I have never been a smoothie girl. I don’t know why. I think it has to do with my general dislike of most yogurts and my association of smoothies with yogurt. But during a recent cold I found myself craving something smoothie-esque. And so I tried one. And I loved it. And a new obsession was born.
Course now I want to master smoothie making at home. My first attempt wasn’t half bad. Some frozen bananas, strawberries and raspberries mixed with all natural raspberry lemonade, a dash of sugar and blended it all up.
To make our smoothies I used a regular blender. I have noticed there are lots of smoothie making gadgets out on the market. Anybody tried them? Are they better than a regular run of the mill blender? Do I really need another gadget? These are not questions that keep me up at night but I do wonder…
I am hoping that these smoothies will bring us some smooth sailing around these parts. The first 6 months of 2012 have been rather choppy and we could uses some smoother waters. Or at least smoothie-r beverages in shades of pink. That’s gotta be a good start right?
