SMOOTHIES!

I have become obsessed with making smoothies after my mom showed me this amazing mixer she bought a while back and these nifty little easy to follow recipe magazines you can pick up at any grocery store. Smoothie King withdrawals have caused me to start making my own.

I made a short video awhile back following one of the recipes. I’ve been experimenting, the other day I made a chocolate strawberry smoothie. It was pretty yummy. :9 But for this video I made a blueberry fruit smoothie, not sure why the blueberry gets to be in the name, but that’s what it was called. You can always substitute with fruit of your liking, my favorite combination is raspberries and strawberries. *Tip: sometimes the seeds sort of get in the way, so if you hate pulp then you might not like the texture the seeds leave behind, so you can always strain the smoothie before serving it in a glass.* Also, I’ve been having fun with using the cute cups my mom has acquired. Making a smoothie was actually a lot harder than I thought it would be, of course that could just be because I’m incompetent when it comes to making things that don’t require yarn or fabric. Before using actual measurements and this new mixer, I would just wing it. I thought making a smoothie was just about adding certain ingredients together.  Oh was I wrong, I created some pretty gross concoctions. I won’t scare you with the details.  But now my smoothies have been coming out pretty good, I’ve been having a smoothie every other day. Perfect treat for a hot day.
