would probably add more sugar next time.
After seeing some other reviewers suggest switching out the limes for lemons -- and highly preferring anything lemon to anything lime -- I tried that and found it waaaay too bitter. As I changed the recipe I'm not going to yet review it until I give the actual recipe a fair shake, but to even remotely get it to something drinkable I added an extra cup and a half of water, just threw the whole sweetened condensed milk in, and added an extra half a cup of sugar -- and then poured it over more ice to thin it out more. Again, my fault for using two big lemons. (oh, apparently I have to rate it -- putting a 3/5 until I manage to go to the store and get some actual limes)
