It’s getting warm up here in Massachusetts. Yes, I used to live in Florida and I know this warm up here, really isn’t hot like what I grew up with. HOWEVER!!! There is no central air up here! NO CENTRAL AIR! In Florida, I had central air and that was kinda of a must!
Ok so back to the smoothie-what a better way to cool down than with an ice cold smoothie! I checked my freezer and I had some blueberries. In my fridge, I had some yogurt that I decided to throw into the mix. In my cupboard, I had some local honey and chia seeds. My first job was at a smoothie place in Florida, I learned skills that have carried me through my career.
By the way-this is how I like to cook in my home…checking what I have on hand and whip some food up. You could say it is like having a mystery basket competition in my home all the time, just minus the actual competition. I get asked all the time, “What is your favorite dish?” My favorite thing to make is to create something out of nothing ? Just look how I made the smoothie-once you learn the fundamentals you can create anything.
When I make my smoothies I buy my fruits frozen, they are cheaper at times. I also keep them frozen when I blend them up, so I don’t need to add ice.
